    white vegans be like “honey is unethical because the bees worked so hard on it that’s why I like the completely ethical alternative of sugar harvested by underpaid and abused fieldworkers”

    a question to all the people reblogging this: do you actually give a fuck about these fieldworkers all other 364 days of the year or just when you can use them to argue against vegans lmao

    lol, of course not. people looooove to use vegans/vegetarians as a scapegoat because it makes them feel better about their own indifference and inaction in re: our global industrial agriculture system. 

    don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely a legit critique that can be made about how “ethical consumerism” is a bourgeois affectation that doesn’t really change anything, but that’s a broader issue within liberalism and not a uniquely vegan problem— besides, most of the vegans i know are pretty radical in their politics and much more aware of these of sorts issues than the general populace.

    this post just seems like some first-rate concern trolling.

  6. Tying up your assets, your middle-class future, in home values does something to people. It alters their interests. It sutures a professional class, of liberal and even progressive beliefs, to the rapacious capitalist expansion into the city. The people who move to gentrifying areas tend to have liberal, tolerant, cosmopolitan sympathies. But they are aligned materially with reactionary and oppressive city restructuring, pushing them into antagonism with established residents, who do nothing for property values. Behind every Jane Jacobs comes Rudy Giuliani with his nightstick.

    You ever start eating an apple, get halfway through, and you’re kinda over eating apple but there’s so much apple left and you feel obliged to keep slogging through?

    If you are able to register to vote but choose not to because of some misguided notion that activism is a zero-sum game and voting precludes any other sort of political action, I don’t have time to deal with you.

    Call me what you will, but I agree with Malcolm X on this issue: action on all fronts, by whatever means necessary. The power of the ballot, when used thoughtfully and collectively, can be as effective as a bullet. Throwing that away because it doesn’t fit your revolutionary aesthetic is ignorant and immature.
