I used to think the reason I didn't get on well with people was my shyness and misunderstanding of social cues. That's part of the problem. But I've recently realized that, like many introverts, I'm also an arrogant ass. So I was being serious. Although not all introverts are like that so maybe I shouldn't have said most.
Maybe living in their heads too much,making them pay less attention to what’s around them, is what makes them come across as aloof and conceited. ...not sure if you're being serious or playing devil's advocate.
I live in South Africa. The drone stuff pops up as well but not as much. Most of the stuff we hear is related to Africa. So its mostly about extremists in Nigeria. In my opinion, the drones are just as bad if not worse than what suicide bombers do.
Geez, you took that personally. I was being an asshole though. Bad day. But i stand by my point though. I agree with you that the meat industry needs to be worked on (can't think of a better word) but what I don't agree with is looking down on people or saying they "deserve all the trouble in the world" because they buy meat products. Its hypocrisy. Because we're all in some way contributing to businesses with unethical behavior. Also, if you think of the wide use of animal products, I'm sure you'll find you're supporting the meat industry as well. Rather than attack peoples morals (I did as well and I apologize) attack the issue, because no one has any moral high ground to stand on. By your logic, we all deserve all the trouble in the world.
Its annoying how SOME vegetarians like to feel morally superior because they don't eat meat. Meanwhile they wear clothes made in sweatshops in China. Or jewelry that funds civil wars. Or eat fruit picked by wage slaves in a 3rd world country. Dont forget about all the deforestation that takes place to plant the crops we eat. Thousands of animals are left homeless or die just for your salad. You should think about that the next time you stand on your pedestal and preach about how meat eaters deserve to be criticized for our food choice. Also, humans are omnivores. Therefore there can be nothing morally wrong with doing something we are built to do.
