I used to wonder where the low level Nazis came from; you know, the people who herded the Jews onto 'cattle cars', and the others who guarded them
in the concentration camps, and those who knowingly ordered other humans into the showers filled with poisonous gas, and combed the bodies afterwards
for jewelry and gold fillings.
Now I know. Banality of evil, and horror, indeed.
In this one thread, I've seen extreme jumping to conclusions combined with stark kneejerk hatred for other lifestyles; (that I was a vegan trying to
force-convert all the meat eaters to it) all the way to an incredibly enlightened and enlightening series of posts by truly informed and thoughtful
Not ONCE did a meat eater think to cheer on the vegans as someone who wouldn't be competing with them for flesh-based food, thus lowering the cost of
their own choices. Or realize that pointing out the abuses in a factory farming world might just also go far to eliminate the poisons both chemical
and biohormonal, in the profit-based food they ingest.
And only a few seem sentient enough to realize that ingesting the flesh of an animal kept in less than optimal conditions might actually have an
effect on themselves, also. I have to wonder, though, why so many felt the need to chime in that THEY, for one, only buy locally grown and humanely
processed meat; not like all those other people getting their billions of pounds of meat from the grocers. Or that yes, they go hunting, but only
shoot 'calm' animals, and quickly at that.
Hopefully, the technology of 3-D printing will over time make the whole issue moot.
