  • good morning john let's have this conversation if someone is that is when

  • I have a really tough conversations on Viper those let's let's take the girls

  • face it head on

  • John I have a problem and its name as me to get this out of the way there's

  • definitely some conflict going on between the vegetarians vegans of the

  • world and the rest of the world and talk about why I think that is in this video

  • and I'm gonna start with the fact that vegetarians are right

  • yes animals raised for food do not have nice lives and even if they did they

  • would still be killed in the prime of their lives so that I could have a tasty

  • snack yes the amount of food eaten by animals who will later be eaten is

  • massive and so as more people eat meat more land has to be put under

  • cultivation has massively to climate change and are a primary reason for

  • deforestation yes most people don't need to eat meat to be healthy and their

  • reasons both ways like more than a billion people make at least some of

  • their living from livestock you don't take all of those people's livelihoods

  • way all of us as the global population grows as the global economy grows it is

  • very difficult to argue that vegetarianism is not a good thing the

  • important thing here is vegetarianism allows more people to have more food

  • with less impact it's good and so when someone tells me that I should be a

  • vegetarian early to comment on the video is asking me how do i justify eating

  • meat I have no recourse but to say that they are right and that I am wrong but

  • that I will continue eating meat because I'm the kind of person who has a hard

  • time controlling myself and it's hard enough not to eat a half a bag of Oreos

  • for breakfast my personal power side there's a fundamental conflict going on

  • here I live in a society we're eating meat is normal and being a vegetarian is

  • not its montana you guys like there are places in America where vegetarianism is

  • very normal this is not one but there's a difference between acting in

  • accordance with society's expectations which will very rarely get you

  • criticized and he's definitely the easy thing to do and actually living in a way

  • that is best for the future and for people and for all of the organisms on

  • the planet and that's the reality of meeting it is a thing that I don't need

  • to do but I do despite the fact that it makes the world worse for her and

  • animals and future people the big one for our society but there are lots of

  • examples of this like I've always found it a little bit immoral that I spend

  • money on things that are not necessary like

  • cola and flying to San Francisco when that fifth ticket to the force of

  • weekends when there are people dying of preventable diseases I do those things

  • instead of giving the money to save the children for the same reasons that I eat

  • meat because it's easier and simpler I like them and I'm not perfect but also

  • more than that like acting in accordance with society to a certain extent isn't

  • just the easy thing to do it's also kind of the only thing to do

  • experience this you can only do so much breaking with culture before you become

  • extremely uncomfortable it's very hard to find

  • self-worth it's very hard to find connection

  • imagine if every time I saw someone by a coca-cola like mumbled under my breath

  • you know there are people dying of preventable diseases I would not have a

  • lot of friends budgetary and because they have the audacity to work extremely

  • hard to live in accordance with their values because those values conflict

  • with the values of society at large

  • don't want to be told that the way that they live their lives in the things that

  • they enjoy are making the world let's go especially when you got other stuff to

  • worry about as frustrating as I'm sure both sides can find this at times this

  • cultural conflict is not a bad thing I honestly believe that we're on our way

  • to a better brighter future and two hundred years from now people will think

  • it's ridiculous that we ate meat the way that we do there's no reason not to

  • appreciate vegetarians for working very hard to live in accordance with their

  • values I completely understand the desire to convert me and other people to

  • their cause to have us eat less or no me too I am thankful for you all the people

  • who tell me to not eat meat and yet I'm going to continue eating less but not no

  • meat because it's easier it's simple I like it and I'm not perfect

  • John I'll see you on Tuesday

good morning john let's have this conversation if someone is that is when
