Bleurgh! This whole article is so POV it makes me retch! The PETA article in Wiki is a good template for the presentation of material on a contentious group so why not merge this article? Eddie.willers 21:58, 1 September 2005 (UTC)

Removed link: a more detailed explanation[edit]

I removed a link to selectively chosen quotes from Friedrich. The site was part of, a website dedicated to "exposing" the "radical" "anti-consumer movement": mostly what most people in the middle or left would call "pro-consumer" organizations, but with some genuinely radical ones as well. Such a site is not a good source for a balanced selection of Friedrich's views. --Orange Mike 01:54, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

And neither is the extremist organization PETA.--29 February 2008--Susan Nunes —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:32, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Why isn't PETA a good source for quotes from or about Friedrich since he works there? Obviously, those quotes would likely be pro-Friedrich, but they can be balanced by media or other quotes from or about him. Bob98133 (talk) 20:49, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
And what about PETA is extremist? They don't promote the mainstream point of view, but it's also not that far out, either. Djk3 (talk) 22:57, 29 February 2008 (UTC)


Changed Freidrich's title from Dir. Vegan Campaigns to VP of Int'l Grassroots Campaigns.

Works: Added a couple of projects Friedrich worked on at PETA. Embedded link to Veganism in a Nutshell for formatting. Bob98133 12:35, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Removed mention of the Catholic Vegetarian Society[edit]

I removed the statement that Friedrich "serves on the governing board of the Catholic Vegetarian Society", because that organization went defunct some years back. Wideangle (talk) 21:20, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
