    OT: Thanksgiving Dinner

    Watching this clip really gave me something to think about this Thanksgiving. Caution. Graphic and mind blowing.

    SAMSARA food sequence from Baraka & Samsara on Vimeo.

    Most of that was shot in Asia--we don't allow film crews like that in our meat processing facilities. Is that because ours are a lot worse than that? If you have to ask...

    That's what happens when agriculture is turned into industry: argi- loses -culture, gains -industry.

    Joel Salatin's book "Everything I Want To Do is Illegal" is a great primer on the problems with treating livestock slaughter as industry.

    Puts a closed park into perspective.

    You are what you eat, and a lot of people eat ****.

    One of the reasons I eat very little meat is the horror show that is industrialized meat production. I used to hunt and fish but figured I could do fine with little or no meat and the Mtn Lions needed those deer and elk more than I did.

    And then they make really expensive soap with the fat surgically removed from those fat people. At least that is what "Fight Club" has lead me to believe.

    From talking to people who have worked in those here in the states and the video from WKD, the facilities in the OP's video are much cleaner.

    People are funny. Ignorance is bliss. If it's not in my backyard it's ok. If I don't have to know about it, its someone else's problem.

    I don't care how clean it is. Those people have no souls. Everything that makes them human has been taken from them. They are Drones. Sterile. Disposable. Empty lives. Very sad.

    Yeah, I wasn't trying to say in any way it was somehow "better" or "good".
