Nil Zacharias: Humane Meat Is the Solution to What, Again?

Posted on: June 23, 2011

I stumbled upon this article on HuffPost Green while clicking through various vegan postings on Twitter.  I think this paragraph sums up my feelings perfectly!

“No one can deny that it’s better to be less cruel in the ways we confine and kill animals (if we are going to kill and eat them anyway), but if we’re interested in long-term change, we can’t look at killing with kindness or gratitude as a solution in itself, when a huge part of the problem is over-consumption and the ubiquitous nature of animal products. Of course, it’s nobody’s business what someone chooses to buy or eat. Further, we cannot ignore socio-economic factors that influence people’s consumption choices in any discussion about what’s better for animals or the planet. The ability to make better choices obviously assumes that one has the privilege to choose in the first place. But if we want to spend our precious time, energy and dollars to help farm animals, the simplest thing one can do is realize that we don’t need to consume animal products to live healthy and happy lives.”
