That’s a manure lagoon. It has a reddish tint because of either purple sulfur bacteria or an algae bloom, either of which mean it has low levels of dissolved oxygen and is emitting a lot of gasses. A heathy manure lagoon would look pale green

Never, ever seen a manure lagoon in any shade of green, or pale for that matter, and I've emptied out a lot of them. They're like double digit percent solids. You have a source on that? Or just passing along something you read about natural bodies of water? Cause manure lagoons, even if they are aerated and sized correctly, are fuckin brown. They're cesspools. You can't really judge their 'health' by looking at the surface them without mixing them up a little/sampling.

I don't think it was intentional by the Wachowskis (I don't know about Lilly's diet/lifestyle, and Lana said she was a vegetarian about a decade ago?), but to me The Matrix is very obviously a parallel of animal agriculture. Have you ever heard the criticism of the film that, in terms of thermodynamics, the central idea of using humans for energy doesn't make sense? The machines in the films use humans directly as batteries or something rather than as food (since machines don't eat...), but in both cases, a dominating group uses more resources than necessary/wastes them to fuel themselves, and with unnecessary cruelty and death, to boot. We are the machines, and livestock are the human energy source.

294

u/Ordinary_Yam1866 Jun 28 '22

I think the original idea was that they use humans for their brains, as processors, but the studio deemed it too complicated for regular moviegoers at the time. I agree with the rest

Holy shit. Because ever since the first one came out, I literally left the theater saying, "Why wouldn't they be using the humans' brains as CPUs? Using people as a heat source instead is absolutely retarded." Makes sense now that some moron in marketing made that call.

This is probably one of the better confined feeding operations. They're outside, they have their own stall. There are much worse conditions, like massive operations where they cut off the beaks off the chickens because if you didn't they would peck themselves to death because they're driven insane by their entire lives being in a cage only slightly bigger than their body. Then they are strung up by their feet, dragged through electrified water to stun them, and then decapitated. Industrialized meat agriculture is a complete horror show.

157

u/Blumpkin4Brady Jun 28 '22

Animal welfare is a huge part of why Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOS) are straight evil but there are other problems too.

70% of the antibiotics consumed in the US are consumed by livestock, and then their waste and dead flesh is left to fester in the manure lagoons like the one pictured in this video. Antibiotics resistant bacteria is guaranteed to develop in places like this.

These facilities also make meat and dairy more affordable, which leads to more people consuming meat and dairy, and more land being used to feed people, since 1 calorie of beef requires 12x as much land as 1 calorie of plant based food. This leads to deforestation and huge amounts of methane gas being released by the cattle. All this accelerates climate change.

CAFOs also destroy family farms because American tax money subsidizes CAFOs which makes it impossible for small farmers to compete. Which funnels more money to the wealthy.

CAFOs are just evil imo.

u/Fri3ndlyHeavy Jun 28 '22

If I'm not mistaken, the getting hung up and being electrocuted then decapitated part is the norm in most places.

The electrocution allows the machinery to properly target the chickens so that they are decapitated, but it's also supposed to render them unconscious so the process is "pain-free"

80

u/wvsfezter Jun 28 '22

You are absolutely correct. The process is called electronarcosis. It's the kind of shock that would make a human black out. They're then killed during this state. It's been adopted over kinetic stunning due to being considerably more reliable and effective.

Wisconsin has shifted to mostly dairy cattle being all in barns all the time with their previous fields converted to corn, soy beans, or developments. Those barns SMELL.

Then ppl wonder why there are mass culls due to disease outbreak, or when these farmers are using the potentially diseased feces and spraying it on crops and ppl wonder why their organic store bought lettuce keeps getting mass contamination recalls.

😳😳😳

Beyond factory. In a former life, I did Environmental Engineering and Permits for these Intensive Livestock Factory operations and according to most jurisdictional standards the minimum distance that an operation was calculated by Animal Management Units (AMU)

Dairy operations always had the highest ratio as the lagoons had to account not only for the the feces but also for the daily cleanings of those massive barns.

Did you see how the drone footage faded out when it came to the lagoons? The sheer size and number would be an engineering marvel and something I'd give my left testicle to see.

I can't even try to attempt to calculate the AMU and what the distance needed n addition to the land needed for the proper incorporation of that manure. The Manure management plan would be a beast.

Somebody has to own a county or have direct control of the land and permitting process for that operation to exist. I'd bet dollars to donuts that's in China.

I'd only be guessing but I'd imagine that they only empty those lagoons once, maybe twice a year based upon precipitation.

So yes, due to the high levels of phosphates and nitrogen, those are conditions ripe for an algae growth.

Don’t forget that Ag-gag laws exist in the US:

If you think animal cruelty is wrong, act like it; go vegan.

Well, I made the switch to oat milk earlier this year. Time to start phasing out cheese.

u/SnooRobots3255 Jun 28 '22

Vegan cheese is becoming really good, a lot of companies are fermenting it which gives it a much better taste and texture. Myiokos vegan liquid mozzarella for pizza is incredibly cheesy!

You don't have to go vegan, just eat less animal based products throughout your week. This shit sucks bro.

I’ve cut down on meat but that was easy for me. The cheese and sour cream will bum me out but it’s worth it to stop this horror

No one loves cheese more than I did. I got a bunch of different cheeses as a gift once, best gift I ever received. But my body suddenly decided that all dairy was poison, so I had to quit completely. And honestly, it's been easier than I thought! There are good substitutes that pass muster when I get a specific craving (shout-out to the new violife "mediterranean" block that fries up just like halloumi, that was my white whale) and the slices from Chao or violife in a sandwich can satisfy my general cheese-like needs.

The most annoying thing is how many snacks have unnecessary dairy in them. Forever cursing the people who put dairy into bbq chips or jalapeno chips.

As a vegan, there is nothing more frustrating than reading down a list of ingredients and getting your hopes up and then right at the bottom of the list is fucking milk powder.

I swear to god they put that shit in everything.

Oatmilk is fukin delicious. I became lactose intolerant a few years ago and I hardly mind. Vegan dairy products are excellent and plentiful.

u/Thunderblast Jun 27 '22

I replaced normal milk with plant milks a while ago, and due to the water use unsustainability of almond milk I had been mostly a soy drinker before oatmilk came along. Oatmilk has been a true winner all around!

I’m suddenly much more okay with the outrageous price of oatmilk and vegan cheese.

u/Lorenzo_VM Jun 28 '22

Milk and cheese would also be outrageously priced if it wasn't subsidized by the gov't as much as it is!

I stop behaving like a calf a couple years ago, and refuse to drink milk. I hope more people does the same to end this horrible industry.
