Factory farmed people eat factory farmed meat

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!

Nutritionally, love Peter

    A lot of truth in this but I’m not sure about your use of the word ‘everyone’. Personally, although as I may have said before, my relationship with god is one of faith and doubt, I’m sure I will always feel humble in his presence even when I pretend not to. You sound slightly judgmental, maybe rightly so. If you know you’re doing right you have the right to feel good about yourself. I’ll try not to be envious. I don’t eat meat myself these days but I am certainly not perfect either. I think knowing that is a great starting point.

    Leads me to continue thinking, some people (not everyone) fall into the kind of relationships they think are the norm as they grow up, usually in a family. It can also be unfortunate that some people learn bad eating habits too through their family, usually parents I guess. It’s taken me a lot of trial and error with my health to find what makes me feel healthy. And to be told by a professional that stress can be reduced by finding out what you want. This was not something that had resulted in coming naturally to me. I plan to teach that to my kids. As you once said to me yourself in a message, Peter, mistakes are for further learning… or words to that effect. I imagine you’d make a good teacher…then I think you already are one. Yes I’ve done my bit there in schools. Now I’m creating my own little system at home… or trying anyway.

    The way humanity is engaging with the rest of nature and Earth is certainly completely out of sorts. This world has enough food right now to feed every single man, woman and child ten times over. The difficulty we have of course is that we grow this food to feed livestock. People seem to want their meat like it is some basic human right. One day, not too far away, meat will once again become a rare luxury. Nature is a living organism in constant flux and humans are only a transient, vulnerable and fragile part of it. Without deep thought about how we treat this Earth, our common treasury, we will surely perish. Our current systems aren’t working at all.

    Bless you, Dear Peter, for standing up for what’s right, even though it is an unpopular view.

    Oh I agree the stress hormones alone released by the animal has got to be doing something to the human body and soul.

    You would like Minneapolis. Too bad you can never stay too long when touring.

    I have stopped eating meat for that very reason!
    P.S. I would really like to send you a copy of my band’s demo.
    Is that possible?
    Thanks

    It’s so easy to become lazy and complacent, subconsciously controlled by the mainstream. We need to use our heads and hearts, be independent and strong- even if it’s not convenient. The more people who live in a state of awareness the more the world changes. And it is all one- how we treat animals, how we treat ourselves, how we treat others. The world is beautiful and strange, and sensitivity to it is rewarding (I could be describing your music here). One more thing: if you play in Dallas again (saw a Church gig at Sons Of Hermann Hall last night), you should try Spiral Diner- all vegan, 100% cruelty free- for pre or post gig feasting. It’s brilliant.
