Zombie Nation - x-vegan-x by Activists Zombie Nation - x-vegan-x by Activists
by



"Did you know that 250,000 children die every week from starvation and disease?
Did you know that a 10% reduction in meat intake would leave enough grain to feed these children?
Did you know that meat and dairy production is the second biggest polluter on the planet, only second to cars?
Did you know animals scream and cry while they're shackeld upside down, ready to be prepared for your tastebuds?
Do you know how it feels to be electrocuted and skinned alive?

No-one gives a shit, because thinking is just too hard. Welcome to the zombie nation, where shoes and lipstick are simply more important than starving children. And tastebuds are more important than life. Never mind that we're screwing the planet, as long as I'M fine and my clothes look nice, and I have a full belly. Then everything is fine.

The endless sale of anything and everything is making our generations into selfish, apathetic people. This continuous stream of capitalist ideology is the biggest polluter - of people's minds.

It's astonishing how selfish we have become, in a society where the focus is solely on ourselves and the amount of possessions we can surround ourself with. When the truth is, happiness will never come from any of these things. While people are convinced to want needless objects, they will never be happy.

There is so much more to be concerned about than when the next issue of Heat magazine comes out. Like the fact that people die unncessarily every second - because the actions of EVERY ONE of us affect the entire planet.

So lets all get drunk and watch tv, consume this and that, then consume some more. Oh and don't forget to consume a bit more in the morning, too. No-one will notice because they're all mindless zombies too.

Just to add: The tv sets represent how everyone has adopted the materialistic and shallow values of capitalism - buy, buy buy and don't give a damn about anything else. It demonstrates how the majority of people just don't think anymore - tv does that for them!"

Well, we're surrounded in an artificial world.
Isn't this sort of behavior supposed to be expected?

I totally agree with you. Its sickening to look at society, sad really and to be apart of it is even more sad. I had to become a vegan, to attempt to be a whole person and to be responsible for myself. You have to hand it to the Meat, Egg and Dairy industry's they have brainwashed so much of the populace, and people are so adamant in their views they are like all in denial, even when you show them the facts they refuse to believe or they try and rationalize it. Words like "Custom will reconcile people to any atrocity."- George Bernard Shaw and "Whenever people say 'we mustn't be sentimental,' you can take it they are about to do something cruel. And if they add, 'we must be realistic,' they mean they are going to make money out of it."
-Brigid Brophy come to mind when I see the industry of the modern epoch. It makes me shudder with the enormity of its villainy. Not to mention the fur industry. What I really dont understand is how these people who work at these Factory Farms sleep at nite, they must be so desensitized. I pity them.

Very good deviation.
