In the inferno – thoughts about selective empathy

There's an Elephant in the Room blog

As Australia burns, the media shows harrowing scenes of indigenous species like koalas and kangaroos, injured, burned and dying. We see so many human interest stories, individual koala mothers with infants clutching at their fur being rescued and cared for; we are invited to feel the personal tragedy of a single kangaroo joey tangled in the fence where he was incinerated.  Whether mourned or rescued, they are viewed as individuals, and we are united in hope for their survival, watching with bated breath as we are shown desperate creatures under an orange sky, fleeing through the smoke with the inferno roaring at their heels. The estimated number of 500,000,000 (half a BILLION) deaths has remained static for well over a week and has no doubt been wildly exceeded by now* – possibly by several orders of magnitude – and will continue to climb.

I see occasional comments that wonder why…

… “doubt” as in being skeptical of people and the world, and possibly of themselves. To me, “full of confidence” means unwarranted or ridiculous overconfidence, like the cardiac patient, bacon-cheeseburger lover boasting about being “top of the food chain, supreme over all the inferior creatures.” Truly deserved confidence is another matter, and is usually a far more humble thing. ~ Laura

10 Videos on Why They’re STILL Vegan and Probably Will Be Forever

Like I always thought, the more some beneficial change becomes trendy (rebellious and “everybody’s doing it”), the more trend slaves hop onboard, and then when they flake out (as trend slaves usually do), look out, they go on the attack against what they failed at and spread all sorts of destructive misinformation, as in the “I’m no longer vegan” nonsense so popular today. Some are outright liars from the start, never were vegan, planned from the beginning to come out scathingly against veganism after a while, all in the interest of the industries.

Human corruption on parade, so commonplace these days. Ho hum.

So, in response to all that, and in random order, below are 10 smart, healthy, loyal vegans who prove the lie of the anti-vegan ex-“vegan” trend of late, about 1-1/4 hours of video in total.

I’m with them all on this issue alone, having no idea how they are politically or on other issues and may disagree with them strongly on some things; but on this, “why stay vegan,” I’m with them 100%.

So take your pick or watch them all, they’re all pretty great.

My favorite? All of ’em…
