A few lines of a great book by a French journalist: Aymeric Caron
I’ll try to translate it the best I can:
Because in a near future the choice to become vegetarian, the choice of 15 billion men and women, won’t be really a choice. It will be dictated by necessity. We will stop eating animals, because we won’t have the possibility to meet the growing demand of meat, especially because of the population explosion; then because we will have to give up to a hyper-productive farming system that is poisoning more than nourishing us. Repeated health crisis, one of these days, will have repercussions that today we are striving to deny. In the next centuries, the individual consumption of meat will strongly decrease. At the same time morals and ethics will bring us to study in depth our present incoherence towards animals: some become our dearest and best friends, we put others in prison (sometimes even the same ones), we become attached to them, we ignore them, we humanize them, we convert them into objects, we recognise their intelligence, we make them suffer, we cuddle them, we eat them … or not.
