This is What Industrialized Consumption Looks Like
This video is somewhat disturbing but that’s the point.
The cynic in me thinks that watching animals processed on an old-time traditional farm isn’t necessarily the most comforting thing to watch either – at least in that case you know where your food is coming from, how the animal is raised, and if it is treated humanely. It makes me think that I should think more about where my food is coming from and how it is treated – after all you quite literally are what you eat.
This video does drive home industrialized society’s insatiable thirst for resources – in this case chicken, milk, and pork – and how easy it is for us to consume more than our fair (or even healthy) share.
