Direct Action Everywhere (DxE): Welfarist or Abolitionist?

Friends, I thought it important to address this issue since there’s a number of problems with this particular advocacy group Direct Action Everywhere’s strategy and theory, in particular the most welfarist indicator of them all — their decision not to mention veganism –  the very action needed to end the property status of animals.

VT Podcast Ep 8: Veganism and All Forms of Life

Chris Hedges

A reading of Pulitzer Prize recipient Chris Hedges’ essay ( posted Jan 4, 2015 )   “All Forms of Life Are Sacred“. His essay discusses veganism and the moral imperative.  Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer prize recipient and his bio can be found here.  He is also a regular contributor to Truthdig.com and his essays are posted each Monday.

Normally I discuss various issues in my episodes, but I decided there would be some value in reading this essay.  Next time I will return to discussing issues as usual.  I hope you enjoyed today’s episode 🙂
