Meaning of the vegan lifestyle

srijeda, 8. rujna 2010.

When a heart is trembling, stir the passions, so it is no surprise that many new vegans enters into such a lifestyle with a vengeance in mind. What healthy, compassionate, conscious person would not express his anger because of ruthless deception and the frequent injustices that serve as fuel of the modern economy? However, immersed in the ecstasy, many new vegans forget the real goal of veganism. It can lead to obsession if you forget the fact that compassion, not perfection, a sense of vegan living. Our world is not ideal. Therefore, working on trying to achieve the impossible is exhausting and can lead to despair or abandonment of vegan lifestyle.

Like a Crusade, extermination and the smallest remnants of animal products from our life is meaningless, because in modern society it is simply not feasible. Parts of animal bodies, waste or by-products exist in virtually all things. If the attention
of vegans is focused on the removal of the smallest animal components from all public and private affairs, it will leave them neither the time nor the strength to focus on education and other activities that could be much more productive.

If it is not possible to completely cleanse our lives from animal products, whether it makes sense, then clean it only partially? Does veganism even make sense?

Vegans are the pioneers in realizing the revolutionary view of life, views that the world is still not ready to accept. In all successful social movements, progressive ideas are always met with resistance. Denial and opposition is expected, maybe even invoke, because they are necessary preconditions for a change. Success can not always measure the achievement of the ultimate goal, really experience very few activists achieve their goals. Formulate concepts and strategies are launching the genesis of cultural change and an indispensable part of starting a permanent transformation, although the rewards, at least on the surface, sometimes seem insignificant.
