"As often has Herman had witnesssed the slaughter of animals and fish,
he always had the same thought:
In their behaviour towards creatures,
all men were Nazis.
The smugness with which man could do
with other species as he pleased
exemplify the most extreme racist theories -
... the principle that might is right."
- Isaac Bashevis Singer -

If you haven't already, watch Earthling (1:35:28). It's not work safe and some images might cause some to lose your dinner, but the subject matter is not something to be ignored. And shouldn't be.

At the moment, the answer would be no. But I would not dismiss the possibility that I might and/or could in the future.

In the meantime, the very least I (or everyone) can do is continually educate oneself about where and how our food is being farmed and produced. Because by being ignorant and without information, we remain powerless.

Same same, its just very hard to change, my friend suggested slowly, she moved away from meats, only fish, then slowly.

As we said just now, my meals are mostly vegetables and carbs anyway, with some servings on chicken or pork, and fish. so its not as bad.
