If vegans want everyone to be vegan, there wouldn’t be much plants for both us, animals and humans, to survive on right? Because we will be fighting over the plants and maybe we might even start eating each other lool....

I'm not sure if this is the strongest argument that's ever been made against veganism.... But you're right, us humans will find something to fight over no matter what we do

If more people were vegan, there would be MORE food, not less. Most farm animals whose products we eat are fed crops grown on land that could grow crops for OUR consumption. And it's much more efficient to eat the plant-based food directly, than to feed it to animals and then eat the animals.

This is, in fact, a very good argument for veganism: In a world full of starving people, is it ethical to produce food less efficiently than we could be producing it?

No system is 100% efficient - every time something is eaten energy is lost and the higher up the food chain you go the more energy is wasted (search for pyramids of biomass). Plant based diets are the most efficient way we can get energy, short of learning to photosynthesise.

No we wouldn’t. They’ll be loads of animals and loads of humans

I don’t really see the point of going vegan for ethical reasons unless you make it illegal to not be vegan because even whilst you’re abstaining from buying meat products multiple others will be buying them; so the demand will still be there

Honestly, sometimes I get frustrated at the little impact I have on the world. But I believe that to see change you have to be the change. I don't want to Contribute to the killing of animals so I don't. I also believe in the ripple effect. Like my friends when inviting me to meals accommodate for my diet, and being a vegan sparks interest and conversations with other people. And it's better than nothing for sure, we're reducing deman for meat and increasing deman for more vegan alternatives.

If you think you have little impact then honestly why do you continue to do it? I see your point but honestly it’s one of those things that unless everybody does it there’s no point as there will always be demand for animal products and therefore there will always be animal suffering

Looking at the global collective, you actually do realise there is a huge vegan movement. And if you're vegan you're part of it. And I think the number of vegans will increase day by day not decrease, so change is on the way. And times are always changing. It's impossible to predict the future. I live by my morals, and I don't feel comfortable killing animals, that's why I don't eat meat. And I save about 300 animals a year so that's worth something.
