Giving people the green light to consume dairy and other animal products
If you promote vegetarianism as the “compassionate” choice, you are giving people the green light to consume dairy and other animal products. That explains why we all know many vegetarians who have never gone vegan. Why should they when they are being told by the self-appointed experts that they have discharged their moral obligations to animals by being vegetarian?
