Renouncing Animal Exploitation

"Novelist and slaughterhouse journalist Upton Sinclair once wrote, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” But while it may be difficult, it is not impossible. The following profiles are hope-filled proof that even those who stand to lose most by renouncing animal exploitation are frequently brave enough, and caring enough, to do so."

“Think about it: virtually every atrocity in the history of humankind was enabled by a populace that turned away from a reality that seemed too painful to face, while virtually every revolution for peace and justice has been made possibly by a group of people who chose to bear witness and demanded that others bear witness as well.”
― Melanie Joy, Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism: The Belief System That Enables Us to Eat Some Animals and Not Others

"Meat cannot be procured without violence" - Dr. Melanie Joy

To many, the semantics of animal "ownership" often are used in various realms to facilitate numerous aspects of animal exploitation. To many, whether animals are owned by "private" parties or by the public, once they become part of a public-funded facility in any manner their immediate and ongoing welfare also becomes the business of the public.

Conscious Decisions Needed To Show Mercy

"Animals who are destined for an abbreviated life that ends in a violent death now called to my conscience and required me to show up, and where I could, show what little bit of mercy I can. Since I have made this conscious decision to show mercy, my life has been blessed a million, million times over and I have found a deep peace. So no, in my experience, there is no such thing as humane animal products, humane farming practices, humane transport, or humane slaughter." - Harold Brown, former beef farmer viawww.HumaneMyth.org

Pacification And Absolution Through So-Called "Humane" Products

"In the last few years, people have started to say things like, “Oh, but I buy free-range eggs!” or “My meat isn’t from a factory farm, my meat is local.” It’s almost as if all concern about the treatment of animals has been pacified by these new and improved “alternative” animal products. By purchasing these “humane” products people feel absolved from the cruelty inherent in the animal agriculture industry. They feel that there is an alternative now at the farmer’s markets and in the “slow food” movement and if they just pay a little extra money, they can “have their meat and eat it too.” Consumers are being lulled into a complacency where they think the animals are now happy and this new way of farming is actually beneficial to the environment. They have been led to believe that all is well in the mythical world of humane animal agriculture; and that is exactly what the producers of these products want them to believe." - Hope Bohanec

Atrocities Enabled By Turning Away From Painful Realities

“Think about it: virtually every atrocity in the history of humankind was enabled by a populace that turned away from a reality that seemed too painful to face, while virtually every revolution for peace and justice has been made possibly by a group of people who chose to bear witness and demanded that others bear witness as well.”

A Gaping Hole in Empathy

The 2016 "replacement parts" pigs have now arrived at the public funded Wagner Farm.
The Wagner Farm cycle of 4-H pigs out, new pigs in has obviously begun again.
The gaping hole seen in the ear flap of one of the pigs demonstrates how many animals who are victims of animal agriculture have their bodies defiled in various ways.

video











For information as to these other (4-H) pigs (and 4-H lambs) who are now gone due to the programming outcomes at the public funded Wagner Farm, along with what has happened to many of the previous "replacement parts" pigs before a new 4-H season begins, please read:
Please see the exposes of Wagner Farm by Robert Grillo / Free from Harm and national journalist James McWilliams:
