The Slaughtering By Numbers

Just to think, in human numbers, even a few is a travesty. When we see the news, a rampant wild person decides to kill 5 people. In Chicago, the number killed over a year is 200, within a city population of a million but the country is over 300 million. Insignificant numbers to say the least. When looking by the number itself or by percentages.

During 9/11, about 3000 had lost there life. And that changed the way our world worked forever. In the Holocaust, 7 million, in the Cambodian genocide, nearly 1.5 million. Now that is staggering numbers and the worst in human history. This is how we gauge and experience numbers. All these human lives are precious. I’m not here to take away what has happened or diminished the atrocity. Only to look and open peoples eyes on the larger scale of what has happened and the killing we do by numbers.

I stumbled upon this article the other day and made me think and to compare. http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/12/asia/china-agricultural-census/index.html

Yet, when it comes to killing animals to feed. The numbers are astronomical and dwindle this in comparison. Obviously comparing human violence to feeding people is not apples to apples. But I do like to compare senseless killing. Because my objective is again to show that we humans have a choice and free will to decide on our life and what we eat. We have control what we can do.

Chicken

This census goes out in China to give the numbers of China’s Livestock and also arable land. The numbers are staggering to feed 1/3 of the worlds population. Lets take a look at some of the numbers. 4.8 Billion Chickens, 419 million pigs…. I mean these are all going to die for meat. Who knows how many are killed a day or year. But take this figure alone and I can’t even begin to comprehend how much are going to die. This is China alone! Not to mention how many years they will kill and keep killing to feed its ever growing population. How much is the worlds total of meat consumption? This is nearly a thousand millions that were killed in the Khmer Rouge Genocide or the Jewish Holocaust. If you were to think in terms of life and suffering. Its beyond anyone would want. Even searching for this article I found China is looking to limit the meat consumption by its people because they simply can’t feed them. Forced partial vegetarianism by its government hahaha. Who would have thought. Real eye opener to the agricultural industry and how much we consume. It seems to never be enough.

Mercy for Animals

Mercy for Animals is an organization that my wife discovered quite a few months ago. We been getting emails or see feeds on our facebook page about what they do and what their goal is. I personally love them. They are trying to shed light on a situation that is hidden from us. Its an issue of animal cruelty but due human ignorance do not wish to truly see. MFA fights hard to not let what is truly happening stay in the back of the room. They give voice to a great cause. They have a clear and strong message that should resonate with everyone.

They do not promote some anti-vegan/vegan agenda or go to overboard like some think with PETA. It is a basic necessity to all life that everyone should understand. That revolves around suffering and cruelty. They should just not die in such inhumane ways, surely we can all rally together for that? To have a pig testicles ripped off, chickens beaks cut, or cows stabbed with no reason. Can anybody really say that is fine with me? And if so why. Why is not an animal allowed to die without pain at least.

I honestly have to click out or not read many posts or articles. It is truly hurtful to see, but it needs to be seen by the public. We need to realize what we are doing and change our was. I love this organization and the people the ground fighting everyday to expose it. The key is awareness and they want to bring it from the depths so where we can see the truth. I donated some money to them and shared on my Facebook page. That is what little and least I can do. I hope to keep fighting for all animals.
