i wouldnt be able to survive without meat. but for a few days? no big deal. i can happily eat pasta, cereal, fruits and veges. but after a few days i just need a big piece of steak or chicken.
is it shitty? yes. is it going to change? no.
same goes for everything. slaves make the material things we consumers purchase, the oil that powers transportation and industry is poached from the middle east, you name it. nothing is fair. if you want it to be, go out and shoot a deer and use all of it with little waste.
