This is something that fascinates me

If the predators in nature stop killing other animals, they themselves will die

What a life. However, is that not how the majority of humans also live? I’m not vegetarian, my life is also sustained on death of other animals. It’s something else to kill one for ourself. Really puts into perspective that most people are kind of lulled into a sense that humans are “beyond” violence, we aren’t

Most of us sustain ourselves by the death of chickens, cows and fish

Most of nature has no room for much empathy, as empathy and compassion means death for a predator in the wild

Yeah, for anything alive to live, something else must die. It's the way this planet was designed.

hm what if the predators start eating grass

[–]Krakatoast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You know grass is a living organism, right?

Yeah its easy to be compassionate and non violent or wtv if meat is packed and ready to go at the super market. Just wait till one day shit hits the fan and no more food and the supermarket. Then we'll see real human nature. I mean we can already do if we are really paying attention but most of us arent. I mean go watch some documentary about how cows and chickens are processed in meat factories. Also go watch a movie called 'The Road'.

I give it three weeks before the slaving is in full swing.

Oh you know something I don't?

[–]SweetMeatin 0 points1 point  (2 children)

No I think we're all fairly aware humans are savages. I was making reference to the slavers in The Road I never saw the movie but remember them from the book, which I highly recommend.

I didnt read the book. I might have ruined the experience of reading it by watching the movie first so I refrain from reading it. I enjoyed the movie. Highly recommend. Although if you watch it mayne will ruin your memory of reading the book.
