    Hi, I think David Attenborough and Noam Chomsky should go vegan. They must have considered it but for some reason haven't. It sounds like a great idea you have as there must be many people who...

    Very true, dairy and eggs kill & enslave animals same as meat does. There's no moral distinction I can see.

    I like it, but think maybe there could be a little more in there. I like the linking going vegan to the famous activists shown from history but think the animal rights part could be stronger somehow.
