There will likely be a great human die-off at some point in the near future. This has happened a few times in history already, with the Black Plague (bubonic), the Great Freeze of 1740, WW1, the Spanish Flu of 1918, and WW2. Times afterwards were quite prosperous, most recently in Germany and Japan.Alias wrote: ↑May 30th, 2019, 6:58 pmDemand has never made anything ethical.
Whichever bad action 'gives rise' whichever other bad action, both remain bad.
There is no ethical by-product of an unethical industry.
And you can pollution, deforestation, energy consumption and CO2 to the unethical byproducts.
And maybe chemical and psychological damage to the workers in those industries.
They're already widespread. Successful enough for the beef industry to start suing over the names.Whether artificial plant-based meat substitutes will ever become widespread and popular I do not know.

And lab-grown real meat is becoming easier to produce, and more factories, world-wide are producing it.

Pretty soon, it will cheaper than raising and killing animals, as well as safer and healthier.
Legal is, again, not synonymous with ethical.For now, hunting is ok in certain states like Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Oregon, Washington State, Oklahoma, Virginia, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. But as human crowding gets worse, hunting will become rare and expensive just like in Europe today. So ultimately my favorite game meats will become out of the question.
The near future is likely to be very grim in all sorts of ways.I am glad I do not live in the future. It will be a very crowded and different kind of place.
The distant future might be better.
During a die-off it is common to see cannibalism. Russia during WW1 and WW2 has already experienced this.
Times after the coming die-off should be better too.
I will be long gone by then, I hope.
