Abolitionist Approach Blog

10 entries in the feed.


Gary Francione discusses and explores various aspects of the idea that we ought to abolish, and not merely regulate, animal exploitation. His blog promotes ethical veganism and creative, non-violent vegan education as the primary forms of activism to move toward the abolition of animal use.

  • Vegan Elitism: Ronnie Lee on “Ordinary People”
    A very typical message we get from many “animal advocates” is that we can’t say that veganism is a moral baseline. That is, we can’t say that veganism is a moral obligation and a moral imperative. We can only promote reducing suffering. People just won’t understand it or be able to process the vegan position.

  • After 30+ Years, Morrissey Goes Vegan But Calls Veganism “Purist”
    Morrissey has finally recognized–after three decades of collecting royalties from Meat is Murder–that all animal products are murder. Morrissey made this announcement on the Larry King Show. And he made very sure to reinforce the idea that being vegan is anything but a moral imperative. Indeed, his denigration of veganism sounded like the (...more)

  • Vegan Advocacy is the Only Solution
    The rich, bloated new welfarist charities tell us we have to promote welfarist “baby steps”–such as cage-free eggs and crate-free pork, and the Whole Foods Animal Welfare Rating system–in order to move things forward. All of these groups reject veganism as a moral baseline. Think about the perversity of their position: they are (...more)

  • Sea Shepherd Weighs In on Cecil the Lion: Insisting on Veganism is “Purism” and “Elitist”
    Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd has weighed in on the controversy over Cecil the lion. Watson takes aim at those of us who make the point that there is absolutely no morally significant difference between killing animals for sporting pleasure and killing animals for palate pleasure, and that our objecting to the killing of […] The post Sea Shepherd (...more)

  • Adventures in Moral Schizophrenia: Cecil the Lion
    If you are upset about the killing of Cecil the Lion and you are not a vegan, then you are suffering from moral schizophrenia. There is no difference between “Cecil” and all of the animals you eat who do not have names but who value their lives as much as the lion valued his. So […] The post Adventures in Moral Schizophrenia: Cecil (...more)

  • Once Again, The U.K. “Vegan” Society Trashes Veganism
    You will recall last year that The Vegan Society’s “Ambassador,” marathon runner Fiona Oakes, appeared on BBC and ran away from veganism just as quickly as she could, stating that veganism isn’t “for everyone, I'm saying that it's not probably for very many people.” At their June 27 meeting, The Vegan Society (...more)

  • Welfare Reform Campaigns, Single-Issue Campaigns, and Animal Exploitation: Perfect Together
    Welfare reform campaigns and single-issue campaigns (SICs) necessarily promote animal exploitation. In order to see this clearly and easily, consider that the entire point of these campaigns is to build coalitions that involve animal exploiters. And the only way that can be done is by promoting animal exploitation. Welfare Reform Campaigns These campaigns (...more)

  • A “Movement” of Relentless Narcissism
    The “animal movement” attracts many people who are emotionally sensitive. Indeed, it is this very emotional sensitivity that provides the moral impulse for many people to care about the animal issue in the first place. Unfortunately, there is a machine represented by the large groups that preys on those emotions. So those concerned about (...more)
