“Immoral governments tolerate desertification and land salting, concreted highways and city sprawl, which take more good land permanently out of life production than the loss of territory to a conqueror.”
Bill Mollison

Permaculture: A Designer's Manual

Cows with holes

n

we domsesticated cows but left them to graze

we depleted their pastures and brought in hay

we took away their hay and brought in medicated feed

we take away their young so that we can have more milk

we’ve abused, devolved and humiliated these creatures … and now we “open a window into their stomach” :

and why do we do this:

“It’s amazing how much we can learn from these animals for the betterment of their health and for product production.”

I don’t know what’s more sad, the way we treat these animals or the immense lies that we tell ourselves to mask and justify our stupidity, arrogance and horrible violence. Intellect run amok.
