I went vegan just over 2 years ago. After that initial, combined feeling of overwhelming sadness, shame and anger, I actually felt quite hopeful. I mean, obviously, even before going vegan, I already knew this world was shit, but most problems I was aware of just seemed incredibly difficult to deal with. What exactly is the solution to, say, the situation in the Middle East? Massive problems like that are a result of so many complex, varied causes, you know? Then, I went vegan, and I realized that there was a much bigger problem in this world which, paradoxically, had a really simple solution. That problem was the animal holocaust, and the solution was veganism. Things just clicked for me so quickly. I was obviously opposed to injustice and oppression, so how could I inflict senseless violence upon other animals, especially for the sake of something as trivial as my palate pleasure? Consuming animal products was so obviously unethical, and I was sure that, when challenged and given the opportunity to change, most people would see that. The fact that the first people I spoke to about the subject (my family) all went vegan straight away only reinforced my optimism. But that changed pretty soon. Back then, I was an active member of the Green Party,  here in New Zealand, and I was sure that the most "progressive" people in the country would be receptive to the simple message of veganism. I was wrong. I left the Party shortly after going vegan (fuck you, @nzgreenparty), and since then, I've been constantly amazed at people's attempts to justify something that is so obviously wrong. I mean, nonvegans, do you really think your pleasure can justify slavery, torture and slaughter? If we didn't have certain laws and social conventions in place, what else would you be willing to do? If you were allowed to own another human, would you? If rape wasn't illegal, would you just skip consensual sex? I still have some hope. I know that whatever small chance we have of creating a vegan world depends on vegans speaking out. If you're vegan, please, never stop fighting for the animals in any way you can. And if you're not vegan, LEAVE THE ANIMALS ALONE AND GO VEGAN.
