Who do you trust more?
The people trying to protect animals
the people trying to exploit animals?
Let’s look at the way most people think, not just Vegan Soapbox readers…
“research from the Center for Food Integrity shows most consumers are twice as likely to believe the Humane Society of the United States and People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals over farm organizations when it comes to humane treatment of farm animals.”
“‘The research shows that the closer you are to a profit motivation, the lower your credibility,’ says Charlie Arnot, CEO at CFI.”

The animal movement will succeed despite our small number of activists and our tiny bank accounts. We will succeed because we are not motivated by money. We are motivated by truth, passion, respect, justice, and love.
When the money stops, animal exploiters will quit. They lose the incentive to hurt animals and they will stop hurting animals.
But we are not motivated by money. We cannot be bought. We will never quit. And because of that fact, we will eventually succeed!
