How many more must die?

meat2If you buy the flesh, the animal was killed specifically for you. Who else is the “beneficiary”?

And you, in buying the flesh, have placed an order for another animal to be slaughtered, for you or the next customer.

Sell stock, restock. Does anyone not understand the rudiments of commerce, everywhere and at all times?

Abandon all vain attempts at justification and ask yourself: “How many more sentient beings must die for my pleasure?”
