Epsilon Theory’s Latest: ‘The Pecking Order’

"It’s the way their brains are hard-wired, and it works for them, as a species. So I pretend that chickens aren’t evil and I’m not complicit. Because I really like the eggs."

The following is brand new by Ben Hunt, as published over at the excellent Epsilon Theory.   You can also follow Ben on Twitter here ****************** Out of all the animals we keep on our “farm”, chickens are the only ones that bring me no joy. Chickens are, by nature, brutal and cruel. They will torture the weak to death with their pecks, not because they have to, but because they can. It’s the way their brains are hard-wired, and it works for them, as a species. So I pretend that chickens aren’t evil and I’m not complicit. Because I really like the eggs. We are trained and told that the pecking order is not a real and brutal thing in the human species. This is a lie. It is an intentional lie, one that we pretend isn’t evil and where we are not complicit. Because we really like the eggs. And that’s the news from Lake Wobegon, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average. ― Garrison Keillor   We can’t all be rich.

    Excellent. Stopped chasing the carrot along time ago. Found myself unemployed and then underemployed but rich beyond words. And happy too.

  3. I used to raise poultry. It was a useful exercise in many things not the least of which was getting blood on your hands. As an experiment, I made the effort to LOOK into the eyes of every hen that I beheaded. Changed my life…
