What the He** is going on?
To an extent we all are a little freaked out by the thought of eating meat. Even if us meat eaters don't admit it. I'll be the first to admit that I rarely eat meat. In that when I do.. it's very rare.
The idea of Matrix-ized chickens bred only to provide meat somehow makes the process of raising broilers simply for meat to an all new level of unease.
But recently in my internet travels I stumbled across this bit of atrociousness.
Apparently this idea hatched from philosopher Paul Thompson at Purdue University who suggests we should adopt the “The Blind Chicken Solution".
Reasoning that chickens blinded by “accident” have been developed into a strain of laboratory chickens that don’t mind being crowded together as much as normal chickens do. As a result, he argues, we should consider using blind chickens in food production as a solution to the problem of overcrowding in the poultry industry. He argues that it would be more humane to have blind chickens than ones that can see.
I can hear PETA organizations take a break from their nude celebrity photography campaigns to vomit.
Overwhelmingly I am just speechless...
