If we stopped eating animals, we’d be overrun with them, and THAT would be a disaster for the environment! It’s a disaster for the environment now. We don’t have to imagine some future where there is an overpopulation of these animals. We already have an overpopulation crisis — now!
We’re already overrun with chickens and pigs and turkeys and cattle. The only difference is that in this real scenario, all of the animals are hidden in cages, windowless buildings, transport trucks, and slaughterhouses. In the hypothetical scenario, they’re running around on the streets.
And the ONLY reason this hypothetical scenario is as frightening as it is — billions of terrified animals running around — is because there are BILLIONS of terrified animals are confined at this very moment. THAT’s scary enough.
The concern about them “ESCAPING” wouldn’t be a concern if we weren’t imprisoning BILLIONS OF THEM now. Once we stop artificially inseminating these domesticated animals (i.e. stop eating them day in and day out!), there will be fewer of them.
We shouldn’t be afraid of a hypothetical dystopian future! We should be afraid of our very real dystopian present. Sooo…for everyone contributing to that…you know what you need to do!
