为何自己不反对吃肉

葛兰汀的书

我在美利坚联邦合众国读大一。因为对动物感兴趣,这学期我修了一门名为“Call of
魏尔德”的课,从医学、伦理、科学等角度切磋动物以及人性问题。最近内需写的一篇杂谈和吃肉有关,在采访素材的时候,动物学家坦普·葛兰汀在他的书
Animals Make Us
Human
的结尾语中提及为何他工业屠宰房中工作。身为动物保护主义者,她设计工业屠宰房的作为也惨遭众几人的质询。很多不予吃肉的人都认为无辜的动物们是因为我们对肉的向前必要才死的,不过葛兰汀却赤裸裸的指出:假诺没有大家,那一个牲畜连出生在这几个世上的空子都尚未。

其实,人和这么些动物,本身就是一种互惠的关联:人类为它们提供住所、食品、安全保持,它们则在分享完自己不久的人命后为人类提供自己的肉,或者在那此前为全人类付出一定的麻烦。假使没有人类,它们也很难在弱肉强食的大自然中生活下来,即便勉强活下来了,生活也是随处劳苦,并不曾太多的幸福可言。在郊外,某些食肉的猛兽不会讲人道,让猎物一击丧生,它们会用更佳阴毒的不二法门撕咬猎物,甚至为了玩玩而一点点消磨猎物的谋生意识,让猎物在彻底和疼痛中渐渐死去。

和葛兰汀相同,我并不反对吃肉,可是自己所反对的,是这几个无法为这么些动物提供客观的生存环境而只想赚钱的想法。葛兰汀之所以可以支持屠宰房的运转,其实和她的初期工作经验也有涉及:她所接触的一对屠宰房,都在动物活着的时候为它们提供了可以的生活条件,并且让它们在极少的悲苦下死去,而且这几个经营者也非常耐心,从不对友好养的动物发脾气,即便是要把动物们最后送去屠宰,也尚未会吆喝、鞭打动物。所以葛兰汀在带一些观光客参观他的屠宰房时,排着队赴死的牛步履从容,如同平时一般,完全不知底自己会死,然后须臾间被一台形似射钉枪的仪器杀死,不会留下时间让它们挣扎和痛心。

生命总有缺少的一天,而衡量生命价值和含义的并不是长短,而是质料。假诺你的生活总是充满了被动的事物,你活得再长你也许都不会觉得有多好。事实上,现在有广大的宠物生活质地还不如那个牲畜。很四个人一时冲动买了宠物来娱乐自己,然后在自己忙的时候把宠物锁在狭窄的上空里。有千千万万宠物狗,因为主人没有花充足的年华陪伴和照管而易于变得心绪失控,孤独而难熬。葛兰汀在书中第二章详细阐释了那一点并觉得人相应像狗狗的妻儿一样花越来越多的小时陪伴和关爱狗狗。

据此,错的并不是吃肉本身,而是我们在向那一个养殖动物索取它们的肉时,没有提供同等条件的条件、饮食和照看,让它们在活着的时候忍受过多的煎熬,在影视《食物商店》,许多心狠手辣集团的把过多的家畜挤在窄小的空间里,令人切齿。

我早已尝试过只吃素食,然则并未了肉,我觉着活着也失去了本来的情调,所以最终我选用继续喜欢吃肉,控制食用量。所以也在那边復苏部分动物爱好者:我不会反对你们为了动物成为素食主义者,可是请不要以此为理由绑架自己吃肉的义务。

最终附上一些从葛兰汀书中摘录出来的看法英文原句:

From the very beginning of my career I saw that cattle could be raised
right and given a good life and painless death.

Our relationship with the animals we use for food must be symbiotic.

伟德国际1946手机版下载,We provide the farm animals with food  and housing and in return, most
of the offspring from the breeding cows on the ranches are used for
food.

None of the cattle that were at this slaughter plant would  have been
born if people had not bred raised them. They would never have lived
at all.

People forget that nature can be very harsh, and death in the wild is
often more painful and stressful than death in a modern plant.

Ranchers worked hard to save their animals. The natural environment can
be very tough world.

The animals are instantly killed by a device that looks like a gigantic
stainless-steel nail gun.

Many people today are totally insulated from death, but every living
thing eventually dies; this is the cycle of life.
Since people are
responsible for breeding and raising farm animals, they must also take
the responsibility to give the animals living conditions that provide a
decent life and a painless death.
During the animal’s life, both its
physical needs and its emotional needs should be satisfied. Intensive
farming systems need to be improved because the quality of the animals’
lives is poor in some of them.

Many cattle have better lives than some of the pampered pets. Too many
dogs are alone all day with no human or dog companions.

Dogs that live a more confined existence are less likely to get killed,
but their quality of life may be poorer unless their owners spend a lot
of time playing and interacting with them.

A good life requires three things: health, freedom from pain and
negative emotions
, and lots of activities to turn on SEEKING and
PLAY.
