Okay... I kid you not - This is an unedited "capture" from this article about the live birthing exhibits at a Nebraska animal "livestock" show.
Now - Exactly what is it that people don't get about the moral dissonance they live under?
Aside from the obvious visual contradiction this article goes on to say "the birthing pavilion is not just an exhibit, but also an educational experience where the public can get a firsthand look at the birthing process of farm animals, which are the $8 billion-plus lifeblood of Nebraska's agricultural."
We all know the "lifeblood" and economic worth of a "food" animal really only happens at the "processing" stage. If animal ag really wanted to demonstrate the monetary value of "deadstock" - They'd invite people to get a firsthand look at that event as well!
So- I'll do Nebraska and all animal ag a favor... Here's the "lifeblood" of the industry and it's sheer utter madness:
Now folks... You all should be very certain we don't "need" to do this - There is no compelling "life or death" - No urgent "us or them" situation here. It is only the frivolous want of tasty sausages that allows these pigs to be slaughtered by the millions... Meanwhile, I wonder and worry to what extreme you all might go to - for your little pound of flesh?
Think about it. This puppy enjoys his life just as much as the piglet... The puppy once grown, may never become as intelligent as the pig - So what in the world is the difference between munching on either?
After you ponder... And come to the consistent conclusion - Go vegan.
