But basically thinks that reducing is better than nothing ( like we do). It’s surprising how many people assume that it’s not about veganism to him though! I always quote the title of the book to them, too. The other day, I heard someone say he’s afraid to use the word vegan. I’m sure that’s why he calls himself the Vegan Strategist. 🙂

I agree. I don’t think Tobias means it as a final step at all (hence, “How to Create a Vegan World”). And anything that helps people realize they don’t need to eat animals is good in my book! I’m not sure about directly advocating for reducetarianism (he cites this more as a possibility). I would say that we have Reducetarians who are already doing a really good job of that. To me, vegans can do better nudging people towards the goal of veganism.

Comment on Review: “How to Create a Vegan World: A Pragmatic Approach” by Tobias Leenaert by Vegan4Eva https://modvegan.com/tobias-leenaert/#comment-206 Tue, 21 Nov 2017 16:29:03 +0000 https://modvegan.com/?p=1424#comment-206 I mostly agree with your opinion on this great book. It is well thought through. However, the meat reduction thing is not a final step… So with that in mind, I think it’s a really good idea. Tobias is not asking for people to eat less meat so they would eat less meat, but he’s seeing that as a first step towards veganism, which is an important nuance. At least that’s what he says at his readings. It’s easier to convince people to eat less meat, because that way they will realize it’s not as difficult as they thought and they are then far more likely to take the next step towards veganism. 🙂 Reducing is not the goal but a great start!

Comment on Raw Alignment’s water fast UTI cure could kill by ModVegan https://modvegan.com/raw-alignment-water-fast-uti-cure/#comment-205 Thu, 16 Nov 2017 22:03:20 +0000 https://modvegan.com/?p=780#comment-205 I suppose it depends a great deal on how you define the word ‘nonsensical’. If, by nonsensical, you are referring to peer reciewed papers from academic journals and broad scientific consensus. For you, reasonable evidence seems to be that which confirms the beliefs you have about the way things work.

In terms of medical science vs “nature”, I find this division absurd. Modern medical science is not in any way separate from nature. It’s just an attempt to understand and use it.
