Examining the world around us through the lens of philosophical Taoism.
I dont think there is anything ethically wrong with eating meat. Humans have eaten meat for thousands of years. Many animals eat meat, and we to are animals. It is our main source of protein. It all depends on where that meat comes from. I know there are farms out there where animals are raised slaughtered humanely. Factory farming is the problem, not meat itself.If only we had politicians willing to better regulate the food industry, along with stricter enforcement.
I chose to be veggie for my health and well being and not that of the animals. I wouldn't send this video to a meat eater and try to influence their thoughts or ways ..but.. I feel that, given this information, in this format, people would eat a LOT less meat. I'm happy that i can watch this knowing that i don't contribute to the suffering or sustain my body on the product of this heartless industry.
I think both of you would get a kick out of this: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/417354/august-02-2012/thought-for-food---usda-meatless-mondays---plant-communication-research
