    And i fell for it

    I love it.
    I especially enjoy the parts where vegans and vegetarians break down over the meat and start sobbing whilst others are quite chuffed with themselves

    It can quite hard to tell what's actually restricted, to be honest, but most of what is is just common sense. You can't hunt a protected species, you can't hunt animals that are owned by someone else, you can't go after deer with a sub-machine gun.

    Lol, I'm vegetarian, and it that's not my way. When I lived on my auntie's farm in Cupar, she used to strip the chickens down in front of the house, and it didn't really bother me. Live and let live, I say.

    And what massive state intervention?
    That inherent from the very beginning in capitalism. Ever heard of primitive accumulation or enclosures?

    Did you know that in the US heavy trucks cause almost 100% of road-bed damage but they pay for less than 50% of road up-keep. This encourages business consolidation, larger plants and supply chains as it subsidises distrubution. The intervention goes on and on. In 1976 for instance congress' own report found that direct subsidies to industry totaled more than all corporate profits. There is little reason to believe much has changed.

    It's something I can imagine my family doing if we ever went hunting. We're from the West Coast.

    I don't understand vegetarians and i think vegans are just weird tbh.

    Why would you deny yourself meat? The lovely, juicy ... okay lets get off the topic of food. I am getting hungry

    Meh, i've killed animals before in Africa. Nothing touchy about it there, you are expected to do it.

    I don't think it's wrong to eat meat per se, but the conditions that the average farm animal in Britain are kept in are horrible, and I don't really want to be part of a system like that, so I don't eat meat. The only thing I really miss about being a meat eater is going fishing. I never ate the fish, but I don't feel entitled to fish now, as a vegetarian. That and stovies and Lorne sausage and cock-a-leekie soup and mince with neeps...

    Damn you Laila!

    Personally I'm inclined to agree with you.

    Would you consider eating free range and organic meat and meat products?
