Facebook Founder Slaughters Animals
May 31, 2011
And I think it’s awesome!
I don’t much care about Marc Zuckerberg. I have some issues with Facebook. I didn’t see The Social Network.
But reading this article gave me a newfound respect for Zuckerberg. He does challenges, just like me! This year he’s only eating meat that he’s killed himself – lobster, chicken, and goats so far. While I haven’t taken on the kill-your-own-animals challenge, I wouldn’t be opposed to it, since I do want to live on my own sustainable farm someday, and I also think that the healthiest way of living is for people to be physically connected to their food sources. Here’s a quote from Zuckerberg:
A bunch of people told me that even though they loved eating pork, they really didn’t want to think about the fact that the pig used to be alive. That just seemed irresponsible to me. I don’t have an issue with anything people choose to eat, but I do think they should take responsibility and be thankful for what they eat rather than trying to ignore where it came from.
My thoughts exactly. Be a carnivore, be a vegetarian, be a vegan, but be aware of the reality of your choices, and make them consciously.
