Did I underestimate things or what?
I forget that when you post something on social media that challenges the status quo you can’t expect rational discussion.
This is exactly what happened when I shared a meme.
Someone who wasn’t able to respond to the meme like an adult would, dug through the vegan police facebook page to find some other ammunition.
And find it they did.
Once they found it, they used that image to change the direction of the discussion.
And yes, my “support” for one nation over the Animal Justice Party also came out. Though I will be talking about that in a later piece (maybe tomorrow).
All we’re trying to is show people what is happening.
So we’re opening up the doors
And lighting up the dark!
These are the emotive words you hear when you watch the trailer for the movie Lucent by Chris Delforce and Aussie Pigs.
Whilst the movie has been recieved with open arms from animal ‘activits’ around the country, the question needs to be asked, “Are they really showing us what is happening?”
Let me tell you, the answer is surprising.
Two Minds Writing This
When I sat down to write this piece, I really was of two minds about it. On the one hand, as a vegan who wants the use of other animals to cease, part of me wants more movies like this to be made and shown.
Then there is the more pragmatic side of who knows and understands that films like this are only of interest to those who are already vegan, or those who are already thinking of going vegan.
To everyone else, they are just the work of extremists, and those who have no sense of reality.
And this is where the problem lies.
