Don’t tell me: You’ve just discovered our friends the cavemen lived unusually long, happy lives because all they ever ate was plants growing along the paths taken when hunting animals to be also devoured. Day in, day out. And: ground almonds? And … coconut, was it? Cooked paleolithic food? Of course. They sure had time to spend on food, the Iron Men and Women.
And because of them you are healthier and happier than ever before.
The welfare of animals plays an important role in the modern European legislation:
a) For example, it is considered mandatory that pigs have enough living space.
b) Sows are supposed to take care of their litter in special, comfy areas.
c) And if, by sheer coincidence, anything should happen to one of those poor intelligent sweeties, they get a decent, EU conform burial, of course.
So next time a goddamn bloodless vegetarian mentions the poor animals, make sure to have your pics ready to show them the facts of the modern animal farming. You do care about the well-being of the animals you eat in larger quantities, right? And you would try to make your voice heard if you found out some of them, somewhere in less modern and less controlled places are being treated like … shit or similar? You know: wield you purchase power to do away with the bad guys and stuff. Surely you would – vegetarians have no such persuasive powers, it is known.
