Ever wonder where your shrink wrapped pound of flesh at the grocery store comes from? Do you genuinely appreciate you’ve commodified a living being which experiences pain, suffering, malaise, depression?
A measure of Man’s fate correlates to the humanity we show our animal cousins. It has always been true the more brutal our behavior toward them, the more we brutalize each other. This simple paradigm may hold the key to the mystery of why America is one of the most brutal societies on earth. It also has the most fast food joints and largest factory farms. Is it gun ownership…or hamburger consumption? Yeah, Hitler was a vegetarian, but could there be a connection between TV/Holywood violence, over the barrel video games, and the amount of meat we thoughtlessly consume?
