very innocent compassion gesture from innocent child - spirit to spirit no bs just pure compassion. !!!

There is a saying that if kids were taught (in their very early age) where food comes from, they would prefer to be a vegetarian.

I don't think that's specific to kids, although kids do need to be 'taught' things. But everyone would be vegetarian if they 'thought' about where their food comes from. Trouble is, people like to cr

There is a saying that if kids were taught (in their very early age) where food comes from, they would prefer to be a vegetarian.

Trouble is, people like to create a distance between the source and how their food (meat) ended up on the supermarket shelf and ultimately their dinner plate. They like to imagine Walmart has this wonderfully clean state of the art laboratory where meat is magically manufactured and packaged ready to be shipped off to the supermarket shelf. In truth though they know where it actually comes from but because they don't like to think about it they like to create a massive distance whereby someone else does the killing and butchering....out of sight, out of mind. You have to question then, the value in eating something that makes one feel so uncomfortable that you need someone else to get their hands dirty on your behalf in order to source it for you...out of sight, out of mind.

But, the reality is that 30 years from now our children will be having this exact same discussion about the way we (their mothers and fathers) drank milk. i.e the way we closed our eyes and pretended we just didn't see or know about the extreme cruelty involved in sourcing that milk. As everyone knows, the animals such as the one in the picture above, that get slaughtered, are the lucky ones. The ones that have to suffer endless perpetual cruelty (no doubt wishing they would be slaughtered and their suffering ended) are the ones that have to provide you with that glass of milk.

In 2016 we're still nswering questions about meat and our ignorant parents.

And so...in 2024....How are you going to answer questions about milk and our ignorant selfs ?

The post was specifically in accordance to the pic in the op. Generally, small kids are more compassionate in comparison to kids in older ages such teenage.

You don't need a brain to have a conscious level.

That is not the same as 'feeling things'. Plants don't register emotions, or pain (the things that are meant by feelings), they just react to stimuli. It is so distant a comparison, and so basic a process (comparatively), that it does not merit nehkeval's original comparison to animals.
