News from the Natural World: Animals are nostalgic for the good old days when humans were still hunter-gatherers.
All animals that inhabit the earth have unanimously declared that they have had enough of modern humans. The constant destruction of the natural world, climate change, industrialisation of the meat industry and putting bananas in plastic packaging was just the beginning. In addition to this obliteration of nature, the human population has absolutely skyrocketed beyond belief. There were just billions of the buggers. The ever increasing homo sapiens had pushed all the other animals to the brink. The animals were all in agreement. If only they could go back to the good old days when humans were hunter-gatherers.
Thousands of years ago humans lived in hunter-gatherer societies in which most or all food was obtained by foraging. Foraging is the collecting of wild plants and hunting of wild animals. Humans lived in this way for hundreds of thousands of years, hunting, moving, migrating and spreading across the globe. The animals said that the odds were far more even back in the day. The animals could run or attack, they at least had a chance in the wild. But then followed the invention of agriculture and the hunter-gatherers who did not change were conquered by farming or pastoralist groups in most parts of the world. The humans began to leave their nomadic hunter-gatherer life behind and settled down to pursue agriculture. Finally, they had decided to tend to their future gardens.
Animals nostalgic for the good old days
This pursuit of agriculture has spiralled into the destruction we see before us today. Billions of domesticated animals are raised in horrific conditions. They are caged and humiliated. Some never see sunlight nor venture outside into the light of the world. 7 billion male chickens are killed every year. In addition, more than 200 million animals are killed for food around the world every day – just on land. Including wild-caught and farmed fishes, we get a total closer to 3 billion animals killed daily. That comes out to 72 billion land animals and over 1.2 trillion aquatic animals killed for food around the world every year. Furthermore, they needed extra space for all the restaurants where you can eat tortured meat.
Frankly we animals have HAD ENOUGH. We managed to interview a number of animals, Horace the Horse said it was “Much better to be shot with an arrow whilst out for your morning stroll than to be tortured in a cage for years and then slaughtered in some giant machine.” Raymundo the Rabbit agreed “we had much better odds back in the day, nowadays we’re born, open our eyes and we’re already in a factory with no way out and no escape.”
In fact we managed to interview every single species on the planet and they were all in agreement. All animals are nostalgic for the good old days when humans were still hunter gatherers.
