culture blind, by Cynical Coyote

As children we didn’t know. We didn’t know that the piece of meat on our plate was once a living being with their own desire for life, or that the milk we sipped on belonged to a mother’s child. Our parents were never taught by their parents the reality of what is served on our dinner tables. And neither did theirs. A cycle of culture then begins. A cycle of habits and customs which cause us indifference and ignorance, which in turn leads us to not learning the truth. We have to break free from what we’ve been taught, we have to strip away the lies of society and unlearn the false information passed on from generation to generation. We must take the blindfolds off to evolve as a collective.
