One thing that really strikes me, and that I and the OP would probably agree, is the disconnect with the animals we eat, for most people. I believe that everyone should be prepared to take a life if they wish to subsist on it. Too many kids eating chicken nuggets who have no idea about the life that was given (if indeed, there is any chicken in it:-) )
I really believe that we need to go backwards before moving forwards, to overcome those disconnects and take our place in the world in a more mindful way. If that means showing kids (and their parents) films like Food Inc or taking them to farms on school trips to see animals being born, living, and even dying, it might just make people think a little about what they eat, and where it comes from. If people realised that they needed to find grass fed, well cared for animals, the prices would come down as demand increased and the feed lots would lose trade. Perhaps some might even convert their contaminated, filthy land and businesses to a more holistic way of animal production.
Perhaps a dream, but I really believe that this primal/paleo/real food movement can change the world, we just need to see ourselves as guerillas, doing all we can to affect change in our own small way, in our localities and with our friends.
There, got that out of my system, have a good day!
Or you can accept that another's turn has to end for yours to continue. And that some day, your turn will be over, and that it will allow another to have theirs. True reverence is the ethical choice, not denial and lies.
As a pure vegan you are directly and indirectly responsible for the loss of more life, both from the plant and animal kingdom, than any pure carnivorous on this planet, just saying…
Hoo boy. And with that, I'm out.IMO Animals possess something humans too often lack: a sense of what really matters in life.
