‘Vegan Tyrants’ vs. ‘Kind Killers’ !!

12 Dec

     

   

Many western developed countries, rightly accuse many eastern underdeveloped countries ( and the societies ) of illegally capturing, enslaving, torturing animals. They hold these countries guilty, of inhuman behavior and cruelty towards animals and of serious violations of animal rights.

For this, we Asians have to ‘plead guilty’.

But strangely enough, most of us still remain vegans / vegetarians and some are real time animal worshipers !!

What I find even more baffling is, that most of the western thinkers or “judges” from the ‘developed’ world after finishing their “judgement & jury” obligations, simply go home and enjoy / relish, the non-veg delicacies, prepared….. after killing the same poor helpless animals.

Is KILLING better and kinder than the “cruelty & torturing” ? !!

Does “killing”, serve the ’cause’ of the animals, in any way, better ?


Or is it simply “one of…..THOSE…. things”…..a case of unexplained human behavior?

    Many years ago, before vegetarianism became popular, I chose not to eat meat for several reasons, so I cannot present a fair, unbiased opinion of eating animals. There is however a huge difference between killing animals and torturing animals…and I certainly hoe the two are not being put in the same class. My personal belief is that the human race has evolved beyond the need for meat. Having said that, I respect every person’s right to choose whether or not to eat meat. It is and ought to remain a personal choice.

      “My personal belief is that the human race has evolved beyond the need for meat”.

    I once heard someone say “I don’t eat anything with a face.” I say I don’t eat anything with a heart, except artichokes which I love!

    Eating the corpses of animals is repugnant to me. I guess that sort of tells you where I’m at! I became a vegetarian after seeing how a “downer” (which is an animal who is too sick to be herded into the slaughterhouse) is treated. She couldn’t even walk and was left sitting in the hot sun until someone moved her with a forklift. And since then I’ve seen and heard about much worse things which only solidifies my choice! Seeing the terror in the eyes of cattle being herded to the slaughterhouse is gut wrenching. Sir Paul McCartney said, “If slaughter houses had windows everyone would be vegetarian.” Or at least something to that effect. And I agree.

    All I can do is cry when I see the horrendous conditions animals are forced to live in and how they are mistreated. I’m thinking, “God must be weeping in heaven over what man is doing to His creation!

    My husband and I are vegans. For me it is both a health issue and a love of animals issue. Our eating habits here in the US, especially in the southern states of the US, are not understood and we are often peppered with questions about our eating habits. It can be very annoying but I’ve come to realize that a lot of people just feel guilty for not being able to put their hamburgers down and pick up a carrot instead. No wonder why westerners…Americans in particular are so obese. The thing that really confuses me though is when I hear people say that they will only eat “free range” meat…all of these precious creatures come to the same cruel end in the long run.

    Offense towards any creature is bad and killing the animals and then eating, I think should not be done, as far as possible. To remain veg is also good for our health. When it serves two purposes (not killing animals and maintaining our health in tact) then why not to follow this!

    Oh dear. Were you unaware that Americans are hypocrites before all else? We are not accustomed to thinking of ourselves that way, though. Since WWII we have lived in a world of self-congratulatory patriotism, all revved up because we are the best! I grew up that way, and bought into it, at least until I learned that the entire rest of the world does not necessarily live in squalor. Not just Europe, either – Asia, Africa, and South America all have successful nations with thriving economies. This came as a surprise to me – a huge surprise. How strange is that? I am better educated than most, went to the finest schools, read newspapers, tried to stay current. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I do wonder how it just happens that all I knew of Japan was that they folded little fans and wore their shoes too tight… Wait, is that China instead? Which one’s an island???

    Being raised to think we, Americans, are fundamentally “better” because we were fortunate enough to be born on this soil was a difficult concept to shed upon adulthood. It was so intimately engrained in my soul, very difficult to chisel out. I live among the relics of our fight for freedom – the North Bridge, the Lexington Battle Green, the homes of the lowly warriors – their names banished to obscurity at the will of the more moneyed families in Concord and Lexington. What? Hypocrisy even there? Say it’s not so! Isaac Davis’ boyhood home is right up the street.

    It wasn’t hard, for me, to see the other side. It has been harder for others, fooled by news channels so suddenly become propaganda machines, the like of which we’d never tolerate from a “new democracy,” such as we’ve spread throughout the middle east, patting ourselves on the back all the way. We are so proud. We were raised that way and for so many of us that is what we have to show for our lives (and don’t think our government doesn’t know it). We were set up. We were groomed to be true believers, to drink the kool-aid, to defy prosperity, to cough up our children to wars that should never have been in the first place.

    We are ignorant by coercion, perhaps we stay ignorant by choice. How else to go on living in this world beyond repair? How to go to our graves knowing the wrongs perpetrated on our behalf by what looks more and more like a puppet government of our military industrial tycoons?

    If you don’t want to eat meat, it’s fine with me. If you don’t want to kill vegetation and eat it, it’s fine with me. If you don’t want to eat rocks because they have Native American spirits inside of them, it’s fine with me. If you eat dirt, you’re still killing microscopic animals and you’re going to hell.

    We all gotta draw a line somewhere.

      Agreed.

      The important thing is “where” is that “somewhere” and “who” is going to draw that line :

      Easterners, Westerners or the animated animals ?

        Back to square one.

        Now, how about “Karma” and “The day of judgement” ?

        Killing some one is a deed or not ?

        If “deed”, then good or bad, virtue or sin ?

         
      • Bunk Strutts

        February 8, 2015 at 12:23 am

        Karma is an interesting concept, and the expectation of The Day of Judgement keeps a lot of people on the straight and narrow.

        Of course killing someone is a deed. If done in self-defense, or in retribution for a particularly egregious felony, it is justified – neither good nor bad, neither virtue nor sin.

        Now, if you’re referring to killing animals raised for consumption, we have a different argument altogether.

        “Of course killing someone is a deed”.

        When and if it is a deed ( as you have said, and I agree ), then it is only natural that it should be
        accounted for. To be fair to you and me, this is debatable.

        “Now, if you’re referring to killing animals raised for consumption,….”

        This looks interesting.

        Don’t you think by this “…to killing animals raised for consumption,” we are trying to be or trying
        to imitate, the Creator ?
        More so, when we don’t have our “own” seeds / chromosomes to grow / create animals for consumption.
        Don’t you think this is an attempt to “hack” Creator’s account ? Or at least, a breach of “His copy -rights” ? ( Ha…ha )

        The Creator set up the food chain, and we’re certainly a part of it. Go walking shirtless in the woods some summer night without any DEET and see how many things go after you. Aside from cannibalism, I don’t believe eating animals is against God’s plan, because His Script can never be hacked. No one has the code, at least not to my knowlege. 😀

        Man is a product of nature, and nature kills for sustenance, often indiscriminately.

        ———————-

        The comment by “ge31” (below) is interesting. Consider that an animal in the wild, both predator and prey, has to fight to survive, protect it’s young, and risks death by starvation, dehydration and disease. They rarely die of old age.

        On the other hand, animals in captivity are fed, watered and groomed, receive medical care, and live longer and healthier lives than their brethren in the bush. Animals raised for food are dispatched quickly with little or no suffering.

        As you said :

        “The Creator set up the food chain, and we’re certainly a part of it……..On the other hand, animals in captivity are fed, watered and groomed, receive medical care, and live longer and healthier lives than their brethren in the bush. Animals raised for food are dispatched quickly with little or no suffering..”

        Don’t you think this is human hypocrisy at its best ?

        “Animals raised for food are dispatched quickly with little or no suffering..”

        A cover-up. This is done, not to help the animal but to justify our unfair treatment and exploitation and certainly not a favour to the animal.

        This propaganda of ‘being nice to the dying animal’ is nothing but a hypocrite’s attempt to show that how kind s/he is in his / her, exploitation of the helpless victims.

        This entire premise is based on this so called “food-chain” which in turn is based on the doctrine of “survival of the fittest”.

        Then the whole idea of ‘Creation By The Creator’ is a sheer waste.
        Are we suggesting that the Creator has created human beings & animals and now He has left us all at each other’s mercy :

        ” OK children I have created you… now you kill each other and eat each other”.
        This does not make Him look very bright and intelligent.

        The Creator has created but He certainly has not left after Creating. Has He ?

        He must have put some kind of a “system in place” related to ’cause and effect’, ‘sin or virtue’, ‘deed and accountability’.

        I refuse to accept that our Creator is a careless Creator, creating without any system and vision !!

    If an animal is going to be killed for meat it is very important to me that the animal has been treated well throughout its life and killed in the most humane way possible. An animal should never have to suffer unneccessarily

      So nice of you to say that.

      But if I were that animal I would like to live and not die, not even a painless / comfortable death, would attract me to die !!

    Not just killing – Taking away a cow’s milk and denying it to her calf too is cruelty . That is why Soya milk scores over cow milk (not to mention that it protects against lactose intolerance).

        for that matter, they give cows steroids and oxytocin hormones, so that they lactate more. These hormones eventually find their way into human body, which is why we are having a spurt of POCD and other diseases in children very early on.
        That is double-cruelty to cows and humans

    I never thought of it that way, it’s nice to hear a fresh perspective. (I’m not a very world conscious person, I’m working on it though). I honestly don’t know how to feel about animals or food. Honestly, I wish humans could just absorb nutrients instead of eating. I find eating to be a tiresome activity! And it almost always leads to a stomach ache (at least in my case)!
