Mass production of meat shows most people have no mercy for the animals in their food chain. And they also seem to be complaining about life. Maybe their dissatisfaction is absorbed through the animals they eat! I am dissatisfied with the injustices of the world too but I am appeased by my own efforts to make it fairer by not turning my back on the causes of the symptoms. In these times people cannot pretend they don’t know that caged hens produce most of the eggs most people eat. Before ordering food at cafes I always ask first and usually the servers haven’t thought about that as they need to ask the chef who usually says ‘no’ without embarrassment and maybe even with slight annoyance for some reason. And it’s all done to save wasting money on unimportant issues like animal suffering and being thrifty. No mercy but I bet they have complaints about their own mistreatment by friends, lovers, family and always ‘the system’. And they support this system not so much by voting but more through their spending. The multinational corporations are factory farming the people’s productivity and consumerism in the same way. And everyone thinks they have free choice despite being brain washed by advertising! Buying factory farmed tortured chicken and declawed and toothless ham is creating a world of suffering and guilt even if people pretend to not notice. Margarine was a ‘food’ invented as a substitute for expensive butter for the soldiers and the poorer workers. What are you eating? I hope it won’t be humble pie when you meet your maker!
