The Futility, The Fallout And The Future

The Futility

One reason heard from carnists from time to time for them not wanting to be vegan is the issue that veganism is a pointless venture as literally everything from tyres to mobile phones contain animal products in one form or anotherThe appeal to futility, seems to seem very rational in an individuals head and because of this it can make for a tricky point to come back on when faced with the excuse.   Partly because, there is some truth to the argument.

It is quite easy to point out on the surface that because something is difficult does that mean that we shouldn’t try? Many a carnist would probably say ‘Yes’ anyway, as the seemingly unsurmountable obstacle, is just the perfect excuse not to try.  You could argue that we are talking here about the difference between direct and indirect suffering, which I would say is a better point but still this misses an opportunity for you to drop some truth bombs. And who doesn’t want to do that from time to time.

The Fallout

The tact here is to employ the truth and the truth is always best kept simple.  The truth of the matter is, that due to the very fact that literally billions of land animals are killed each year for the consumption of some humans, the by-products of this practise are in massive supply.  When something is in massive supply the cost is cheap.    This huge supply will drive a demand and the demand will in turn drive the supply.

The Future

As fewer and fewer animals are killed for human consumption the supply of by-products will reduce, as a result the price will increase.  The retail market will reflect this as some companies may attempt to hike up the cost of their items to cover this.  Some established companies may be able to raise prices in order to maintain their modus operandi as change will come at some cost.  New innovative enterprises however  will be able to opt for other materials in order to stay competitive.

Stumbling Towards A vegan World

These materials, from non-animal origin will be a selling point for a growing market which will create demand, which will drive supply, which will reduce cost.  This is the circle that will be followed during each stumbling phase towards a vegan world.  From finding alternatives to direct causes of harm, actually not eating them, to greyer areas covering the likes of the brand choice of a bottle of shampoo or preferred clothing company.  Each time, the moral and ethical truth will eek out a solution, sometimes slowly and sometimes like a landslide.  This will become more and more obvious, more and more in the public eye.  More and more normal and more and more adopted by the masses.

Land Of Hope And Glory – The hidden truth behind UK animal farming.

They Are Here With Us, Not For Us

“In the UK alone we slaughter around one billion land animals every year for meat, dairy and eggs.”​ source – https://www.hsa.org.uk/faqs/general

This is not an animal welfare issue.  This is an animal exploitation issue.

Sometimes, when given examples of how animals are treated whilst being used for our consumption, the tendency of well meaning people moves to the issue of animal welfare.  This does not stop the oppression.  Only the abolition of animal use will stop this.  The welfare of slaves means that there are still slaves.

They Trust Us – We Betray Them

This documentary shows to what extent our choices have led to.  We will hurt, mutilate and murder the most innocent beings on earth for our own taste pleasure without giving a single thought.  These non-human animals are babies and we use their bodies for nothing more than our ‘enjoyment’.  This is not necessary.  We do not need to eat or wear dead animals.

There is a reason we don’t see this.   We don’t like it.  We recognise the injustice.  It goes against our own morals.  Against our own judgement and against our own instinct to protect, rather than inflict needless harm on the innocent.  This industry is built on secrecy fuelled by ignorance.

There is no such thing as ‘Humane Slaughter’

It is one thing to realise that by consuming meat, eggs and dairy, an animal that wanted to live had to die.  It is another thing to bear witness, whilst the actions of your choices are played out in reality.

We all make a powerful choice each and every time we decide to use an animal or not to.  To oppress or liberate.   To live and let live, or kill and eat.  We create the demand or we remove it.  You make that choice every single day.

From this moment on, you can no longer say that you didn’t know.”
– Ed Winters researcher and narrator.

“Minimizing Consumption” by DISL Automatic (Visuals by Vegan Revolution)

A Meaty Issue

There is nothing wrong with enjoying the sensation of eating meat if you have been eating meat all your life.

There are stages in coming off this and there is a reason that alternative meat products are out there.  To be honest these items are processed foods that often contain ‘shit in them’ this ‘shit’ would usually constitute a sugar of some description. While this shit is still shit, I mean nobody wants to eat too much sugar now do they?  But sugar in a plant based sausage is not the issue here, the issue here is that meat sausage is a Type One carcinogenic.

I would ask anybody to take a look at the World Health Organization Report on Red And Processed Meat. [link below]

PLEASE NOTE QUESTION 11 –

11. What types of cancers are linked or associated with eating processed meat?

The IARC Working Group* concluded that eating processed meat causes colorectal cancer. An association with stomach cancer was also seen, but the evidence is not conclusive.

What do you consider as processed meat?

Processed meat refers to meat that has been transformed through salting, curing, fermentation, smoking, or other processes to enhance flavour or improve preservation. Most processed meats contain pork or beef, but processed meats may also contain other red meats, poultry, offal, or meat by-products such as blood.

Examples of processed meat include hot dogs (frankfurters), ham, sausages, corned beef, and biltong or beef jerky as well as canned meat and meat-based preparations and sauces.

FULL ARTICLE – http://www.who.int/features/qa/cancer-red-meat/en/

“Eating processed meat causes colorectal cancer” We give it to our children at school and at home and it’s called ham.

This industry is backed by Government.  Subsided and endorsed.  Promoted.

To my knowledge there is not one dish at my local primary school that is without animal products. This information has been out since 2015. This is still the findings of the W.H.O nearly two years later.

It’s quite a sobering realisation.

*The IARC [International Agency for Research on Cancer] consisted of 22 experts from 10 countries.

The Anthem

With so many to choose from, the beauty of the universe has conspired for this underdog, as it becomes the only choice possible as a soundtrack to cover a topic of such magnitude that is The Purpose Of Life .

Some rose tints, coupled with the lack of having had chance to see the epic accompanying motion picture adventure in time, for quite some time.  May cause some tug on your heart strings, when the real truth of the matter of the epic I allude to, is finally revealed.

Also, the difficulty in not saying ball bag is real, that goes for tea bagged too.

Who knew, really.  I never did.

Life Hacked.

Hanging Off A Label

In our daily lives we attempted to harness all that is within the lasso of words.  We flatten and compact the shapes and forms of existence into structures so that they may be recognisable both to ourselves and to others.  The wonders of the universe easily explained away in the flat two dimensional world of words.

But this is not the limit of words.  They are more than merely descriptions of life, ensuring that we differentiate between petrol and diesel or the days of the week  They have meaning or rather, we give them meaning  and as such they hold a power.  Words have the power to heal and to inspire they also have the  power to destroy, to hurt and to cage.

The words we use are labels for the reality we find ourselves in.  They are not the matter, the object, or the thing, they are merely the tag that we have pinned to it.  The usefulness of this method of labelling is obvious, but what might be less than obvious is the very action of labelling compresses the thing into a simple two dimensional word.  Psychedelic explorer Terence McKenna speaks about this when he says,

Culture replaces authentic feeling with words. As an example of this, imagine an infant lying in its cradle, and the window is open, and into the room comes something, marvelous, mysterious, glittering, shedding light of many colors, movement, sound, a transformative hierophany of integrated perception and the child is enthralled and then the mother comes into the room and she says to the child, “that’s a bird, baby, that’s a bird,” instantly the complex wave of the angel peacock iridescent trans-formative mystery is collapsed, into the word. All mystery is gone, the child learns this is a bird, this is a bird, and by the time we’re five or six years old all the mystery of reality has been carefully tiled over with words. This is a bird, this is a house, this is the sky, and we seal ourselves in within a linguistic shell of dis-empowered perception. – Terence McKenna

The action of  labelling the fantastic, as we are in the habit of doing so, we can easily get into the habit of labelling ourselves.  Collapsing the mystery of what it is to be us, to be you into a label of convenience both for ourselves and for the benefit of others.  “I am this” or “I am that” can become a boundary, it can become our prison.    When we hear the word depression, we can suddenly become the depression.  Depression is a label that can seek to do far more damage than it can ever do for good, specially if it is blindly attached to.  Oftentimes most cases of depression are in fact a reaction to the reality that is presented to us.  It is our natural state rejecting the indoctrination that we are being exposed to.  It is due to our ability possibly to empathise, that the feelings we perceive to be our own may not be so.  As a result of this rejection of the ‘normal’ we seek aid for a condition that has arisen due to our strength to perceive beyond the veil that is pulled over our eyes.  So what happens?  We are labelled as having depression and are subsequently drugged.  As the pain of birth, as the caterpillar transforms within the cocoon, as it is on the cusp of emergence, when the symptoms are at their peak.  It is then that we receive the doctors labelling and subsequent relief.  The strongest of us are put back to sleep to ensure that they can not fulfill their roles as nature had intended.

To label can be to limit, mind your attachments.
