/veganism/ - Go Vegan

What is the difference between animals and humans that justifies killing one for food when we can just eat plants, but not the other?

If it could be demonstrably proven that practically all plant life, and especially the edible varieties that people would consume to sustain themselves, has consciousness, can feel pain, can display some degree of intelligence, and other qualities that vegans attribute to animals in order to assert that their lives are as meaningful or valuable as human life, and therefore should be preserved, would it not stand to reason that their moral high ground would be shattered, should they continue to eat said vegetation? Then what would we eat? Rocks and sand, so that we may honor the sanctity of all life on the planet?

>b-but what about muh environmentalism

Fine, you can have that point in your favor. The agriculture industry and animal slaughterhouses are in large part responsible for the destruction of the planet to some degree, but then again there are many other sources of this destruction and, in order to fully address the issue, we as a society would need to not only cease these activities and industries, but also find tenable alternatives that would allow the products that are yielded from them to continue to be produced. Is such a thing even possible?

Fruits and nuts would still exist.

Carnist often become plants-right activist when confronted with the system of veganism, ultimately, if this were true, considering that vegans are not against eating meat or killing animals per se, but it is a position of minimizing harm to the greatest degree possible and practicable as in the definition of it then eating plants would still be vegan. If plants were sentient in this way, which they aren't, then not eating meat would reduce the overall harm to them and allow us to live. We aren't against humanity.
