So, OCUK, a section of society, of mostly predominantly white males age 18-50+ - not that it's easy to predict the majority of peoples views on things (not everyone's of course!) About a year ago, I stopped eating meat - I had a couple of slip ups, but nearly cut it all out, I had reduced it alot from 2 years ago..........but now defo given up, in the past month or 2, I've found myself nearly stopping eating any animals products.............just plant based now - the V word, but that seems to trigger people for some reason! I stopped originally due to health reasons but then, I started noticing things, my perception changed, when your not living a 'convenient life' you notice the hypocrisy of society much more readily. So now, its more about stopping the abuse of animals, the suffering billions go through is appalling, it is a mass genocide, just a different species now (I'm sure that will trigger ya average brexit voter ), I also don't think its to strong a word - billions of life forms, farmed, kept in cages, then slaughtered, basically the same as the Nazi holocaust, just killed differently (some would say more 'humanily'), but theres no nice way to end somethings life, that never really lived, it was only fed n watered to grow bigger. Which takes me on the the next thing - the planet cannot sustain this high meat diet modern humans have - its honestly not natural, the past 2 million years of evolution didn't intend daily meat intake for us, our genetic code hasn't changed in 9-10 generations. Suffice to say 90%+ of everything grown, goes to feed suffering animals, that are then killed, and 'we' eat - the unhealthy ones (diseased, cancer riddled etc), get mashed up and put into pet food - (yeah I stopped feeding my dog 'normal' pet food now, not cool filling her belly with tumors - I guess many didn't know this!!) SO - this is just the tip of the ice berg really, I'm expecting some will reply in 'traditional OCUK fashion' start making leftie insults etc . But if you really stop to think about it for a second, it doesn't make sense, eating meat, as a higher evolved life form, on modern day planet earth - obviously its all down to money and convenience why it continues - and were all of a generation bought up on traditional diets (mean n 2 veg mindset) The only way it will change is, when meat becomes too expensive, I reckon in my life time even for meat eaters - the diet will change hugely as it becomes unstainable, more grown crops will go to feed people, its more efficient. Anyways give me your thoughts people, should make for interesting reading!
