"Donald Watson, the founder of veganism, in 1944 defined veganism as an “anti-oppression politics”. It is against the oppression of nonhuman animals, of human animals, of all oppressions. He defined it in the broadest possible political terms, what I call “total liberation”. Yet, we have reduced veganism from a politics of total liberation to a lifestyle."
