Thank OP S+F
Edit to add, the actual experience he had is very interesting:
And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like
a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt
like the worst # on earth.
From op source
He had an few moments before when he wanted to not do it, but was young and forced into it, that reminds me of many army children, if only they would
see the same on both sides eh...

Bullfighting is killing an animal for sport and entertainment. Old meat in the fridge is neglecting to use a piece of an animal that was destined to
be slaughtered when it was born. You don't see the difference between the two?
Are you being intentionally myopic to try and prove your point or are you actually that dumb?
Less than 4 hours ago I was in an castle green or grounds in an city in the UK somewhere. There was some lavender growing there I was surprised as
anyone who has witnessed the weather in the UK last 8 weeks, it was n an large, huge pot, but offered protection by an ancient Oak and birch tress
nearby, under their canopies.
Unlike me, as an bit of stress, change, bereavement in my life last couple of months I was very un mindful and just grabbed some, the lovely purple
flower between finger and thumb, broke it off and crushed it and smelled it.
Was bueatiful, very healthy herb and surprised as said.
I did that purely for sensory "entertainment" with no thought for the lavender...
I came home an couple of hours ago, its no secret on here im an Buddhist, I lit some nice himalayan incense, with an mix in it, some lavender.
That lavender was grown and farmed all its life destined to be burned from seed.
That lighting of incense was cultural/dogma/ritual
Can you see the difference lol?
Which lavender was more hard done by?
The wild lavender that was not factory farmed pumped full of pesticides chemicals genes et al etc?
Or the bit of lavender at the bottom of my incense stick that dint burn in my holder as inside it to hold it, that I am about to remove and through
away now its old and put in an fresh one......
What is wise, what is stupid?
There are many very true and wise & famous things written about "fools" "idiots" and being one, not thinking you are one, thinking others are and
where the fool and wisdom really is within that perception.
