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.
We can’t all be famous.
We can’t all be Someone Who Matters to the World.
