After the Internet came along, and all the related technologies with it, including handheld devices with cameras, the famous words of Dr. Seuss “Oh, the places you’ll go” took on a whole new meaning.
Now that small drones topped off with video cameras are readily available to anyone, we are beginning to see things we’d prefer not to. At the same time, watching unbelievable videos helps us better understand how the real world operates.
Modern mega-farming practices have been widely criticized, and now we have a video showing us why. Of course, the feces and urine of pigs and people have to go somewhere, but consuming meat “grown” under these conditions, with animals living their lives confined in cages and being pumped full of antibiotics and growth hormones, is the point of such criticisms.
