Vegetarianism: Peer pressure 18th century style
Here is a short introductory post to an upcoming blog series on veganism by M. Elias Keller that I'm looking forward to reading: Vegan Reason (Part I) in which he references an older article I wrote on why I stopped eating animals.
"Let’s start with a little vegan trivia. Below is a passage from an autobiography of a very famous person—no doubt you’ve heard of him. The incident in the passage occurred in the late 19th-century, in England, although the person is not British. See if you can guess who wrote it (without Googling)—and in my next entry I’ll reveal the answer and begin my discussion in earnest. "
