I was reading someone's contribution wherein they said that as a young person it was easy for him to become vegan but he does not see the same with older people. This was my response: I don't know if age is as much a factor as the person's ability to be humble (Teachable) and empathetic. I believe any reasonable person, once shown what their actions can have on others, will make the change. However, we live in a very selfish narcissistic world where people mostly care about their immediate desires and nothing else hence they don't see vegan ideals as important to them. In their mind you are just trying to make life less enjoyable because they do not care about anyone or anything.
Looking for more on why aren't their more older vegan people joining the vegan movement? has to be expounded quickly to understand why aren't their more carefully or move ahead with discussion.
