Billions of animals ( yes, over 150 billion land animals alone)—each an individual with her own thoughts and worries—will stumble through to the kill floor each year, unless people begin to relate at a far faster rate to who’s on their plate.
Who? It is now known that animals convey messages to each other via subtle facial expressions, and as reported in The Sunday Times, studies show that “animals have a secret mental life in which they bear grudges, nurture friendships and become excited over intellectual challenges.” _
They have a SECRET DEATH, too, because while most of us have been to a mall or a museum, almost no one but migrant workers and meat inspectors has ever visited a slaughterhouse.
The human race, which fancies itself as compassionate, decent, and thoughtful, is engaged in an unjust war against the animal nations. No matter how bright, sensitive, and interested in life animals may be, they are seen as raw materials for food and handbags, steaks and satchels, reduced to the sum of their flesh, blood, and skin.
People claim to abhor cruelty to animals but still eat meat. My guess is that they were thinking primarily of domesticated animals with whom they have direct experience and possibly wildlife. If they saw their favorite dog or cat endure anything even close to what beef cattle experiences, they would probably be outraged. But, as Stalin may have said, one death is a tragedy, a million a statistic. These people are displaying what I consider to be blatant moral relativity while claiming to be ethical.
STOP THE EXPLOITATION OF OTHER SENTIENT BEINGS!
