Seeing crows eating roadkill is beautiful; roadkill is not. There is something beautiful in the natural-the crow scavenging and the mammal not dying in vain. There is nothing natural, however, about cars and thus roadkill. Technology is not natural. Aboriginal peoples hunting and and farming/foragingy is not a disturbing image. Modern day peoples eating cows and pigs and chickens etc who were born and bred and lived long enough only to profit for consumption-when there are totally viable options for heathy diets on plants alone-that's disturbing (run on sentence I know). Plants feeling or sensing does not negate the horror that is perpetuated in omnivorous culture. It is not natural, it has evolved into something sinister. Because it is so engrained in the culture it feels natural, but it wasn't over night that farming became horrific. The insidious nature of regulations and demands on "products" (animals who love and feel just as much as dogs and cats) has created an idea that we still have happy cows who willingly give milk- not thinking about how the cow was impregnated-and if they wait around for her to be ready and willing she won't be so profitable so it's forced (rape) then the milk is taken. It was for the baby, so the baby is taken too. That baby will either die in a few days or a few years. This is repeated till she can't handle it and then she's impregnated one last time and sent to slaughter (more product that way). Then she's eaten. The remains of these animals, ligaments/tendons/bones/eyeballs/anus/etc ends up in pet food, candy, marshmallows, car oils, etc. that is not natural. If you value one species life but would take another's (they can not consent so..) then you are speciesist. Take time and think. Nature is light and dark yes; is this dark the natural? Or is it something else in masquerade?
