So I noticed a thread in Thinker's Lounge about vegetarianism, where a user talked about their views on eating meat. They talked about how it was an "inherently cruel" process, and yet something they accepted as a necessary evil. While there's not really anything majorly off about this viewpoint, I felt inspired to document my own opinions on the matter.

This comes down to what I call food chain vs food industry. By food chain, I mean the natural way by which carnivores and omnivores (us) all eat the meats of other animals. I have no problems with this. I don't think this is inherently cruel. Perhaps it could be considered so on a broader scale. But nature is sometimes a bit of an ass, we all know that. All species including ourselves have instincts, ways to survive naturally with what they have. So no, eating meat doesn't bother me. But here is where the food industry comes in. As opposed to the natural food chain, the food industry is the system that humans as an intelligent and social species have devised to make this meat easy to find and accessible. In this system, animals are bred and brought up in harsh environments, separated from their natural habitats and parents/offspring, often abused, and their lives are considered to be worth no more than just a number. They are treated as though they exist entirely for humans, without any trace of respect. Here is where I have a problem. It disgusts me, it sickens me, it makes me wish I weren't human. But it happens. I make no excuses for myself nor for any other meat eaters. This is the way we have evolved, and homo sapiens is inherently evil in most cases anyway. End of story.
