I refer to three posts in another thread.
The final two posts on page 26 and the first post on page 27 of that thread.
The first of those posts raises an issue, yet provides no specific suggestion of an alternative.
Nevertheless the issue does concern me. But what can one do when, as far as I know, all supermarkets sell non-vegan food and many companies who produce vegan food also produce non-vegan food too?
Widening the discussion, I have read of vegans who will not sit down to eat at the same table where anybody is eating non-vegan food. So the widespread concept of going to, say, a dinner of a society and choosing the 'vegetarian' (sic) option and being seated at the same table as the m-word eaters does not work.
Yet is this any different from people in a debate refusing to speak from the same platform as someone whose views they oppose? I remember on television news some video of a debate where one then well-known politician leapt from the platform where someone had stated views he regarded as beyond the pale and spoke standing in front of the platform rather than speak from the same platform.
So is this an issue of guilty by association? If so, how can a vegan avoid that while still getting food to eat?
At what distance does someone have responsibility for things, morally rather than legally?
Please note that I am not posting this in the hope of replies in the nature of "Don't worry StarDreamer, you are doing what you can as best you can", I am interested in the ethics of the situation in the world as it is.
I am interested in the views of both vegans and non-vegans. People may, but need not, mention whether they are vegan or not vegan.
I hope that nobody claims this to be a thread about a thread. This thread is not a thread about another thread, it simply references in this thread three posts in that thread that are off-topic for that thread so that the ethics of the situation can be discussed in this thread without disrupting that thread.
