This is actually my last blog re posted and changed a wee bit!
I changed the title because the last title seemed in appropriate
At a recent podiatrist appointment: someone I have never met before:
We had the most interesting conversation: hence this blog.
He said he thought that humans were alien to this planet.
I have thought for approximately two decades that we were genetically engineered by E T ‘s : I am joking 😛
He was telling me about a tribe in Africa that spoke to and thanked the animal they were about to kill and I discussed my disgust of our meat industry.
I became a vegetarian in the 1970’s and joined Animal Liberation I would have liked to have stopped eating meat as a child after I found out where meat came from: But the person who gave birth to me bashed me when I refused to eat meat: served the same meal to me for breakfast lunch and tea until I ate it and threatened to have me put in a mental institution for caring about livestock: Something that was quite possible in those days. People were certified insane when families wanted them out of the way!
The husband of one of my staff in 1982 asked me to report that suckie calves were left to die of dehydration and starvation.
The person that I spoke to at the RSPCA called me a liar and a trouble maker: I put something in writing and was ignored: Over the years I have heard many horror stories about the RSPCA
This still happens! I have been informed by people that either work at the abattoirs or visit same that all newborns are left to die of dehydration and starvation. Someone that worked there, told me that the drug companies requested this: and my podiatrist explained to me why he thought this so.
The drug companies harvest the hormones produced from their death.
If there were not so many humans on this planet, factory farming and the abattoirs set up wouldn’t happen.
The meat industry and drug companies are powerful multinationals so the chances of changing this seem slim: yet one of my sociology lecturers pointed out to me that things will change if enough people want this change!
If humans had any sense at all they would have implemented zero population growth long ago.
But as I said in a previous blog, to fit in with the human culture it is necessary to be a mindless automaton: to be successful in supporting the Protestant ethic one must be a sociopath and a narcissist.
I have copped abuse and ridicule for being a vegetarian and told “this is why we grow them!” or “It’s nature”!
To end on a positive note: I am reminded that there are caring people who think beyond what the media tells them.
And now for my own ad 😛
In primary school the class was asked to write an essay entitled “My Wish”
I wrote that I wished people would care more about looking after nature and the planet than money.
Seeing that this is never going to happen in my life time or possibly ever!
I wrote this short story for myself and as sympathetic magick
by Kathleen Schofield (Author)
It threatens the status quo– just remember it’s fiction.
Think I may turn it into a movie: as apparently not many people read these days 😛
But serious you can read a sample for free 😀
