How the Insurmountable Problem of Human Nature Affects Us and Our Fellow Earthlings
You’ve probably noticed the increase in numbers of vegans and vegetarians in our society. If you aren’t informed on what their agendas are and what they stand for with their attitude, let me indulge you. It’s is inevitable to change our ways in an instant, as everything we’ve built so far is based on our principles that we’ve established over centuries. The idea of implementing abstinence from meat and meat products is a familiar one, but what would make a person deny itself the pleasures of eating meat and spending money on anything that was to do with food industry? The answer is animal cruelty and our inability to find humane ways to feed our overpopulated specie.
The Absurdity of Animal Cruelty
Since we established our dominant status over other animals on the planet, we started to change how we interact with nature around us and living beings that inhabit this planet. Humans weren’t always carnivores. But we weren’t evolving as vegetarians, so through evolutionary process and a different diet that included meat, our brain became bigger and as a result we became more intelligent over the centuries. And that is totally fine, meat should be implemented into our diet, but over consumption of animal meat is something entirely different.
Nowadays due to the overpopulation of human species, we have gruesome, unimaginable methods of torturing animals for the reason of increasing the effectiveness of gaining meat and resources. And it’s all masqueraded and presented to the average Joe as an unavoidable and as the only way to provide enough quantities of meat so that our species can continue to strive towards our goals. For example, an excellent Brentwood broker who lives his life as every other hardworking man, contributing to our progress as a species with his work, isn’t aware of the origin of the meat on his plate or the letter coat that he wears. And even though he knows that slaughterhouses, dog breeding institutions, and food processing factories aren’t the nicest places on earth, he still contributes to the same industry by working and being a part of it.
What Comes Around Goes Around
What we tend to forget is that all of these animals that are suffering at slaughterhouses, dog shelters, Zoo’s or in labs during experiments are living, breathing creatures and not objects. They are able of experiencing pain just as we are. So the question is not whether we should stop eating meat and using animal products but, can we find more humane ways of providing food and resource for our species? Another problem that over consumption of animal meat and the increase in need for letter jackets and otherwise animal products in our society is the increase of diseases that this industry produces. The only reasonable and humane method of producing animal meat and resources that we need is through science. By replicating tissue, cells, and every part of DNA stream that makes matter and later life, we could have even larger quantities of resources that we need, without inducing harm to animals. Let’s just hope that we can expect this much from science in the future.
