Today I decided to become a vegan.

In school we watched the documentary “Baraka" in which are some scenes about mass production, especially chicken / eggs. Also before I had a critical thinking about mass production. But watching this today was my turning point to at least give up supporting the mass production of animal based food.

It was horrible to watch how the people who work in the factory treated the little baby chickens. They throw them around as if they were stones with no feelings, and the chickens were just falling on top of each other. I can’t even imagine how terrified they must be, being tossed around like this! And the people there seemed like robots doing their job…

I’m not against eating meat or animal products in general. If you have your own little barn with a few chicken that can run around free and live a good life, I’m okay with you collecting their eggs and eating them. Or if you live in Norway and you go Elk-hunting, shoot one for the purpose of eating it later, I’m okay with that (the human race has been hunters for like forever). I’m just against mass production and consumption.

If you do it responsibly, for me this is another topic. I mean, a lion is also a hunter and kills. But he kills only as much as it needs to feed himself and his pride. He’s not building antelope-factories to mass produce and sell the meat to other prides in the savanna…

I would still eat animal products if I wouldn’t have to buy it from a supermarket. But I can’t afford my own barn, or go hunting, or get the products from a local farmer where I can be sure about how he treats the animals. But I rather resign eating animal products at all, than support the mass production of it…
