On a New Level of Absurdity in the Slaughter Business
JUNE 20, 2009
Bea sent me a link to an article in Gourmet called " Humane Slaughterhouses ," by Rebecca Marx, that is absurd. They believe you can take a life that doesn't want to be taken in a humane way, and I don't agree. And when that happens, you know what direction you're headed: the justification of taking the lives of sentient nonhumans to please the palates of humans. And perhaps that "better" will distract the reader from the undeniable fact of the unjust slaughter.
