Same Planet... Different Worlds

Scenario 1:
the great outdoors

I had mixed feelings about hunting from the start. I like the outdoors and being alone in the bush. A summer job tree planting near White River was enjoyable as much for its solitude as anything else. I liked the idea of taking up one of my father’s pastimes.

I believe anyone who eats meat should probably confront the fact that an animal is killed so they can do so. And I know most hunted animals have a better life and death than commercially raised and slaughtered livestock.

I also like eating venison.
Scenario 2:
dirty, smelly hippies
Occupiers gathered around the edge of the garbage truck to lambaste city officials. “That’s why we don’t like public officials, because you do stuff like this,” one man shouted.

Other protesters were arguing with police, accusing them of unjustly "destroying our home" and "propping up a corrupt system." Others were beating a drum and chanting “we occupy” and “make the rich pay.”

Protesters had been shouting at police, with a spontaneous chant erupting of “Whose park? Our park.”

I believe anyone who eats bean sprouts should probably confront the fact that they are eating the aborted fetus of the bean plant and committing genocide on the bean plant colony.

Well said, Fred. If the occupiers were dropped off in a remote place where they had to survive by their own effort and craft they would hunt or die. The survivors would return with a new perspective on entitlement.

"dollops says... the occupiers were dropped off in a remote place"

you mean, like... more than half a mile away from the nearest welfare office or methadone clinic?
