Behind the lines: Happy Kreter
Happy Kreter is a long-time friend of mine, and also most likely the first vegan I ever met. At the time I thought it was interesting, and I respected his choice enough to try and be vegan while he was on tour in Halifax. Since then, Happy has been one of my favourite contributors with articles such as “Happy Kreter: Animal Supremacist” and “Who Cares If You’re Vegan?” and city reviews for Vancouver, Portland and Los Angeles. His most recent review of New York City in the fourth issue has me hoping I get to take another bite out of the Big Apple sometime soon.
In one word, why are you vegan?
How long have you been vegan?
Who would win in a fight: Quinoa or Couscous?
Quinoa, no question.
Would you prefer to lead a revolution or to live quietly in the woods?
Quietly in the woods. The revolution is ongoing.
If there is a revolution, will it be televised or a Facebook event?
The new paradigm in Western culture is for things to change gradually. The days of quick and sudden revolution are behind us, at least for the foreseeable future. Things like feminism, lgbt issues, animal rights, racism are all vastly improved in the past 50 years, and this stuff is happening via all types of media.
