I'm puzzled by the way the answer to every problem we face is apparently "become vegan." Surely the solution to the many horrors of industrial farming is for consumers to accept that ethical agricultural practices require us to pay more for our food? This would result in better ecology without the pseudo-religious overtones of veganism, which in itself solves nothing. There are plenty of ecologically harmful vegetables being grown, and most vegan food is processed - full of fats and salts etc. - that are terrible for the human body. So when we see clear problems in our food production system we should think about how to ameliorate them, not simply chant "everyone should be vegan" until our last frontal cortex neurons die from exhaustion. Being vegan solves nothing because it's not actually a solution to most ecological problems, despite all propaganda to the contrary.
