“The billions of #cows ( yes, billions)—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 are they? It is now know that cows convey messages to each other via subtle facial expressions, and as reported in The Sunday Times, studies show that “cows have a secret mental life in which they bear grudges, nurture #friendships and become excited over intellectual challenges.” Why should this be surprising? They are sentient just like us. And in their ability to suffer we are the same!!!
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 have 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 cows may be, they are seen as raw materials for #hamburgers 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
