In Echo of Freedom i have already talked quite a lot about veganism, some may believe that it makes me a political vegan, but i wish to take a stance against this newly emerging movement. I am political, and i am vegan, both these things define me, but i am not a political vegan, and i urge others to be careful with using ethical choices as a basis for political belief systems.

This is somewhat of a side note here, but the question of prisons is an interesting one. Like you, I agree they are inhumane, and probably do more harm then good. But, ethically speaking (ethics being universal rules, rather than subjective preferences), I don't think they're necessarily wrong. I don't think there is anything unethical with eye-for-eye justice? On a bit more relevant note, although I am also vegan, I have a conflicted view of the natural world. Specifically about carnivores. Why should they be allowed to murder other animals? (Some murder for power and territory, not just for food.) Why should we tolerate their ignorance and cruelty, but not our burger-eating neighbours? Now that's a real dilemma.
