I saw this a few weeks ago. Very well done. However, I thought it might not be a good idea to post it on this forum, but anyway...
So, then is it okay to eat meat when the animals are family farm raised? Thats what im getting from this cartoon.
Kind of... you're getting the idea. Let me explain.
Even though I choose not to eat meat, I will never ever tell someone else that they are wrong for doing it.
The thing that I am against (and the cartoon makes the same point) is that factory farming is a function of the greed of large corporations.
It is not in the interests of any person or animal, except the company's shareholders who are far-removed from the actual process and most know nothing of it.
I have seen comments on here before which go something like "if it tastes good and it's cheap I dont care how it came to be in my cheeseburger".
I will just say one thing. Causing animals to suffer needlessly is wrong. That is not a word I use very often, but it is wrong. Sure if you want your cheeseburger you have to kill an animal. Fine. Just make sure it is done in a professional, quick and humaine way and don't make the animal suffer through life so it has characterisitcs which you value (ie. inducing anaemia in calves for veal etc).
It is this reasoning that has made the European Union ban battery hens for egg production (starting at a specified time in the future, I can't remember when, but some countries like Germany are banning it sooner). There is at least one major supermarket which does not sell any non-free range eggs now - a step in the right direction.
Anyway, thanks for reading... I'm not trying to convert anyone. Just my opinion.
