I seriously don't understand why many people go into some sort of defensive mode with this article. And now there are people thinking that there is a "hidden meaning"?
Why Steve post this in the first place? I dunno, probably because of his intuition or something. Hey, look at the way he write about this vegan stuffs in the rest of his articles and his book, this kind of article is bound to come up sooner or later.
But seriously, why do you need to have emotional reaction to those useless creature anyway? I mean, if they were to be suddenly freed and have complete freedom, what will they do? Nothing important, in fact, they might make the planet suffer. Might as well turn them into edible stuffs for the people who want to eat them.
Do I have the same view toward human? Exactly. I wish I have the power to take the lives of those useless human. So many rotten people that should leave this planet alone. Or at the very least, force them into some sort of labour or something. Nazis are kind of cool, but I think they target the wrong set of people.
