”However much Anti-Vegans try to discredit, mock, and trivialize veganism, their criticisms remain unreasonable and cannot touch the Truth of what this lifestyle is all about: compassion. But they will continue to try, and in doing so reveal their own fears and exaggerations rather than some inherent flaw they’re hoping to uncover in a philosophy that at its core seeks not perfection but intention.
In fact, vegans (and everyone sympathetic to veganism) can take heart that we’re right on track. Those speaking against veganism are doing exactly what’s expected of them, especially when you consider what a wise person once observed about how some people react to justice and progress:
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” - Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
This is pretty much the best thing I’ve ever read. I love it all.
