...was more of an affectionate side-swipe.

that's frequently the best kind of affection.

Great episode. Especially excellent and much appreciated editorial, chisel. Keep up the great work!

I agree with 20.42 and I asking if Chisel would be willing to expand on this editorial either via podcast or/and article? I wanted to hear more. I would suggest something audio and something written; written so folks can respond. How about it Chisel? As a vegan, I hope other vegans will listen to this and seriously consider this editorial as a positive. Regarding the moralism, I would say moralism plays a key in many decisions people make. For example, something done may be legal, but we condemn that something morally. Many 'believe' morality doesn't exist. However, it does. It may a human construct, nonetheless it exists. Maybe people chose to use a different word which amounts to something similar. The ideological...hmmm...most of us get caught out here, not just vegans. As a vegan, I would eat nonhuman products if my circumstances were such as needs must.

could happen. probably not though. gotta write as i feel inspired. you know how that is.
also, thanks for kind words. :)

what does existence even mean to you anyways, vegan?
like, is the every twittering wall-scratch really so important as to command the mind?
for me, morals are imaginary or abstracted(retracted?) from existence(i.e non-existent). they are artificially imposed walls; playing God to proclaim cellular division and enclosure, promoting a static stance -sold as natural rights- to enforce the fascistic process of domestic-civilisation by which every-one(and thing) can judge-and-be-judged as a god.
whereas; there seemingly need-ought-be onely our Ego-exstatic, free-flowing, relationally evolving, espiritual ethic(s).
i don't see how a categorical (vegan) identity could help guide me or humanity unto the holistic integrity we so fancy, no!
the-way-for-me-rather, is but absolute submission to the ever-abundant no-thing-ness wherein we, terra-vita-animalia are often eating one-another,
alas, to the apparent distaste among collaborators of a more distinctly-civilian and institutional society .

To 9.33: Calm down. Calm down. No one is forcing you or even asking you to go vegan. And remember, don't talk to strangers my little rebel cherub! Weird hom some folk (teenies?) get themselves all worked up when morality is mentioned.

so i be like a child -thank you- and i'm intrigued if not inspired by your humane intention to harmonic health. i wholly respect your ethic and admire the discipline to discern your behavior so effectively. my pithy concern is merely the conflation of any moral ism with our shared, beautiful idea. religion is about connection. eat what you will! thanks for sharing!
