While this isn’t a new campaign, it’s still worth a mention: PETA’s Meat is Murder campaign done in New York City showing several volunteers lying naked in giant plastic wrapped meat trays, covered with fake blood.
Those activists wanted to demonstrate that all animals are just like us, are made of flesh, blood, and bones; that animals have the same senses and range of emotions as humans do; and that when you eat meat, you are actually eating a corpse, it’s as simple as that.
This is an amazing powerful activation stunt intended to shock people who take things for granted or choose to ignore it just for their own advantage because they are the “superior creature on earth” with the right to use everything around them at their own advantage (this myth is sadly highly derived from most religious teachings.)
I can never ever follow a religion that doesn’t include animals under its mercy, we’re all equal living creatures sharing the same planet together.
I tried so hard to explain and convince people why going vegetarian is an act of extreme nobility and righteousness, but I seem to never get to them because eating animals is like an incontestable universal truth about life!
BUT YOU A CHOICE NOT TOO, THERE IS AN ALTERNATE OPTION: VEGETARIANISM
I’m sure you’ve all seen couple of films about the truth behind processed meat and it’s not pretty. It’s one of those questionable things that you know about but don’t want to acknowledge:
In factory farms, animals are overcrowded by thousands into disgusting windowless shacks, wire cages, and other captivity systems. These animals will never raise their families, root in the soil, build nests or do anything that is natural and important to them. They won’t even feel the warmth of the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter.
“Yet the farmed animals who are not protected from cruelty are no less intelligent or capable of feeling pain than are the dogs and cats we cherish as our companions. They are inquisitive, interesting individuals who value their lives, solve problems and experience fear and pain.”
Admit it and do something about it: the meat industry is really inhumane, not just from the suffering it causes to these poor animals, but also from a philosophical / ethical point of view, it’s just all WRONG.
Think of it that way: next time you look at a nice piece of meat and imagining how tasty it is, think what if it was a human flesh, would you still eat it or feel disgusted? Flesh is flesh, meat is meat, and in all cases it’s wrong because it’s murder.
