Well, how do we educate, without alienating to the point blinders are put on instantly? I think this is key. For all the reported attempts to help others go into a paleo/primal direction, few have met with instant success. People have asked me, how I leaned out. The response wasn't thrilling, most of the time when it came to my explanation of what I went through.

I, admittedly, didn't read much of Mark's post on can we feed the world primally. However, I think (wild guess coming on) if all we had was free roaming animals, it might limit the number of those who are, or would be, in business. I think there's a time, and place for conventionally raising animals, if a facility can't afford to raise it in a sustainable/humane fashion. My hope is, once they've reached a point to where they can do the more humane/optimal route, they'd transition their operation to such.
