I feel like most farmers had to be a vegan or a vegetarian. I just couldn’t see them raising chickens or cows and other work animals then turning around and working with them in the fields. Feeding them petting them for days, months, years then turning around eating them. It’s almost like eating your pet or fellow worker. Surely a little chicken had to hate his farmer master mentally saying “fuck you, you ate my cousin.” Then again female cows, pigs and chickens don’t contribute to much work like a mule, ox or horse may. I was having some random thoughts I wanted to put out there. Oh I also feel like you should at least have killed what you eat. If you eat chicken you should at least once in your life have broke the neck of a full grown chicken and plucked its fur, etc. same for cows and pigs. You should have at least went through the process of seeing that blood and all then your perspectives may be different on eating them. Also, I don’t think eating meat is a big evil thing or something. I just think the way we Americans go about doing it is all wrong. I can’t speak for other countries because I don’t know, but I’m sure they’re probably no better.
