COWSPIRACY Will F*ck Your Life Up

By on May 22, 2015

I am a hypocrite. I’ve been carnivorous for 31 years. But in the last week since seeing this documentary, I haven’t touched a piece of red meat.

I only get fired up enough to write like this a couple times a year, sadly. It’s the type of fired up that makes you go on a Facebook rant. That’s how this post originally started. I have many thoughts on this documentary, and I don’t want to say too much for risk that you might not watch it yourself, or that I will sound hypocritical or preachy. At this current time, I am a hypocrite. I’ve been carnivorous for 31 years. But in the last week since seeing this documentary, I haven’t touched a piece of red meat. And at the moment, I don’t plan on it.

It’s one thing to not care about putting a bolt through a cow’s head, but it’s a completely different thing to not care about contributing to a practice that will end the world.

A lot of this I “thought” i already was aware of. And I’m definitely late to take action on this one. I feel some guilty hesitation when I eat meat regularly, not because i care *so much* about fluffy animals, but i know it’s really not very good for me anyways, and factory farming is a disgusting process on every level. I have lots of vegan friends but I still love a goddamn hamburger more than you know. It’s one thing to not care about putting a bolt through a cow’s head, but it’s a completely different thing to not care about contributing to a practice that will end the world. A practice that is less sustainable and more destructive than whatever unsustainable and destructive things you commonly hear about.

If every human would stop eating red meat, our climate change and sustainability woes would be cured on a global scale in one instant.

If you generally like the idea of not contributing to the continual rape of the earth and everything in it, you owe it to yourself to become educated on the effects of choosing to consume meat on a regular basis. Side effects include, but are not limited to: the clearing of what’s barely left of the rainforest (down to 20% of its former glory, and being clear-cut at the rate of 1 acre every second), the eradication of multiple species per day, the gradual dying of the oceans, rising sea levels and climate change, letting millions of humans starve while we use their food and water to stuff livestock to the brim.

These are the same rich NWO criminals that have you sucking down cancer sticks, perpetually paying off loans and hospital bills, all the while withholding simple natural remedies to cancer.

If you give two shits about your children and their future, and if they will have one free of rising sea levels causing mass migrations, mass extinctions, climate & water wars – get hip to your habits, and fast. It’s time to lead by example. Agribusiness is the number one most destructive force on the planet’s well being – more than fracking, drilling, transportation, “taking a long shower” – whatever other ‘unsustainable’ activities you will hear about and be instructed against in the media. You won’t hear about it on TV, and “environmentalist organizations” won’t mention it because the financial claws of big business are deep beneath their surface. You won’t hear it discussed in the Presidential debates. These are the same rich NWO criminals that have you sucking down cancer sticks, perpetually paying off loans and hospital bills while withholding simple natural remedies to cancer, to turn a fat profit and keep you clinging to your lifestyle ‘like it’s going out of style’ – and it is.

If you choose to defend the carnivorous lifestyle, that’s great, I eat red meat too, but we need to stop pretending that we aren’t contributing to a practice which is literally ripping out the earth’s lungs and shitting down it’s throat.

Overpopulation is surely the beginning of our demise, but raising, watering and feeding seventy-billion animals is an incredibly wasteful and stupid way to feed 7 billion people… It’s a big business and you’re just the shit on the end of the stick. If you choose to defend the carnivorous lifestyle, that’s great, I eat red meat too, but we need to stop pretending that we aren’t contributing to a practice which is literally ripping out the earth’s lungs and shitting down it’s throat.

Basically, in “Today’s Fantastic World” – if you still smoke cigarettes, you are a f*cking idiot. And if you still eat animals, you are a f*cking asshole.

I’ve stopped being an idiot, but I guess I’m gearing up to wrap my head around what it would take for me to stop being an asshole.
