What is writing good for? At the very least, the articulation of one’s free-floating inner moral compass. To translate the feeling sense into a comprehended form.
Opportunity abounds to do so. For example, @ regulations.gov, there is opportunity to leave public comment on various proposed matters of legislative oversight. I recently left my following two cents regarding further deregulation of Swine Inspection, to the Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Here’s my attempt to write what my heart and head commiserate to communicate:
To make the speed of slaughter even faster would be an affront to all the hard working people who’ve already suffered injuries and disability due to the untenable demands of profit above all. Further, just because humans can abuse and misuse our animal brethren does not mean we should. Surprise us all, and choose the humane route. Put worker safety and animal sentience into consideration, and cease the morally corrupt deregulation of kill speeds.
