If he has to eat something with butter, he will
So, while at first [Jeffrey Moussaieff] Masson comes off as just the kind of vegan booster that drive me crazy, by the end of the article, he’s sort of inadvertently come to a rationale about veganism that could present a workable solution, which is that he is flexible, and not religious about it. If he has to eat something with butter, he will. And in specific circumstances—a bike trip in Italy he mentions at the end of the piece—he plans to scrap his diet entirely because it just won’t work with the exercise and with the Italian food.
