Armchair politics, ethical soapbox and current affairs. Place to discuss vegan ethics and general ethics and politics. Be nice.
[quote="rattus"][quote="JP"][quote="etherspin"]My question would be "which would you object to more, me running my lawn mover over 50 square metres of lawn or 50 square metres of kittens ?"
hole in one
And if the answer is "I couldn't care less"?
I'd be stoked to have a different answer to the question for once and would instantly give them a fatal blow to the brain for being a dangerous sociopath
I'd doubt their sincerity though,really.
Would such a person thieve and rape their brains out (being careful with an eye to self preservation I suppose).
My original question is a bit of a joke but is also to cut the BS and get down to the nitty gritty - so many people I have spoken to about ethics (who were anti vegan) try to out talk me or talk round in circles and when a point is validly addressed they will quickly change their example or hypothetical rather than concede a point. Another tactic is to make veganism seems overly complicated,esoteric,symbolic or ineffectual - all reasons I like the kitten/lawn grass dilemma !
