Spiders including Nephila clavipes a golden orb-web spider or banana spider
Golden Silk Orb-Weaver (Banana Spider)
People in Madagascar took silk from this type of spider and weaved it into a golden textile. Pretty cool huh? Their silk can be a yellowish-golden color. While some spiders spin a new web everyday, Banana spiders are known to repair damaged parts of the web with their legs that are specialized for weaving.
Well there you go! You said it all right there. Factory farming is a disgusting institution that promotes immeasurable cruelty and environmental destruction.
Now how is eating meat not the actual problem? When you purchase animal products you are essentially telling these companies that you are OK with the terrible things they do.
On a side note protein can be found in grains, beans, legumes, mushrooms, nuts, dark greens, and many other sources. Most of these like beans and greens like spinach and kale are typically dirt cheap. For instance tofu, one of many soy products, costs ~ $2 and you can do like a million things with it.
When people say, “There’s nothing wrong with eating meat itself - what’s wrong is the consequences, or how inhumane the practices were to get the meat!” they’re attempting to abstract animal flesh as a product away from the process required to obtain it - in order to imagine that veganism, or even vegetarianism, is only about the ethical abstinence of the process of eating certain foods, rather than to abstain from certain ways of exploiting animals.
You cannot separate the act of eating meat from the source of meat, or for that matter any other animal product. You cannot do this any more than you can say, “There’s nothing ethically wrong about using a knife - we MADE knives to use them! - so really, when you think about it, the act of stabbing someone innocent against their will isn’t wrong. It’s just the consequences.”
There’s no level of abstraction that creates a logical and cohesive argument against veganism. Accepting the consumption, and other exploitation, of animals into our lifestyles and society is the problem, and by extension, yes, eating meat is the actual problem.
The arguments of “but what about roadkill”, “but what about ‘humane’ farming” only go to prove how desperately some people want to hang on to the idea that animals are objects, not subjects, and that we “as a superior species” are somehow granted divine right over their entire lives. These scenarios are a product of valuing animals no more than we do mere commodities.
if it’s not a matter of life and death, consuming flesh that was procured from an inherently cruel and harmful process is wrong and unconscionable.
let’s also remember the heavy government subsidies that artificially cheapen meat beyond anyone’s comprehension.
all things considered, plant proteins are far far cheaper than any meat.
FUCK THE POLICE. NO JUSTICE. NO PEACE.
Say NO to marine parks!
