This is a continuation/conclusion to my previous post: Day 99: Vegans Are Sweet, But Still Murderers
Wow, so I've already received quite a lot of views on my last post, and most of the feedback and comments pretty much just help make the point.
Maybe I was unclear, or I didn't write enough - didn't go deep enough - that the whole point of my post just whizzed over people's heads. Or maybe it's the people - I'm just saying...
I stand by my conclusion that all vegans are self righteous hippie folk. Not most, ALL. The only reason someone would abstain from eating meat, aside from it causing negative physical reactions, is that one has an idea about eating animals. Now I'm not saying that the need to eat food is a very nice, or even practical way to survive and I fully commit to redesigning all of life so that no one being needs another to feed off of - but while our bodies need sustenance, we must eat.
So if one has an idea about eating meat, be it based on some scientific study (shame on you for believing it right-off), or on harming other beings then basically what's going on is that this person is living according to a belief system. So I could equate vegans to Christians - believing that they are good and right and will be rewarded in the afterlife.
Now, I'm also NOT saying that our food industry is OK - it is far from OK - but it is based on our human system of profit which has no scruples when it comes to fucking others over to make a quick buck. What I am saying is that the idea that one is doing less harm by being a vegan is actually opposite of the truth. Believing that one is causing less harm in this fucked up world by not eating meat indicates that one does not understand the system or oneself at all but is simply another pawn to be moved by the even hungry profit machine.
Do you really think that you choosing to not eat meat is going to stop a system based on abuse? Because that's the only valid reason for someone claiming to want what is best for all to act. Do you think that less animals will be bred and butchered because you abstain from eating meat?
The thing is, all the responses I have received from vegans saying "yes, I agree but I still am doing this for the animals" are complete bullshit. You are making no difference to the lives of the billions of animals suffering in this world. How can you then claim to be a vegan for the animals? The animals are still living in cages, being fed food that would kill them if they lived longer than they did anyway and wishing for an end every moment of their lives. So stop being an asshole and do something that will make a difference!
If every vegan were to give as much attention to a global solution as they do to their diet, maybe global awareness of the realities of the food industry would be higher. Maybe more people would be educating themselves about how the system really works. Maybe there would be more people demanding a global system that honours all life and abolishes profit and loss once and for all.
I forgive myself for not realizing that veganism is not a global solution to poverty, suffering and abuse as it does not take into consideration how the system functions according to profit and loss, nor does it offer respite to the inequalities of living standards.
I forgive myself for not realizing that veganism is not a part of a global solution to poverty, suffering and abuse as it is based on an idea that one is preventing suffering when in fact one is not making any difference and therefore indicates to us that the idea of veganism is purely self interest.
I forgive myself for not realizing that the studies and reports that are published regarding food are not trustworthy as all of the researches in the world are slaves to money and do not even understand how the physical body actually functions and therefore have no authority or ability to claim one thing or another until our understanding of the physical is complete and we are no longer slaves to the Money God.
I forgive myself for not realizing that blindly believing research by apparent "experts" without actually testing the claims for myself simply makes me a fool and a sheep, not "clever" for "listening to the experts".
I forgive myself for not realizing that by believing that I am making a difference when I do not see any actual difference I am actually caught in a game of "The Bestest Me I Can Be" in which I use my thoughts to justify why I am a good person.
I forgive myself for not realizing that if I have not made a real effort to communicate with plants then I can not claim to know who they are and what they experience as I am simply claiming to be an expert based on my "superior" human intellect and cognitive abilities as proven by scientists working in a lab, who are actually only people doing a job in order to survive.
I forgive myself for not realizing that any time I think or say something to convince myself or someone else that I am right that I am then justifying myself in order to feel good about myself.
I forgive myself for not realizing that my words indicate that I do not actually know how this system works as I am basing my words on my own assumptions and beliefs and not on what I have proven to be true.
I forgive myself for not realizing that through implementing an global solution such as an Equal Money System in which profit will not be the driving motivation for everything we do, we will be able to alter the way we live so that eating is no longer a requirement and we will be able to live in true harmony with nature as nature will no longer need to consume itself over and over to survive.
I commit myself to showing people that veganism offers no solution to any of the major global problems such as poverty, abuse, needing money to survive, profit and loss.
I commit myself to showing people that veganism is actually self interest as one is perpetuating the idea that one is making a difference when one is actually not.
I commit myself to showing people that we do not actually know anything about our physical bodies, and as long as the people who are the scientists must earn a living then no information they publish is trustworthy.
I commit myself to showing people that as the system we have created is so dishonest, every thing must be tested and confirmed for oneself.
I commit myself to showing people that one must always be able to see a real difference in the world to be able to prove to oneself that one isn't simply trying to feel good about oneself.
I commit myself to show people how to let go of their preconceived ideas based on assumptions that only certain kinds of beings are alive/ can feel pain and learn to actually communicate with plants.
I commit myself to showing people that whenever we do anything within the belief of "I am right" that we are justifying ourselves and being dishonest with ourselves.
I commit myself to show people how to see where their words are showing them what they do not yet fully understand.
I commit myself to show people that by implementing an Equal Money System we will be able to focus on developing ourselves and technology to actually support all life.
