Big farms will continue to grow and their methods will become much less humane. The problem is we have a MASSIVE population on earth right now being supported by cereal crops that saved us all and made civilization as we know it. Nature is being completely destroyed just by growing those cereal crops. When you buy soy, rice, wheat, you are supporting the destruction of nature, the destruction of soil, the poisoning and murder of wild animals. You can only regain control over that when you understand the effect of our very existence on our natural surroundings. People need to take the risk of providing only for themselves and those around them with small farms. We have the technology, knowledge and ability to do that now. You are all being kept alive at the expense of nature.
You think you are all being humane by not eating the flesh of animals that are born and raised to be killed while participating in a system of destruction of the natural world; intelligent animals used to roaming forests, flying through trees, not bred through thousands of years to be placid, stupid and to accept their fate.
The bolded parts I totally agree with!
However, what I italicized I have a small bit to put it: Almost all of the corn, arguably the most destructive crop in the states, is grown to feed cattle. The GMO, subsidized crop that is destroying the land and the animals (humans included) on the land, is grown to fed animals who were not evolved to eat that food. When you stop eating cows, you stop that cycle. If everyone stopped eating cows, and after the earth somehow (big question mark, because some would say it can't) be restored back to healthy land, we would have so much more land, because between the land where cattle are raised (which is wasteland) and the land where the corn for the cows is grown, you would free up so much poisoned land to regrow. (wow I really started to ramble)
I would agree with your statements more if it wasn't for the simple fact that corn industry is how it is, with all the land it takes up, and it mostly being grown for cows.
I think the basic idea is doing the least harm. At least that's where my family and I are at. We try to do the least harm possible to ourselves and the world around us. This means buying from small farms, food co-ops, growing what we can, and we really do get almost everything we need that way. Then again, we live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest where it's a bit easier.
