Beschreibung

I'm always struck by the notion that vegetarianism is a political position but eating meat is neutral. You know what I mean? The media are usually afraid to touch the subject (vegetarianism) lest they be promoting a particular position, as if they're NOT promoting a particular position when they represent meat, dairy, and eggs in a favorable light. These are the gatekeepers that decide how issues are presented to the public. As a result, the public accepts the information as gospel and thinks they're making independent food choices - until those darn vegetarians come along and spoil everything. Considering the billions of advertising dollars spent to persuade people to eat animal flesh and secretions, the millions of congressional contributions meant to persuade the government to create policies favorable to the food industry, and the millions of dollars in government subsidies given to the animal exploitation industries - I hate to say it, but we're not even CLOSE to making independent food choices. We're told what to eat every minute of every day.
