>tfw you realize they've tricked us into systematically torturing and murdering animals, mass-murdering unborn babies like a normal daily event, and seeing the world as a plaything to be twisted and deconstructed to build us more toys to play with

SPIEGEL: Obviously, you see a world movement -- this is the way you, too, have expressed it -- that either is bringing about an absolutely technical state or has done so already.

Heidegger: That's right.

SPIEGEL: Fine. Now the question naturally arises: Can the individual man in any way still influence this web of fateful circumstance? Or, indeed, can philosophy influence it? Or can both together influence it, insofar as philosophy guides the individual, or several individuals, to a determined action?

Heidegger: If I may answer briefly, and perhaps clumsily, but after long reflection: philosophy will be unable to effect any immediate change in the current state of the world. This is true not only of philosophy but of all purely human reflection and endeavor. Only a god can save us.

Why do most vegans decry this and not realize that the alternative to the supposed cruelty of industrial food production is the death of billions of humans and consequent death of billions and billions of livestock if the system collapsed? Many balk at this, while the rest tend to offer the "solution" of increased intensive farming to give everyone their own Cruelty Free™ onions bean based diet (ignoring what to do with the livestock if they're not to be eaten [mass sterilization and a cushioned death?]) which would lead to global desertification in a generation or less.

The few that accept the mass deaths of humans and animals resulting in the breakdown of civilization don't seem to realize that their vegan lifestyle would hence be unsustainable in the fallout world.

Source for what? Think about the proposition for a second and you'd come to the conclusion that sustaining billions on a vegan diet is physically impossible on this planet: 70% of all agricultural land is devoted to pasturage, are you going to turn the thin, acidic soil of mountains into fertile vegetable producing plots? How do you maintain such a vast system of intensive agriculture without modern, industrial manure?

This has to happen because the world cannot naturally sustain the current population of humans. It's a hard fact to swallow.

animals eat plants. If humans eat animals, then there must be more plants that were grown when eating meat, than when humans would eat only plants. So more farming is neccesary when we eat meat as well as plants. So, your argument is not valid at all.

They don't just "die", they are systematically murdered for no reason other than human pleasure. Vegan diets are totally healthy and the time in which you do your shopping for meat could be used to do shopping for vegan food, so it's not as if going vegan even inconveniences you in the slightest.

I raised chickens, started 2 years ago or so. My first chicks hatched not too long ago either. Among them were males. I had heard on chicken raising forums that you absolutely had to limit how many roosters you kept in a very steep ratio to how many hens you had. Sure, i "read" it. But the love and pride of seeing the little chicks peck around and sleep under their mama had convinced me, nothing else mattered. This was certainly a little slice of heaven in my backyard.

So months passed, and the males that were just tiny scared balls of down undistinguishable from the females has grown into large proud birds that stood up tall and impressive. I would have kept on being proud if I did not see what I saw that one day. I was out changing the water tanks and heard loud squawking. No doubt a young rooster was mating again. Peering a little closer there seemed to be a commotion. Several of my young roosters were carefully surrounding another rooster that was mounting a hen. The rooster bit down on the hens neck and did what he had to do. When he was finished, he let the hen go. Thinking this was over, the hen got up to her feet and tried to get to safety, but another rooster that was watching did not let her. The other one quickly bit down upon the escaping hen and mounted it in the same fashion as the previous. A feeling built up within me as the water spilled over the tank and onto my feet. Surely this would end soon?

Nope. Not only did every rooster have their turn, some went twice. And to make matters worse, this was not the first time this happened. The hens back was red, bare, pockmarked, and no feathers were left.

I still had love for my animals. So I shooed them and uneasily looked online for an answer. Perhaps others had found a solution to this problem without getting rid of "excess" roosters. But every answer I found was simple. Get rid of them. And how, not specified.

I dropped this into the back of my mind until another day, when I was out hanging laundry, and the same exact scene began to unfold. A hen was running frantically, and a rooster caught up and mounted her. To my horror, I saw that the other roosters actually helped keep the hen in place by dragging her down by the neck.
My vision turned black. I picked up my varmint rifle, my 10/22, and sent one flying at a spectating rooster. It went through his eyes, and he flopped frantically on the ground. In utter disgust at how this monster kept trying to live despite my commands to die, I slammed down a brick on its body and it moved no more.
The orgy had been interupted, and thr other birds had retreated, oblivious to what had happened but unsure enough to be cautious. I put out my softest chirping sounds that I made when pouring out food, and when the roosters got close, I bent down, and snatched one up by the neck, and twisted. It was easier than I thought. I had built up quite some strength working for my father, and so I tossed the lifeless carcass to the ground.

What the fuck am I supposed to do? I don't like how inhumanely they treat the animals, I want them to kill them with a cattle gun or some other device that kills them as fast and as painlessly as possible, while also letting them graze so they're not stuck in those horrible cages where their limbs atrophy. But I just can't imagine a life without eating meat, it's one of the few pleasures I have and humans have evolved to eat it. This is like asking a wolf to switch to a vegetarian diet, his species has adapted for thousands of years to eat meat you can't just switch like that and not expect serious side effects to his health.

This study claims that if the US went vegan the food production would increase by 23% and would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the downside being that it would lead to nutritional deficiencies, which I'm sure could be rectified with vitamins and the like.

Personally, even if I agreed with your argument, which I don't, I suffer from severe migraines that prevent me from working (the migraines auras I get make me lose my vision), the only cure for which has been to switch to a keto, high meat diet. If I eat too many carbs, I'm out of commission. Meat substitutes, even high protein ones, even if they are healthy in every other way, are too high in carbs for me to eat. That's just one situation with all else being equal. Don't pretend you have the high ground just because maybe being vegan works for you. It doesn't work for everyone.

>> No.13293227

Theres not much more to say, and my creative train was disrupted by the post limit. Just that sometimes, I look at my hens, now with only two roosters left over to watch them. They don't even mate as much as before. I think more roosters meant more agitation, meaning more fighting and mating, and more pain for the hens. One of the hens still cant walk properly anymore. The damage was permanent. I see her limp towards me happily when I spread out scratch and grains, and think back to myself when the chicks had just hatched. There was so much care put into each egg, each chick. And now, I only take care of the food water and bedding. The eggs, I could not care less. I dont eat omelets anymore.

There is nothing precious or innocent about the propagation of life. To control it means you witness it daily, and that can surprise people by being too much.

I still remember how good it felt to snatch up those roosters by the necks. They would claw at my arm and flap wildly, kicking up dust everywhere, fighting for their life. But just like how the hens they raped were powerless, so were the roosters under my enraged grip. I didn't just choke them, i tore off their heads. I would do it again if I have to, and the scary thing is is that it does not bring me shame, to enact violence upon a beast. It was a totally rational culling.

It is a documented fact. While a vegan diet will cause you to be deficient in B12, Calcium, and Iron, all of these things can be easily remedied by taking vitamins or eating vegan foods that are specifically made to include these nutrients.

I don't know about chickens, but turkeys definitely do. My dad and I once brought 3 live turkeys home for Thanksgiving. We kept them in our small garage which is around 150 square feet. They were in large boxes and would occasionally come out and then go back inside. You could pet them and they would just remain still and not do anything. I thought my father was going to butcher them in another area but lo and behold he prepared the table right there in the garage. When he grabbed the first turkey the others went into a small panic, nothing major. He then cut its head off with a cleaver and the other two started screeching. GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE. They both somehow got into a corner of the garage on the very top of the garage door frame (don't know how they climbed up there). I was like alright well let's just grab those two, kill them, and then it'll be over. NOPE. He decides to clean the turkey after killing it with the other two sitting in the corner of the garage enjoying the show with nowhere to go. He grabbed the other after a while and one last poor sucker was left to watch his relative suffer. When the two turkeys got into that corner of the garage, they NEVER moved an inch. I had to shoo them down with a broom. Fuck turkeys though they smell like shit.

I am pretty sure that most of the meat industry produces superfluity. Hungry poor billions hardly taste any. What really keeps them alive is agricultural practices and genetically modified strains (and the global transportation systems, and the global economy, and so on, and so on).

That no one can implement a planned reduction is your complete straw man argument. The real problem is that it would be against every market force, as long as there are non-vegetarian people, and would cause a lot of fun instead of achieving the stated goal.

What could help is personal involvement in killing, and reintroduction of seemingly useless rituals, as observed at hunts or sacrifices (even modern hunters don't go and shoot everything that moves straight away). Then there will be a proper translation for “Itadakimas!”

Mass-integration of moral outrage over things like the meat industry serve to both feed and assuage the bourgeois moral sensibilities of post-protestant Western society. Think of how corporations integrate popular social movements into their PR strategies, and then subsequently further reinforce these trends in society. By incorporating this outrage into the social movements of capital, we see any means of critical discourse either for or against the consumption of meat transmogrified into ones that can be utilized for economic purposes.

apparently this is neocon but it's a point

Chicks are cute and it's gross and emotionally affecting to let them fall into a whirring contraption, but this treatment of animals as something pure and innocent and in need of saving is condescending and arrogant. The self-loathing, human-deprecating, masochistic vegan pathology is based in the idea that we are truly superior and separate from animals, and thus must conduct ourselves better than they. This is at least in part why it fails - all of the arguments are sentimental, emotional, based in showing affecting and extreme images. But the animals themselves are just as brutal as us, we simply involve more steps and machines. there are plenty of reasons to change the way we raise animals and produce animal products - "the poor widdle baby animals cant take care of themselves!" is not one. it's immature, puerile neoliberal sanctimony at worst and compassion-based intestinal sensitivity at best.

Also, almonds are completely unnecessary. I'll tell you what I personally eat and anyone who is intellectually moral would follow. So, for today (I'll use the dry measurements but specify the method of cooking; also a low-acvitiy day, i.e. not working out):
150g rolled oats (boiled), ~30g raisins, 5g flaxseed and 15g chia seeds, ~20g carob powder
100g black beans (boiled), 100g buckwheat (boiled), 10g sunflower seeds, after which I'll go out and eat about 300g of raspberries from my backyard
100g whole wheat berries (boiled), 10g sunflower seeds
For vitamin A you need about 300g of either sweet potato or carrots, which will give you what's necessary for at least 3 days (it's fat-soluble, so you store it in your body).
You may possibly need 2 supplements on a vegan/strictly vegetarian diet:
1) B12; produced by soil bacteria; assuming that you're not consuming plenty of fresh vegetables that are cleaned with unchlorinated water or don't drink water from a natural stream, you'll need a 1000/2000 micrograms pill once or twice a week; for about 18 euros you can get about a year's supply for THREE people
2) iodine; if you don't have access to sea vegetables you can consume a few grams of iodized salt, but you often get that with binding agents and other bullshit, so personally I choose an iodine supplement (2 ingredients: algae powder and a polysaccharide)
And that's it, depending on your age (the younger the better) you're most likely set for life, saying goodbye to diet-related diseases, and to living a cunt's lifestyle that supports animal torture and murder.

Makes perfect sense let's start the morning with these incredibly calorie-dense food items sourced from animals and animal fats: eggs, butter, bacon.

After eating a heart attack worth of fat and proteins what do we do?
Sit in a car to drive to work of course!
What do we do at work?
Sit on our ass some more!

Lunchtime! Let's again eat incredibly calorie-dense food items to energize us for 6 more hours of sitting on our ass!
Maybe meatballs, and a butter+milk+cheese based sauce and pasta? Perfect for sitting!

After sitting for 6 more hours at work,
We can finally sit at home!
What do we need to energize all that sitting at home? More calorie-dense food items sourced from animals of course!

So let's slaughter 60 billion animals each year! and make sure they lead a lifetime of torture! (rape included of course!)
Just so we can use that abundance of calories to sit on our asses at home, on our way to work, at work, and on our way back!

There's a difference between function and practically. David Haye eats a vegan diet and performs feats I never could, there is no question that he is missing anything from his diet. He also has multiple dietitians and chefs and needlessly restricts himself for performance.

Veganism has only been proven healthier than the typical American diet which is terrible to begin with. Processed meats are unhealthy and factory farming is unethical but that doesn't mean that balanced diet consisting of whole foods is not the healthiest by far. The argument for the immorality of the argument always rests on factory farming as the only method of producing meat. Local free ranged grass-fed meat if eaten responsibly can be better for the environment than veg grown using certain pesticides and shipped across the globe. The animals can also live a very happy life (much better than many humans) up until the point of death which is usually painless. If you argue that any suffering is unjust and they are better to not be born into the world than please tell me your thoughts on antinatalism.

The only rational argument for all forms of meat-eating to be categorically bad would be if you were to prescribe to Buddhist/Hindu traditions. If so the argument is not a rational one but I support you for having it, they do, however still drink milk.

You seem to be believing a common misconception, namely that a vegan diet has to be controlled by various team of dietitians and hourly blood-tests or else your brain starts eating itself. I've described what a vegan diet can consist of here ( >>13295658 ), and that's even WITHOUT any greens (I personally don't like the taste), which can be a major source of (vegan) nutrition.
After you read that, you can consider yourself informed in about 99% of human nutrition.
>Veganism has only been proven healthier than the typical American diet which is terrible to begin with.
Entirely false, those on a vegan see statistically significant positive health outcomes compared to omnivores, pescatarians, vegetarians, lacto-ovo-vegetarians and low-carb-ers, you can check virtually any major randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses on pubmed for that.

Common anti-vegan memes:
completely debunked, phytic acid is associetad in the latest studies with better bone mineral density; it also stimulates activity of Natural Killer cells (those fellers that kill cancer)
beans/lentils (the biggest source of lectins) are literally the food that has the highest association with best health outcome (i.e. not dying and living healthily);
>pre-formed DHA
considered until pretty recently to be THE biggest deal with vegan diets who don't include pre-formed algae DHA (fish don't make DHA, they get it from algae), but randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses show that there's no association between disease-specific or all-cause mortality and not only that, DHA seems to increase the risk of prostate cancer for men. all the DHA humans need is converted accordingly by the liver (your rate of conversion goes up the less pre-formed DHA/EPA you consume)
A few things more to take home:
1) cronometer by default uses the USA's RDA for the nutrients, not a big deal except for calcium, values for which are shamelessly upped by the USDA. you need less than half of that RDA, with some reputable institutions going as low as 450mg as a recommended daily intake. in short, if you don't lose calcium (coffee,chocolate,tea, etc), have a proper diet and exercise accordingly based on your age and sex, your chance of getting osteoporosis is virtually 0
2) their vitamin A numbers may be confusing, so its better to refer to either wikipedia or nutritiondata.self.com for properly converted numbers
3) soak whole grains and beans overnight; also, cook the beans with onions/garlic, as it improves mineral absorbtion

It doesn't matter they're veggies

There are two secrets to veganism.
The first is easy: diversity. Eat EVERYTHING. Veggies are fuckin cheap, an onion is like 5 cents, one carrot is again 5 cents, a potato is like 10 cents, a handful of sesame seeds is like 2 cents, broccoli is like 30 cents a head, muhrooms can be as cheap as two dollars per kilo..
That way you won't have to worry about your zinc or iron or Vit K or protein or anything. If your plate has at least 5 different looking food items, with different consistency, color, and taste, then you're probably good.

Second secret: understanding what veggies are.
Root veggies: anything you eat that's the root. Carrots, Potatoes, Yams, etc. High in starch and calories, these veggies are mostly carbs.
Green veggies: lettuce, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, etc. These are high in fibre, they make u shit good, have low calories, and usually carry iron (dark greens carry iron) and other nutrients.
Seeds and pulses: these are all the types of beans, peas, sesame seeds, flax seeds, lentils, etc.. This is the shit that grows into plantlife when planted, which means they are calorically very dense and full of protein.
Grains: rice, barley, wheat, etc. High in carb
Nuts and fruits: great as supplements and snacks. Nuts are high in proteins and fats, fruits are high in natural sugars.

And remember: every food item has fat, carbs, and protein. If it didn't it couldn't be a living thing.
It's what it has a most of that we want to look into - rice has protein but we treat it as a carb, for example, because it has very little protein, but a lot of carb.

You must be American, they always seem to talk like princesses living in the palace. Try explaining to anyone in the rest of the world that putting a pot with cereal and water on the stove and returning in 20-30 minutes when it's done is extremely time-consuming. Meat requires at least some cutting in the laziest of recipes. What you compare is not vegan and non-vegan diets, it's processed shit you microwave against actual food. No wonder you don't get it, as even the poor in your country are pushed into buying shit, as opposed to normal situation when they can't afford these value-add products.

or drink plant milk, a majority of which are enriched.
or consume vegemite/marmite
or consume nutritional yeast
there's a few more options, but I forget. all three above options are incredibly easy to do, since you only need a little bit of milk/yeast/marmite to gain all the B12 you need.

>who the fuck eats oats, lentils, and potatoes?
Are you really asking who eats three of the most common staples of human diet throughout history?

oats for breakfast with banana and onions milk and berries or an apple.
(oats ~ 5 cents, one banana ~ fifteen cents, onions milk ~ 5 cents, berries ~ 20 cents frozen, apple ~ 20 cents, total: around $1~$2.

rice with lentils and carrots and spinach and onions and garlic and sesame seeds for lunch
(rice ~ 30 cents, lentils ~ 20 cents, carrots ~ 10 cents, spinach ~ 20 cents, onions ~ 10 cents, garlic ~ 10 cents, sesame seeds ~ 5 cents, total: around $1~$3, depending on how much you buy in bulk)

Potatoes and peppers, and peas and eggplant, mushrooms, cauliflower/broccoli, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and cabbage
(Potatoes ~ $1, peppers ~50cent, eegplant ~$1, muhrooms ~$1, cauliflower/broccoli ~ 50cent, onions ~ 10 cents, tomatoes ~50 cents, cabbage ~20 cents, total: $4~$6.)

At my most conservative, buying in bulk, and avoiding expensive veggies, I was paying around $6 for food per day.

Cheapest (50cents per meal range): onions, carrots, garlic, cabbage, lentils, beans, potatoes, seeds, bananas, oranges, apples, rice, oats
Medium ($2 per meal range): broccoli, muhsrooms, cauliflower, tomatoes, peppers, squash, courgettes, frozen fruits, tofu, chickpeas, peas, beets, radishes, okra
Expensive ($3 and above per meal): shiitake/oyster/non-button mushrooms, asparagus, artichoke, fresh berries, can't think of anything more expensive without getting into "exotic smelly fruit from Asia" category.

For life in big city NY/LDN/SF/etc., adjust prices up by 20% to 50%, depending on availability. (Bananas, for example, are dirt cheap in all cities because there is one monopoly farm that produces it all in Brazil, if I remember correctly)

I was not saying that in relation to city dwellers, I was mentioning a marginal group of people who mostly or entirely sustain themselves with their own crops while at the same time living in areas with unpolluted waters and soils. In the Okinawan study, the people were not suffering from B12-related conditions, although dietary intake was quite low.
Even so, given how cheap and safe it is, only raw vegans would abstain from taking it.

And no, the Okinawans weren't vegan, but they had a very low percentage of calories coming from animal products (1% fish, <1% dairy, <1% eggs, <1% meat).
The Okinawan study is not supposed to make you follow their diet, they themselves were eating that way simply because of post-war conditions. It's supposed to show what the absence of meat cause or contribute to, namely really big reductions in CVD, type 2 diabetes and so on.
On the other hand their diet was deficient in several nutrients which, coupled with the fact that they were also lacking in overall calories, the study reported fertility/lactation problems.

I grow my own eggs and eat my own chicken. I'm from the ozarks so I have a third world pallet that likes lean gamey meat, I prefer game fowl and Guinea hen to factory poultry. I've always experienced the complete irreverenence for life displayed on poultry growing operations from a young age, even human life. The meat processing companies also treat their growers as inanimate investments. The ecology devastation caused by meat is the worst for me, especially when it's so easy to have livestock in a healthy community removed from mammon. Everyone could have their own eggs, but most of you rats are too cucked by homeowners associations to even have the option of keeping livestock, growing crops or even letting the grass grow to seed.

let's say you are protesting a zoo that's keeping a lion in captivity. your efforts are successful, and the zoo agrees to free the lion back into the wild, but there's a catch. they give the lion to you and tell you it's your job to get it back to the wild. it's going to need to eat before you can get it home. how do you ethically get meat for the lion?

the lion is a legitimate carnivore and needs meat to live, unlike humans. so i wouldn't have any problem with feeding it meat. assuming i had enough money and time to actually fulfill your hypothesis, i would source meat that the zoo already had or meat that was freely given or bought and not used for another activity.

futhermore, even if many of the animals in this hypothetical zoo get sick and die as a result of the protesting, it breaks the cycle of capturing and breeding the animals in the first place, which will eventually be more of a good thing than a bad thing

"Only a god can save us" is not a religious message, it's a reference to the fact that without a supreme set of morals that everyone strictly adheres to, human beings will do horrible things.

The "god" can be anything. It's a metaphor for something elevated and metaphysical, like a code of ethics. Even in atheist philosophies on ethics, a god and your code are equal, in the sense that they only exist as ideas people have had. They do not exist in any immanent sense. You cannot visit place and SEE a physical moral code, you an only ever experience the idea.

So, in short, learn to spot a fucking metaphor. Is Heidegger actually an atheist? Eh, maybe, maybe not. But this quote is obviously not in reference to any specific god, but to the notion that human beings need metaphysical guidance to temper their worst impulses.
