  1. Not all slaughter houses use Temple’s technique so we have to be realists. Factory farming continues to be horrific. I think it’s insensitive to white wash people’s belief that this is harmful. I really admire Julia’s work and struggle with eating animal products, not because I "have too much time on their hands" but because I’m a caring human being.

    • You’re absolutely right! We have to be realists. I was not aware that I was whitewashing anything with regards to factory farming. To my mind, it takes an active role in not supporting those CAFO outfits specifically — not meat as a whole, but finding viable solutions. Sadly, many have simply rejected all animal product consumption instead of working on improving the system, when there are way better options. Avoiding without a viable solution has opened the floodgates for factory farming to do whatever it wants without scrutiny — until decades later people realized that small farmers, not CAFOs had been put out of business. It has also led to much confusion over what constitutes real food, leaving many people at a health disadvantage. Pasture farming and more sensible slaughter practices have raised the bar and shed light on what the corrupt meat industry would claim "couldn’t be done" (these stubborn industries always claim that there’s no way around whatever they do — we have corrupt farmers here too in Hawaii making such claims). It takes a certain sensitivity to realize that in the west most of us have 1st world problems and that our ability to focus on suffering of animals to the extent that we have taken it is quite a luxury compared to the struggle people face on every level developing nations. That is what I was referring to.
