What do you say to someone who isn't against eating meat if the animal lives a genuinely happy life?

Yeah totally agreed. Sometimes, when I’m driving, I remember that horses were the main transportation source.

The idea of forcing an animal to carry your luggage for hundreds of miles then killed once it can’t walk, was probably only stopped when cars became convenient.

The car was called a ‘horse-less carriage’ at first. If someone today demanded that we return to horses, they would be laughed at, not because we are morally advanced, but because people immediately have personal experiences of superior alternatives everywhere.

I think meat will probably be like horse-riding, sooner than later. Especially with lab grown meat... where you wouldn’t have to kill anything and you could add organic nutritional proteins way better than the healthiest grass-fed buffalo could.
