The animal welfare/rights debates: does "welfarism" sell out the longterm interests of animals (as in the so-called "happy meat"), or does it open the door for discussion of the suffering AND animals' legitimate moral, social, and political rights?
Vegan longer than most terrestrial human beings have been alive. I've participated in the animal welfare/rights debates, yet have a strong interest in supporting the local humane societies and shelter volunteers.
