Master List Of Vegan Info


Extremely comprehensive and admirably compiled resource / info listings here:

The Legacy Of Pythagoras

Disclaimer: My only goal with this list is to produce as comprehensive a resource for Vegan information as possible. I am 100% Abolitionist Vegan and 100% against exploitation of nonhuman and human animals, violence against humans, Welfarism and anything else that makes it seem like violence or exploitation of animals is ok. If any of those positions are endorsed on any site in this list, or any language is used to imply that, it’s not that I included that link because I agree, but simply because I don’t control every bit of information on all these sites.

Note: This list now has a permanent home (as permanent as anything online, anyway) here:

It’s the only location I’ll be updating regularly. Please use that link if you want the latest additions to the list.

Also, here’s a survey on Veganism you can take:

Here are a couple surveys I…

On Morality: Why Violence Will Never Advance The Animal Rights Movement (or any movement)


as a pacifist I liked reading this 🙂

The Legacy Of Pythagoras


Violence can never advance the true Animal Rights movement (Abolitionist Veganism) because it does not solve problems, either in an abstract respect nor from a practical one.

Here, in my opinion, are the reasons why:

1. Violence is immoral – True Veganism is a movement that is fundamentally about non-violence, it’s not only against violence by humans towards nonhumans, but also against humans towards other humans. If violence by humans against nonhumans is immoral, then violence by humans against other humans is also immoral, using the same criteria. Also, raping women who wear fur or killing vivisectors and factory farm workers is not Self-Defense nor is it Defense Of Others. Self-Defense/Defense Of Others occurs when the person committing the original violence understands why their violence is wrong. Since  the people killing the factory farm workers or vivisectors etc. will not take the time to educate them all about Veganism, this rule does…

The stresses upon you have been increasing enormously.


I needed to hear this reminder that I am One with the Love the illusory world requires to perfect the overthrow of fear, separation, distrust and anguish. Having long gone beyond the place of denial, having so long burdened myself with the sufferings and sorrows, and the subsequent guilt of transcending these slimy deceptors…………..just to BE the presence of Love, the holder of Light, and the bridge of Truth, even if merely during meditation IS being the change, making manifest the Vegantopia which already exists within my defenceless heart.

Johnsmallman's Blog

This is a very difficult and stressful time for you all, especially as you pay compassionate and concerned attention to the vast amount of suffering and deprivation that is being endured by so many all over the world. The tsunami of Love is flowing powerfully and intensely through your illusory dream-scape. It is very effective and it is stirring up all your unaddressed issues which have been lying like mud or sand at the bottom of the pond that is your unconscious, the vast hidden area of your mind where all that you could not bear to face has lain hidden for eons. All that “muck” has to be released and cleared away so that the Light that each one of you carries with you constantly can shine forth brightly as divinely intended. As It does so you will become increasingly aware of the divine Light shining forth from others…

Burmese Chickpea Tofu – Two Ways


Vibrantly Vegan

IMG_4069 Wow!!  Just wow!!  This recipe will be changing so much in my kitchen!  I would never have imagined that I’d be making my own tofu, but chickpea tofu is incredibly easy to make, incredibly healthy, and truly and incredibly delicious!  My whole family loves tofu and while I do not give any validity to the rumor mill regarding the alleged health risks of soy (please click here for information about the soy myth), I do believe in everything in moderation.  So when I came across this recipe, I couldn’t wait to try it, and it exceeded all of my expectations!

The basic recipe is all over the internet so I can’t tell where it originated.  Therefore, sadly, I can’t give proper credit.  I will say, however, that I am very grateful to whomever created this dish!

Most recipes online say that chickpea tofu is not good stir-fried or sautéed like soy tofu, but I…
