Very powerful stuff. This production makes some very valid points and is point blank true in the way we, as a species, treat other species on this planet.
Our cruelty to other Earthlings knows no bounds. We are a factory of consumers that process other sentient beings for our benefit. Yet, 99% of all humans choose to look away, and ignore our cruelty.
Fact is, if I had to process everthing I eat, I'd probably choose to grow veggies and harvest crops rather than kill an animal on a regular basis. But, we are so sheltered from our horrific slaughter houses that it's far too easy for you and me to not give it a second thought.
Also, what is unfathonable, IMHO, is our treatment of the vast majority of domesticated pets that we choose to keep as companions. We want pets to comfort us and make us feel good, yet we do so little for the suffering of our companions, and we allow the suffering to go on, again, with little thought about the long term health of so many of these fine companions. Very sad, but very true.
I don't have a problem with this film because I can face the ugly truth: I'm part of the reason so many animals are suffering. I do what I can in my own little way to keep my immediate campions comfortable but I don't do enough for all the other millions of animals that are kicked around, beaten, abused, warehoused, slaughtered, processed, tortured and killed every day in this country. It's hard to fathom the full extent of our cruelty when it comes to how many animals are suffering every day, around the world.
We as humans should be considered the custodians of planet Earth. And, if we are the custodians, we are doing horrific job of taking care of the Earth, and all of her blessed creations.
