Everything is taking: Eating animals. But also eating plants. Also breathing. It cannot be separated. Everything is a taking of that what is animate present. Only important is to know this. To say: „Eating animals is wrong. Eating plants is right!“ leads to nothing true. If one is aware that eating animals, eating plants, …breathing…. are on the same level beyond right and wrong, because this taking is subject to a natural order, then – yes then – one can decide for the meat renunciation. Because one appreciates the animals. Or believes it benefits health. Or for other reasons. – And one can decide for the meat consumption. Because it is good for your health. Or for other reasons. But not because one is more right than the other.Do not misunderstand: The merciless treatment of animals (and also plants) by modern humans can justifiably be called soulless. The way of the modern agriculture and mass animal husbandry is not subject to any eternal truth and is not to be justified with the above said in any way. It represents a desecration of these beings for the purpose to be able to abuse them as material machines. But this corresponds also to the treatment of the people in this society. There is no significant difference there.Only also from this the taking as a principle of our (or all) existence is not touched. The one has nothing to do with the other.
