    Could You Slaughter Your Own Meat?

    If you were completely self-sufficient with cattle, sheep and chickens, could you actually kill your stock when required to eat meat?

    There's no way I could raise it from a baby and not be totally attached and in love with it.

    Cattle are exactly that, Cattle. If you were a farmer you would understand that and have no qualms about it.
    I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind - that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overcome by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking.

    ...that no discovery of fact, however trivial, can be wholly useless to the race, and that no trumpeting of falsehood, however virtuous in intent, can be anything but vicious.

    ...that all government is evil, in that all government must necessarily make war upon liberty...

    ...that the evidence for immortality is no better than the evidence of witches, and deserves no more respect.

    ...in the complete freedom of thought and speech...

    ...in the capacity of man to conquer his world, and to find out what it is made of, and how it is run.

    ...in the reality of progress.

    I - But the whole thing, after all, may be put very simply. I believe that it is better to tell the truth than to lie...to be free than to be a slave...to know than be ignorant.

    Absolutely. As a man who has shot, killed, cleaned and cooked his own game, I could do it with ease. The key is not pretending they are pets before dinner time.

    When I was a young lad, my parents raised horses (not for eating, of course) and poultry. They grew their own vegetables, too. It was during this time that they aquired a young female hog. This hog they had for months, and got quite large. My mother made the mistake of befriending this hog as her pet and companion during her yard and garden work. Well, the time came and this hog had to be slaughtered. She made my father take it somewhere and have it slaughtered, and when he returned with the meat, she refused to eat it and she cried for the rest of the night!

    Moral lesson? They're food, not pets!

    Sure I could do it. I've helped some friends before with their seasonal Deer and cleaned many-fish that I've caught.

    It's not my favorite thing in the world but if it needs to be done, then so be it.

    I could do it, but would prefer not to do it myself as long as someone else is available to do it for me. It's a messy, smelly and unpleasant task.
