Thank you, yarrow dreamer, timeless and heyvictor for your support.
Yarrow dreamer, what I meant by the "civilized people don't kill animals" is that they don't do it as part of their everyday activity. Sure they may do it as a job, though even that segment is reltively small and different, but that job stops when they go home. They don't carry that on into their everyday lives - it is just a way of making money, and so it is different, it is not even really about killing the animals, it is just about doing a job. At least that is my sense, are your feelings different?
I totally agree that hunting is better for all involved, but it is so much harder, and I mean that not physically or at least not just physically. For me at least, I would have to break out of the everything is an object mindset, which I have done mostly, but it's still there, hanging around subconciously, and I fear that if I go into hunting with that mindset it will be worse in soem ways than getting meat from the supermarket. Maybe that is just fear, I don't know.
Thanks for the stories of hunting heyvictor, I understand the value and beuty of it, I think, as much as an 'outsider' can.
Timeless, I feel like, I don't know, that's a good question. I just.... hmmm.. oh, shaca.
