Vegan Reich

Vegan Reich were a 1980s American punk band formed by Sean Muttaqi, embracing something similar to a straight edge philosophy (they did not drink/do drugs), but taking it to a more extreme conclusion, ie, advocating the developement of a vegan society, where people that violate the laws of that society could possibly face 'extermination'. Followers of the band where sometimes also involved in the deep ecology movement called Hardline, expressing a rhetoric that seemed to be a strange hybrid of both anarchism and extreme authoritarianism (if you violated someones rights, you could be subject to losing your own). None of their record releases ever dented the Billboard Top 50, and for the time being omnivores the world over continue to sleep safe in their beds at night.
