Food For Thought


If slaughterhouses had glass walls the whole world would be vegetarian. ~Linda McCartney

i wonder... i'm quite certain there would be protests against glass walls rather than against the killing.

Art and Poetry said...

This is true! I am a vegetarian

Diana Evans said...

oh this is so true...and Polona has an interesting point...humans can be focused on the wrong stuff....

Devika said...

I can't imagine a glass walled slaughter house...nor can I be a vegetarian for the implied reason..

I am a pucca non-vegetarian ---just can't help! :)

A dilemmic quote, :)

wishes,
devika

What a visual that quote conjers up. Awful.

Polona does have a good point of people "missing the point!"

Janice Thomson said...

Wish it were so - I shudder to think of all that killing...I'm vegan too.

humanobserver said...

A highly thought-provoking quote...

Princess Haiku said...

True.

polona- you make a valid point.

A&P- good for you!

diana- ditto.

devika- me either. I've been a vegetarian, but am not now. I recall a restaurant (hamburger joint) years ago back east, that had sides of beef hanging and you could see them through the glass as you waited to order. I was vegetarian at the time and really affected me. And it still would if I saw it.

lolo- yes it does!

janice- way to go. That's not easy to do for some.

humanO- it worked... :0

PHaiku- thanks for stopping by.

Very true for the majority of Americans.

magiceye said...

agree with polona

and one should remember the old adage of one man's food is another man's poison!

Stephen Bess said...

Funny what we will accept if it is packaged a certain way.

Marc said...

I love animals :-)

Noemi Rochelle D said...

Thank you for the comment about my illustraton on the blog. :)

raindog said...

hmmm ... i'd better stay out of this one. :) ... but it's probably a fairly accurate prediction.

Cergie said...

I don't know if it would be really so. I read that we use to consider that animals for food are not such as pets. In France for instance we eat rabbit.
(I don't. I'm almost vegetarian)

get zapped said...

peter- I hope not the majority....

magiceye- you said it!

bess- very good point.

marc- me too :)

noemi- you're welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

raindog- you've made me curious...

cergie- It would make an interesting study, wouldn't it?

soulbrush said...

oh my god so true, being a vegetarian myself.
