James, as an older vegan myself, I understand your malaise. There always will be a younger generation that is joining up at sporadic times for various reasons. Maybe Rise Against got some kids to be vegan. Maybe that lame tv show on Sea Shepard (Whale Wars) did. Then you have to think about those people. Some might be nice mild mannered, the kind who do phone campaigns. Other might be 'hands-on', the kind who do direct action. But what it all comes down to is the longevity of people's convictions. If one kid wants to be vegan today, will he tomorrow? Seeing ads for McDonalds above a Rise Against song do not help. Our culture is inundated with ads infinite times a day.
This all seems like a digression, but I hear your concerns. You are validated in them. Don't forget too, that everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

Here are some responses to my comment below, my counter-response, and responses to that. Nobody "gets" me.

I've heard a song on the radio a few times I sort of liked and decided just a moment ago to find out who sang it and what it was all about by doing a Google search of the lyrics that I could make out.

It turned out to be White Flag Warrior by Rise Against. It was on some sort of lyrics page, that I don't remember at the moment. Anyway, at the top was an ad for some sort of McDonalds "super burger". This struck me as bitterly ironic, given it's juxtaposition, maybe even "top billing" over the idealistic song lyrics---Rise Against is a hardcore vegan/vegetarian band with strong animal-rights beliefs. It seemed almost like an arrogant and sinister "victory statement" of social conformity and crass consumerism over idealism. I wonder, does Rise Against know about it? And if so, what do they think? I'm not crying "SELL OUT!", but I just sometimes wonder, as an old, square, boring, burned-out vegan myself, how much all this "hip, strident, hardcore" veganism is a huge pose, a charade with little substance? As a word and rallying cry, veganism has grown by leaps and bounds, but as a practice, statistics have shown it's no bigger than it was 20
or 30 years ago.

Maybe I'm just in another of my cynical, pessimistic, aging-crank moods.

Any thoughts?

Hello Vegans!

I call myself a 99% vegan. Who knows, maybe I'm 99 POINT NINE, and that's close enough to just call myself vegan without any guilt or reservation (which I still tend to have in calling myself vegan, right, wrong, crazy or not).

I'm working on a zine called The Turtle Budget Vegan. I'm also toying with the idea of trying to start a vegan APA (Google: Amateur Press Association), but Heath Row's recently been trying to revive APA's and doesn't seem to have had a lot of success. Apparently it's hard to gather and maintain a "committed membership core".

Hope we can get something going here, and it'd be really nice to see it in the Papernet as well, if not primarily.
