Question Title

* 1. Which one of these categories fits you best?

Question Title

* 2. Were you aware that nonhuman animals have an interest in their own continued survival and freedoms, and are capable of feeling pain, pleasure, fear, and other sensations and emotions, just as humans can?

Question Title

* 3. Were you aware that humans enslave, rape (force-breed), confine, steal the babies from, torture, and murder around 60 billion land animals and upwards of 1,000,000,000,000 sea animals each year, for no other reason that we enjoy the taste of their flesh or secretions? (we have no dietary necessity for animal flesh or secretions)

Question Title

* 4. If you could do something right now that would cause some number of animals to be harmed slightly less (animal welfare reforms), but it would mean that there was a chance that in the future you might not be able to stop everyone from harming more and more animals each year (abolition of animal exploitation), would you take that risk?

Question Title

* 5. Were you aware that when people perceive there's been a victory won in animal welfare reforms it leads people to consume more animal substances (animal flesh, animal dairy, eggs, and honey) thereby increasing the number of animals harmed, the length of time they are harmed as well as sometimes increasing the severity of those harms?

Question Title

* 6. Were you aware that the institutional exploiters of animals (factory farms, large businesses that profit from selling flesh, dairy or eggs, etc.) only agree to institute those animal welfare reforms that they would already have made at some future point because those reforms will save them money?

Were you also aware that the institutional exploiters of animals (factory farms, large businesses that profit from selling flesh, dairy or eggs, etc.) offer only token resistance to animal welfare reforms, because if they didn't, the large Animal Organizations (so-called "Animal Rights groups") might then ask for reforms that WOULD hurt their profit margins?

Question Title

* 7. Were you aware that the large Animal Organizations (so-called "Animal Rights groups") refuse to promote the best way to stop people from harming animals (Abolitionist Veganism) as the absolute moral baseline because they're afraid they will lose some money from donations?

Question Title

* 8. Were you aware that the large Animal Organizations (so-called "Animal Rights groups") regularly praise the institutional exploiters of animals (factory farms, large businesses that profit from selling flesh, dairy or eggs, etc.) simply for agreeing to minuscule animal welfare reforms, whether or not those companies even agree to immediately institute the reforms?

Question Title

* 9. Were you aware that the large Animal Organizations (so-called "Animal Rights groups") take in millions of dollars in donations each year, but they spend only a small fraction of that money on programs that actually do anything for animals, and instead commonly pay the top people that run them huge salaries?

Question Title

* 10. If there is a way that you could perform an activity that is completely in line with the stance that animals matter morally and we should not hurt them unnecessarily, and is a powerful way to help animals both in the short term and also leads to the complete abolition of animal exploitation and harm in the long term (Creative Non-Oppresive Vegan Advocacy), would you forgo welfare reforms and engage only in that type of activism?
