That is a problem of the entourage .Entourage can cause 90 percent of our future, because very few people can self educate.
He started hanging out with the druggie crowd and started looking all messed up and falling apart. One day his mother came to me and asked me why we did not hang out anymore as we were best friends.
In order to understand the very deep life processes we have to know or to see many things to reach that level of awareness of understanding others.
And, for the record, have you ever watched a poisoned ant die? It is a horrible thing. They actually kneel and pray as they die.
Yes, that is why I say there is a philosophy of killing like a lesson we must give up though we never do as referring to humans and their behavior..of taking other human lives.
Yellowjackets, wasps, bees, and other aggressive animals I will kill only if they trying to bite or sting myself or my children. Spiders, I try to save if I can catch them without smashing them.

And then a minute or so later this, felt like a mind met mine, gentle and wise, and said. "How many, slow down and notice what is around them. How many take the time to observe and feel their environments, stop rushing around in stress?
Taking lives of some animals for survival,or as an advanced society that processes meat for food at global scale is ok,but doing this from an awareness acquired by habits of killing without discernment is something else.
Its not just about cessation of eating meat. For the human body, including enamel of our teeth, needs some nutrients that are mainly in liver for example. We need the fatty soluable vitamins, such as E, A, D, and we really need the raw, natural milk and milk products, they're rich in these, if you are trying to be vegan.

Finding your way through this labyrinth of a hellzone, at least in its feel, and having to partake of life for health, is very traumatic to anyone that does not wish to harm a single thing. Even the vegetables seem to scream in pain.
When killing become pleasure we do not speak about humans,anymore, I don't know how to categorize them.
Otherwise, i do not kill anything (don't hunt or fish), but i used to know a guy who would kill animals just to kill them. He'd swerve onto the grass or into another lane to run over a dog (no kidding).
When i was a kid, i put a flag on an ant mound to prevent my dad from mowing over it, under the guise "don't kill my friends."
In industrial nations, the justice system considers a human life "priceless" thus illegalized any form of slavery; i.e., humans cannot be bought for any price.

Would it not make more sense to get your female cat spayed so it does not keep having litters of kittens rather than shoot some elses cat?

I repeated that the difference between taking a life being aware of it and take a life without being aware.
Are you sure about that?
