What is Veganism?

Veganism is defined by The Vegan Society as, ‘a philosophy and lifestyle that seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation and cruelty of animals for food, clothing or any other purpose, as far as possible and practicable; and, accordingly, it encourages the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, people and the environment. "The word vegan is actually something too natural to be defined. It is a way of life that is as natural as not to be racist, not to usurp the rights of others, not to enslave or kill anyone. Like humans, animals are individuals who can be conscious, socialize, and feel. It is veganism to live in this direction and not to usurp their rights, based on the idea that they are not slaves and things put into service. Although we live in a human-oriented world, we should not see animals as slaves or objects that can be output by changing our perceptions. Veganism is not something about people, it's about not violating the rights of animals. It is their transformation from slave to individual in right status. It is not a eating style, type of diet, trend or something specific to humans. It does not mean that we do something different, but that we stop what we are doing.
