The Reasons Behind Fake Vegans!

 

There are two type of vegans; true vegans and fake vegans.  The true vegan is vegan for ethical reasons, to save the animals, they don’t need motivation because saving lives is all the drive they need and they DO save lives.   The fake vegans, or the ‘Fakan’ has other motives, they may talk about the animals, but they are just trying to behave like a true vegan so people ‘buy’ in to their facade.  Their motives are varied and differ, some will have multiple motivations; however,  fame, vanity, money, and the trend follower!

They miss the whole point of veganism and the reason they chose to be vegan was not for ethical reasons, which I believe should be the primary reason, the outstanding health benefits are a bonus.   Once you awaken to the truth of animal abuse, slavery and slaughter, you don’t want to be a part of it, and so strong is the repulsion you feel towards the appalling treatment of animals, you know you can never ever be a part of it again, because when you go to the shop to buy milk or pick up a piece of steak at the supermarket or have a cheeseburger at McDonalds, you are part of the abuse.

My interest in veganism did start for health reasons, as I learned about a whole food plant based diet, but the day I chose veganism was the day I woke up to the reality of animal abuse, torture and murder within the food / drink, beauty, medical and fashion industries.

I call it an awakening because once you are exposed to the truth something clicks in your mind, like a blind person with restored sight you will view everything and I mean everything differently including animals and people.  You will then realise many of the horrors in this world are man-made.  Conflicts, wars, human and animal abuse take up so much time, money and headspace that we are wasting our time living in fear, watching news stories of pointless wars and violence when we could be helping those in real need such as those suffering because of natural occurrences such as earthquakes, droughts, famines, diseases and tsunamis throughout the world.

The media vegans who have fallen off the vegan wagon, were never on the wagon to begin with, look at some of their you tube videos; they follow trends, they try the latest craze like water fasting, they are not about ethics they are about popularity and money.  They are vein, superficial and down right fakes.  Some of these so called ‘vegans’ have been exposed, Rawvana, a popular YouTuber with over 400k followers was caught on camera eating fish, she off course then posted a video explaining why she is no longer vegan.

Numerous others have made videos to explain ‘why I’m no longer vegan’, some give health reasons, but none of the reasons are directly associated with a vegan diet, they just use it as an excuse because they weren’t doing it for the animals, you can’t go from the realisation of animal slavery, torture, abuse and murder, then think its okay, because when you see the truth, only someone either not switched on or wicked would think it was acceptable.

Recommended U.K. Online Petitions for Animals and the Environment!

These are just some of the online petitions I have signed today for the animals and the environment.  Take a minute to have a browse and sign those you agree with.  Hurry though, these will expire at some point!

The U.K. government responds to all petitions that get more than 10,000 signatures.

Parliament considers all petitions that get more than 100,000 signatures for a debate.

Some may think armchair activism is useless, but change often starts with discussions, people need to let government know what they want and this is one way of doing it.

If you don’t live in the U.K. find out if your country has a similar website.

Humanity on the Wrong Path!

I have been struggling lately and overwhelmed as I realise that humanity is on the wrong path, big time!  The things we focus on are distracting us from tackling the real issues in this world; wars, hunger, poverty, animal and human abuse, climate change, disease, etc.

We focus on material wealth, social media, bitching, envy, we pander to corporations instead of facing the reality of the injustice and cruelty in this world.  We look down on refugees when all they want is their basic human rights; a life without conflict and war, a life where they have food and clean drinking water, a life where they have adequate shelter and warmth, a life where they can feel secure and safe.  Where is our compassion? for ourselves? for others?  Why are most of us not enraged at the injustices going on in this world.

The media and government are constantly putting distractions in our way, and we allow it.  In the UK, it is currently ‘Brexit’ dominating news topic, it is an absolute farce and has been from the start.  British citizens voted ‘blind’ in the referendum, those who voted to leave were told lies by political parties.  Lies such as the UK would save millions of pounds per week if we left the EU, money that would be spent on the NHS …. this was a lie!  Lies were told about immigration, that it would dramatically reduce, wrong, these were false promises because the details of leaving had not been negotiated, people voted for the unknown, the implications and consequences both short and long term were unknown then and they still are.  In my opinion the referendum should be unlawful, but unlike most people, politicians seem to sit outside of the law on matters such as the future of the country.

Try to see through these distractions, because that is what they are, these are man-made issues, difficulties created by us, the real cost of Brexit is unknown, but the British people will feel the consequences for a long long time to come whether good or bad.  Opt out of this madness by refusing to give it your attention, it is out of our (British Citizens) hands for now.  Let’s start focusing on bettering this world, starting with yourself by healing yourselves, meditation, self love, compassion for all, both human and non-human.

I feel incredibly sad right now because not only is the world we live in selfish and greedy, there are not enough people who even recognise this let alone want to change it.  People are suffering and dying unnecessarily and we do nothing apart from sympathise when we watch the news.  When that story disappears, because the media chooses to dominate it with political farces such as Brexit, we ignorantly forget about the horrendous hardships people in the world are facing.

The unnecessary suffering we inflict on animals via multiple mediums is abhorrent, we enslave, torture and slaughter them to eat them; we dump our rubbish in the oceans, causing suffering and death to many marine life, we kill marine animals by fishing and as a consequence kill many more through by-kill, drift nets, beautiful creatures of the ocean and we treat them vilely, with absolutely no appreciation of life.  If you can’t appreciate the lives of others, both human and non-human then you can’t appreciate your own life.  Most of us would not deliberately hurt any animal or fish, but we are happy for it to go on, if we close our eyes we do not see the suffering, but your sub-conscious knows the truth.

I dream of a beautiful world where we treat others with the same compassion we would treat those close to us, where we treat all animal life with the equal amount of compassion, life is beautiful, if we let it be!  Please take responsibility for the consequences of what you do in your life, what you eat, what you purchase, how you spend your time, how you treat all life.

Some of the things you can do to make a change:

  • Don’t eat, use or wear animals products
  • Avoid plastic
  • Only purchase cruelty friendly products, look for the ‘bunny’ logo
  • Stop being selfish
  • Opt out or minimise social media interactions, only comment or like something that is ethical, compassionate or you feel very strongly about, stop giving attention to dangerous idiots who promote selfishness, materialism and greed, instead give your attention to those who are trying to make changes for the better, especially that benefit others, the planet and all that inhabit the planet.
  • Take a moment to think about the suffering we inflict on others either directly, indirectly or through ignorance.
  • Make a vow to change.  today I will vow to start writing to corporations to make changes, corporations will only make changes if it affects their profits, if millions of letters are received by a company to stop animal testing, they will change.  We let corporations dictate to us, let’s turn the tables with our cash, so we dictate to them what we want.
