I don't understand the meat eaters argument, "I have to eat to live". I've been a vegetarian for about 20 years. I have loads of energy and am mistaken for a younger man. I absorb and use knowledge. I plan and create. My life is incredibly full. I'm also mellow. When I ate meat, a lot of meat, I had anger problems. I learned to repair what I punched. I don't know if being a vegetarian caused me to relax, but the timing fits.
It's weird that some meat eaters say, "I have respect for the animal I have to eat". To me, that's like saying, "I respect the people I have to murder to satiate my desire".
You can survive without it but that craving is there.

This particular mindset is not synonymous to just foods we eat.
We live in this fictional world that is functioning only because of "willful ignorance".
I also believe this is the reason that many people are suffering from depression, anxiety, and anger.
