Moby Says Vegan Foodies are Becoming More Tolerant

In a new interview with the NY Times, Moby discusses what he perceives as an increasing level of tolerance when it comes to vegan and non-vegan relations. Some choice quotes:

“If we go back 25 years, there was a lot more intolerance in the vegan world,” Moby said. “There was a lot more militant us-and-them approach. And that, to a large extent, seems to have fallen by the wayside, both from a vegan perspective and from the non-vegan perspective. Vegans are perfectly happy now, for the most part, to hang out with people who don’t agree with them 100 percent And maybe one or two nights a week, carnivores seem pretty happy to go to a vegetarian restaurant.”

“When you’re 18, that means throwing fake blood on people wearing fur,” he said. “And when you’re 40, it means opening a really nice vegan restaurant with great food, and being tolerant and welcoming, and not judging people even if they disagree with you.”

The musician goes on to credit the amazing vegan restaurants, cookbooks, and other sources of education that have awakened the movement to an entirely new segment of the population. Of course, being a vegan is something many take beyond the act of eating, but from a food angle – Moby sees progress.
