Matt Ball: There’s No Magical Vegan Argument

Vegan Outreach’s Matt Ball just updated his “Animals, Not Arguments” article. It’s got important thoughts for everyone trying to maximize their efforts to create a vegan world. Ball concludes the piece with three take-home messages:

  1. At this time, there simply is no magic argument that will convince everyone – or even a majority – to go vegan.
  2. The health argument, as it is actually interpreted and acted on in the real world by non-vegetarians, has killed many many more animals than it spared.
  3. Every additional argument we present to meat-eaters gives them more distance between themselves and their real and immediate connection to the brutality on factory farms.

His entire article is well worth a read and some careful thinking. Link.
