The most beautiful and saddening representation of North America that I have ever seen.

Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you’re lucky.
There certainly are humane ways to kill animals. It is humane when the death is fast and painless and the animal doesn’t know it’s coming. On the other hand, there is no humane way to destroy habitat. There is no humane way to plant, grow and harvest shallow-rooted annual mono crops. Every year, billions of animals are killed by tractors, planters, combines and pesticides. Animals are also trapped, shot or poisoned to protect crops in the field. It has been estimated that 20 field mice die for every loaf of bread you eat. And that’s just the field mice. It’s quite likely that a few rabbits, maybe a groundhog or chipmunk, untold numbers of moles and voles, snakes turtles and toads also died for that loaf of bread. And let’s not forget the starlings, pigeons, rats and other “pests” that are poisoned in the silos or warehouses where wheat and other crops are stored. Just because you’re a vegan doesn’t mean animals don’t die so you can eat.
okay. I’ll just sneak attack someone on the street and kill them.. but I shouldn’t be arrested or anything because I did it humanely, right? I’ll make sure it’s fast and painless. And they definitely won’t see it coming.
…yep. that’s logical.
As expressed so eloquently by Ralph Waldo Emerson,
“You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity.”
Go Cruelty Free This Year.
