God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. Then he made the earth round. . . and laughed and laughed and laughed.

Ukraine grows enough food every year to feed 400 million people. It produces 42% of the world’s sunflower oil, 16% of its maize and 9% of its wheat.

this is so terrifying with this whole food system collapsing. i'd like to avoid it. presumably those 400.000.000 people have to eat something? maybe it's also time to stop breeding animals for eating crops, and start exporting grains and plants to those?

This situation is made more complicated by the fact that they've been redirecting links with a Wikipedia referer to their anti-Wikipedia page rather than the particular other pages being linked to

seems quite reasonable to me that wikipedia don't allow linking to a site for references when the server hosting the site is deliberately configured to redirect links away from what they're referencing. also, the repeated nazi comparisons are cringe hyperbole.

although 70% would prefer to continue consuming dairy, half feel ashamed to order it in public in front of their peers,

Yay! The Arla "research" may be bogus but as a vegan I'm still more than happy to take credit for shutting down cow farming by making carnists feel ashamed.

Heffron claims that having seen how his farm is run, some vegans have even decided to drink the milk his cows produce.

Well, hate to break it to him but as you can't really be vegan and drink cows milk, the story here is just: Random people been drinking cows milk at a farm.

i guess scoby leather has a lower entry barrier for home growing, plus you get nice beverages in the process. apparently less durable than slicing somebody's skin off and dousing it with toxic chemicals but the degradability is arguably a feature too.
