Zombie Nation by x-vegan-x Zombie Nation by x-vegan-x
Did you know that 250,000 children die every week from starvation and disease?
Did you know that a 10% reduction in meat intake would leave enough grain to feed these children?
Did you know that meat and dairy production is the second biggest polluter on the planet, only second to cars?
Did you know animals scream and cry while they're shackeld upside down, ready to be prepared for your tastebuds?
Do you know how it feels to be electrocuted and skinned alive?

No-one gives a shit, because thinking is just too hard. Welcome to the zombie nation, where shoes and lipstick are simply more important than starving children. And tastebuds are more important than life. Never mind that we're screwing the planet, as long as I'M fine and my clothes look nice, and I have a full belly. Then everything is fine.

The endless sale of anything and everything is making our generations into selfish, apathetic people. This continuous stream of capitalist ideology is the biggest polluter - of people's minds.

It's astonishing how selfish we have become, in a society where the focus is solely on ourselves and the amount of possessions we can surround ourself with. When the truth is, happiness will never come from any of these things. While people are convinced to want needless objects, they will never be happy.

There is so much more to be concerned about than when the next issue of Heat magazine comes out. Like the fact that people die unncessarily every second - because the actions of EVERY ONE of us affect the entire planet.

So lets all get drunk and watch tv, consume this and that, then consume some more. Oh and don't forget to consume a bit more in the morning, too. No-one will notice because they're all mindless zombies too.

Just to add: The tv sets represent how everyone has adopted the materialistic and shallow values of capitalism - buy, buy buy and don't give a damn about anything else. It demonstrates how the majority of people just don't think anymore - tv does that for them!

Heh, I grew up in a completely different environment; shooting animals and eating meat every night to be able to do it again the next day. I've been to abattoirs and livestock enclosures and I can assure you that they lead a happy life of consumerism and gluttony themselves before being painlessly executed themselves with a quick air pressure bolt through their head. By God, I sometimes feel pity when I look into their eyes, but then I remember what happens when we set them free in Australia: cats and dogs endangering native birds and rodents, pigs and rabbits laying our landscape bear. It appears we have different opinions.

ignorance is bliss, why would they want to open their eyes and see the hell they hae doomed themselves to? it is far easier not to try. because thats what matters in todays mind.convenience.i bet if we substituted plastic bottles for aluminum cans we would save alot.aluminum is worth money so people would have a reason (other than saving the world!) to recycle. this would cut down on plastic pollution and waste and increase recycling and stimulation of the economy. but noone will listen. for ignorance is bliss.

Something must be done to stop this. People should open their eyes. But they simply dont want to.

This society is a fucking failure.
Whats the point of living in it anyway?

A person is smart. But many people together are so stupid.

We are killing everyting we touch.

We will suffer the consequences.

What goes around comes around, and the world will have its revenge ^^

Oh well...

We might aswell sit here and wait.

Very powerful image. It's sad because it's true. Well done.

(Side note: After reading the comments on cattle farms and such, I just want to recommend that anyone who hasn't should watch "The Corporation". It's kind of slow moving in some places, but it gets the point across quite nicely.)
