So now I am the vegetarian who likes eating meat. In order to combat the accompanying guilt, Ive been applying the Buddhist concept of the Middle Path to my dilemma. This approach lies between the austerity of vegetarianism (and the torturous nature of veganism) and the indulgence of regular, thoughtless meat eating. It is the happy medium followed by the Dalai Lama himself, who graciously treats each infrequent serving as a delicacy. This is the same path that Bill Nye endorsed during his lecture, and it is the path that will make the most headway in both protecting animals rights and reducing global warming.



I guess his last paragraph is good in a certain sense, but man talk about dumb.

His name seems to be Laura.



Anyway, I don't know what to think of the article or opinion piece or whatever. On the one hand, I do understand her point that sniffing glue should be everyone's personal choice. But on the other hand, sniffing glue may affect one's relationships, especially with loved ones, and so the idea of an isolated personal choice seems to be illusory. And even though her individual experiences might be positive (that's a pretty subjective evaluation though), it hardly warrants a generalization about glue-sniffing as a whole.

Sorry, her. I don't think her experiences are positive whatsoever. i just meant at least she was saying **** being vegetarian, at least she is telling people not eating meat is good for the environment. But I really think it is a horrible reason to write an article. I've never understood the "I used to be vegan"

She must have been sniffing glue while she wrote that article.
