I have never chosen vegan because I can not understand how it is more ethical to shred one sacred being over another and call myself ethical. Many vegan spiritualist will happily commune with nature and connect to an ancient tree but then go eat a plant. All beings are sacred. Just because we find it easier to relate to those that are animal with blood and vocal chords does not mean that we are not causing pain and distress to other forms of beings.
Practice your compassion to all beings and honour the sacred relationship we are all involved with not the just our relationship with animals

Of course, not all technological change has been hostile to lesser ranked performers. Computerized typesetting, for instance, has enabled publishers to bring niche books to market with smaller print runs. But even here, the growing importance of mass communications and national bestseller lists has steadily boosted the share of total book sales accounted for by a small handful of celebrity authors. In market after market, these and other similar changes in market structure have sharply increased the value of the top performers relative to their lesser ranked rivals.
