The Vegan Thesis

How is my book related to veganism?

Writers from Gary Francione to Steve Best are all anti-capitalist to varying degrees (Gary broadly, Steve strongly).

I present Ayn Rand’s case that capitalism is the moral basis for social organisation. But i also show that the same reasoning serves as a theoretical foundation for veganism.

To be clear, this is not capitalism in its present state, but in the form outlined by Ayn: hinted at, partial, an unknown ideal.

As such, no one that accepts the validity of this ideal can dismiss veganism. They may disagree that capitalism and veganism are inextricably bound, but they can’t simply brush it off as though it has no consequence.

In turn, no one that accepts the validity of veganism can dismiss capitalism—as i describe it.
