WAS FRANKLIN REALLY A VEGETARIAN? HOW LONG?

I'm a vegetarian - I think there's a strong possibility, had I not become a vegetarian, I would not be working now. I became a vegetarian about 25 years ago, and I did it out of concern for animals. But I immediately began having more energy and feeling better -Bob Barker

"Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own." Robert Louis Stevenson (novelist and poet)
.
"To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime." Romain Rolland, author, Nobel Prize 1915

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vegan#Philosophical_foundations

WIKIQUOTE: Tom Regan, professor emeritus of philosophy at North Carolina State University, argues that animals are entities which possess "inherent value"[47] and therefore have "basic moral rights," and that the principal moral right they possess is "the right to respectful treatment."[48] Regan additionally argues that animals have a "basic moral right not to be harmed," which can be overridden only when the individual's right not to be harmed is "morally outweighed" by "other valid moral principles."[49][50] From this "rights view," Regan argues that "animal agriculture, as we know it, is unjust" even when animals are raised "humanely."[46][51] Regan argues against various justifications for eating meat including that "animal flesh is tasty," that it is "habit" for "individuals and as a culture", that it is "convenient," that "meat is nutritious," that there is an obligation to the economic interests of farmers or to the economic interests of a country, or that "farm animals are legal property," and finds that all fail to treat animals with the respect due to them by their basic rights.[52] Regan therefore argues that "those who support current animal agriculture by purchasing meat have a moral obligation to stop doing so" and that "the individual has a duty to lead a vegetarian way of life."[53]

Gary L. Francione, professor of Law at Rutgers School of Law-Newark, argues that animals are sentient, and that this is sufficient to grant them moral consideration.[54] Francione argues that "all sentient beings should have at least one right—the right not to be treated as property" and that there is "no moral justification for using nonhumans for our purposes."[54] Francione further argues that adopting veganism should be regarded as the "baseline" action taken by people concerned with animal rights.[54]

Peter Singer, professor of bioethics at Princeton, argues that there is "no moral justification" for refusing to take sentient animal suffering into consideration in ethical decisions.[55] Singer argues that an animal's interests warrant equal consideration with the interests of humans, and that not doing so is "speciesist."[55] Based upon his evaluation of these interests, Singer argues that "our use of animals for food becomes questionable—especially when animal flesh is a luxury rather than a necessity."[56] Singer does not contend that killing animals is always wrong, but that from a practical standpoint it is "better to reject altogether the killing of animals for food, unless one must do so to survive."[57] Singer therefore advocates both veganism and improved conditions for farm animals as practical means to reduce animal suffering.[58][59][60]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slaughterhouse#Animal_welfare_concerns

WIKIQUOTE:

Animal welfare concerns

For her book Slaughterhouse, Gail Eisnitz, chief investigator for the Humane Farming Association (HFA), interviewed slaughterhouse workers in the U.S. who say that, because of the speed with which they are required to work, animals are routinely skinned while apparently alive, and still blinking, kicking, and shrieking. Eisnitz argues that this is not only cruel to the animals, but also dangerous for the human workers, as cows weighing several thousands of pounds thrashing around in pain are likely to kick out and debilitate anyone working near them.[12]

According to the HFA, Eiznitz interviewed slaughterhouse workers representing over two million hours of experience, who, without exception, told her that they have beaten, strangled, boiled, and dismembered animals alive, or have failed to report those who do. The workers described the effects the violence has had on their personal lives, with several admitting to being physically abusive or taking to alcohol and other drugs.[13]

The HFA alleges that workers are required to kill up to 1,100 hogs an hour, and end up taking their frustration out on the animals.[13] Eisnitz interviewed one worker, who had worked in ten slaughterhouses, about pig production. He told her:
“ Hogs get stressed out pretty easy. If you prod them too much, they have heart attacks. If you get a hog in the chute that's had the shit prodded out of him and has a heart attack or refuses to move, you take a meat hook and hook it into his bunghole. You try to do this by clipping the hipbone. Then you drag him backwards. You're dragging these hogs alive, and a lot of times the meat hook rips out of the bunghole. I've seen hams — thighs — completely ripped open. I've also seen intestines come out. If the hog collapses near the front of the chute, you shove the meat hook into his cheek and drag him forward.[14] ”
It is observed that animals lose weight when stressed and meat loses taste quality. This does motivate companies to try to control the stress levels of animals as much as possible.[citation needed]

:UN-WIKIQUOTE


Have MERCY
HUMAN RIGHTS: How can you have rights unless animals have rights? You are an animal (Great Ape). Law is supposed to represent Truth and Justice, what is Right. Eating meat was once thought of as necessary, but we now know that it is not, in fact its unhealthy ref "The China Study". So WHY does this barbaric cruelty and torture continue? Have we firmly established the existence of the Living Hell that Man has created and goes on daily? Perhaps you are not aware of what goes on in a slaughter house? maybe you have missed some details? turned a blind eye, and maybe there is worse things you didn't know? MERCY It's your responsibility to be aware of your own karmic intake (what you eat). If you knowingly accept stolen goods, you can be held liable; if you knowingly participate in a food system of cruelty and torture, you are liable. Eventually (the soon the better), The Law must admit, that you do not have the right to eat animals like you do, and you must stop.

PSYCHOLOGY OF EATING MEAT: TAKING HOSTAGES

Man has taken Animals as a Hostage. Man says "I want to live forever; but someday we all die; so unless God grants me Eternal Life, I will cause suffering in cruelty and death to others". Like a kid "unless you give me a donut, I am going to hold my breath and turn blue". Or like a Terrorist "Unless you give me what I want, I am taking hostages"; like it’s really going to help. Is it going to help? Not in the long run. If Eternal Life is possible, that’s not the way to gain it, and it isn't going to be gained that way.

Lower IQ people or "not as intelligent as others", use Meat as a Self Defense mechanism, saying "I don't care if the animals suffers for my dinner, I want the animal to suffer, maybe I should kill it myself, to show you and everyone how dangerous and cruel I am, then you will all fear me and respect me and give me everything I want, ha ha ha". (no one is going to attack him, he is dangerous, go take advantage of someone else). They take hostages in order to protect themselves, but does it help protect one’s self to take a hostage? No.

"The Hermetica" The Lost Wisdom of the Pharaohs, Translated by Freke & Gandy, Written by the Egyptian sage Hermes, Writings attributed to Thoth 3000 BC, a translation from 6000 BC, pg 137 CHAPTER XVIII:
"The inexorable working of destiny, imposed on man by the turning of the Zodiac, subjects all human beings to the pain of birth and death. Man's problem is that in his ignorance he believes himself to be just a body, one that will grow old, suffer and eventually die. His sense of injustice at the inevitability of this fate leads him to hurt himself and others, either through lust for more life or fear of approaching death. These crimes serve further to bind the soul to the body and so increase man's suffering."

"When about 16 Years of Age, I happen'd to meet with a Book written by one Tryon, recommending a Vegetable Diet. I determined to go into it.... My refusing to eat Flesh occasioned an inconveniency, and I was frequently chid for my singularity...." -BEN FRANKLIN Chapter 1 "The Autobiography" E302.6F7A2 ONLINE VERSION also available (now more directly at) http://www.earlyamerica.com/lives/franklin/chapt1/index.html a bit further than 3/4 of the page down.

Make Meat Illegal Worldwide (non-retroactive)


Make Meat Illegal Worldwide (non-retroactive)
United Nations "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" 1948
(World Law) http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml
I suggest Articles 4 & 5 should be amended to include animals:
Article 4. No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
Article 5. No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Make Meat Illegal Worldwide (non-retroactive)
Restaurants can serve rice, beans, pasta, veggies, fruit. Former Butchers can help process other foods, Cowboys will still be needed for spaying and neutering animals, probably best to be certified. We have plenty of food, the animals are all stuffed, we can feed them less and use the surplus to help starving people, here and around the globe (thru the United Nations) which we already do, even more surplus to help more people, and thats the kind of American Reputation we want, the Good Guys.

For my part I rather wonder both by what accident and in what state of soul or mind the first man did so, touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead creature, he who set forth tables of dead, stale bodies and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his taste, which made contact with the sores of others and sucked juices and serums from mortal wounds?" Plutarch (essayist and biographer)
