It thinks itself of a somewhat superior creature but in reality it is no more than a cabbage in desperation to consume meat.

Also, grain used in feeding cattle is not suitable for human consumption.
Meat-eaters are harmful to the environment, not vegans. They are the main cause of world hunger by wasting land to feed overbred cows who will become tortured and killed. Meat is an inefficient resource, and also requires a lot of oil in production. Don't say veganism is bad for the environment.
God warned against animal cruelty, and preched compassion. Many references made to meat were metaphoric or not referring to flesh. Most scholars believe Jesus didn't even eat fish, so don't use the pseudo-Christian argument either.
Finally, b12 and protein can be obtained from plants. Beans, nuts, and seeds are rich in protein, and many other plant based foods contain it as well. Seaweed, yeast, and raw organic foods have b12, and it also can be grown as a bacteria.
Debeaking, beating, tail-docking, ear-clipping, confinement, etc. aren't humane. There's no excuse for not being vegan.
The arguments against veganism are very ignorant.
The word vegan means compassion.
ALL humans are herbivore by NATURE's design. Meat eating began in limited circumstances and was not a part of the 'hunter' tradition but rather was introduced by ancient temple priests to traumatize and condition children into becoming violence-enabled soldiers and police for the court.
This type of conditioning is called 'trauma-based conditioning'. The very ancient and horrific circumstances that introduced meat-eating in ancient temple cultures around the world have been intentionally obscured by today's miltiaristic societies, including the secret police run states of Europe and the US.
Biological proof of these facts are easy to find including the one that NO creature EVER violates its natural biological niche behaviors unless forced to do so.

We don't need more 'vegans' we need more people to stop sucking on the corporate disinformation machine and awaken to their own design imperatives as scripted by nature. And then to live accordingly as human herbivores.
This is an ecological issue and it is at the crux of every stupidty underlying and driving our arrogant, elitist, ignorant and war-mongoring society.
If you are not living as a human herbivore, you are an ecological moron.
