I was inspired to review the "15 Styles of Distorted Thinking" in light of the so called vegan dietary persuasion. It appears to me that there are two styles of distorted thinking that may apply to the vegan line of thought.

1. Filtering: You take the negative details and magnify them, while filtering out all positive aspects of a situation.

"Filtering" may apply to the idea that eating meat is harmful to human health and the environment plus is inherently cruel to animals. A positive aspect for the earth re including animal products is that the manure is a great fertilizer to replenish the soil when it is managed properly.

2. Polarized Thinking: The hallmark of this distortion is an insistence on dichotomous choices. Things are black or white, good or bad. You tend to perceive everything at the extremes, with very little room for a middle ground.":

Small family mixed farms are more likely to have humane treatment of animals. These kinds of farms may be the "middle ground".
