VegInspiration. Love Animals ~~ Dr. Will Tuttle


“Love animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled. Do not trouble their joy, don’t harass them, don’t deprive them of their happiness, don’t work against God’s intent.” – Fyodor

What the eff is a veg*n? Adults spell out their political views and so can animal advocates

What the eff is a veg*n? Adults spell out their political views and so can animal advocates





I still remember, not so fondly, the first time I ever heard the word 'veg*n' pronounced out loud by someone. It was years ago, and only now has the trauma subsided sufficiently that I can blog about it. I was on

a noisy, but relaxed, patio of… Continue

On Violence

On Violence



Dear Colleagues:



Unfortunately, there are people who identify themselves as animal advocates who claim that the solution to the problem of animal exploitation is violence.

Some of these people have actually engaged in acts of violence against institutional exploiters. Others incite acts of violence by calling on people to use “intimidation” against animal exploiters…

Here in this house ...



Here in this house... I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks

of the other dogs 'out there'. I can sleep soundly, assured that when I

wake my world will not have changed. I will never know hunger, or the fear of

not knowing if I'll eat. I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from

the heat. I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness, and be

allowed to smell all that can reach my nose. My fur…

The Traveler and His Dog

The Traveler and His Dog

(from Aesop's fables)





A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead...



He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.



After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along… Continue

Will Tuttle: VegInspiration. Our Old Herding Culture



We may become irate that someone would even suggest that our mother’s loving meals and our father’s barbecues were a form of indoctrination. Our mother and father didn’t intend to indoctrinate us, just as their

parents didn’t intend to indoctrinate them. Nevertheless, our old

herding culture, primarily through the family and secondarily through

religious, educational,…

Effective Advocacy: Stealing from the Corporate Playbook by Bruce Friedrich, director of Vegan Campaigns

Effective Advocacy: Stealing from the Corporate Playbook

by Bruce Friedrich, director of Vegan Campaigns







I've been involved in social justice advocacy for more than 20 years. I spent six of those years running a homeless shelter and soup kitchen in Washington, D.C., before coming to work for PETA. If you are reading this, then you, too, must be concerned about making the world a better place.



Over the years, I've found that those of us who are concerned… Continue

Will Tuttle: VegInspiration. Field of Freedom





By recognizing and understanding the violence inherent in our culture’s meal rituals and consciously adopting a plant-based diet, becoming a voice for those who have no voice, we can attain greater compassion and

happiness and live more fully the truth of our interconnectedness with

all life. In this we fulfill the universal teachings…

Humane Meat - A Contradiction in Terms - Bruce Friedrich

Humane Meat: A Contradiction in Terms

People have become increasingly aware that virtually all of the 10 billion

land animals slaughtered in the U.S. each year for their meat, eggs and

Is Every Campaign a Single-Issue Campaign?

Is Every Campaign a Single-Issue Campaign?

Posted by Gary L. Francione in Blog



Dear Colleagues:



In response to my comments (1,2) about the Johnny Weir matter and to my general comment on single-issue campaigns, some have suggested that if the Johnny Weir matter is a single-issue campaign, then all campaigns, including efforts to promote adoption/rescue, sanctuaries, and even veganism are single issue-campaigns.



This suggestion reveals a profound lack of… Continue
