Youth > Maturity
« on: November 01, 2022, 02:23:05 am »
A child overhears an advertisement in the car for lamb, realizes where meat comes from, and his response is both predictable and understandable for someone who has a significant amount of their original nobility still intact:

This is by no means a unique occurrence. It reminds me of another of my favorite videos where a similar thing happens:

The tendency to view non-human life as an exploitable resource for humanity is a uniquely mature attitude. All vegans should refrain from labeling carnists as "immature" for how they treat vegans and veganism. It's unfortunately common, and belittles the kinds of children that you see in these two videos. Most children see this as a black and white issue ("I want to keep the animals alive!"). It's only when we become callous as we age that we begin to accept statements like "That's just how things are in nature".

Sidenote to the topic of youth over maturity: The saying "Youth is wasted on the young" has got to be one of the greatest perversions of the truth that I've ever heard

So I guess vegetarians don't get a pass either, eh?
When in doubt, use the 16 Words: 'We must Engineer the Destruction of Western Civilization and Tribalism, and Unite All Races Through Nobility.'

Aryan ≠ 'White'.

History is Written by the Victors.

He Who Controls the Past Controls the Future; He Who Controls the Present Controls the Past.

Children motivated by morality rather than social norms when it comes to question of eating animals, according to study https://phys.org/news/2022-11-children-morality-social-norms-animals.html

“Adults, by contrast, tend to use social-based reasoning to justify the consumption of meat, citing that it is "natural" and "necessary" to do so—although they too will lean upon moral considerations if they take the counter view.”

“ This new insight into the relative prioritization of moral concerns regarding animals builds upon research published earlier this year that revealed how children think animals should be treated just as well, if not better than humans. This is a belief children may tend to lose during adolescence when they begin to develop a sense of moral hierarchy that gives different values to different animals.”

“In these cases, some of the children are saying it's 'okay' to eat animals but they're still expressing concern for animal welfare. You can see them wrestling with the moral dilemma in that reasoning. It may well be the case that many simply do not fully understand the connection between the animal, death and food.”

This is their original nobility is fighting back against their ancestry.
