If humans were in the picture, this would be called a genocide, a holocaust. The people in charge would be called evil, their acts: Torture and murder. But because this is happening to animals who are not humans, it is seen as “farming”, “the circle of life”, and worst of all: “Normal”.
"I understand that the consumption of animals has taken place throughout human history, but back when the human race was driven by spirit, not ego, animals were killed only out of necessity. They were thanked, and laid to rest in a very respectful way. Today, it’s nothing short of a worldwide genocide." Arjun Walia
“This stunning sculpture by Liu Qiang is an accurate depiction of humanity’s use of, and utter dependence on other animals and, in particular, the savage and bizarre habit of consuming the breast milk from mothers of other species—milk that these mothers have produced for their own babies, babies that we forced them to become pregnant with only to kill shortly after birth so that we can take the bereft mother’s milk, milk that we drink as though we were the children that we murdered.”
