Years ago, as kids, we went on a field trip to a dairy plant to see how milk was bottled – didn’t see any cows, or the milking of the cows, just milk in large metal containers being processed. Looking back it was something the dairy industry instigated to keep us drinking four glasses a milk every day.

In recent years, there’s been a movement toward involving kids in the growing and harvesting of vegetables for the purpose of making them more interested in buying, preparing and hopefully eating their veggies. What kid or adult who grows their own veggies wouldn’t want to eat them?

Not as common, but still on the upswing, are school projects involving the raising of a lamb from birth to slaughter alongside the garden project. This, of course, is promoted by the slaughter industries to further indoctrinate children with impressionable minds into accepting and eating what they raised from birth – an animal – and to do it in a learning environment surrounded by people they trust and love – their parents and teachers. Sounds to me like McDonald’s ads are no longer enough to keep our children lovin’ it.

These settings are highly manipulative in an effort to force-feed our children knowledge based on an economic agenda, rather than exploring the pros and cons of raising anybody for the purpose of killing them for food, medical and military and product-testing experimentation or for entertainment. Issues regarding prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter are issues that most humans regard as being relevant to only the human animal. In other words, we don’t want our children thinking on their own; we want to do their thinking for them.

If parents and teachers want their children to have a learning experience about raising non-human animals for slaughter, then take them on a field trip to a factory farm followed up by a trip to the processing plant aka slaughterhouse. That way they can really learn something about the reality on the ground, and not be mind-washed by those with economic agendas.

Addicting children to the blood and flesh and addicting them to the process of murder is perverse and damaging to the children, the non-human animals they will continue to feed on, and the planet.

Adults can’t even see the inside of a slaughterhouse unless working there undercover to expose the lies that the slaughter industries in tandem with government and religions are force-feeding the populace.

If murdering animals for any purpose is okay, then anyone should be able to tour these sites to decide for themselves what they want to have on their plate or not.

Until American citizens are able to witness – through an eyes-on experience for learning purposes – whether those animals are indeed ‘happy animals’ or if they’re saturated in terror, abuse and pain, there can be no true learning.

The myth that government, religion, school and parents perpetuate, regarding those we slaughter for profit and gain will come back to them in the form of a fundamental distrust of family, church, state and education institutions, when our children finally see and hear the truth behind their collective lies.

Individuals are waking up all over the planet to the lies they’ve been force-fed by all these institutions and they are definitely not lovin’ it. Wouldn’t it be better to be honest from the start?

Teach our children truth, not lies. Children can handle the truth. It’s the adults who can’t.
