Arblesnarf, maybe they DO hide things, and maybe they need to hide things, such as oh... When they bring the cattle in. It's FILTHY in those trucks. I bet you didn't see all of the freaking factory!
I couldn't watch it all. It was way too sad

I watched the first part and most of the second part, then i skipped here and there through the rest. I have rewritten what I want to say several times, some more passionate than others, but I'm just going to stick with this: that was really sad ;(

The monotone managed to make me lose the empathy it had going on during the "pets" chapter. As to how they kill the animals, it's a dirty job; but I don't think a zebra dies immediately after the lion bites it. It's eaten alive and more or less bleeds to death. We just have a different way of doing it, and as a country, in the US, try to make regulations to limit animal suffering. Integrity, of course, plays a role in this. Still, I couldn't help but get hungry during the food part, albeit I feel for it.

I watched the whole thing. To those of you who said f*ck this, why don't you try actually watching it instead of lurking around on some porn site. I see why people say this is life, but they could find a way to not do it as bad, and find a cleaner way. This movie make A LOT of sense to me. If you haven't watched it already, please, I suggest you to do so.

one thing i dont get is that they tell me (us) that it is among our best interests to love and respect "ol' fido" as much as we can and then they turn around and say you know what why dont we just cut fido's balls off cuz its very humane and makes him feel respected now doesn't it. and now i question the antics of using gas chambers to "euthanize" dogs.

the part with the cow at kosher in the beginning is a bit too much for me.....i dont really want to watch anymore of that then i already have.
if anyone watched this video and thought that it wasnt cruel, then your sick.
i understand that meat is good and all, but those poor things should be killed quicky so that they dont have to suffer so much.
HAVE SOME MERCY, geez :(

I just want to add emphasis to a point scytheofluna just made: no one has said that you, personally, are horrible because you work on a farm, arblesnarf. No one has said that you MUST be a vegetarian to be an ethical human being. I know plenty of wonderful people, including almost every member of my family, who choose to eat meat. I still love them all the same. HOWEVER, they are all EDUCATED consumers, who admit the cruelty that comes from these kinds of mass-farming operations, and strive to buy humane products whenever possible. While I strongly disagree with scytheofluna's way of speaking to people in this thread, I sincerely understand his frustration - I used to be much the same way. Talking down to people will get you nowhere. But I think the whole point of his posts is to ask people to THINK about what they are consuming, and where it comes from. There are other ways - and vegetarianism is not the only option (even though it is my personal choice).

DOMISGOOD We've already covered the survival issue people don't need to eat meat to survive. Try READING THE OTHER POSTS before posting an idiotic comment like that and making an ass out of yourself.

Jesus, I lied, just to ensure my point is being well proven, I checked a couple of Assimilate's references, and now I feel ill. Check out some of the stuff from Youtube. If you can spout that kind of rhetoric in the face of all of that, you're seriously out of touch with reality, and can hardly come close to being taken seriously. If you don't want people to talk down to you, evolve already.

Oh, and just for the sake of providing some personal experience to throw into the mix my wife prior to becoming a vegetarian WORKED AT A MEAT PACKING PLANT, and has seen some of these horrors first hand. You really need to lay off the assumptions.

Check out some of the stuff Assimilate posted. I can't bear to watch it anymore, but I've seen more than enough through the years in vain attempts to beat people like you over the head with the truth.
I'm beyond trying to spare people's feelings on this subject anymore. People used to think that the world was flat, and that it was okay to treat women and minorities as lesser peoples, and it is my strong belief that humanity's treatment of animals is just as backward, just as wrong, and just as sad. If you think you're the first person to try and change my mind with a bunch of petty justifications and denials, you're sadly mistaken.
The fact that you assume that this industry has nothing to hide is a joke.

Damn, Assimilate beat me to the punch. 'Saved me from doing a bunch of cutting and pasting myself.

However given the rather thread-narrow mindedness that arble has demonstrated I think each and every one of us could bury him under a mountain of such evidence, and he'd continue with the same weak arguments and half @ssed justifications.

As for evidence of your own. YOU HAVEN'T PROVIDED ANY, aside from personal experience and nonsense about how these places have nothing to hide. And as I've already stated in plain English, not all farms partake in such behaviour. Let me reiterate so that it has a chance of sinking into your seemingly teflon brain. NOT ALL FARMS SUBSCRIBE TO SUCH CRUEL BEHAVIOUR. Your utter denial that many and most do is laughable. And I'm sorry if you think I'm talking down to you, but when addressing someone who's so completely naive, I can't help it. You and your ilk ethical and moral dinosaurs.

I'm going to stick with calling you an extremist, for the fact that I believe I could put all the information in the world in front of you that not all animals on "Factory farms" are treated like this and you would still not acknowledge it....Therefore making you an extremist. I live in an area where farming is the norm, I have been to production pig farms and also to production Chicken egg farms, NEVER seen anything like this...and trust me, they don't hide anything because they don't have too. Still you have provided no info or credibility on this subject....I can most certainly say like before that you have taken all of your information from videos such as this one. Also... not a fan of you talking down to me.

this made me shed a tear, not allot of documentarys does that to me


the strong should look after the weaker.
B-|

ever thought about... all these people here that say this is awefull (I agree) what if you guys where politics? if you all thousand of you shared the presidents chair, would you have made a change? would you sit there and watch the entire mean personry crash becous of how its already living on the efficensy of this treatment/slaughter?

some people would, but seriusly... its not easy just changing stuff that will affect the electors opinion of you becous you took away their jobs and income.

I'm all for this to stop. i would want to see the world go under and let room for a super force conrtolled by the people to emerge and do something about this.
I live on a farm and after watching thisd I think my animals are doing all right :P

for all you guys that don't want to watch this because you want to be entertained, you are exactly the reason why the world is becoming the way it is. i won't get into it now.
i'm not a vegetarian or a vegan. never have been. but after seeing this movie i've seen things that i knew were happening, but was denying - and seeing it on the screen really opened up my eyes. i'm gonna go hug my dog now =(

Topo_Gego: everyone (myself included) has been so wrapped up in defending their own arguments that little time has been taken to acknowledge the positive things that have been said, or things that each of us personally agree with. So, I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for your posts. They were well stated, and made very good points. If one truly wants to opt out of the system created for us, which this film depicts, education is ABSOLUTELY a requirement. With the knowledge gained, each of us is of course entitled to make our own decisions, but at least they are EDUCATED decisions.
Thank you very much for making a rare visit, and for your very valid points.
