Free From Harm

30 posts in the feed.

Free From Harm is a great resource for anyone curious about or already committed to animal rights. They write on lesser known news items, humane education, animal rights, and bring attention to the myths of "humane meat.

  • Breaking the Food Chain Myth
    Claiming to be at the top of the food chain is a popular justification for eating animal products and an affirmation of our ability to violently dominate everyone. Yet justifications for violence that draw on notions of power and supremacy are based on the philosophy that “Might makes right” — the principle behind the worst atrocities and crimes of (...more)

  • You Can't Be 100% Vegan
    When human slavery was the norm, one could have made a similar argument. Unless we were living outside of society, it would have been difficult to be 100% slave-free. Sure, we could have avoided owning slaves ourselves, but it would have been impossible to avoid all items that contained even a small degree of slave input. Continue reading → (...more)

  • Milk of the Poisonous Tree: Reconnecting with Our Food Choices
    There are many familiar claims through which we seek to deny personal responsibility for our food choices despite the fact that eating animal products means we pay someone else to dominate, exploit and violently kill healthy, infant or adolescent animals who want to live. Following are a few common examples: "You can still eat animals and love them;" (...more)

  • Examining the Claim, Our Brains Evolved from Eating Animals
    It could be argued that our brains have also evolved to become addicted to smoking, gambling, video games, alcohol, drugs, sex, violence, and harmful fast food. But we would think it insane to try to justify any of these behaviors based on some pseudo-scientific claim about the biological development of our brains. Continue reading → (...more)

  • A Vegan Abolitionist Discussion in Australia
    By Stevie Lynne Not Safe for Work: Contains some good natured cursing. Do we need people like Rupert Murdoch on our side? White men say, "Yes!"

  • On the Problems with Open Rescues: A Response to the DXE Position
    Yes, images can elicit emotions which can, in turn, inspire action. No, they need not be graphic, and graphic images can backfire within a political environment that normalizes welfare reform as the appropriate response to animal exploitation. Image courtesy of The Abolitionist Vegan Society. Following the new Direct Action Everywhere (DXE) campaign (...more)

  • An Update on Non-Profit Bias and the "Downright Stupid" Vegan Position
    Last week I published a brief critique of the Humane Research Council's new study on vegan recidivism, which I suggested was conducted to legitimate compromised welfarist tactics. I argued this because 1. there is considerable preexisting research on this very topic that comes to much different conclusions and is conducted by academics who are (...more)

  • Is Veganism Elitist? No. But Nonveganism Is!
    A purported objection to veganism I’ve heard about 12 million times: “But veganism is elitist.” What complete nonsense. Elitism involves promoting a perceived superiority of some sort. It involves the idea of according less moral value to the “inferior.” As 2 seconds of thinking make clear, veganism is not elitist in (...more)

Now I write about The Vegan Society joining a campaign being led by a group that promotes vivisection. Here is a page from The Vegan […] The (...more)
