...and ovine, caprine, porcine, everythingine. How, I wonder, do they
feel about bees? (I'm not actually mocking vegans; but they do have to
deal with /some/ ethical dilemmas.)
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is against the
"inhumane" practice of fishing, where those darling little fish end up
being snagged on fishermen's hooks.

I think the whole problem is real but foolish. try to look at how nutritional works. we need long lists of "components" from gold to carbon. you must live in your culture. some are more "civilized" and some are more sociable than others. in the past 100 years we have made enormous strides in fighting hunger. NOW COMPLAIN ABOUT NOT BEING HUNGRY. good sense is more important than being for or against meat or industry. how many of you can choose to starve for two or three weeks. how many could stop taking medications which are part of how we do things. I have asperilodosis. nasty fungal infection and I damn sure want to be treated by our magical medical science.
The fact is sense is hard. being stupid is a human card carrying fact of life. anybody can assault "THEM" and "THEY" did it to us. the fact that BOVINE creatures like the great BULLS would kill people in general and it took great men to stop them. BEARS, BOARS, BULLS, and the list goes on. you can forget that we conquered those beasts. and fed millions. the 20th century was more scientifically capable than any other time in history. we cleaned up the diseases. we stopped the heath risks and we made great strides at not being hungry
we invented the soup kitchen. If we did not think about what we did during the great depression, hunger was a way of life.
