Czech Vegan Philosopher – Martin Zeman, Czech Republic

Becoming vegan is a choice I am able to make.  
In the past, people in Czech Republic couldn’t really make those choices because of the scarcity of so many things but today we have developed a very competitive country.
The old regime is recent and people still remember that and so whenever there are ways or rules that seem impossible we will find a way through it.  
We have the freedom to study and the freedom to travel.  
Being a vegan was a choice I made about a year ago but I was thinking about quitting eating meat for a long time.  The final step was the inspiration from Joaquin Phoenix and the movie ‘Earthlings.’
It was narrated by Joaquin Phoenix and it shows the brutal truth about the food industry and that kind of made me do the next step and quit eating all animal products– meat, dairy products, eggs.
The pure reason behind my being vegan is ethical for me. My selection of food doesn’t involve cruelty in killing animals.  There are other options out there of what to eat and I can replace everything.  I just feel better.
