NPR Writes About Extremism in Veganism Movement

Animal-welfare activists note that getting people involved with veganism is more important than adhering to strict consumption standards.

In a recent article published on NPR’s website, the news outlet shined a light on one aspect of veganism that may turn people off: its potential for extremity. Animal activists such as Matt Ball of Vegan Outreach and Bruce Friedrich of Farm Sanctuary who are the authors of Animal Activists’ Handbook, put these worries to rest in the NPR article and note that fanatic zealotry is detrimental to the vegan movement because it drives others away. They also assert that vegans should concentrate more on getting people involved rather than being nitpicky about what they consume. “The point isn’t to suffer or die to be vegan—the point is to lead a meaningful life that reduces as much suffering as possible,” says Ball as quoted by NPR.
