I have never chosen vegan because I can not understand how it is more ethical to shred one sacred being over another and call myself ethical. Many vegan spiritualist will happily commune with nature and connect to an ancient tree but then go eat a plant. All beings are sacred. Just because we find it easier to relate to those that are animal with blood and vocal chords does not mean that we are not causing pain and distress to other forms of beings.
Practice your compassion to all beings and honour the sacred relationship we are all involved with not the just our relationship with animals
The Part 1 question will be an essay on a given topic. A set of notes on the topic will be provided, and will include three bullet points. Candidates will be asked to select two of the bullet points and to base their essay on those two points . They should not attempt to discuss more than two of the points, as this will lead to the essay being less developed than required. Candidates will also be asked to explain which of the two points is more important in a given respect, and to give reasons for their opinion.
Candidates will be given three short opinions related to the bullet points. They may, if they wish, use these to help develop their essay, but they should do so in their own words, as far as possible .
