We exploit other animals and cause them unspeakable (literally, natch) pain and agony to pursue our idealistic, airbrushed, lice and vermin free lifestyles.
We do the same to other people too, so we can have our cheap food, bikes, clothes and consumer goods.
That doesn't get mentioned as much, obviously. It might upset the kiddies.
And we can't have that.
Accept it and deal with your guilt, or try and change it.
Let's face it, most of us are happy to inflict pain and suffering on other creatures, human and non-human, just so we can buy more pointless, mind-numbing shite that we don't need.
Hats off to the vegans, at least they're willing to acknowledge the issue.
And on that note, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
