Tracy at Digging Through The Dirt discusses the battle we have with animal exploiters:
“In other words, animal exploiters are in the battle of their lives. They are worried that they will lose their “social license to produce food animals,” that the thought of eating animal flesh will soon be as accepted as smoking a cigarette is today.”
“It is a battle — and one that we will win because we have good on our side. For animal exploiters, it’s all about money. For us, it’s all about animals’ lives.“
Tracy’s article exposes how the factory farming industry is training animal exploiters to tell tall tales about ‘responsible animal husbandry.’ They’re supposed to tell stories about “spending cold nights in your barns with your animals” because “Consumers want to know you are looking after your farm animals just as carefully as you are your family.”
As Tracy put it: “my family members don’t kill other family members.”
The animal exploiters can try to spin it however they want, but they simply can’t get around the fact that they KILL animals. And they KILL animals unnecessarily. Fundamentally, people are uncomfortable with death and killing. There’s no getting over that fact no matter how many tall tales they tell about treating farm animals like pets. In fact, the more farm animals seem like pets, the more distasteful meat will seem.
It’s a no-win situation for the KILLERS. Either treat farm animals like machines and you seem like a monster or treat farm animals like family and then KILL them and you seem like a monster. Animal exploiters should just give up and find a new line of work.
