That picture is from the early 00's.
Here's a recent one, but I agree. By being more than fifty years old, he really doesn't look like it.

People need to learn that abstaining from eating meat doesn't make you a better person than the ones who keep eating it.

In the same way that not eating wouldn't make you better than people that keep doing it

People need to learn that not everyone thinks like that you based faggot Ill sue ya after I get out of this drive thru in Amish paradise, Albuquerque

You mean in the same way as not murdering people doesnt makes me better than murderers?
User avatar #6 to #3 - exceeding (08/11/2014) [-]
Well i wouldn't shout "Ha i'm better than you, because i don't murder people and you do!"
It sounds very unhealthy
#12 to #3 - bigmanblue (08/11/2014) [-]
the difference is that eating meat isnt bad
while murdering is bad
User avatar #74 to #12 - ianchrist (08/12/2014) [-]
eatting meat is bad to vegetarians. Thats the point.

User avatar #5 to #3 - fezzo (08/11/2014) [-]
It does require some nuance but in general you shouldn't walk around with an air of "I'm better than the average person because I'm doing this"
User avatar #102 to #5 - KazumaKyu ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
Unless 'this' happens to be 'running around vigilante-style and fighting crime with my awesome superpowers.

Cause yeah, that would make you better than the rest of us.
User avatar #34 to #2 - IAmManbearpig (08/11/2014) [-]
some people just don't like meat and feel better when they don't eat it, and I can respect that.
but as always, there are the preachy "stop liking what i dont like" extremist faggots, and they're pieces of **** .

Kind of depends on how you see it. I don't necessarily think that vegans or non-vegans are good people, but that has a lot to do with what it takes to give us the lives we lead. There's no denying that we live in excess, at other people's expense, always. The systematic, continuous enslavement and slaughtering of animals is probably among the worst thing humanity has ever done and it's something we keep on doing every day. That doesn't mean that vegans are better people, however, because many of their products exist thanks to human beings working under worse conditions than they do.

It's just a massive cycle of suffering and privilege. That's why I don't really believe that anyone who lives the way we do can call themselves a good person no matter how much money they give to charity or how many times they've volunteered at soup kitchens. You don't become a good person by paying attention to one instance of suffering while ignoring a thousand other instances of it. I'm not a good person, you're not a good person, none of us are. Better to realise that sooner rather than later, because we are all in it for ourselves.

That's just how I see it, anyway.

Not eating meat makes you more altruistic, if you think that being altruistic is being a better person than yes it makes you a better person.
#138 to #2 - anon (08/12/2014) [-]
It's not about how they die, it's about how they live.

Factory Farming is **** , and most meat comes that way.

We're not even the ones killing the meat we eat most of the time, so what moral argument is there between a vegan and the average shopper?
User avatar #29 to #18 - ZenMacros (08/11/2014) [-]
The idea is that by buying the meat you're directly supporting the killing of the animals.
User avatar #44 to #18 - theluppijackal (08/11/2014) [-]
'we're not even the ones killing most of the time, so what moral argument is there between a regular person and someone who buys an assassin?'
Not how law works son. When someone buys a hitman, both parties are equally guilty.
User avatar #94 to #44 - KazumaKyu ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
I'm sorry, what country equates its treatment of livestock with its treatment of humans? Animal cruelty is one thing, but if I go out and put a bullet in a cow they're going to treat me very differently than if I did the same to a human.
User avatar #95 to #94 - theluppijackal (08/12/2014) [-]
That wasn't the point I was trying to make. I was pointing out the flaws in his reasoning.
User avatar #96 to #95 - KazumaKyu ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
I got what you were trying to say, but when compared with his statement yours was actually more flawed since it relied on a perception of equality between two things that are not equal.
User avatar #97 to #96 - theluppijackal (08/12/2014) [-]
They are equal. He's saying he's free of guilt because HE'S not preforming the action. But, if you pay someone else to do an immoral action/illegal action, under the guise of the law, you are equally guilty.
User avatar #98 to #97 - KazumaKyu ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
In the eyes of the law, yes, but the law is not involved here... no-one but you mentioned lawful practice. You seem to be equating 'moral' with 'lawful', which is simply not true. We try to base our laws around what we consider to be moral ideas, but they are not the same thing.

Rest assured I am not agreeing with the anon's statement, he is very clearly wrong in his logic, I am merely unhappy with the wording of your rebuttals.
User avatar #99 to #98 - theluppijackal (08/12/2014) [-]
I'm not equating moral with law. I'm merely pointing out facts. If you pay someone to run a dog fighting ring [a la michael vick] you are just as guilty as the person that ran the dog fighting ring.

The concept of analogies escapes you
User avatar #135 to #134 - KazumaKyu ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
I understand analogies perfectly well, thank you. My point was merely that there must be some kind of commonality between scenario 1 and scenario 2 if you want to use scenario 2 as an analogy for scenario 1. Simple concept.

I realized my error in judgement in this conversation with the luppijackal, and thus ceased to refute him. Thank you ever so much for chiming in four hours after the conversation's conclusion, only to add nothing whatsoever.
User avatar #137 to #135 - deathstare (08/12/2014) [-]
You're welcome. I had read through this thread and deemed it necessary to tell you you were grabbing at air trying to argue. Also, the internet is timeless
#78 to #18 - blancka (08/12/2014) [-]
Supply and demand. More vegans = less demand for meat. Less demand for meat = less meat produced because demand is lower. Less meat needed to meet demand = fewer killed animals.

i think he's just vegetarian
User avatar #45 to #38 - theluppijackal (08/11/2014) [-]
He's a flexible vegan it seems
full time vegetarian but occasionally has a cheese pizza.
I respect him for being honest about it
User avatar #86 to #45 - mads (08/12/2014) [-]
If he's a 'flexible vegan' then he isn't a vegan. He's just a vegetarian. Vegan means you don't eat anything that comes from an animal.
#53 to #45 - sickboi (08/12/2014) [-]
vegetarians can eat cheese pizza, that's vegans you're thinking of
User avatar #54 to #53 - theluppijackal (08/12/2014) [-]
Yeah...that's what I said
flexible vegan
#56 to #54 - sickboi (08/12/2014) [-]
so he's just a vegetarian then?
User avatar #57 to #56 - theluppijackal (08/12/2014) [-]
I guess
he said he avoids dairy and eggs whenever possible but he sneaks pizza once in a while
User avatar #61 to #57 - fitemeirlbro ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
no one can live with out pizza
User avatar #62 to #61 - theluppijackal (08/12/2014) [-]

then again there's vegan cheese so

Internet is not a good place to discuss that sort of thing anyway
All that happens is both sides get angry and thinking they're right
