Norm - A short film on what it feels like to be vegan in today's society

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Some brilliant work here. Just published today. A society where raping women is the norm, and being a "consensual" is quite deviant.

 

Edit: A very interesting take and angle, but yes, pretty uncomfortable at times. Please consider the subject matter for trigger warnings.

I watched it all. I can distance myself pretty well from things, and this vid was a great visualization exercise for cross-referencing.

This is pretty much how it is to be vegan, and after it I tested out experiencing various perspectives about veganism to see where and why people are coming from.

I tried the omnivorous angle, and the advocate angle on for size. It was enlightening. Now I'm trying it on from a privileged vs poverty angle.

 

I wonder if there's a parallel close to  what this video pictures.

It's .... very uncomfortable. Looking around at reddit threads and what not, there are a huge bunch of pros and cons and quite a bit of controversy. An interesting angle on things, but it remains, well, yes, very uncomfortable. It manages to put something forth that is so shocking and then make a comparison, and at the same time I wonder if the nature of the comparison is too much. Ah, I go back and forth.

@Paulyboy  There is something to embracing the dark side for sure.  Maybe I'll return to it.  Meanwhile I'm reading Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment which is a journey into the darker aspects of the soul.
