I start to be a vegetarian again – fresco who eats vegetable, eggs, dairy products, fish.
I am so proud of myself that I decide to do it again. In my plan, I am going to do it permanently.
Last week, I finally watched Okja through Netflix. After watching Okja, I could remind about the cruelty of human society. This movie discloses the real cruelty of humans. It alerts me again.
I love ideology of modern society – Democracy. But at the same time, I feel a little bit skeptical about consumption and capitalism in this society. It is being massive and global. It has developed rapidly. I could see how it is being different from the past. I could see how it would be different. But sometimes it is too much…
One of its “too much” part matches with “why I am being fresco.”
Why I don’t want to eat meet, it comes from the rebellion to factory farm. I hate people who consider animals as consumer goods.
Yes, I admit that we are living in food-chained ecological society. But we don’t have the right to raise them in the 1-inch foot space and kill them mercilessly.
We all share Earth together. We should coexist together. We can share the benefit from them but shouldn’t take it away from them. We are not a thief. That is my opinion.
It would be the message that this movie wants to share with people also.
At least, I want to coexist with them.
Even though we have hunted other animals from the prehistoric era. But we didn’t do it like modern society.
After industrialization, there are a bunch of system of factorial farm made the life of animal meaningless. They take it without any guilty and sometimes enjoy it.
People are being proud about their expensive leather bag and eating marbled meat in high price.
Now it is being imprudent, thoughtless.. I hate this stream.
We should be alert about this social trend when we are being cruel and cross the line to our ecological system. Because we merely have the superior position in ecological system, we have a right about genocide to animals.
It could be exaggerated but in my opinion, what we do to animal is not different with invasion of colony and killing the native ruthlessly in the time of imperialism, genocide of Jewish people in World war 2, Japaneses medical experiment with living body to colonial people called Maruta.
We know we did many wrong thing when we had a low knowledge and foundation of the law of human right. There has still genocide and violation of human right. But we have progressed than that time.
At least, we should appreciate them.
Currently, there is a trend called minimalism. I love this trend. We should be skeptical about this consuming society and re-think about what do “consumption”&”capitalism” mean. Minimalism is “we should lessen our unnecessary consumption.”
I totally agree with it. So last week, I joined flee market and sold my not wearing clothes. It was sold in one hour 😀 I think I am perfect sales person. It is almost sold-out in one hour even the clothes were about 30-40 pieces.
Anyway, in this society, we need a break for consuming trend society which is running like a express train. WE NEED A BREAK.
