We are born vegan. From birth, this culture conditions us in many ways. The burden of proof is not on the vegan to explain why he or she chooses to live this way, instead, the burden is on the meat-eater to explain why it is necessary to eat meat when faced with the above conclusions. Only when a meat-eater can support his or her destruction of conscious life can I consider having respect for them.
