About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Tobias is Blogging Up a Storm!


This piece emphasizes the point that the easier we make it for people to try compassionate foods, the more people will join us.

This piece - Confessions of an Abolitionist - is really fascinating.

What I take from it is that it is very important to try to understand where the other person is coming from. We shouldn't just "try to win an argument," but rather, try to put ourselves in the other person's shoes and see what their motivations are, etc.
