A Thought on Diet

When people ask me why I don’t eat meat, I really think the question is inverted. I think it requires a huge leap of faith (pace Kierkegaard) to devour a corpse and feel it is somehow attractive or beneficial. In short, I’m inclined to ask: “Why WOULD I want to eat meat?” It only tastes tolerable to most people if it’s cooked or spiced. So it’s not naturally attractive….and Big Agribusiness has made it most unpalatable….For instance, just think on pink slime for a moment….
