Is There Danger of Elitism in the Animal Rights Movement?
AUGUST 27, 2009
I believe that we have to be inclusive in the animal rights movement and attack the system using all kinds of methods in all sorts of fields. Remember the impact John Brown and his failed raid on Harpers Ferry had on the abolition movement? I do think that there is a real elitism in the movement, however. Is a vegan's efforts at advocacy worth more than a vegetarian's or even a meat eater's if they happen to agree on the same issue?
