The Future of Animal Farming is an Epic Fail


It is a fact that a huge portion of people in this world eat meat. Since eating meat has been incorporated in our culture, history and some would even refer to ancient texts where snakes talk and it is fine to sell your daughter for slavery.


Are Brainless Chickens the Solution to Animal Cruelty?

In this article, the “artist” wants to address the inhumane ways how factory and industrial farming treat animals. Every single day there are millions of animals that are slaughtered in order to satiate our taste buds.
Unfortunately the artist has failed tragically since despite the chicken not feeling a thing if it dies, cruelty in its sense is more on someone’s spiritual level. The lack of it would make you think of intricate inventions on how to give in to your desires without having to deal with their guilt. Just a sophisticated way to alleviate the burden of a conscience which have achieved nothing but the same thing as the old ways of farming.

Even if the chicken cannot feel or know that it’s going to die, it cannot gloss over the fact that it’s still cruel. Taking a life no matter how you do it, whether the doomed recipient feels, know, sees it or not, and whether you do it with an injection or a pillow, is immoral. Taking away the rights of an animal, in this case the chicken, to live a life naturally is in its sense, is still ultimately cruel, let alone removing its brain and keeping it in an induced coma.

Removing a chicken’s brain and putting it into a state of coma until slaughter day is nothing more than an intricate and discreet manner of cruelty and violence, and will never justify their deaths.

Not to mention that it’s still quite cheaper, easier, convenient and sustainable to just plant vegetables.
People need to demand more vegetables in order for the supplies to make a sudden turn. Vegetables are by far still healthier and better for the human diet.

Then again, if people really cared and has compassion for animals, they would stop stuffing their mouths with meat.
I won’t be surprised if this “installation” would be the future of farming because people today are nothing more than whores of novelty, the commoners today are so enamored with something new that they would embrace it even in such a promiscuous way and despite the fact that it can bring more harm than good.

Watch this film if you really want to know about the things you stuff in your mouth

We must make the choice to eat well. Do not be herded by what commercial food manufacturers are telling you to eat. If we start making the right choices and demands, the rest will follow. :)

    2. The artwork proves that the modern person will do anything to eat meat. Just by eating meat means you vote for any sort of animal farming, whether it's cruel or inhumane.

  5. Should we go for Halal foods then. If it's farm animal that's okay. As long as not double murdered animals and askal, pusa or ahas for food consumption ibang usapan na yan.

  6. Eating meat is part of our everyday living na and we must admit not all of us eat veggies specially and mostly kids which is shame cos its more healthy pero cgru in a way na makakain ang anak or pamilya mo in easier way by buying meat then you should go for whats easy diba? There are lots of nutrients din naman na makukuha sa meat. I am against animal cruelty but I cant afford to stop eating meat.

    1. Easy and convenient doesn't always translate to it being right or justified.
      It's your call whether you want to be like everybody else.

    1. Unfortunately, not all meat can be taken from "poultry" and taking meat is quite subjective.

  10. I don't like what I am seeing on the first picture. But to each his own naman. Though I still eat meat (not as much as I used to), pictures like that may give a wrong impression to others.

    just my f/2.

    1. Most people are too weak to have decision and commitment so they grab whatever they can, what is easy, what is convenient - even if it means taking lives.
