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!"

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.

The human race in general (fuck I'm being a hypocrit I hate gerneralizing) is greedy, incosiderate, egoistic, lying, incompetent, lazy fuckatards who are blinded by society's fake image and the government's lies. But it's almost obvious that our lives are based off of conspiercy and all that fucking yucky shit.

I belive in the first place humans were meant to be herbavours (Sp? stoner can't spell), I mean it's all in our biological format... but somthing a long time ago stopped that.

Oh, and here's another little rant about capitalism:

You sound like someone who feels that they should be greatly opposed to capitalism. Well, here's your other options. Communism, Facism, Monarchy, Dictatorship, or Anarchy.

Communism - has been attempted and failed in many places which were not ready for communism due to a lack of industrialization. For communisim to work, it must be attempted in a society COMPLETELY willing to become a communist society and it must be a highly industrialized area. Otherwise, those unwilling to succumb to communism will have to be closely monitored to prevent revolution after the removal of a hierarchy government. Therefore, the community's lives will have to be closely watched and controlled, and the government will be forced to become a totalitarian dictatorship. Also, assuming that the society is willing to become a communist society, the area must be highly industrialized. This means big factories, most likely using large amounts of resources and high amounts of polutants being released into the environment

Facism - All I have to say is that Nazism is a form of fascism. If you wanna talk about thinking that you're better than everyone else, this has you completely covered. Facism believes in a superior race of people and considers all others to be disposable.

Monarchy - Whatever. You want your freedom of choice, speech, and protest gone, you go right ahead.

Dictatorship - Once again, the removal of your freedom is your own choice i suppose, but dont inflict it on me. Go ahead and move to Cuba. See how much you enjoy it there. There nothing is Me Me Me. There its all Leader Leader Leader.

Anarchy - An anarchy can not and would not function in a human society. It would be complete chaos without complete peace, which is, as sad as it is to say, unacheiveable by the human race. It is in human nature to fight, wether it be in good fun or out of anger. Not to mention, an anarchy is a highly selfish form of government since it is basically every-man-for-himself


And Capitalism isnt really just BUY BUY BUY DONT CARE ABOUT ANYONE ELSE. Capitalism is about earning your own place in the community. Rather than being assigned a place, everyone starts (basically) with a clean slate. You create your own destiny in a capitalism. Not to mention, capitalism is good for the economy. When the econmy is good, more people have jobs and more people are off the streets with more food on the table. I dont care what you've heard or what you seem to think is a wonderful radical notion. Capitalism is one of the best possible economic/government forms, especially when paired with a democratic (technically we're a republic, but I'll let it go) government.

I understand what you are saying about Americans becoming apathetic about the world around them. And yes, our actions do have an affect on those around the world. However, there are some things that will never change. There will always be poor. There always have been and there always will be. And honestly, I think that its a good thing that there are people who are dying and dont have enough food. It gives activists like you something to strive for and fight for. A purpose in your life, which everyone should have. While I think it's unfortunate that these people are dying while we are living comfortably, it is unavoidable. We cannot feed all the people of this world, regardless of what you may believe or the statistics you've been fed. Give to charities, and help those in need, but you need to understand that you wont be able to fix the problem, only a few people.


I am an American. I am not apathetic. I am not a vegitarian and I think that Capitalism is great.

no, you're not understanding me correctly. i never said i was an anarchist. I am not an anarchist because i believe that this is an impossible government/non-government for humans to follow. I do not think that any specific government/economic policy is necissarily RIGHT for humans, but i do believe that a republic (yes, thats what the USA is no matter how much you may hear its a democracy) with capitalism is the best route to take. Even Lenin allowed some forms of capitalism into his communist movement. Without capitalism, people have no motivation to work harder or to make something no one else has seen. Capitalism fuels hard workers and new inventions.

i know that capitalsim isn't all bad! i also know, that communsism wouldn't work! or anarchism for that matter....or anything else we know!

i wrote it before, capitalism builds on human greed! i don'T call myself an anarchist, or capitalist, or nazist, or communist! i beliefe, that the perfect or close to perfect system hasn't been thought of. and it will take a while till humans find it! but the only way they will, is if there are activists! some people have to follow their dream of a better world, or nothing will ever change! we can only hope, that humans won't destroy the planet before we achieve this!

ok, so i've got a few things i wanna tell you:

first of all, i agree that it is natures will for humans to eat meat! ... but the amount humans eat isn't! i'm not saying everyone eats too much meat, but there are people that have meat like three times a day... and the most pathetic thing about it is, that these people, or at least most of 'em, wouldn't ever kill an animal to eat it ... too disgusting?! ... let alone be able too. take a really heave person (i don't want to offend anyone here!) do you think this person would manage to hunt down a cow to eat it? humans have become too comfortable! all they need to do is hop into their car, drive down to a store and buy a chunk of meat!

got a good example: there was this stupid tv show in german television like a year ago. a few people ("celebs") stayed in a cabin on the mountains (a kind of farm in austria) for a month or so. they had to do stupid things every day, like milk a cow with their mouths etc, with cameras following them. the more tasks they managed the more stuff they got. anyway, one task was to kill a pig, for them to eat. a lot of the women started crying when they heard the task. this one guy said he'd do it, no problem. and another one started yelling at him "if you do this i'll kill ya! are you crazy? you can't just kill this animal..."
so here's my problem: this guy goes to a shop to buy like a kilo of meat, without thinking about it twice. but then, when he has to kill for his meat, he flips!
i hope you see what i mean!
and by the way...i know that hitler was a veg., but what the hell has that got to do with anything? he did it, so others shouldn't...wait a minute, he breathedtoo, so maybe we should stop that too?...



now second of all about your capitalism statement:
i agree that most other forms of government wouldn't work...unfortunately! the problem is human greed! like you said, it in our nature to fight...
BUT the fact that it seems to be the only system that works doesn't make it the right one! you say, everyone has to earn their place in the community and everyone starts with a clean slate? well excuse my crude language, but that is bullshit! tell that to a person, born in the slums of Mexico City! The chances, that he manages to be successful in our system are minimal! they are there, but only like one in ....*a very very high number*
on the other hand there are people, that are born into wealthy families. they basically never have to work hard. everything is served to them on a golden plate.
i hope you see, that not everyone has the same chances in a capitalist system! it's pure luck, where you are born...


"There will always be poor. There always have been and there always will be."
if everyone would think like you about everything, we'd still be living in caves... it's called evolution!

"And honestly, I think that its a good thing that there are people who are dying and dont have enough food. ... While I think it's unfortunate that these people are dying while we are living comfortably, it is unavoidable."
so we're back on human greed i guess! a lot of people like you think "i can't change a thing, so WTF, i'll live like a selfish pig!" it's the same thing, why so many people don'T vote, cause they think they can't change a thing...but you can! every voice counts! i mean, you think so, your neighbour thinks so...the whole world thinks so! this way things really never will change! now you're gonna say "exactly, that's what i've been saying" but that only prooves my point!

so maybe you'll think twice, next time you praise your beloved capitalsim...or maybe think of all the people living in poverty...dying, while others lie infront of their tv, wasting away, wasting food and water!

oh and a little side note: did you know, that the three richest people on earth have more money, than the gross domestic product of the 48 poorest countries on earth, with their 568 million inhabitant... that's what i call equality!

"and by the way...i know that hitler was a veg., but what the hell has that got to do with anything? he did it, so others shouldn't...wait a minute, he breathedtoo, so maybe we should stop that too?..."

^ That was more of a joke than anything. Honestly, i have nothing against vegitarians. What I have a problem with is a vegitarian trying to tell me that my lifestyle is wrong just cause i like to have a little chicken in my salad. And, yes, i would kill for a meal. I want to live off the land for a few months once i graduate. That means hunting down my meals. Yea, I know that a lot of people couldnt do that cause they're too damned fat. But, honestly, i couldnt give two flying fucks about the people who have eaten too much McDonalds. And I dont really expect them to give two flying fucks about me, either. I do not eat too much meat, and nine times out of ten, 2/3 or all 3 of the meals i eat in a day have no meat in them whatsoever. And, yes, according to the nutritionalists, you ARE supposed to have 2-3 servings of protien a day. which for most people means meat.


"you say, everyone has to earn their place in the community and everyone starts with a clean slate? well excuse my crude language, but that is bullshit!"

^ I was not saying that everyone has a truly clean slate. I fully understand how difficult it is to rise from the slums. But the thing is it IS possible. If someone living in the slums truly wishes to make something out of themselves, and keeps themselves out of trouble(which i will admit is extremely difficult in the slums), they do have the chance to rise above that. There is lots of proof of that in the US. Many many MANY immigrants came here completely broke, and yet you see irishmen and african americans and poles all getting to be more and more self-sufficient and getting higher and higher in terms of job opportunities. Yes, they all started in the slums. No, they were not handed sucess. Yes, they have gained sucess through hard work and determination. In many countries, this is not possible. An example of this would be India in the past (i am not sure if this applies to present day India as well or not). They were run on a caste system, which basically says that where you were born is where you are meant to stay. There was a group called the untouchables, who could not even walk on the same side of the street as higher caste members. If you were born an untouchable, you would die an untouchable. it was NOT POSSIBLE to rise above it. That is what i love about capitalism. You have the ability to rise above what is expected of you.



""There will always be poor. There always have been and there always will be."
if everyone would think like you about everything, we'd still be living in caves... it's called evolution!"

^That quote is from the bible. Now, if you think about it, that was over 2000 years ago. Do you really think that, if over 2000 years, things havent changed, and in fact, have worsened, that a small act of activism will change it? You're a very optomistic person to believe the poor can be cured. But I am a realist.



"so maybe you'll think twice, next time you praise your beloved capitalsim...or maybe think of all the people living in poverty...dying, while others lie infront of their tv, wasting away, wasting food and water!"


^Next time you start trying to shove your ideals done my throat, maybe you'll think about the fact that you dont fucking know me. You dont know how i spend my life. And, my dear, as far as i can tell, you're preaching about people wasting their life in front of a TV while you waste yours in front of a computer. Practice what you preach.

ok, i'm sorry, i really didn't want to offend you!
i realize, that i don't know you as a person and can't know what you are like...i was writing more like general about the human race!

so i think our view on veganism and vegetarianism is basically the same! i'm not a vegan or vegetarian, but i eat meat very very very seldom. i also think you shouldn't judge other people like that, it's naturs way, and you can't force people to think the way you think!
i was mearly pointing out, that the way meat is "made" in most places is not naturs way! and it's "inhuman" *you know what i mean!*
if you say you want to hunt your own food and you could, i respect that!
i guess we're on the same point of view with that!

now about capitalism:
i'm sorry i missunderstood you about that! but still the chances for a rich child to be successful are a hell of a lot bigger that those of a poor child! that's what bugs me. it isn't equal. it isn't fair! you might manage if you absolutely want to and believe in it and do something for it, but it's a lot about being in the right place at the right time! yes, a lot of people managed, but do you really believe that that are all that tried? ok, maybe not...but not even all that tried hard enough? a lot of people work just as hard and don't manage it!
anyway, even if everyone could manage to be successful, i still think it's a highly unequal system! how's it fair, that the western living standard is only possible, if there are people, that live in absolute poverty. they earn less in one year, than some people in a month, week, day or even hour!
first world countries would never ever help third world countries enough for their inhabitants to live without any existential problems! we could, but why should we risc our good life for some people, we'll never ever see?! that's what many people think, consciously or subconsciously.

now what you said about poverty always being arround:
yes i know it's been over 2000 years...more than that acutally, a lot more! but as i wrote: if i think it's wrong, i want to express my feelings about it! i don't want to say that everyone has to be against our system, that would seem like a dictatorship! i just want to say everyone should express their own feelings about things! and thoughts like "it's not changed in 200 years, why should it change now?" just make the problem bigger! i think i elaborated this problem plenty in my last comment! to sum up i think everyone can make a difference, as long as there are others that think like him! if you have the chance to even make the slightest difference, grasp it, cause the more there are the higher the chances are!


and as an end i have to tell you, that you are doing the same thing i might have done *again i'm sorry if you missunderstood!*
but how do you know i waste my life infront of this machine? "wasting away infront of something" for me is more like sitting in front of it all the time! doing nothing else! and i have to tell you, i don't! i don't mind a bit of TV or a bit of PC! but there are people, that really do waste away infront of it!
i hope you understand what i mean!

Yea, I'm pretty laid back about everything. I really dont know why i flipped out on your particular piece. It just really bugs me when I'm put into the generalization of one of the fat americans who wastes away in front of a TV and eats meat all the time, cause I'm not. I'm not constantly out saving the planet, but I'm not wasting away either. So when someone assumes the way i spend my life, i feel like they really cant say that and that i need to put them back into their place. *shrug* all in all, i just really enjoy a good debate. Sorry if you thought that you offended me. hehe. I have a tendency to use bad language and take the side most people dont think of, which tends to make me seem angry or offended, but im not. It takes quite a bit to get me really pissed.

thanks for the apology, though. much appreciated :D

Here's the thing, and I know I'm gonna get bitched out for this, but i dont eat meat because I think it tastes good. Yea, I like chicken and yes, my tastebuds thank me for it. But let me say something:

If you're such an animal lover, you must totally understand the fact that animals kill one another as a food source. And you sure as hell cant tell me that it's less humane to be killed via electric shock than it is to be ripped apart by sharp fangs as you see the rest of your pack or herd or what-have-you running away. Have you ever seen an animal get caught and killed? Have you seen the fear in it's eyes? Now, I personally think one quick zap is far better. And since you know all this about animals, you know that animals who are carnivorous have large fang-like teeth in the front which are called canines. They also typically have their eyes placed facing forward on their head as a result of evolution to make it easier to improve coordination and make a kill easier. Now, look at humans. We have our eyes in the front of our heads. We have canine teeth. Our bodies need sufficient levels of protien to sufficiently process. Now you try and tell me that we were made to eat all veggies.

Dont give me this crap about how Americans just couldnt give a shit about the animals they eat. As you can see, I've put a hell of a lot of thought into this and I am fully set on the idea that humans were meant to eat meat. It's how our digestive systems are set up (the appendix was used for processing raw meat back in the old days). We need certain protiens that are extremely difficult to gain without eating meat and many of the protiens that we need to thrive are only contained in meat. I love salads, but I know that without my protien, I wont be the healthy person that I want to be. Meat is good for you. And I am NOT an apathetic American, thankyouverymuch.

I know this is from a long time ago, just wondering if your views have changed...There are scientists who say that it was not natures intention for humans to eat animals.
Did you know that humans are the only animal that continue drinking milk after birth? Drinking cows milk, one example of many regarding cruelty to animals and our unnatural ways, is disgusting...It is not even human milk. We are not babies and yet many people are still drinking another animal's milk. How is this 'natures way' as I think you put it further down.

there are many many many health benefits to drinking milk as we continue to grow.

and as for those scientists who refute it, im sure they're out there. but there are also scientists out there who believe FIRMLY that dinosaurs never existed.

some of my views have changed, yes. but i still continue to eat meat. and the truth of the matter is, that i continue to eat meat because of the large inconvienience it would be to be a vegetarian. i know that sounds cruel. but its just a fact. i find it much easier to get all my protiens from meat (where its all bundled into a realtively neat little package) than to have to fret over beans and nuts. and although vitamins help, it is NOT enough to only eat vitamins to support the protiens we are lacking.

as for "natures way", no, drinking cows milk is not "natures way". but neither is driving a car or even riding a bike. natures way was gone a long time ago.


blehhhh

im so far done with this conversation, because the truth of the matter is that no one is going to convince anyone of anything. we're both stubborn and obviously set in our ways. sooo adios.

LOL

It's quite funny to hear people's flimsy arguments, claiming somehow that because one animal eats another in a natural environment, it makes harvesting tens of thousands of animals in windowless sheds, throwing them into transport lorries, hanging them up by their legs and then scalding them alive somehow a comparison.

If you want to talk about animals eating each other, its a case of survival of the fittest. If you think that's the way we should be, then you should be outside chasing animals down and tearing them apart with your (blunt, herbivorous) teeth and eating them raw. How is putting animals into close confinement, pumping them with drugs to keep them alive, then killing them in any way related to our natural instincts?

LOL - I don't think "we have eyes on the front of our heads" is the best of justifications.
Physiological structure of the human body indicates that it is more suited to eating a diet of (preferably raw) vegetables. Carnivores have shorter intestines - because they need to process meat quickly and get it out of their system - whereas we have long intestines. Carnivores have sharp teeth - for tearing flash - I'd like to see you try that. Carnivores have claws for digging into prey - we have blunt, pathetic fingernails.

Have you ever even seen a factory farm? Maybe you should take a look.

And maybe you should look at the "quick zaps" that animals go though in the oh-so-natural process of making meat for greedy tasetbuds [link]

This is it. I'm not saying more. Because people like you have made up your minds already. I see what humans do to animals every day, and its people like you who thinks its somehow justified to make up some flimsy defence for it.

For people like you, only a planet with no O-Zone layer, obesity epidemics and disease-ridden bodies will make you listen. What's the point?

Oh come on. You seriously believe that we arent carnivorous at all? THEN WHY DO WE HAVE AN APPENDIX? And yea, i think that I probably should go kill my own food, but guess what. I'm stuck in the suburbs so there's really nothing i can do about it.
Our teeth and nails have gotten flimsy and blunt only after years of deterioration. We dont have them anymore cause we really dont need them. And our teeth arent herbivorous if we have canines. We're not carnivores and we're not herbivores. We're omnivores. Like bears.
Yes, I have seen a factory farm, and it's not pretty. But I doubt theres really all that much worse than being ripped apart like an animal is in the wild. Yea, our systems for food processing could be far better, but for the time being they're not as bad as they could be. And I do have some values when it comes to that. I sure as hell dont eat veil because I know what they do to the lambs and thats just plain out sick on a whole other level.


"I see what humans do to animals every day, and its people like you who thinks its somehow justified to make up some flimsy defence for it."
Dont you dare start on me with the way I treat animals. I treat animals better than I treat some humans, so dont you DARE start to fuck with me about that.

"For people like you, only a planet with no O-Zone layer, obesity epidemics and disease-ridden bodies will make you listen. What's the point?"
I eat as healthy as I can(which includes a steady supply of PROTIEN which is essential for a healthy and fully-functioning body), and I would LOVE to do Doctors Without Borders if i were smart enough, but since I'm not I'm going to join the army so i can help protect the people that I love and the people in other nations i dont even know. And do not go off on the army because I will beat you down. I think that people on this planet, for the most part, while having some good in them tend to be total assholes when it comes to their environment and the thought of littering is something I have yet to grasp. I understand that there's a shortage of oil, and when I can afford a hybrid that actually runs well without stalling on the middle of the highway causing a 50-car-ple-up I will buy it. But I'm going to tell you something. I am a learning Buddhist mixed with a catholic upbringing and every other religion you can imagine I have probably tried. And you know what you learn in Buddhism? There is suffering in the world, and you cant stop it by going to an extreme. Extremes just cause more suffering. If you go all veg, you dont satisfy the deep needs of your body for certain fats and protiens found in meat. If you only eat meat, well, thats just awful for you in general because you dont get any of the other nutrients you need. Instead you have to follow the middle path, and eat some of both to create a balance.

Trust me, when it comes to ignorant assholes on this planet I'm the least of your worries. You cant even begin to judge me. you dont know my past, my present, or my future, so dont try to tell me who i am or who i should be. I have seen some serious assholes on this planet, some of whom I have been related to or who have deeply hurt those I love. If you really want to make a difference in this world, instead of worrying about who's getting too fat or who should eat less meat, why dont you worry about the kids getting raped in the ass by their mom's boyfriends. Why dont you worry about the people leaving their babies to die in a dumpster with the rats and cockroaches? Why dont you worry about the woman killing each one of her children methodically in her backyard with a rock? I think there's a lot more evil in this world than you can see or are wiling to admit.

There's just no point with me posting a "comeback", seeming as you obviously can't understand what I'm saying in the first place. You seem too aggressive to rationalise any kind of argument - perfect for the army, though.

And yeah, I'm gonna be SO happy knowing you're out blasting the heads of little children. And how safe I shall feel knowning we have armies infuriating the local people of unstable countries! :nod:

I wont be blasting the heads off of little children unless, of course, they're about to blast off my own head. I'll be blasting off the heads of the bastards who are torturing these children and killing the people of my own country for NO GOOD REASON other than to piss us the fuck off.

And yes, i am agressive. But I tend to get that way when anyone makes an assumption about who I am. You dont know me. At all. So fuck off.

And, just to let you know, while we're making assumptions about people and such, I happen to think that you sound like a very, very boring person who's gonna grow up and be a very very boring no body.


spread the love.

Sorry, but I don't do petty insults. It only happens when people have got nothing rational to say about the revelant subject, so end up trying to make random judgements on people they don't know.

You can't blame me if you've mis-read practically every post I made, and taken my generalisations about society as comments about you. You're right, I don't know you, except from the randomly-aggressive posts you keep sending me. Whatever you make of my posts is your own interpretation, if you actually understand them in the first place, that is.

Come and "beat me down" if you like, but I'm not discussing this further, my life is too busy to waste.

:omfg: Wow thanks for the nice comments guys, I'm glad my rantings were so well received!!
(not many people seem to bother reading it, or bother trying to understand what I'm rambling on about..! ) :nod:

I was thinking of making a website with my political art, so if I draw a few more maybe eventually they can be t-shirts! :)

Thanks again for all the responses - its so nice to see other people who have the mental capacity to think outside the box. :#1:

I love this one. Great concept. Great colours! Nice figures and layout. Although the TV screens flickering could be a bit sharper?
I might be willing to buy this as a t-shirt. Only I dont have much money :)
