PALM OIL – How can a product that harms animals be called VEGAN ?

PALM OIL – How can a product that harms animals be called VEGAN ?

The Question forms the answer, we would expect that no product whatever its origin, plant or animal derived that directly and deliberately causes harm to animals, drives hunting, fuels climate change, can ever be Vegan.

Where do you draw the line ? cash crops, biofuel diesel… Is the world stacked so highly against ethics to render all products at some level or another non vegan ? Does following a planet based diet and working for animal rights against exploitation constitute enough depth to be Vegan ? the debate rages..

Palm oil is everywhere, it’s in everything, corporations and large scaling Vegan food distribution and supply love it. New Converts to veganism appear to be dependent on it and defend it as a corner stone of there new found cruelty free epiphany even questioning vegan ethics and practices within the established community.

VEGANISM Modern root and definition

In November 1944, Donald Watson along with five other non-dairy vegetarians, including Elsie Shrigley, defined and drew up the founding basis for a modernised clear evolution of non-dairy vegetarianism and created the word Vegan to define practice and lifestyle. “Vegan” is built from the first three and last two letters of ‘vegetarian’. In the words of Donald Watson, it marked “the beginning and end of vegetarianism.”

Veganism was defined as “the principle of the emancipation of animals from exploitation by man, and to seek an end to the use of animals by man for food, commodities, work, hunting, vivisection, and by all other uses involving exploitation of animal life by man”.

The supporting Slogans for the expanding Vegan movement have since been further clarified by five rules of mindfulness and  practice. the five rules are:

Image1

01 – For Compassion (Empathy and care in lifestyle choices)

02 – Non-Violence (pacifism for all species “thou shall not kill”)

03 – For People (With best Health and social responsibility in resource management considered)

04 – For the Planet (Free of greed and with the impact of animal agriculture on climate change carefully weighed )

05 – For the Animals (At all times in the best interests of the animal kingdom)

Palm oil, oil from the fruit of a palm tree might sound very vegan but when you compare the industry against the founding definition of Veganism and the core rules of mindfulness, we cannot see how it can ever be.

A slew of Vegetarian meddling in Vegan ethics has lead to extensive confusion as to how “Vegan” Palm oil can or could be.

As the fashionability of being “Vegan” grows so too does dilution of the practicing values of the vegan movement.

Vegans , becoming more and more frustrated with this dilution “authorising” the consumption of products that challenge the principles of Veganism simply because commercial globalised food manufacturing lace it in all processed foods. This and the normalising of cruelty have coined the term “apologetic vegan”.

The term “Apologetic Vegan” though is probably also wrong. Someone who does not follow the definition of Veganism can be challenged as simply being not Vegan. There are no options for the Vegan, like Honey on Sunday or a bit of Horse riding wont do any harm. There are no, I can’t check the ingredients, it wont hurt once or twice, so I will have it anyway etc…These are the principles of a vegetarian NOT the Vegan.

Who’s Who  in the grey area between “Vegetarian” /”Vegan” ? 

http://www.veganpeace.com/veganism/vegan.htm

http://www.enkivillage.com/difference-between-vegan-and-vegetarian.html

Palm oil and the consumption of it, though plant based cannot in any stretch of the imagination be Vegan as it conflicts directly with 4 of the 5 rules of mindfulness. Though Palm oil is as Vegan as a Monsanto sweet corn GM crop, it is plant based, though when taken in isolation back to the definition of Vegan, it does not make the grade.

As Vegans we must at all times look to the root definition of Veganism and check products in isolation against that definition and where any question lies in to the ethics of a product, seek an alternative or do without.

The point is that we do not live in a vegan world, and until we do we cannot be wholly vegan , what we must do though is to at all times strive to be as close to the pure root and meaning of veganism as is possible. Palm Oil is a clearly obvious non ethical product and the expectation is that all modern vegans would refuse to consume it.

Let’s look at Palm oil itself – Yes its plant based and it’s freely used in processed foods, makeup, household cleaners, toiletries, bio-diesel, but it carries a huge price that challenges the founding ethics of the modern vegan movement, concerns over deforestation, habitat destruction, loss of biodiversity, species extinction (Orangutans), and a slew of human rights violations in the devastation or deforestation clearings that Palm oil production leaves behind it on the ecological battlefield.

The impact of Palm oil production on its habitat has always been well known by the commercial producers, though it was not until Biruté Galdikas, one of the greatest scientists and primatologists of the 20th century, and founder of the Orangutan foundation international in 1986 voiced concerns over the impact of exploding Palm oil production that the issue started to gain Main press.

Biruté Mary Galdikas has spent more than 40 years living and studying the behaviour of orangutans inside the once pristine rainforest of Borneo, Indonesia.

The rainforests threatened by palm oil production are uniquely lush and diverse, housing over half of the world’s species of flora and fauna. In recent years, conflict palm oil harvesting has become the leading contributor to rainforest destruction.

Not only are wild orangutans displaced in the name of palm oil, but they are also killed as pests when they return to what’s left of their habitat. In addition to the environmental concerns, palm oil carries serious health implications.

According to the documentary Sumatra Burning, an estimated 60,000 locals suffer from breathing complications due to smog caused by deforestation. Palm oil laborers are compensated with next-to-nothing wages. Many native communities have tried to stand up to these exploitative corporations, only to be forced out of the discussion.

Unfortunately, it appears that many ethical vegan companies are not immune from corporate mal-governance. By using ingredients as destructive as palm oil, these businesses are essentially standing for profit above all else.

Palm oil companies do not have a good record of wthical conduct, offering financial remuneration of 100$ a head for the shooting of orangutans despite this being illegal under Malaysian  and Indonesian laws of governance with regard to Palm Oil. Sign the below petition to stop this practice:

The Vegan Community often opens discussion on comparison between palm oil and commercial vegetable and grain crops, in the sense that the globalised scale production of any crop also falls in to the category of “vegetarian” not “vegan”and brings into question any farming that is not a small holding or organic. Certainly the impact of pesticides and harvesting GM anti insect crops are not vegan.

Whether or not globalised farming is or is not vegan does not change the non ethical status of Palm Oil in any way. To justify classing Palm Oil as vegan on the basis that other industries also require scrutiny and where to draw the line is an aside to the actual issue of Palm oil in itself vis-a-vis the Vegan ethic.

Where the Vegan encounters globalised farming he/she is faced with, in the pure vegan ethic, a potential need to set up and manage a small holding or work with local produce groups to exchange and barter for non pesticide cash crop farming, sounds harder than it actually is.

Please see the below links to find out whether there is any traction in barter and tradein the UK and whether you are actually able to barter and trade small holding produce within the (UK) law:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/3179329/Swap-shop-Britons-turn-to-bartering.html

https://www.organiclea.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/sellingallotmentproduce.pdf

The extend in which Palm oil has been rolled in to product has been, to a large extent, concealed by using over 200 different names for Palm oil on ingredients to mask the extent of it’s usage and to trick consumers who concerned over its bad rep may overlook ingredients that have been “re-branded”.

Many food products have Palm Oil listed as ‘vegetable oil’ and in non food products, there is at last count over 200 alternate names for palm oil.

There is money in Palm oil, big money, enough to direct western governments to stop subsidizing local vegetable oils and to import foreign palm oils instead.

http://www.palmoilinvestigations.org/names-for-palm-oil

http://www.ran.org/palm_oil_s_dirty_secret_the_many_ingredient_names_for_palm_oil

So to conclude, Palm oil cannot be Vegan, It is certainly Vegetarian, it is definitely Plant Based but it’s not Vegan when taken in isolation against the definition of Veganism as it does not satisfy or meet the definition or practicing code of Veganism.

CHINA EYE

 FISHINABOX – Papillon – Animal Rights and Evolution in China 蝴蝶象征 – 进化 – 中国社会变迁

 (英媒)

中国社会变迁: 当代中国社会变迁主要指1978年以来中国社会的整体结构及其组成要素的运动、变化和发展。中国将如何演变?

China is a land of constant Change. For Many,  as we start the Chinese New Year, there is a sense of transformation – a time to evaluate life in its current state and set goals for manifesting change. With that in mind we look to Traditional Chinese Symbolism to raise awareness over change, for better or worse.

The butterfly symbolizes transformation change and evolution. We can draw lessons from watching the butterflies need for constant movement and liken it from where we are to our next phase of being.

蝴蝶象征 – 进化

蝴蝶象徵著進化的過程,蝴蝶從幼蟲到蛹的蛻變,是一種精神進化的的過程及象徵意義。想像一下就和人類的靈魂進化一樣,如同我們在心靈旅程中,經過無數次的人生 。

Fundamental and traditional Chinese cultural worldviews emphasize caring for animals, including Taoism and Buddhist vegetarianism. Iconic Classical Chinese Taoists Zhuangzi advocated compassion for all sentient beings. yet in recent times, in mainland China there has been increasing indifference to animal suffering. As China continues to grow exponentially with Global Trade and cultural reform, we must ask the question how can China hope to instill ethical “evolutionary” growth in line with unchecked demand for industrial growth ?

Image8

Mao Zedong’s revolutionary works were in great part, a source for cultural change and growing indifference to Animal rights, having been largely misunderstood on the subject of animal welfare. For the most part that they referred to caring about animals as “counter-revolutionary” which has caused an ingrained political indifference to “sentient” responsibility. In reality the Confusion came from a lack of reflection on Mao’s work to being tied to social events at the time of the revolution. These events focused on the Bourgeoisie owning animals and those animals being symbolic of concentrated wealth, corruption and power to which the Communist revolution was committed to bring to its knees.

In addition, Since 1978. China, politically, has reinforced growth and avoidance of famine at the expense of ethics in food production which is seen as essential in shoring up government stability and is core policy. Local officials are evaluated based on local jobs and revenue over an above animal welfare yet when we look at Chinese culture the symbolism  in the Chinese Horoscope there is a natural reverence with the Animal Kingdom which seems grossly out of step with industrial demand.

Despite Historical Chinese philosophy regarding Animals as “sentient”, there is increasing evidence around the exploding Fur trade industry, provision of “on the spot” livestock slaughter, globalized “stack em high” meat trade as well as, thankfully much less so when compared on scale though still focal, the cult of the Yulin Dog Festival.

China since the early 1990’s has lost focus on cultural priorities in favor of pursuing exploding available growth on the global markets.

Animal welfare and rights in China is a topic of keen interest for the nation as a backlash to ever more “effective” farming production.  Animal-rights activists in the West frequently condemn China’s treatment of animals despite hailing from nations that financially support and drive unethical “scale” practices in Asia and , from a retail, point of view happily embrace the by products  and by profits of the globalized livestock trade through Chinese expansion.

In response to constant Social Media pressure, movements towards animal welfare and animal rights are now finally expanding in China, including among them, homegrown Chinese activists groups. Chinese people are recognizing that driving production to meet foreign investment and demand is thoroughly a non Chinese and is culturally and ethically offensive to the general population.

With these sentiments; China, politically, and as a nation, needs to look to its cultural and ethical roots and step back from falling into the ever widening spiraling trap of the short term elitist gains of Western globalization.

When looking at the terminology “evolution” (from its literal meaning of “unfolding” of something into its true or explicit form) the process clearly should carry a connotation of gradual improvement or directional growth whereas the term “devolution” is as an antonym to evolution and indicates such degeneration or decrease in overall quality or perfection.

Is then the process of Globalization for China, and the impact on basic ethics through Industrial growth and “Westernized” economies (that also includes UAE / South Korea) demand for cheap product actually “devolution” ? A decaying of all that China has grown to become in it’s long historical journey ?

The way for China to move forward as a nation is to be fundamentally Chinese,. not to be just a parody of Western Greed. It is time for China, to settle its feet firmly on the ground and legislate on matters of ethics, to listen to rising dissent on the ground over animal welfare and close the doors to foreign greed and avarice.

แก่นสารของชีวิต Key to Life Buddhism – Album

A Devotional modern Buddhist Buddhism Soundscape focusing on Siddhartha Gautama’s controversial rejection of classical divinity in favour of a self-salvation. The album essentially centres on the theme that there is no authority but yourself.

The essence of the Album is about finding your own feet, direction and road in life. A road where only we ourselves bear responsibility for our actions and choices and the absolute rejection of the concepts of pre-defined destiny, creationist dictatorship or law and government directive.

By looking at the collecting thoughts of the spiritually evolving Siddhartha Gautama and the journey that brought him to achieving the status of Buddha, we can open and see a path to enlightenment, without outside socio- religious dictates.

LYRICS / STORYBOARD :

WEB 01  Heavenly Pink Cloud Dreams

It is how we use our lives, our time that counts, not how long we have or even what time is We make choices, we chose a life of significance or insignificance. We can choose to make a life, Biologically so to speak, to make a child or to dedicate to a cause , to leave a legacy for others to follow.

When all is accounted for, do people remember Buddha for his scriptures and teachings or his children ? The assumption that immortality can be achieved through procreation and the bloodline is not necessarily true as infamy can also be immortality.

All life sickens, ages and dies, so what sets one life apart form others ? That lies in how we use our time ? As a guide we can reach out to the Holy Texts, for a story told father to son may endure as long as a bloodline, but a scripture message carved in stone will most stand for longer.

To write a life of Meaning, we have to have purpose and meaningful intent and that intent lies in balance. A yin and a yan symbiotically entwined one around the other.

06 Singing Buddha

Whether or not there were /are Divine beings doing what we presume divinity does, matters not at all to the Buddhist.Siddhartha Gautama quite uniquely from all other spiritual leaders stipulates that there is no master, or, authority but ourselves when it comes to matters of salvation.

So by following this ethic Siddhartha Gautama skilfully side stepped the whole creationist issue by laying a path that spiritual enlightenment lied squarely under a principle of self-salvation.

Alone and free of Classical Divinity, the possibilities are enormous, we cannot save ourselves if we are afraid of Death and retribution, in that realm Divinity rules.

Siddhartha Gautama creates the desire to accept Sickness, Age and Death as a passing to enlightenment.

He was, the first real threat to Organised Creationism the world had ever seen and as such, remains today the established foundation of Alternative Culture.

The impact of this culture socially and on the self being three fold –

– That Consciousness to Realization of the self leads to empowerment
– The letting go , or , Obliteration of all earthly desire, need, concern removes all agents of social control wherever they have been applied
– This Obliteration opens a path to true Enlightenment and personal
spiritual growth
