I’m always struck by the accusation that vegans have an agenda. It’s remarkable to me that our minds have become so jaded by advertising and marketing that we trust McDonald’s or the National Cattleman’s Beef Association or the Pork Producers – those who have THE MOST TO GAIN, the most money to make off of the backs of animals and off of our ignorance. But when a vegan talks about the joys and benefits of a plant-based diet – we’re accused of “having an agenda.”
It’s true. I confess. I have an agenda. It’s called compassion.
