How would you feel people would feel knowing that they were ingesting contaminated foods? This was the case in the late 18th hundred and early 19th hundred many social and economic problems came to be in the United States. For example, one of the many problems that arose during these years were the sanitation conditions in the companies. To be more precise, food companies were getting away with many of the inspections the government would act on. Meat packing industries were becoming more unsafe everyday.
The savage Nazis let Jews does not manage themselves like humans, so the SS shouted at them when they were forced to go on the Death March. “Faster, you swine, you filthy sons of bitches! Why not” (Wiesel 81). Therefore, the SS hurried the Jews up and abused them with dirty words, which revealed that the Jews weren’t respected, so it showed they are treated as subhuman. Jews are put into cattle wagons by the SS, which is kind of a humiliation to those Jews.
Namit Arora in his article On Eating Animals denounces Americans’ everyday obliviousness towards the treatment of animals in slaughterhouses. With an accusatory tone Arora reaches out to meat-eating Americans that aren’t aware of the cruelty present in the meat industry. Furthermore, Arora writes to expose the hypocrisy of Americans who claim to be pro-animal despite their ignorance of the malice and the mistreatment of livestock in slaughterhouses. The context of this piece is the media’s reactions to cows escaping their doom and the modern day indifference of society toward the inhumanity of slaughterhouses. With grotesque imagery Arora compels the reader to realize their hypocritical ways by intending to provoke a sense of pity and guilt within them.
This is hardly the strongest evidence that meat processing and handling is an extremely flawed system. Animals are often killed inhumanely if they are unable to be used by the manufacturers because they do not want to have to go through the process of giving them to a farm. Another equally important issue is how painful the slaughtering process is for the animals. Within most slaughterhouses, “Hogs, unlike cattle, are dunked in tanks of hot water after they are stunned to soften the hides of skinning. As a result, a botched slaughter condemns some hogs to be scalded and drowned.
Employees at slaughterhouses need to be immediately stopped. Slaughterhouses that operate in inhumane, unsanitary, and careless, ways need to be shut down by the government. Slaughterhouses are inhumane in so many ways. In fact, calling them inhumane would be an understatement. Animals are hung upside down on shackles while a worker thrusts a long knife through their necks.
The family members have been working for the meat industries, and have learned all their schemes. They describe the many inhuman and gruesome things that occur in the factories. “…The beef had lain in vats full of chemicals, and mean with great forks speared it out and dumped into trucks, to be taken to the cooking room.” (Sinclair 69), the factories found ways to mix spoiled meat with regular meat to sell, one being the amount of different chemicals used to relieve of the stench. They also state that there were rat problems and when the rats die they were usually proceed with the rest of the meat. Even with the fact that the family knew the secrets behind the meat, there are forced to buy and consume the meat.
The Jungle exposed the way workers were treated in the meatpacking industry. It stated that they were exposed to filthy workplaces, in which the smell would be outrageous. They were forced to work through these smells for non-stop hours. In addition, the smell would come from the meat itself. The smell would bring in rodents, such as rats, into the factories.
Large conglomerates such as Proctor and Gamble manipulate the law for their own profit just to make another washing up liquid with a new name that has some point burned out the eyes of a tiny abused animal. How can you ignore this? Sadistic companies that prey on the weak and defenceless animals treat them like objects, things that they can control and manipulate for their own benefit. Well I ask you know to join me, take a stand and give them a taste of their own poison. This week join up to the ‘Voice for Animals’ protest march in London.
The 3Rs can be implemented at an individual and communal level; at home, work and elsewhere. Reduce The less you get or have and use, the amount that ends up as trash will be less; this is the first R – Reduce.Buying or getting too many things is never a good idea because some of them are going to be useless and will be just be there collecting dust. Money you spend on such things that will not be of use to you, that you canspend on more worthy purposes or things. As a consumer, you can influence shops to help in
I agree with Zinczenko’s arguments about society taking on responsibility for their own actions. We blame the companies for the lack of self control and choices we make. If we did not consumed the items they sell then they would stop selling them. We have turned into a society that sues very one over our own choices in life. Zinczenko’s introduces the objection of knowledge and self control by saying “we know better than to eat two meals a day”.
