Being persuasive in your conversations with non-vegans is really difficult and involves a lot of learning and optimization. Today I want to share something with you that I observed in the way that I used to talk to bystanders when I was new to outreach.
🌱
Naturally, we state the arguments that got us into veganism. This is fairly intuitive because I also think that we naturally choose the form of activism that either made us vegan that we thought would have made us vegan. Sometimes we also like to tell our conversation partner why he/she is wrong. Both are very suboptimal methods to use.
🌱
The very intention (and also the hardest part!) is to find out what the objections of the other person are concerning veganism. We then should try to think like this person does and argue for veganism with set of values and morals that not we have but the other person (after all, you are not talking to a mirror!). This of course is highly dependent on what person you are talking to and will be different with every single conversation. This is what makes it so hard, as it requires you to act dynamically and adaptive.
🌱
From my own experience it is not a wise choice to directly or implicitly tell the other person that their ethics and morals are wrong. Why? Because ethics and morals are deeply rooted in one’s personality. Arguing with that will definitely increase the chances of the defense mechanisms coming up, decreasing your chance of having a rational discussion about veganism.

„What you see here are the standard practices of the animal industries”. Such a small sentence, such a massive meaning. These are not some isolated cases, this is business as usual.
🌱
We are so ungrateful for the position we are in, especially the western countries. We don’t need to fear of our lives and most of us can have their family around, play with friends. All that we deny to the rest of the animal kingdom that is on this planet to share it with us.
🌱
All the major damage that has been done to this planet has been done by humans, because we somehow have this ego complex and think we’re the most important species and the world was created for us. If we were really smart we wouldn’t  destroy our home planet and most certainly grant our companions in fur, feather or scales at least the basic right to live.
🌱
But we rather turn a blind eye on their suffering and that’s why it takes vegan animal right activists to shine a spotlight on these injustices. Remember that when you speak up for animals you will cause controversy. Some people will start to hate you, but some others will start to love you. Ask yourself which one of the two groups really matter to you.
🌱
The only way to not offend anybody is to stand for nothing, say nothing and be nothing. The truth is always uncomfortable to tell, but it is necessary to accelerate a change in society.

I was silent for way too long. Even after becoming a vegan it took me over 5 years to talk about it openly. I now talk to people on the street, give speeches at vegan events and do lectures in schools.
🌱
I took me such a long time before it dawned on me that being vegan is not enough. When you are a bully in school and some day you realize it is wrong to take advantage of children who might be inferior to you strength wise, you stop it. But how weird is it to still watch silently when other bullies intimidate classmates?
🌱
If you really think this is wrong, you take action. And this is what vegan activism is doing. Not only stopping to contribute to the harm, but to acknowledge that there is something wrong in the world and to take the responsibility to change it. And there are almost infinite ways on how you can use your talents/interests/resources to do so.
🌱
Even if time is not a resource you are able to offer to the animals, you can still support activists that you think are doing a tremendous job. And that doesn’t necessarily involve money either, it can be sharing their posts, spreading the word, asking schools/universities to offer the possibility for them to give a talk.
🌱
We are all in this together and together we will create a vegan world. No animal industry will be able to stop us. You want to know why? Because they have 90%+ of the world’s population against them who deep down know that veganism is the way to go. The only thing that’s holding them back is conditioning. And this is what the vegan activists will crush, so become one and join making the world a better place! ✊🏻

I love talking to young people for several reasons. They are the leaders and the decision-makers of tomorrow, they are the future.
🌱
Most of them are not as conditioned from society as older people. Still, they have been taught that it’s okay to pet dogs and cats, and to eat pigs, cows and chicken. The first of injustice that a human being is taught is at the dinner table.
🌱
But often it is children and young adults who see animal agriculture for what it is: unnecessary suffering for a 10 minute pleasure at the dinner table. Our society values their tastebuds higher than another sentient beings entire life.
🌱
Most young people couldn’t kill an animal themselves, and deep down they know that it’s wrong to pay someone else for something that would give them nightmares.
🌱
It is easier to speak to younger people when you remind yourself how you have been at their age. What did worry you, what did you care about? Keep exactly your personal answer to these questions in mind when you want to optimize your success rate in your outreach. Let us change the world with them together.

Ethics over habits. Besides I love the design from @seb.alex , I also appreciate the message.
🌱
For so long I did turn a blind eye on the suffering of animals. For 19 years of my life I ate the dead bodies of land animals, for 20 years I consumed carcasses of fish and for 21 years I drank another species‘ mother‘s milk. To spend some time on activism every single day is the least I can do.
🌱
I’m glad I was able to change and I see my former life as the motivation to educate other people, because I was uneducated about the topic at one point in my life. I wished somebody would’ve told me everything about the horrors of animals products and how unnecessary they are in modern times.
🌱
There may have been times where it was necessary to eat animals to survive, but not in 2018 and especially not when you can read this text on your smartphone or computer. Today we go into supermarkets and can buy anything we want.
🌱
So let’s talk about moral progress, something you cannot talk about when you argue about a scenario from thousands of years ago. Let’s question our habits - and start with our ethics.

The fundamental element to uncover real injustice is dialog. Since obviously not everybody is aware of the immense suffering of animals, interchanging each other’s viewpoint is important to reveal that there is something wrong.
🌱
There different stages at where you can do activism/having discussions, and each of these stages serve different purposes.
🌱
You can be political, in a political party or organization, trying to change the system from above. Most street activism, including the cubes, do the opposite: they focus on the individual person.
🌱
Having these personal discussions means to really get to know the fears and objections of the individual und reveal the real reasons why they are not vegan yet. And this is important. This process can become political later on, when there are enough individuals asking for a change of the system.
🌱
But all of this wouldn’t have happened, when there weren’t people planting seeds in individuals peoples minds.

Last weekend was very special to me. The @anonymousforthevoiceless Frankfurt chapter was having a picnic at a park. Originally approx. 20 people confirmed their attendance, but we ended up being over 50 people in total (and therefore by far the biggest group in the whole park).
🌱
It was so beautiful to see so many different people come, everyone bringing their own foods and share it with everyone. We had so many nice chats about veganism and other topics and share good laughs. I got to meet so many new individuals, which I’m always thankful for. Some told me that my social media work inspires them and they can learn from it. This blew my mind. I put up on Instagram/YouTube/Facebook what I find important to share, but to hear that people find use in it and that it makes sense to them is mind-boggling to me.
🌱
@inezlein asked me if I would be down to give a spontaneous outreach workshop and all other activists were interested in hearing what I had to say. This is what you see in the picture above. We had a couple of pretty interesting discussions afterwards, something I really appreciate. Because there is always something to learn from having a discussion and the beautiful thing is: Everybody takes away something different from that.
🌱
It is so much easier to respect someone else and their opinion if you have the attitude that your conversation partner knows something that you don’t. And you should be eager to find out what that is, as it broadens your horizon.

Sometimes talking to non-vegans about veganism can quite literally be like talking to a wall. There some things that you can do on your part to break the ice.
🌱
Take what they say seriously, and treat it like it’s the first time your hear their arguments. Obviously, if your either well-prepared or well-experienced (or ideally both) then you know all the answers. But it is definitely not helpful to convey the impression that you are bored.
🌱
To take your conversation partner serious, you have to listen. While you do that, you create a checklist in your mind with all the objections. This is so powerful. Especially when you are referring to an argument that they made 5 minutes ago - they know you not only listened, you also remember.
🌱
Additionally to the checklist, you also want to prepared your words - your next sentence, your next question, so that there is a nice flow. Remember that it is your task as an activist to create the perfect atmosphere/environment where people are willing to listen and therefore more likely to change. You see: it is quite a demanding task and requires tremendous amount of concentration and multi-tasking.
🌱
But the most important part comes after the conversation: reflection. Reflect what you did wrong and what you could have done better. Especially, when the conversation went bad. This is the most challenging part when becoming a full-time activist, because it really requires to be honest to yourself and to acknowledge all the things you need to work on. It is a demanding task for the ego, the inner self. That’s why becoming good at something is so rare: It is incredibly difficult.

Veganism has given me so much strength. Not so much physical strength, I see that just as a compensation to the mental aspect of vegan activism. It has given me inner strength. I’m not doing something, because everybody does it and I’m not against something because it’s ‚cool‘ or ‚fashionable‘ to be anti-something.
🌱
Every single day I can ask myself whether living this lifestyle is the right thing to do and my answer has always been ‚yes!‘ ever since I made the decision to go vegan almost 7 years ago. And that’s a great building of inner strength when you constantly challenge the status quo and yet come back to the same answer every single time.
🌱
Morality is not something that is subjective. Even most non-vegans agree that harming animals is wrong when they see footage of slaughterhouses, and even the naysayers will rapidly change their mind if it was them holding the knife to kill an innocent being. Yes, there are people the cut really cut an animal’s throat (obviously, otherwise slaughterhouses wouldn’t exist), but they haven to deaden their feeling to endure this mental torture.
🌱
And even then, mental illnesses like PTSD (that can be found in people who were at war, i.e. killed people) are not uncommon in the animal industry. Studies conducted by the military during several of the last wars have revealed that humans are no killing machines: Most people didn’t really aim at their enemies, they shot over their heads on purpose.
🌱
Our moralities and ethics shouldn’t be dictated by a small minority of the population that could slit an animal’s throat, but rather by the large majority of the population that couldn’t. That’s what I fight for.

Why a vegan mother should raise their kids vegan. Some days ago, I got a message from a vegan mother who doesn’t raise her kids vegan. She message me, saying she doesn’t want to force her opinion on her kids.
🌱
Now, there several points to consider. First, as a parent, it is your responsibility to take care of your children, and that means making decisions for them until they can do it themselves (and it’s your job to lead them to this state).
🌱
That involves sharing your knowledge and your experiences with them. If you have discovered that harming animals is wrong, why wouldn’t you teach that to your children while raising them vegan? Obviously, they don’t understand from the start, but they will eventually.
🌱
Often times it is overlooked that giving your children meat or feeding them a vegan diet are both choices that you take for your children - so it is “forcing your opinions on kids” either way. With the major difference that one of these choices has a victim.
🌱
Plus, when you are a vegan you know that animals products are likely to promote certain kinds of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, inflammation, overweight, etc. As a parent you wish the best for your children - and that’s why you leave animal products off their plate. For their health, for the environment, and most of all, for the animals.

Why a vegan mother should raise their kids vegan. Some days ago, I got a message from a vegan mother who doesn’t raise her kids vegan. She message me, saying she doesn’t want to force her opinion on her kids. 🌱 Now, there several points to consider. First, as a parent, it is your responsibility to take care of your children, and that means making decisions for them until they can do it themselves (and it’s your job to lead them to this state). 🌱 That involves sharing your knowledge and your experiences with them.

The ‘plants have feelings’ argument is one of the easiest to debunk. Either people bring it up because they don’t know what else to say or because they never thought about that these words actually mean.
🌱
Plants lack a central nervous system and pain receptors. Yes, they are alive, but they are neither sentient or conscious. No real scientific experiment has been successfully proven otherwise. Plants show reactions to stimulus, but these reactions don’t involve a thought process.
🌱
Assume that plants do indeed feel pain. The majority of plants are fed to livestock, so if you really care about plants, you go vegan.
🌱
If you would visit a slaughterhouse and greenhouse at the same day, ask yourself, which one of these two experiences won’t let you sleep at night? Who screamed in pain and terror? Who tried to escape? Who gave you the feeling that what you saw is fundamentally wrong? You know the answer. And deep down, you have always known the answer.

“Why should I go vegan?” - it’s a question I get asked a lot. But I don’t like how the question is phrased. It implies that I should give reason why someone should change their behavior. It doesn’t challenge the status quo.
🌱
The correct question will always be “why shouldn’t you go vegan?”, as this question requires reflection and constant confirmation on why you do what you do. This applies to everything in life - ask yourself why you do what you do, and not why you should change something.
🌱
And if one is really honest to oneself, then one will discover that there is not a single good reason to not go vegan. Remember that vegans know how tasty and delicious everything is - we have all been there. We know both worlds and are living vegan. You only know one side of the coin and don’t live vegan - go figure.
🌱
I personally loved the taste of meat (if you ever wanted to quote me, do that now). But at one point I knew that this cannot be a good enough justification to pay some else to slit their throat. I was hoping I need it for health, but I found the opposite to be true.
🌱
When you discuss with a vegan, remember: that persons knows just as much about animal products as you do, plus more, and doesn’t consume them. And when you think that going vegan is hard, remember that the other person did it. Probably that person is just as lazy as you. Nobody does something hard for no good reason. So I encourage you to listen very closely. The odds are, you will discover that vegans actually have a point.

The cube of truth demonstrations by @anonymousforthevoiceless are such a powerful form of demonstration.
🌱
The reason animal products are consumed is because their history is being kept in the dark. Have you ever seen the label of a milk carton? But when people are confronted with real footage from the dairy industry, they turn away.
🌱
I don’t buy that people don’t care. Yes there are people who have little to no empathy and there is a special term for those people - it is the definition of being a psychopath, which are around 1% of the population. But the other 99% don’t want to see animals suffering for meat, fish, dairy, eggs, wool, silk, down, leather, fur, vivisection, zoos, circuses. They understand that it’s wrong - they know injustice when they see it.
🌱
And activists are there to show them. We’re not forcing our opinions down anyone’s throat. If anything, this is what non-vegans do when they force a knife in an animals throat to have a piece of dead flesh. Is a 10 minute enjoyment at the dinner table really worth a whole life worth of suffering and premature death? If you don’t think so - go vegan. It’s the only way animals won’t get hurt.
🌱
Btw I love my new @heartcureclothing X @earthlinged collaboration hoodie! Feels even more empowering to do activism ✌🏻

This woman at first listened very closely to what I had to say. She then came to the conclusion that politicians are in duty to change something.
🌱
First things first, always lead by example. If you don’t agree with slaughterhouse footage, then don’t support animal exploitation. And that means going vegan - there is no third option. It is either going vegan or supporting animal suffering in one form or another.
🌱
It is always the easy way out to point the finger and suggest that others need to change. Living a vegan lifestyle means taking responsibility and becoming the change that you wish to see in the world. And if you changed your behavior, then you are consistent when you ask others to do the same.
🌱
It also is funny how a politician’s job (ideally) is to represent the people, yet many don’t want to go vegan to give these politicians a signal. A signal that consuming animal products is completely unnecessary and should be abandoned. It cannot be changed, if nobody raises their voice.
🌱
If you are vegan, but not yet an activist, please understand that you have the power to raise your voice and we will be heard. Never be afraid to speak on behalf of those who suffer needlessly.

It was a long awaited meeting between @seb.alex and me. We have texted and skyped back and forth, but we finally got to meet each other this last weekend.
🌱
Full time activists like him inspire me so much. Those people dedicate their lives to an uphill battle against industries that have more power, money and therefore influence. It definitely is also not a choice of cash - it is a choice of following your heart.
🌱
At the end of the day it is not about money in your life, it is about being able to look yourself in the mirror. When you know there is a massive injustice happening and you choose to ignore it, it definitively is the easy way out because it comes with no responsibility. But it won’t be a life of fulfillment.
🌱
Ultimately it doesn’t matter if you fight against animal cruelty 24 hrs a day, 1 hr a day or once a week. Important is that you fight, that you are a tiny piece of the overall puzzle that is the vegan world. A world where all sentient beings have the basic right to live and don’t need to fear the butchers knife.
🌱
(PS: yes it was very cold 😂).

Vegans have to deal with many prejudices, like being radical, extrem, pale, too skinny and constantly sick.
🌱
This should come with no surprise, since basically all mainstream media has at one point at least written one article to amplifies these views. Naturally, it is very convenient for most people as they don’t need to listen to what vegans have to say.
🌱
While there are vegans where one or multiple of these features fit, these traits also fit some non-vegans as well. These people are not representative for the vegan movement or lifestyle and we there are lots of vegans who smile and share a positive message.
🌱
It is way harder for anybody not to listen when you behave different to what they think of you. Practice your choice of words and learn how to phrase your arguments accordingly. This, in combination with the lack of necessity in modern times to depend on animal products will change people’s minds.

We all have a history, a life before we became a vegan. In this picture, you see mine. You can tell how much I loved eating meat and I am not afraid to share that with you.
🌱
I ate meat three times a day: salami and boiled ham for breakfast, Leberkäse for lunch and Schnitzel for dinner. I drank a liter of milk every single day. How come I ended up being a vegan?
🌱
I always considered myself to be a very peaceful, kind person. I oppose violence of any kind, I have never been in a fight in my whole life. The only reason I consumed animal products was because I was uninformed. Uninformed that my very choice to eat or wear animals is contradicting my own values and beliefs.
🌱
I went to the the zoo and the circus, because I only thought about myself and the entertainment, I never thought about what life must be like for an animal in these facilities.
🌱
But I don’t regret anything about this time, because there is no point in feeling bad about something I cannot change. I am proud that I aligned my actions with my moral values as soon as I knew better. I am proud that I made a connection that billions of people did not yet make. So I made it my choice to help others to make the same changes in their lives that I was able to do.
🌱
There is an alternative to all animal cruelty: it is veganism. It was the best decision of my life and if you are not yet vegan, trust me: it will be the best decision of your life, too.

One thing that will always be true and cannot be argued with is your personal story. It gives your conversation partner something they can relate to, hopefully.
🌱
Now keep in mind that everybody’s story on why and how they became vegan is unique - so use this aspect. Try to discover all the different aspects of your background and emphasize those who will give you an edge in the conversation.
🌱
I believe that many people do things out of sympathy. So show them that you at one point in your life have been at the point where they are now. Tell them on how you improved and developed your personality and your relationship with animals.
🌱
It shows that veganism is nether far-fetched, extreme or incredibly hard. It’s achievable and practical because you show them how. You lower the barrier. Once you have done that, their wall of defenses against veganism has a giant crack already.
🌱
With some people, their objections are already shattered. With others however, you have to be patient and do more work. Sometimes you have to destroy the remaining objections one by one, brick by brick, until their walls go down. This can, in some stubborn cases, take years.
