Vegan activism and the effectiveness of the abolitionist approach

I have written an essay about animal rights activism; specifically, the behavior of Gary Francione, the law professor who developed the abolitionist approach to animal rights that I've been blogging about for the last few months. I originally planned to host it here on LiveJournal, but it got so long that I moved it to my own web site.

Anyone is welcome to comment here on LiveJournal, but I would appreciate it if the discussion stay focused on the specific issues in the essay, and not on whether veganism itself is a good idea.

As is my long-standing policy to combat spammers, all comments from people who are not on my current LiveJournal friends list are screened. I intend to unscreen all comments that are not spam or obvious trolling, but as I don't spend all day on the computer, comments may not be visible immediately. I will also post a link to the essay publicly on my Facebook and Google+ profiles, where I very rarely delete comments (but again reserve the right to do so).

Here's the link to the essay again: Vegan activism and the effectiveness of the abolitionist approach. Feedback welcomed.
