"Gentle World's core purpose is to help build a more peaceful society, by educating the public about the reasons for being vegan, the benefits of vegan living, and how to go about making such a transition. Toward that end, Gentle World has served as a clearing house of information for the past 30 years, helping children, teens and adults embrace a lifestyle that incorporates their values."

  • I am Valiant
    I am Valiant. I was given that name to give me self-esteem and courage. I was always scared back then, and my friends wanted me to think of myself as someone I could be proud of. They wanted to give me confidence. And so, they named me Valiant. I wasn’t always so lucky. Before this, […] (...more)

  • Spring
    by Mimi Yoshiyama … In December of 2015, on a very sunny spring day, I arrived at this hidden valley in the far north of New Zealand. My first week in Gentle World passed by so quickly, as I helped with weeding, cooking, cleaning, renovating a caravan, and preparing amazing, soulful veganic dinners every night. After my first […] (...more)

  • What Kind of God?
    Gentle World’s Hawaii center is situated in an area where suburban living meets the farm. Along the street where we walk for our evening sunset, we pass goats, hens, roosters, horses, and even cows. These animals may seem happy enough, as their lives are far from the horrors of industrialized production. But, just like their […] (...more)

  • If We Were They
    Of the more than seven billion people who are alive on this earth as I write, not one, as far as any of us knows, asked to be born. To the best of our recollection, each of us arrived in this crazy world not by our own choice, but either by someone else’s choosing or by chance. None […] (...more)

  • On Chips and Microchips
    This past year, 2015, may go down as the year we admitted that our relationship with digital media was getting a little dysfunctional.

  • Defending Henry
      In a recent New Yorker piece (“Pond Scum,” October 19), Kathryn Schulz takes a twenty-first-century hammer to a nineteenth-century nail, pounding Henry David Thoreau into submission. In addition to Thoreau’s supposed arrogance, self-righteousness, narcissism, parochialism, isolationism, and apparent embrace of every “ism” against (...more)

  • Putting An End To “Anti-Science”
      Now that the Food and Drug Administration has approved genetically modified salmon for human consumption, a timeworn debate over the safety and effectiveness of genetically modified food has once again resumed. Several lazy tropes drive this discourse—GMOs are “Frankenfood,” GMOs will feed the world, GMOs cause cancer—and none of them (...more)

  • Horse Meat in the Food Chain
      Exotic game meat is a specialty food item that’s becoming increasingly less special—currently it’s a $39 billion a year industry. This might be great news for consumers with a taste for bear, yak, lion, or beaver (you can place an online order with a quick click), but it’s not so great in terms of [...] (...more)

  • The Vegan Society Senior Officer of Advocacy and Policy Rejects Veganism as a Moral Baseline
    In my essay on “intersectionalist vegans,” I carefully documented explicit and overt speciesiesm on the part of a number of figureheads in the intersectionalist movement.

    Many welfarist vegans and intersectional vegans do not seem to understand the ideas behind the idea that “THE WORLD IS VEGAN! If we want it.” It’s really quite simple. There are three central ideas here. First, this expression denotes that veganism is a moral choice and that it is one we can make today—right now—if […] The (...more)

    I. The Problem of Essentialism Racism and sexism represent moral evil. Racism and sexism involve a societal acceptance of essentialism, or the idea that biology or some other personal characteristic alone determines moral value.

  • Why This Vegan Doesn't Watch Nature Programs
    I used to love Nature shows as a kid, but the older I get, the less patience I have for them. I boycott them because of those inevitable scenes of death and suffering--what film-makers sometimes spend months hoping to capture to give some "excitement" to their documentary--are just too traumatizing for me. Some of the most graphic and unsettling (...more)
