we love cows.
most humans could not imagine life without cheese.
most of us grew up drinking cartons of milk as if it was water (in fact, I probably drank it more than water at times).
yogurt and fruit in the mornings is as commonplace as anything else for breakfast in modern western society.
yet, we use cows to speak negatively of each other (you fat, stupid cow), and play cow tipping, and that’s just the tip of the cowberg.
in fact, cows are one of the most abused living beings on this planet.
this helpless animal presents a great paradigm to learning more about modern society.
we love the products. we love what we can get from this being.
yet, we disdain or simply ignore the source itself.
how can this be sustainable and lasting?
how can we accept this as normal?
modern society has successfully dehumanized, desensitized ourselves from the planet we inhabit.
we stumble on, blind and disconnected.
but we thrive in our virtual lives as our physical environment erodes, becoming more and more abstract and unknown.
