Master List Of Vegan Info

Standard

Extremely comprehensive and admirably compiled resource / info listings here:

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:

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…
