These people remind of the two communist farmers who were criticizing
capitalism. One said that if he had two tractors (forgetting that
capitalism makes the best tractors) he would give his farmer comrade one,
upon which the other replied that if he had two cows, he would give the
"Good comrade", the other said and then asked "If you had two pigs would
you give me one?"
"Like hang", the other said. "I've got two pigs and I'm keeping them."
Good "capitalists" do a lot of good with sponsorships. research, etc.
Without it we would no be using computers or the Net. But not all of
anything is all good.
I've noticed that many of those who eat no meat or animal products are
often pasty and inactive. Some have to take vitamin B12 to overcome
anaemia. Again there are exceptions, as in everything.
The three points we must remember are -
1. People are all different and not all will eat meat, for a variety of
reasons, so live and let live.
2. If the good do nothing, bad will win.
The bad I'm referring to are those who make wrong statements about meat,
milk, etc. They must be corrected.
3. Those in animal production should keep their industry clean and pure.
Visiting SOME (NOT ALL) dairy, veal and poultry farms, slaughter houses,
etc., is enough to put one off animal products. Others are excellent.
Best wishes to you all for a very happy Christmas & a wonderful 1997, with
many more to come and thank you for your input.
