Why Meat is the Best Worst Thing in the World
Hello Kurzgesagt! I love your video and have been subbed for over 6mo. I was wondering, you did a couple videos about what a portion of the immune system is and how it attacks bacteria and viruses. Could you do a 2-3 part video that explains the entire complicated process? I think it would be very interesting how the entire things work! Is there any research out there that is finding new ways to attack bac/viruses in ways our immune system doesn't, or ways to fight with/train our immune system? That would be really interesting to know!
This channel is getting even more ridiculous and stupid. First the video about god and now this??. Eating meat is not the problem, mgmt and mindset are. This channel is like been written by hippie and losers.
you vegans apparently believe that we meat eaters should be scared of cruelty. it is because you are city people with no balls. as children we never missed the show of the pork being murdered. the yard dog always got the dick of the pig which was incredibly long once dismembered from the body and the good dog was soo happy to take that cock in his mouth and run somewhere to eat that big fat chunk of meat, followed by the cats hoping to get some. the whole place was smeared in blood but blood wasn't wasted because it was good for sausages and black pudding. killing chicken wasn't even a deal, guests at home meant a whole poultry holocaust to feed everybody. we all were and are hunters, no greater pleasure than seeing that your rifle or gun shot downed that bird or popped open the skull of a boar, in short there are a hell of a lot of people who really laugh at you and your delicate feelings about beasts. go to Africa, go to Asia, go tell a central Africa or Mongolian herdman that killing his animals is bad and see if anyone will listen to your bullshit or make laughing stock of you. because you vegans are buffoons and nothing more.
those videos and articles about how meat is produced just make me hungry, also on a serious note I think the best way might be to use bugs such as crickets, beetles, etc. and replace our current meats with them
If we stop eating meat and drinking milk what would happen to the animals will we just throw them into the wilderness and let them die, put then in shelters? There are millions of animals so we can't put them in shelters because there's to many animals. So what would happen to the animals we would have to kill them and then throw the meat away. So should we eat meat? Answer that vegans.
don't worry guys, i'll go vegan once meat becomes illegal. sure killing animals is a bad thing but if i go vegan now, some fatass american will get to eat my share of meat too. so hey, they're already dead so might as well don't waste it.
Very disappointing video. You have lost all your reputation for me ( I’ve been following you for years btw). While all of your videos have a message, this, the most important one ( this is about life and death) has no bold message... for people’s desires, living creatures are being slaughtered and you are saying: eat chicken instead... shame on you.
I love Kurzgesagt! I really do. You make awesome videos. I have to say that so you know I'm not some crazy vegan. That said, I found some problems with your video. There's a lot I love too. Kudos for taking a stand on meat. And I understand some of what I say has already been commented. In that case, I'm seconding it. The facts about the environmental and cruel hazards were great. And I understand you are trying to sway carnists who might be on the fence of eating less meat but using words like "tasty parts", "steak is amazing" "burgers are the best food" and "chicken wings taste great" doesn't need to be said. Meat eaters already know they like meat. That addiction is the problem. And those statements just verify why people eat meat and it veers far from the objective truths you usually stick to. And meat isn't what brings people together. It's food. Vegans come together over food too. Again, this strays from objective facts that you're known for. I understand that you can't tell people to go vegan because there are levels of thoughtful eating. Organic meat is less bad than nonorganic and chicken is less destructive than beef. But I think suggesting no meat as a choice. Meatless day is a minor step and no meat is a bigger one. Choices. You mention lab meat which isn't even a choice yet when there is plant-based food that has been around since the dawn of time.
When suggesting a trusted meat purveyor, you're contradicting the point you made earlier about people trying to cheat the system with organic products. I thought about only eating organic meat and realized how untrustworthy it was and what little difference it made to the animals, the planet and my health so it was easier to opt out. You also left out heart disease and its ties to meat. Very important. And describing this as part of our complicated world, I think, will lead people to think they can't do anything, it's hopeless and it's out of their hands. It's also odd to say meat is "sort of a horrible torture" after admitting it's "extremely unsustainable". It's a horrible torture. You described it perfectly earlier in the video. "Enjoy your steak but respect it. Make it something special again." Again, this seems like you're appeasing people who don't want to think about their food choices and letting them off the hook. I'm all for opting out of meat as a small step but telling people to enjoy it is unnecessary. They already do. And respect it? It's dead tissue from an animal. Failing to respect life and the pain animals go through but respecting the meat from its death makes no sense. To sum up this long rant (sorry), I'd like to again say I appreciate the information you provided. I think it will reach meat eaters much better than a staunch vegan would. I just wish the language was less wishy-washy, subjective and equivocating. I'd like to know your thoughts if anyone at Kurzgesagt even reads this. (1 out of 56,000 comments wow!) Thanks for all the videos!
I don't understand how so many people write in the comments "Now I understand why people become vegan"
Please don't understand me wrong, I don't want to sound arrogant, but I kinda thought that the arguments in the video were not new knowledge. (Or maybe I should say if people at some point seen a documentary, discussed with a vegan their diet or in any way dealt with the topic)
And just for the record, no, I am not a vegan. I eat meat regularly, though I reduced my weekly meat consume to a minimum and if I can, only buy meat from small farmers.
The comments just show in my eyes, that the people who wrote them never before considered these arguments for themselves before they were brought up to them by this video.
Which shows another thing that I observed on my countless times and years spending in social networks: that people seem to be less contend to consider more than the side they think is right and instead take everything personal and don't regard the arguments and views from the front they are drawn up controversially.
You are more on the left side of politics? Oh, you are a lefttard, snowflake and SJW. You are on the right side? You must be automatically a Nazi and bad human. You are a vegan? Pff, you only want to seem like a better human being "cruelty free". You are a meat eater? How dare you, you are a murderer.
Under this video I read so many rude comments towards vegans and condescending comments towards meat eaters.
Can't we just all take a step back and to each other, consider the arguments of the other side, be polite even if we don't agree with their views and remember that behind every anonymous channel name is a real human being.
If you read so far, thanks for the attention and have a lovely day.
Can't give up meat (third world issue) I wish they'll invest more in lab meat, the efficiency would mean it'll be cheap and it'll be very ethical, I think people especially in poor countries would get into it in a heart beat.
No good either. Worldwide fish 'supplies' are heavily depleted already and bycatch kills far too many great animals such as whales, sharks, turtles, dolphins, etc... Of course there's also fishing farms, but this again requires land to grow crops to feed to the fish.
It's sickening to think some fat ugly guy or some famous porn fucktard women to have raped my meat with diseases.. where's normal "differ" society when you need them? Like villager life, fire tribes and shit like that.. where's good people on thisa earth gone to.. Cringetown in Edgeyworld??
