Thumbs up Chick fil-a Pouts during our protest...

Hey, there, wanted to share this footage with you all - despite its low production values!


It was a mini-protest: just another person and me. But we had a lot of fun.

Being a two-person show, I thought for sure Chick fil-a would just ignore us. But their uptight manager came out right away.

Significantly, they lied to the police, saying we were filming their employees (as in, filming the inside of the Chick fil-a from the outside).

Being that the company is apparently owned by Christians (I am also a Christian) I was disappointed that they lied.

I thought of writing a letter to corporate calling our the manager on that, but I don't want to take the focus off the real goal, which is, of course, hoping people will think twice before going into a Chick fil-a.

PS: A guy who asked us to pose for a picture was actually holding a Chick fil-a bag. He found us amusing, and when I handed him a leaflet from United Poultry Concerns, he promised to read it. Hopefully, he will.

Good for you.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Good going! You could have been a little more straightforward with the manager though. Surely chicken suffering is not a joke! Next time, tell it like it is! "What can I do for you" could have been met with "stop selling the flesh of confined, mutilated, drugged, tortured, slaughtered, and defenseless living, feeling beings".

Conscience vs. the collective

This is the key to Thoreau’s political philosophy. The individual is the final judge of right and wrong. More than this, since only individuals act, only individuals can act unjustly. When the government knocks on the door, it is an individual in the form of a postman or tax collector whose hand hits the wood. Before Thoreau’s imprisonment, when a confused taxman had wondered aloud about how to handle his refusal to pay, Thoreau had advised, “Resign.” If a man chose to be an agent of injustice, then Thoreau insisted on confronting him with the fact that he was making a choice. As Thoreau explained,

[It] is, after all, with men and not with parchment that I quarrel, – and he has voluntarily chosen to be an agent of the government.

This is the key to the typical vegan's political philosophy. The individual is the final judge of right and wrong. More than this, since only individuals act, only individuals can act unjustly. When Chick-fil-a advertises its product, it is an individual in the form of an actor, voice-over narrator, or local franchise manager whose words people hear. ...when a confused cashier had wondered aloud about how to handle their refusal to eat animals, the vegan protesters had advised, "Resign." If a man chose to be an agent of injustice, then the protesters insisted on confronting him with the fact that he was making a choice. As the protesters explained,

[It] is, after all, with men and not with parchment that we quarrel, – and he has voluntarily chosen to be an agent of the evil Chick-fil-a."

I believe I've passed the age of consciousness and righteous rage
I found that just surviving was a noble fight
I once believed in causes too
I had my pointless point of view
And life went on no matter who was wrong or right

Sorry Billy, just surviving is not always a noble fight. The manager should resign, even if it means he'll starve. Most likely he'll just move back into his mother's basement.
