Should Vegans HATE Non-Vegans?

are vegans elitist exclusionists who hate everyone who isn’t vegan? does not being vegan make you an awful person worthy of a swift kick in the groin? i share my personal position on this matter whether i hate non-vegans. i’d love to hear what you think about this matter!

In short, no.

What good does hate do? It doesn't persuade anyone to become vegan. Living by example and offering explanations for our choices when asked, does that.

I've only been vegan a month. I used to eat meat. I'm not going to hate myself for being uninformed/doing the best I could at the time with the limited knowledge I had. Likewise I'm not about to start hating others for their choices.

Hate is completely pointless. It's only used by those who enjoy conflict and drama, vegan or otherwise.

Emily -Another fabulous video!!!

The writing, producing & production of these nuggets is nothing less than awesome. You really break down the message & deliver it perfectly. I'm not sure how much time you devote to this, but it reeeeeally pays off. My hat's off to you.

EDIT: One more Patreon member!!!

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.

Does hate exist, or is it only an absence of love?

I would think the absence of love would be apathy, not hate.

I don't know. Dark is the lack of light. Cold is absence of warmth. Maybe hate is total apathy.

Well, they say the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference.

Is there a difference between indifference and hate?

I would say yes...... I think hate requires you to care and is a form of passion albeit a negative one, whereas indifference is the absence of caring.

No, no one should hate anyone. Through my experience being vegan, I've found that I am less aggressive and irritated than someone who eats meat. Something I've noticed while eating meat is that I get attacked by people verbally.... It was almost like I was holding up a big target sign telling people to pick on me.

Eating vegan however, it's like I was holding a big sign saying love me and contribute to a higher quality of life for me. It's strange how this works...... Drinking alcohol does similar effects.... The holding the target saying give me trouble and more trouble comes into your life.
