Veganism is not for everyone. This should seem obvious. While animals do have sentience, all of them do, we simply can’t avoid killing in order to continue our own existence. That is the nature of life on earth, it is kill or be killed.
People need high protein diets to function optimally. The low carb, high fat diet has been proven effective for weight loss and health goals, and there’s no way around it. We started out frugivores but became omnivores. The best diet is one of lean, low salt protein and low starch vegetables. That is how athletes and bodybuilders get in shape, abs are made in the kitchen.
It seems that the western man overdoes everything. Instead of increasing the lifespan and quality of life of all people, the industrial revolution just increased disparity between people in the affluent countries and the poor countries. Factory farms are heinous exploitation of the natural world and of sentient creatures. This is a cause everyone should fight for, since everyone eats.
As an ordinary human being, one can say, this doesn’t affect me, I can just go on doing whatever I do. But it does affect you, and you vote all day with the way you spend your money.
The native americans could live on the land and hunt their own food without depleting the environment. They understood animals have souls and feelings too. They still needed protein and vegetables to live a full life. They honored the spirit of the animals and acknowledged their importance in the ecosystem. Why is western man so callous?
Capitalism really appeals to lowest common denominator. Appealing to man’s lowest most selfish inclinations works, because man is fallen and corrupt. Europeans have higher standards of food purity because they are more traditional. Greed is not good.
America is really living high and mighty at the expense of the rest of the world, and poor third world nations are following our lead. It seems like this is all one con artist’s scheme to depopulate the human race. There has to be a moral consciousness if anything is going to change. We shouldn’t let the top 1% win and live like a leech of our suffering hides. Educate the masses, especially the young, and there will be less people suffering and dying young. Life seems to be problematic to begin with, let’s not make it worse.
If people demanded higher food quality, they’d get it, because merchants want to do whats best for business. If people really stood up for the rights of animals, they’d be treated better. It’s unsettling that primitive aborigines could live without ruining their environment but the american man can’t. It starts with education, and I feel people should care more about health (of themselves and their planet) and less about profit margins.
