NY Times - The end of meat is here
quote:

‘The end of meat is here’? Coronavirus has ‘kicked open the door’ to a vegetarian future, claims N.Y. Times op-ed


quote:

‘With the horror of pandemic pressing from behind, and the new questioning of what is essential, we can now see the door that was always there. As in a dream where our homes have rooms unknown to our waking selves, we can sense there is a better way of eating, a life closer to our values. On the other side is not something new, but something that calls from the past — a world in which farmers were not myths, tortured bodies were not food and the planet was not the bill at the end of the meal.’

"The combination of meat shortages and President Trump’s decision to order slaughterhouses open despite the protestations of endangered workers has inspired many Americans to consider just how essential meat is,” Foer wrote in his piece, which was published Thursday.

“Meat is embedded in our culture and personal histories in ways that matter too much, from the Thanksgiving turkey to the ballpark hot dog,” he acknowledged. “Meat comes with uniquely wonderful smells and tastes, with satisfactions that can almost feel like home itself.”

“At the very least it has forced us to look,” Foer wrote. “When it comes to a subject as inconvenient as meat, it is tempting to pretend unambiguous science is advocacy, to find solace in exceptions that could never be scaled and to speak about our world as if it were theoretical.”

There's just too much news/people creating news. There really isn't that much truly critical stuff for people to know and you have major news companies like the New York Times creating content like this because of it. The days of "the most trusted man in America" are done.

I swear NY journalists have no idea how the world actually works outside of New York, DC, LA, and San Fran.

Imagine how much of an insane narcissist you have to be to think like this

This is a word salad served up by an average writer who fancies themselves as Hemingway or Thompson. The bolded is also gay.

Odd that I could purchase wagyu steaks and brisket for this weekend during a massive shortage without issue and at the same market price I did six months ago.

More and more this is looking like this was just an experiment in social engineering in the guise of a pandemic.


Literally nothing they predicted has been as awful as their gloom and doom prognostications.
