I’m really glad you enjoyed the post. It’s always interesting to me how many people are attracted to minimalism, veganism, and zero waste. I think the idea of enjoying life fully – but not at the expense of others – is a common thread amongst all three. Have a beautiful day!

Comment on Minimalism and Veganism: Making the Connection by peckishvegan https://modvegan.com/veganism-minimalism-making-connection/#comment-223 Mon, 19 Feb 2018 09:39:36 +0000 https://modvegan.com/?p=949#comment-223 Really interesting post. I am one year vegan and about one month into applying some minimalist ideals. I had never thought about this connection – but you are right, they are logically connected. I certainly know that both choices have made a really positive difference. Great insight!!

Comment on Tyson Invests in Clean Meat Startup Memphis Meats by ModVegan https://modvegan.com/tyson-memphis-meats/#comment-222 Mon, 05 Feb 2018 05:35:00 +0000 https://modvegan.com/?p=1845#comment-222 That’s an interesting parallel – I had no idea the French felt that way about gavage. I assumed they were more rational than the rest of us and just accepted it as part of the process. It’s comforting, in a way, to learn that cognitive dissonance is near universal. Hopefully, people will begin to realize that such useful fictions/forms of willful deception are unnecessary and outdated. Thanks for stopping by!

This represents the cognitive dissonance marked by the contrast between the intense cruelty of foie gras production and its staple status as a festive food, and it’s crazy to think that it applies to all meat production in the other side of the Atlantic.
