What I mean is….
How important are your eating morals going to be when there is no commercial foods available. Will you let your children starve because there is no Tofu, or when the only thing you have to eat is a deer that you will have to kill and harvest yourself?
Will you cry and tear your hair out in anguish of the act that filled the stomachs of your family? Or will you thank the gods for the gifts of food that fill our world. Fresh meat, veggies, fruit, nuts?
If you would change the way you eat to survive at the end of the world, are your morals that deeply a part of you?
There are lots of reasons why folks choose to eat vegetarian, here is the basic breakdown I have encountered.
It is cruel to eat meat, but vegetables have no soul and are therefore exempt from mercy.
I am protesting the conditions animals are kept in by denying their worth as a food source.
Evolution is a theory, and we were made in the image of god, who told us not to kill.
We can get the nutrients we need to survive by eating lab enhanced abominations of tofu/veggie/burgers which are superior to natural nutrition in every way.
These are broad brush strokes of the types I have encountered.
None of these reasons stand up to my thought process. But they don’t have to. I’m not going to try and change the way anyone is eating. (Except my daughter. Her, I have control over). My time and energy can be used for better ends than tormenting others. Besides I have come to an epiphany.
The less people who eat grass fed meat, the more is left for me, and my family.
You can have my share of tofu, I’ll take your steak.
