Abolitionism in a Nutshell

Gary Francione notes four main problems with welfarism:

It helps animals little, if at all.
It makes the public feel better about the exploitation.
It does nothing to eradicate the property status of animals (which is key to actually helping animals in legal and social ways).
It's a zero sum game - every second spent could be spent on vegan education - which does help.

Francione's position has underlined this for years, and for a long time this was ignored, as before the internet the big animal groups ruled the movement. Now this knowledge is becoming commonly knounderstood, local grassroots groups are free to pursue the most effective animal advocacy of all; vegan education.
