Planned agronomy

Market-based agronomy is unsustainable, we need democratically planned agronomy. We need to drastically limit the amount of crops dedicated to feeding cattle.

We need national-scale veganism and multi-story farms. Subsidize veggies and mushrooms and tax meat and such. Also awareness campaigns for a balanced diet, and increase the comprehensiveness of nutrition facts information.

Noah Parker

You are right. A lot of people in my party romanticize traditional agriculture and especially raising cattle and sheep. It's totally reactionary, but it has somehow gotten stuck in their minds. I'm struggling to convince them how damaging it is to both social relations and ecology, but it is so engrained in them.

Kayden Turner
Kayden Turner

No amount of taxes, education, or even bans will be enough to stop the natural human desire for meat. All this will do is create black markets where meat is grown in even more unclean and inhumane environments. They will have to be re-engineered to be UNABLE To eat meat, and fortunately, there already exists a way to do this. The lone star tick's venom contains a protein called alpha-gal, which is a protein also found in all mammals EXCEPT for primates. When eaten it has no effect, but when injected directly into the bloodstream it can trigger an anti-gal immune response and create a feedback loop creating a meat allergy.

We need replicate this effect and inoculate everyone with alpha-gal to trigger the anti-gal immune response and make everyone allergic to meat. It would eliminate pork and beef consumption entirely with no need to worry about black markets because no one would be physically able to eat it. While this won't stop people from eating fish or birds, pork and beef are the worst environmental offenders so it would still be a vast improvement.

Imagine doing all of this instead of just investing a few years into clean meat/synthetic meat research in the mid-term and meat substitutes in the short-term, something that is entirely possible in our lifetimes.

Imagine how much we could achieve if nations like China, Russia, Germany, Japan, the US were actually socialist. Imagine a Manhattan Project for climate change technologies, like clean meat, urban farming, fusion energy and so on. It's all possible, it's just that we are powerless (as of now) in the face of the bourgeoisie…

Brody Martinez

Just about everything you need can be found in vegan food. Complete proteins for instance may be found in black beans and rice, and B12 from mushrooms and seaweed. It's a matter of research which the state will propagate the information of to consumers.

Do you actually think it's easier to engineer people to stop eating meat than to try to present alternatives?
The only problem is cultural. Technologically the problem is solved. The lone star tick can already do this, there are people out there RIGHT NOW who are allergic to meat because of its bite. It's a fairly simple mechanism that we already understand, but if replicating the allergic response is too hard we could literally just breed ticks and put them on people.

Although I agree with you, bringing up the evolution argument for either side is stupid. Humans are cognizant enough about diets to choose whatever they want to eat regardless of evolutionary history. We also still tend to have large incisors, which are remnants of primate evolution selecting for combat and dominance but we don't ALWAYS flash our teeth and fight for clan dominance like chimps do. That being said, vegans are aggressive assholes, and meat eaters are stingy pricks.

I didn't make that claim. I said the evolutionary argument is a stupid one to make considering the fact humans have ability to go against evolved characteristics. I'm sure the teeth thing is still in contention, but I would still argue that the evolved teeth we currently have isn't largely a result of diet alone, but rather clan dominance characteristics. Orangutans have large incisors but eat almost exclusively plant material. Chimps do hunt but still mostly eat plant material. I guess it not really either/or but a combination of both. I didn't claim you said to eat meat only…just stop using the evolution argument because both sides are stupid to do so.

We evolved to get the minimum amount of nutrition in order to reproduce and raise kids. Look at traditional hunter-gather africans, they're skinny as fuck and usually don't live into their 70s. What humans were able to scavenge and live off of for thousands of years is not necessarily optimal.

Humans and chimps are two different animals. They have enzymes that make a plant based diet optimal we don't have those.

The global population at current projected levels of growth and development is expected to peak at around 10 billion, and then start to decline as birth rates decrease. To sustain that level of meat consumption for which demand equal to that of western standards as economies develop, from livestock is literally impossible on our current trajectory. Do you realise how much of our water production + food production goes into farming livestock and how much arable land is dedicated to it? When you factor in how much arable land is going to be lost from climate change it is LITERALLY impossible to sustain our current levels of meat consumption, unless you're arguing for population controls (read: genocide) or just want to maintain your comfy western lifestyle and leave the third world to rot, in which case, you'd be a reactionary, as all mathusians and those kind of types are.

The production of livestock for western countries literally bleeds into the third world already, there are millions upon millions of acres of farmland in central + south america primarily for growing livestock that is sold + consumed in the first world. It doesn't work at scale when you have developing economies like China + India, with larger populations than anywhere in the first world, who are going to have much higher standards of living over the coming decades, which leads to consumption levels exponentially closer to that of the west. This means you need orders of magnitude greater arable land for both livestock + feed.

this ignores the amount of arable landed gained.
Which is significantly less than is lost, mostly in fucking Russia lmao, when you account for all factors.

Why its quite reactionary to push a bourgeois diet then!
What the fuck are you talking about nigger I'm not the other person arguing for enforced veganism, I'm saying that livestock consumption will be forced to go down because of real material factors related to capitalist development + climate change. Meanwhile all your arguments are denialism and deflection. I never fucking said anything about everyone on the planet needing to eat the same food. Are you retarded, you need biodiversity and it's not efficient to transport massive amounts of food across the globe to satisfy your autistic strawman about how we're going to force everyone to eat the same shit.

The production of livestock for western countries literally bleeds into the third world already, there are millions upon millions of acres of farmland in central + south america primarily for growing livestock that is sold + consumed in the first world. It doesn't work at scale when you have developing economies like China + India, with larger populations than anywhere in the first world, who are going to have much higher standards of living over the coming decades, which leads to consumption levels exponentially closer to that of the west. This means you need orders of magnitude greater arable land for both livestock + feed.
You only need more land if this people choose to adopt a meat based diet. The chinese basically survive on rice and tons of indians don't get cows so this is a none issue.

Which is significantly less than is lost, mostly in fucking Russia lmao, when you account for all factors.
Good you agree with me here.

What the fuck are you talking about nigger I'm not the other person arguing for enforced veganism, I'm saying that livestock consumption will be forced to go down because of real material factors related to capitalist development + climate change
ok well thats just some silly predictions.
Even if that is true it would most likely happen in third world countries before it gets to us.

Meanwhile all your arguments are denialism and deflection
I'm asking for evidence then denying your claims when you cannot provide me with such.

I never fucking said anything about everyone on the planet needing to eat the same food.
It seems that way, how else do you figure we use too much land for animals.
Are you retarded, you need biodiversity and it's not efficient to transport massive amounts of food across the globe to satisfy your autistic strawman about how we're going to force everyone to eat the same shit.
You literally just argued that it is impossible for everyone in the world to consume meat so now in the same post you're aguing that you didn't just make that argument. literally what .
Even just moving away from raising Cattle makes a massive fucking difference. I'm not a vegan, vegans are lifestylists who substitute liberal individualist ideology for politics. Plant based diet =/= veganism.
yeah agreed.

We need to drastically invest into things like Nuclear & Sustainable Energy, Advanced Agricultural technology, Lab grown food, etc if we ever even want to have a chance at engendering a Socialist Society, let alone a Communist one. The type of denialist bullshit you display is equally as disgusting as the "we're all fucked anyway" nihilism, just different sides of the same wretched liberalism.

They already are lol, the point is that meat consumption is already going up, and since you need 4x the amount of land for feed and an also more land to actually raise the animals it's significantly more resource intensive. You've got a point about Hindus + Cows to be fair though lmao.

Good you agree with me here.
So you're aware that it's a massive net loss then right? Agriculture in the Southern Hemisphere is going to be massively impacted, which is coincidentally, where most of the growth is happening, meaning a lot more people migrating into a much smaller landmass with less arable land. It won't be feasible for these places to import food and they need to invest massively in the things outlined in earlier posts.

ok well thats just some silly predictions.
Go and read any mainstream climate report, in fact, read the IPCC one, and then realise they're massively downplaying this with the most conservative estimates.

Even if that is true it would most likely happen in third world countries before it gets to us.

Is English not your first language? I said that the levels of consumption of meat that are seen in the west cannot be sustained on a global level, because they are too resource intensive, requiring too much water, food + land. Biodiversity is neccessary because you need to be able to maintain food sources in case of crop failure through drought, disease or a multitude of other factors.

I don't see how this is a probably, some people will end up not having meat. Big deal I'm not concerned with those people if civilization doesn't collapse we will find more efficient ways to meet demand why would we not?

Implying
Farm raising exists. The only reason farm-raising is considered bad currently is because of the methods used to keep costs down. You can mass-breed fish for consumption in proportionally far smaller areas than livestock and with far less resources. Also, sea-fishing is entirely still viable with set quotas and rotation fishing.
Only reason it isn't utilized now is the cost and the lack of investment compared to other operations. There is no reason it could not be implemented large scale, especially if both systems are kept a distance apart from each other.

Yeah, if you rely on shit "vegan science" which does not distinguish people eating meat from people eating meat from junk food. Include the latter into any statistical category and its going to fuck up the groups overall health statistics.
Look up fucking "vegan influencers" on youtube like Freelee. Vegans are so malnourished that they compensate their qualitative undernourishment with quantitative food intake: they eat excessive amounts of food. Freelee eats like 5 kgs of banana each day. It's fucking crazy and completely unsustainable.

Meat should unironically be reserved for pregnant women.
Your body literally can not function properly on a biological level if you don't consume meat, you absolute retard. Look up the dozens of ex-vegans coming out right now on Youtube.

You can't remove them completely with cooking only reduce the toxicity. The farting that follows eating beans is due to your guts being irritated by a fucking toxin. Consuming lectin leads to allergic reactions and nutritional deficiency.

Here's what happened with most of these "vegans"
1. They become vegan because it's trendy and cool, or because they saw a documentary once, or because it generates activity for their Youtube channel.
2. They did zero research and put in zero effort, and eventually become malnourished because they aren't eating balanced meals.
3. They give up because they never really cared about being vegan in the first place, and because they've never had to work for anything in their lives anyway.
4. The backlash generates a bunch of views and comments and channel activity, which then causes Youtube's algorithm to promote these videos.
5. You screenshot them and own the vegans epic style XD

Most of these people were vegans for 5+ years, some of them 10+. Most of them had balanced diets (whatever the fuck that means on an unbalanced diet like veganism), tried out different things to eat, went from cooked to raw vegan, tried fruit-based only, soy, etc. and took vitamins. The very reason they tried out different options while remaining vegan is the health issues all of them started experiencing. A lot of them went to doctors who insisted they should start eating meat again and refused only to let their health deteriorate even further.

The funniest thing is that when they started eating meat again they described how fast all of those skin, gut and psychological problems went away.

I just love how vegans automatically pull the "they weren't doing it properly" card. It really shows what a cult this is, those leaving for obvious medical problems viewed as betrayals or not-true-cult-members.

The closest thing to a proper fat source is avocado, one of the most unsustainable options out there.

Look at actual studies of plant-based diets. They're universally considered healthier than the standard diet.
nature.com/articles/nutd20173

Does that mean that it's the MOST healthy dietary choice? Probably not, unfortunately. As you said, we ARE omnivores. But it would be a vast improvement for most people, because most people eat like shit anyway.

tbh I think we can find a compromise position and just eat insects. Vegans that get hung up on the suffering of insects are autistic and no one likes them anyway, and you can get all your nutrition from insects so you don't have to worry about your gains. Sound fair?

Everything is healthier than the standard diet, because the standard diet is junk food.

I don't hold the same ethical standards towards animals as I do towards humans, therefore I have absolutely no problems with raising, killing, and eating animals. I'd love to try out insects, but they are no adequate substitute for proper meats, because most insect species are very low on B12, Retinol, and β-carotene, while being too high on fiber.

True, but the point stands. If veganism is necessary, we'll be able to survive with a reasonable quality of life.

I don't hold the same ethical standards towards animals as I do towards humans, therefore I have absolutely no problems with raising, killing, and eating animals.
That's fine, I don't either. I do think animals deserve more ethical concern than we currently give them, but my main concerns are related to the environment and labor.

Meat production at a scale needed to sustain 10 billion people is impossible without destroying the environment. It's too inefficient and creates too many negative externalities. I'm not even sure if we can feed everyone with a plant-based diet, let alone a diet where everyone eats as much meat as they want.

And someone has to slaughter our meat for us, and its probably the worst job on Earth. The people who have to perform industrial scale slaughter face numerous physical, psychological, and sociological damages that can not be fairly compensated. The levels of mental and physical illness caused by slaughterhouses can not be understated. I don't think there is a way to make the job humane for the humans performing it, and there's no place for slaughterhouses after the revolution.

Hunting and very small scale slaughter may be permitted, but industrial meat is not possible.

I'd love to try out insects, but they are no adequate substitute for proper meats, because most insect species are very low on B12, Retinol, and β-carotene, while being too high on fiber.
Not all insects are created equal, but mealworms specifically are very high in B12.

And uh, β-carotene comes from vegetables dude. Sweet potatoes, carrots, dark leafy greens, butternut squash, you know? And the body converts β-carotene to Rentinol on its own.

As for being "too much fiber", most people need more fiber anyway. They'd probably benefit.

Meat production at a scale needed to sustain 10 billion people is impossible without destroying the environment. It's too inefficient and creates too many negative externalities.
Here's an option for a global scale (since we are talking about extreme scenarios): adults who don't reproduce get to buy meat at normal prices, those who do at double the price for each child they have. Two problems at once.

muh PTSD from industrial slaughterhouses
This is the most ridiculous thing I've read in this thread. We've been slaughtering animals from the very beginning of our species, using much more primitive and inefficient, hence gorier means to do it. If anything we made slaughtering cleaner, faster, less gory and more efficient. To say that somehow the industrial scale is responsible for "psychological suffering" of the workers – and not the actual conditions of a workplace – is pure ideology. It is the most dishonest tactic on your part to pretend to be caring for your fellow humans while you are in fact only obsessed with animals and the perceived purity of your soul.

And by the way: not even the fucking gestapos had psychological problems and they were exterminating human beings on an industrial scale.

Pure. Fucking. Ideology.

most people need more fiber
No, they don't. In fact, the opposite.

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but it's the truth. Evil can be normalized, and it becomes banal and mundane very easily.

The thing about the psyche is that it is intimately connected to the dominant ideology. In other words there are no "objective" traumatizing factors (well, unless we are talking of bodily harm and the sort) like killing an animal or a fellow human being.

When you kill for your army you are awarded, when you kill as a civilian, punished. It's the same act of killing, yet triggers separate response from society and in your psyche. Thus there's nothing inherently traumatizing in slaughtering animals. You can make it seem problematic, sure, but that will be due to your political act, and not some kind of inherent or objective ethical standard "finally" surfacing.

We don't need to completely eliminate meat but it's pretty obvious that having an entire populace refuse to eat a meal if it's not 80% beef is just not sustainable.

Meat needs to be pushed back to its place of being a small but important part of a meal alongside a healthy mix of vegetables and fruit and some grains.

I don't approve of DSM categories.

Gitta Sereny makes the same point in her book “Into That Darkness,” about Franz Stangl, the commandant of Treblinka. The assignment to the SS was a promotion for the Austrian policeman. Stangl was not a sadist. He was soft-spoken and polite. He loved his wife and children very much. Unlike most Nazi camp officers, he did not take Jewish women as concubines. He was efficient and highly organized. He took pride in having received an official commendation as the “best camp commander in Poland.” Prisoners were simply objects. Goods. “That was my profession,” he said. “I enjoyed it. It fulfilled me. And yes, I was ambitious about that, I won’t deny it.” When Sereny asked Stangl how as a father he could kill children, he answered that he “rarely saw them as individuals. It was always a huge mass. … [T]hey were naked, packed together, running, being driven with whips. …” He later told Sereny that when he read about lemmings it reminded him of Treblinka.

Christopher Browning’s collection of essays, “The Path to Genocide,” notes that it was the “moderate,” “normal” bureaucrats, not the zealots, who made the Holocaust possible. Germaine Tillion pointed out “the tragic easiness [during the Holocaust] with which ‘decent’ people could become the most callous executioners without seeming to notice what was happening to them.” The Russian novelist Vasily Grossman in his book “Forever Flowing” observed that “the new state did not require holy apostles, fanatic, inspired builders, faithful, devout disciples. The new state did not even require servants — just clerks.”

You don't need to believe in every quackery to be critical about the DSM.
Even the American Psychological Association, the British Psychological Society, and the American Counseling Association had reluctences about the last edition.
The principal problem is see about it is the big gap between what it is, a simple imperfect tool, and how it is treated by the the health system: the bible whose diagnostics commends hospitalizations and treatment, insurance billing and FDA approval for new drugs.

We need national-scale veganism
No, we need to stay secular, there is a point about animal cruelty and CO2 emissions in food production, however we cannot bow to religions like veganism, if laboratory meat grown in vats also fixes the issues that that is acceptable to. There isn't going to be a social hierarchy based on what kind of food you eat.
No food-tribalism like fruit-tribe vs meat-tribe.

multi-story farms
Not possible with current technology,not even close. If You stack agriculture you'll have to ad artificial lights, we cannot even come close to that kind of electricity generation at present.

people in my party romanticize traditional agriculture and especially raising cattle and sheep
Well traditional animal farming was not very damaging to ecology. However it was brutally hard work for very little reward.

but it is so engrained in them.

I said they knew who to send to do what and you give me a guy who is a fucking sociopath (he sees his prisoners as OBJECTS, as GOODS) and the reason why you think he's just a normal guy is that he's soft-spoken and not a sadist, so not some frothing-at-the-mouth caricature of a madman
so if a serial killer is polite, soft-spoken and kill cleanly and quickly, he's just a regular guy
the second quote is vague as fuck, since a clerk doesn't actually physically kill anyone, and handling paper for a genocidal regime is morally easier for people than pulling a trigger in a camp (far from eyes, far from mind)

Idk why the fuck you're replying to me you lenin hat retard, I'm literally not a vegan and am not advocating for veganism (Veganism is a lifestylist political ideology that blames individuals for systemic problems and privileges animals over humans, all I'm arguing is that Climate Change is going to force us to drastically move away from Livestock Farming and likely towards things like Lab Grown Meat & Insects alongside more Plant-Based Diets). Both of you on the other hand are advocating for the genocide of the third world by proxy because of your weird fetishism against Veganism.

There is overwhelming evidence that without extreme ecological measures taken within the next 10 years that this is exactly what's going to happen. 1.5c of warming is already beyond our control, if we reach 2c or more then within the next 20 years then indicators are that we're going to be up shit creek.

This is on top of the looming global crisis that which will hit within the next 18 months and increasing interimperialist competition, which themselves will not only make these issues worse, but likely lead to massive war, famine & migration in many areas of the Global South.

The arab spring was a result of US imperialism.
What do you think opened the door to US destabilization efforts in the first place? You can find multiple sources indicating the initial tensions were from rising food prices caused by climate change impacting harvests, literally go and type in "Arab Spring Drought" into google. This was an absolute Dream of an opportunity for the CIA among others to ferment civil unrest, another tool in utility belt of Imperial Strategy in the Middle East.

Market-based agronomy is unsustainable, we need democratically planned agronomy. We need to drastically limit the amount of crops dedicated to feeding cattle.
Criticizes the market, suggests reducing beef production. Doesn't mention any other meat production. Doesn't mention Veganism. Yep, the OP is literally about veganism.

The meat question is pretty irrelevant. More importantly is to discuses how to achieve enough crop yield (for both human consumption and animal feed) while minimizing fossil fuel inputs to farming. Current agriculture relies heavily on fossil fuels for fertilizer, mechanization, and transport - it will not be sustainable in the future. We should study the examples of Cuba and DPRK as both countries have learned to make do with limited fossil fuels in agriculture.

Reducing meat consumption will help us achieve enough crop yield. Now obviously you're right in that this doesn't require full veganism, but largely plant-based diets aren't out of the question.

Personally, I think we should be experimenting with plant-fillers in meat products. For example if it's possible to make a ground beef/texturized protein mixture that was indistinguishable from pure beef, we could reduce the amount of meat consumption but still eat delicious hamburgers.

You know that there are vast parts of Australia and Africa that you can only use for food by grazing/hunting on because the native water sources were never very good or reliable to begin with and centuries of Eurasian-style farming have pushed them to the breaking point, right?

Also, conveniently, Australia has kangaroos, which can survive on basically no water and shitty Australian flora that's basically just starch and chlorophyll, are good eating, and produce almost no methane. It's just a pity that they can't be tamed or kept so the only option is to hunt them, something that has to be done because they have no natural predators left and would breed out of control otherwise, causing environmental collapse.

If we could effectively eliminate the methane production from cattle, could we still maintain some degree of meat production? In the long term I believe the only viable option for meat production is lab grown meat, but this could somewhat soften the transition. I'm also not sure about insects, since we should also be preserving them.

ok well I'm mainly considered with the not limiting the "drastically limit the amount of crops dedicated to feeding cattle" as per OP topic

The fact that you're even aware of the arable land that will be gained means that you've seen all the projected outcomes, by your own logic, where is the evidence that this land will be arable if we want to go down this route? Do you know anything about Soil Viability for regions that were previously trapped under layers of ice for example? We don't know exactly how much land we will gain or lose, but all realistic estimates point to there being a net land loss, and the fact that you've even accepted this framing means that you're fully aware of this,
A net loss if the climate weirdos are correct. However if it is correct we will lose some land and gain some more. No one can accurate predict what the crop viability will be in 2050 if some climate disaster happens

and are just choosing to ignore that which you think is inconvenient.
absolutely not
There has been evidence posted in this thread of all of this, if you're going to reject evidence because it's "speculative"
<makes claim
<has no evidence to back it up
<gets called out
<there is evidence! no I don't need evidence for my claim you do!
<there is evidence in this thread(just not in any of my posts)
ok bud.
And all predictions of what the earth's surface will look like in 2050 are by definition speculative

then you can't even make the argument that we'll gain arable land because that's speculative as well.
just as speculative as losing arable land :^) you can't have one without the other.

ok well I'm mainly considered with the not limiting the "drastically limit the amount of crops dedicated to feeding cattle" as per OP topic
Why? You said earlier in the thread that you agreed with that, why are you backpedalling now?

A net loss if the climate weirdos are correct. However if it is correct we will lose some land and gain some more. No one can accurate predict what the crop viability will be in 2050 if some climate disaster happens
If there is more evidence for an estimate of net loss than net gain, then why make an argument for net gain unless you were committed to being anti-scientific? You are denying climate change, just like you have earlier in the thread.

ok bud. And all predictions of what the earth's surface will look like in 2050 are by definition speculative
Why are you lying? There are links in this thread to evidence, you just ignored them and then are stating again and again there is no evidence.

>just as speculative as losing arable land :^) you can't have one without the other.
That's literally my point retard, you're not smart for saying "no u", you literally cannot argue as a counterpoint about speculation when you're only engaging in speculation yourself. I guess if no-one can predict the future how about you jump off the nearest cliff. After all, we don't know if you'll die, it's impossible to predict the future.

Like how you conveniently ignored the rest of the post, because you realise you got BTFO yet again, so you're not trying to move the goalposts and recentre the argument, just like you did with Veganism earlier.

it doesn't really matter if we have a net gain loss or stay the same production of grains for cattle is incredibly inefficient and loses 90% of captured energy in the process

perennial dry land legumes could completely replace cattle worldwide require no replanting once established and provide equal protein and better health outcomes while reducing carbon emissions from cows directly and in the incredibly wasteful supply chain of fertilize-transport-feed-slaughter. this is orders of magnitude gains in efficiency.

Cows don't eat corn, chickens don't eat corn, pigs don't eat corn,
my chickens are literally eating organic corn feed right now.

maize is one of the biggest subsidized products world wide. coca cola is practically entirely propped up as a multi billion dollar international conglomerate on corn syrup as a free tax payer subsidized waste product of the corn industry. GMO corn is bred for weight to increase price yields is packed with water and sugar and deficient in micro-nutrients. Corn meal, split corn, and corn mash are corn based pellets are fed to livestock causing malnutrition and cancers in these animals reducing the quality of the meat. Dairy cows, breeding pigs, and caged chickens dont graze.

The USG/USDA actually pays farmers to burn food, pays farmers to leave their fields empty to reduce supply to control prices, pays farmers to plant corn instead, clears forests and leases public land to private companies if they agree to plant corn, gives farmers free seed if they use privately owned seed, and so on

However if it is correct we will lose some land and gain some more.
"Gaining" land in Canada and Russia isn't actually all that valuable. The land is shitty and the growing season is inherently limited by the availability of sunlight, rather than just temperature. If we lose fertile crop land and gain sand and gravel that's dark half the year, we're still fucked.

Feeding cows with good corn ought to stop.
There are many different types of corn that are different sizes colors shapes textures dryness sweetness softness starch content protein and so on. this feeding cows "good corn" doesn't happen, corn that is not fit for human consumption is intentionally grown to subsidize mcdonalds, kfc, mountain dew, dunkin donuts, sugar cereal, hersheys, reeses, refined pastry, soft drinks, juice concentrates, milk cheese butter and dairy supply chains, thickening agents for soups canned goods baked goods cosmetics and hygiene products

all of this stems from WWII era subsidies with the rail/oil/steel teaming up with agriculture and cattle to capture the whole chain of human reproduction, produce cheap protein at a loss to win the war, and the invention of modern preservatives things like "enriched bread" "american cheese" and "tang" to prop up kellogs, general mills, kraft etc to fund the war effort and increase the population nutritionally well maintained fighting age men and is based on outdated bunk science that was funded by the named corporations to justify their programs

You quoted a link to multiple IPCC reports here:

This is denialism, and clearly shows you're ignoring evidence.

are you under the impression that technology isn't constantly becoming more efficient?

you misunderstand, this is not a technological barrier its inherent to higher food chain organisms that are not producers by their biology. Cows cant photosynthesize and the energy loss from sunlight->grass->cows->humans can't be improved. There is always going to be a 90% loss of energy when you raise an animal for food.

Its a moral statement because it is only a problem to him if he views raising animals to eat as too resource intensive

this would be true if anyone was making a moral judgement. The point is that they are MORE resource intensive and therefor LESS efficient. this really is simply thermodynamics. if you want to say something is "too" intensive you have to give a qualifier. In this case meat based diets are too intensive or too inefficient because we are trying to imagine a world where that has less climate change. Since plant based diets production uses significantly LESS resources and energy anything MORE is superfluous, unnecessary, inequitable, short-sighted, inefficient, selfish, stupid, etc with regards towards the goal of reducing climate change in order to maintain a livable ecosystem.

Because in nature when an animal overfeeds on its habitat it dies off. From nature's point of view that isn't a problem at all. If there are too many cows consuming too many plants, the cows will die and the plants will come back.

From Hitler to present-day Not Socialists […] the far right's anti-meat ideology runs surprisingly deep.

The slogan—blut und boden in the original German—was popularized by Walther Darré in 1930 (although the concepts behind the phrase can be traced back to the 19th-century Völkisch movement). Darré was the German minister of agriculture from 1933 to 1942 and a staunch advocate for agricultural reform in Nazi Germany. "Blood and soil" became a mythical reimaging of German identity, emphasizing the importance of racial heritage (blood) as tied to the land (soil).

Adolf Hitler—whose vegetarianism is well-known in popular culture—certainly connected diet with race. In Hitler's Table Talk: 1941-1944, a collection of transcribed monologues delivered by the Führer in conversation with his inner circle, he advocates for vegetarianism as a universally natural and healthy choice, using humans' vegetarian "ancestral instincts" and young children's "antipathy" to meat as evidence for his argument.

While this may seem contradictory—how can one support animal rights but deny the rights of other people?—there is a long history of animal welfare and environmentalism in white nationalist communities. The Nazi party, for example, had a "green wing" that pushed for environmental reform, including organic farming and reforestation programs, and protections for certain species of plants and animals. Along with Hitler, Heinrich Himmler was a vegetarian who opposed vivisection and cruelty towards animals. Far-right organic farming movements emerged in postwar Australia, connecting notions of race, nation, land, and nature.

These ideas persist in white nationalist circles today. Take Aryanism.net, for example. Among all the articles devoted to the history, philosophy, and politics of white nationalism, the site has a full page dedicated to veganism. Littered with quotes from Hitler, Hess, Devi, and Joseph Goebbels, the anonymous author(s) claim that veganism is "a hallmark of an authentic Not Socialist," and "a sign of genuine empathy and a level of nobility beyond presently popular norms." It's not enough to be vegan, however. Like Devi, the webpage is adamant that Aryans should be vegan for ethical reasons, and not simply for health or vanity.

The notion that veganism is somehow "natural" for white people has also been spread by the white nationalist and minor YouTube celebrity Jayme Louis Liardi. He began his YouTube career in 2012 with his channel Simply Vegan. Initially, his vlog-style videos were typical fare for this kind of channel—a list of must-read vegan books, reasons to stop eating animal products, and a series of videos on what he ate each day. But around 2014 to 2015, Liardi's tone changed. He began espousing a "warrior" code in relation to his veganism and critiquing the trappings of modern "degenerate" culture.

White nationalist veganism can sound somewhat absurd, but it also shows how complex and deeply rooted this ideology is, and how it can appeal to a variety of different audiences. To combat these racist movements, we must understand them, including how they can incorporate beliefs we usually associate with liberal or leftist politics. The diversity of this movement should not be underestimated.

I don't really think your a leftist or arguing in good faith. Maybe you are just wholly and completely ignorant of reality but your simple "just do x" fixes are misguided and won't work for a myriad of reasons.

Intuitively we can understand that as ancient humans came together to plant crops they formed sedentary communities invented writing and debt and domesticated animals that this was a fundamental change to our relationship with the means of our production and reproduction of life. Numerous multidisciplinary studies show that the advent of agriculture and domestication of coincided with the invention of private property the closing of common lands and decline in nomadic lifestyles that followed wild animals to a domination of nature style of controlling animals.

Ecological systems are naturally in balance and much of the deserts of Africa, Australia, Asia and America were artificially created by overpopulation and overgrazing of herd animals like sheep, cows and goats and unprecedented clear cutting during the middle ages and colonial period. Many of the horrific diseases that humans experience are not present in nature and are a product of the unsanitary conditions that modern society necessitates to reproduce itself. Healthy biodiverse ecosystems self regulate and do not stagnate to the point where they create bubonic plagues.

Pre-colonial civilizations have been found by archaeologists to engage in continent wide selective agriculture where useful plant species were propagated and dense forests were alternated with low fields to concentrate animal populations for easy hunting. Entire sections of "wild" "unsettled" land was described as "naturally abundant" with fruit and vegetables growing everywhere and animals in plenty. Catholics, anglos, romans etc slaughtered the people and clear cut their forests and suppressed their language and traditions as devil magic.There is evidence of this existing in every continent from the beginning of humans to the colonial period and through today.

If you actually read a marx even once and had some scientific background you would realize historical materialism is entirely consistent with sociology, archaeology, biology, ecology, chemistry, physics, meteorology, geology, and climate science and our politics should be informed by that reality.

are you actually incapable of stringing more than two ideas together?

Cows don't exist in a fucking vacuum. No one disagrees that meat is not more nutritionally dense. It takes more energy, human energy, input, work by people, people getting up and going to work and doing labor, more of it, it takes more and not less work from humans, to create one calorie of energy from cow, than it does it create one calorie of energy from plant .

you have a person
they do (10) work
they make (10) energy from plant

you have a person
they do (10) work
they make (1) energy from cow

how does this magic happen if cows dont spontaneously appear from work?

you have a person
they do (10) work
they make (10) plant energy
(10) energy goes to making cow
(9) energy is lost as heat
(1) energy is retained by cow

how do you not fucking understand this.
for every cow you must have 10 plant and burn 9 of them.

there is no "expand to the arctic" or "make more cow" without "burn more plants"

all calories aren't equal.

A pound of meat is more valuable than a pound of grain

thats literally what i said but 100 calories of meat is not more valuable than 100 calories of grain they are both 100 calories

100g of beef is 250 calories
100g of rice is 150 calories

obviously a pound of meat has more calories because its more calorie dense

a pound of water has no calories, thats not how nutrition works

using the same conversion 100 cal of beef is 40 grams and 100 cal of rice is 66 grams

but it takes 1000 calories or 666 grams of rice to make 40 grams of beef you fucking idiot

Thank you for your reply, fam!
No one disagrees that meat is not more nutritionally dense. It takes more energy, human energy, input, work by people, people getting up and going to work and doing labor, more of it, it takes more and not less work from humans, to create one calorie of energy from cow, than it does it create one calorie of energy from plant.
The point isn't really that "red meat is more nutritious" (although it fucking is), but rather that you can not fucking sustain a human animal without a meat-based diet exactly because he biologically requires it. Reducing meat consumption is another thing, although we should take into account that we, as a species, literally can not live healthily without consuming animal meat.

You keep pushing this surface-level-analogy (thermo-dynamics, and so on) which DOES NOT actually address the issue at hand: quantitative and qualitative nutrition. It was already shown ITT that not even an "insect based diet" is adequate for human beings to sustain themselves on. You skipped that point (and many others) to conclude that everybody ITT is against you, and everybody ITT is a "shitposter" except you.

The fact is, we biologically NEED red meat. End of story, you brainwashed liberal.

for every cow you must have 10 plant and burn 9 of them.
What you do here is a one-dimensional (aka. quantitative pseudo-) analysis. Yeah, on a quantitative level cow meat is totally BAD, MUH NIGGUH, but it turns out that we need it on a qualitative level.

If you are not ready to accept this biological fact, that has two possible implications:
1) you are a psychopath, like that famous vegan, Vegan Gains ( youtube.com/watch?v=s3S26Gp5QK4 )
2) or you don't care about actual science and wish to push your anti-human ideology.

Chose one, you fucking retard. We, humans, need animal fats. This is a biological fact.

the forests were cleared to grow grain.
and? again this is what im saying i dont disagree. growing grain was a less efficient alternative to what was already in place but the new arrivals didn't understand how to manage it and suppressed information about it in chase of profit and expansion under a known system to the detriment of individuals, society and the environment. Monoculture row planting, gmo-fertalizers, synthetic fertilizers and tilling have many of the same problems as mono-species herd grazing in that they increase erosion, destroy water quality and retention in the landscape, and breed disease that puts entire countries crops in jeopardy, and destroy biodiversity effecting the whole food chains ability to regulate itself.

maybe make it a quarter of your meal once a week/month as a treat or get a whole roast for holidays once a quarter and freeze leftovers.

The fact is, we biologically NEED red meat. End of story, you brainwashed liberal.

I'm not entirely sure if I believe you. Does it have to be red? I thought you could get everything from legumes like lentils, almonds, cashews, peanuts etc. Now I don't actually insist people do this because they are often practically luxury goods in some places but if we moved towards making them more available so people could rely on meat less that would be a good things. A big problem is the psychological appeal baked into consumerism, because meat is generally the main course and most expensive thing people think they are losing their status by giving it up.

Afaik the only thing that you can't get from plants is Vitamin B12 and a lot of fortified breads have it anyway. From my research it seems like the only sources for the ingredients for fortification ie how they source the actual B12 is still animals. What would be wrong with growing some crispr bacteria in vats that produces B12 and fortifying all grains with it instead of taking all that time money and resources to grow a whole ass animal.

I mean isn't it both and more. Westerners are fat because of the diabetic sugar crash cycle and it fucks up their ability to regulate carbs and they eat too many carbs to process even without fucked up regulation and they eat to many animal fats on top of that and too many plant oils on top of on top of that

Cancer is obviously driven by stress and sugar, but often metastasizes from the incorporation and buildup of toxic elements in the body that are found in environmental pollutants from industrial runoff, construction, and military adventures. This makes it into the body in small amounts from the environment, small amounts from plants and in large amounts through the consumption of other animals especially predators that eat other animals like larger long lived fish and birds.

Don't eat fish, really, the supply chain is a closed loop full of mercury and arsenic and more than 70% of fish is mislabeled tilapia grown in shallow ponds and fed pellets of ground fish cartilage that constantly increases mercury and arsenic concentrations.
seriously
youtube.com/watch?v=RYYf8cLUV5E.

Also don't eat packaged sandwich meat with nitrates.

Another big cause of cancer is chemicals being used in preserving, packaging, glues, cosmetics and hygiene products that are "not intended for consumption" or "not for internal use" and therefore not regulated by the USDA/FDA. 3M currently has a massive controversy where they have been using cancer causing glues in food products for decades that seep into the product during long term storage and commonly end up marked down after expiry date in low income groceries like wal-mart and dollar stores.

maize is one of the biggest subsidized products world wide. coca cola is practically entirely propped up as a multi billion dollar international conglomerate on corn syrup as a free tax payer subsidized waste product of the corn industry. GMO corn is bred for weight to increase price yields is packed with water and sugar and deficient in micro-nutrients. Corn meal, split corn, and corn mash are corn based pellets are fed to livestock causing malnutrition and cancers in these animals reducing the quality of the meat. Dairy cows, breeding pigs, and caged chickens dont graze.

The USG/USDA actually pays farmers to burn food, pays farmers to leave their fields empty to reduce supply to control prices, pays farmers to plant corn instead, clears forests and leases public land to private companies if they agree to plant corn, gives farmers free seed if they use privately owned seed, and so on

turns out corn and wheat arent that fucking good for you suprise. pretty sure most vegans eat whole grains, wild rice, lentils, quinoa, beans, peas, beans, beans, beans, almonds, cashews, peanuts, and copious amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables.

There are many different types of corn that are different sizes colors shapes textures dryness sweetness softness starch content protein and so on. this feeding cows "good corn" doesn't happen, corn that is not fit for human consumption is intentionally grown to subsidize mcdonalds, kfc, mountain dew, dunkin donuts, sugar cereal, hersheys, reeses, refined pastry, soft drinks, juice concentrates, milk cheese butter and dairy supply chains, thickening agents for soups canned goods baked goods cosmetics and hygiene products

all of this stems from WWII era subsidies with the rail/oil/steel teaming up with agriculture and cattle to capture the whole chain of human reproduction, produce cheap protein at a loss to win the war, and the invention of modern preservatives things like "enriched bread" "american cheese" and "tang" to prop up kellogs, general mills, kraft etc to fund the war effort and increase the population nutritionally well maintained fighting age men and is based on outdated bunk science that was funded by the named corporations to justify their programs

1. The ecological argument is a post-hoc justification for the vegan lifestyle. Everyone can agree that everyone eating lots and lots of meat (something that does not actually happen right now) under current models would be bad. This is not to say that absolutely nobody should eat or wear or otherwise consume any animal products at all, starting ASAP.

2. The idea that it is easier to make all people stop consuming any animal products whatsoever than it is to develop sustainable distribution and rationing is a vegan delusion. It is not that it is easier, it is that it is more desirable to the deeply moralist vegan who believes that pigs have souls.

By the time that we have to ration meat because everybody is used to frequent luxuries (not possible under capitalism), there will be nothing simpler than to synthesize meat or otherwise fill demand with novel production techniques. The notion that humans should be dominated by the environment is conservative woo woo bullshit.

The fact that countless hours are spent hand wringing over how meat consumption is ecologically devastating when vegans happily consume almonds and pistachios grown in the literal dessert (diverting absurd amounts of water for a luxury crop) proves the ecological argument came after the veganism. The fact that vegans agonize over animal suffering but rarely spare a thought for the indigent farmers they harm by consuming plants at subsidy prices and importing quinoa to the point that the people who farm it are priced out reveals the bourgeois, moralist nature of the vegan.

I didn't mean to angry post at you specifically, but like the entire time I wasn't even engaging with the anti-vegan posts because I agree with them, my points were about how climate change is going to massively change the way in which we conduct agriculture, and that this may well include some kind of reduction in meat consumption in the future as capitalist development leading to higher demand for meat in the second + third world is going to come to a massive head with ecological disaster that is going to dramatically shift our priorities in terms of actually sustaining the planet. Meanwhile I'm confronted with someone that can't grasp the idea that whilst we NEED meat nutrionally, the way in which it's produced when you consider the ecological factors means that from an efficiency standpoint we need to be investing into better ways to produce meat.

I'm not sure (honestly, there's no way for me to be sure), that you were always anti-vegan ITT, but it doesn't really matter really, since it's besides my point.

May there be no illusions regarding that when we become beyond fucked due to climate change, the 1% will be eating red meat and we'll be sucking on Soylent Green, my friend.

That is to say, that you, comrade, did not actually address OUR BIOLOGICAL NEEDS, and instead opted for pseudo-scientific (or, shall I say "vegan-scientific) concepts WITHOUT addressing what is most important for a Marxist: class antagonism!

people would rather gobble up and reproduce bourgeois propaganda rather than critically engage
hmmm

The fact that vegans agonize over animal suffering but rarely spare a thought for the indigent farmers they harm by consuming plants at subsidy prices and importing quinoa to the point that the people who farm it are priced out reveals the bourgeois, moralist nature of the vegan.
Daily reminder that veganism obfuscates class antagonism!

I love extra cheese and five different meat toppings on my extra large pizza. But that doesn't make meat farming any more ecologically sustainable, or in any way a good use of water, land and food.
What all of that achieves is you becoming a lard-ass, you idiot. Carb consumption is literally what makes you a Cartman.

Also bourg ideology is about propping up "personal responsibility" meme, not asking for profound systemic change.
This would be a legit social point if it weren't about ideology/biology: you will literally become a fat-ass by consuming that carb-shit, you idiot.

It's literally something that is being produced at the moment. It's cost of production has fallen by about 38000x since research started and only needs to fall by a further 10x to reach price parity with normal meat. Why are you in this much denial?

"The Economy" doesn't provide """"the goods"""" (be they automation or HIGH SPEED INTERWEBS) under capitalism.

Under capitalism the system will keep on reproducing its contradictions, as Marx detected them. So for instance, when the price ("worth") of working power is HISTORICALLY the LOWEST in HISTORY (like right now), there will be zero (that is: 0) automation going on, since there's no bourgeois incentive to make the (market) "race" go on. The whole capitalist system is literally frozen thanks to Margaret Thatcher, you fag.

I would respond by saying that this is why we need an effective labour movement to reduce labour hours and drive up the cost of labour power, but none of this has anything to do with the matter at hand: what you've just said is literally a non-sequitur (also attributing such a phenomenon to the actions of a politician is idealist as fuck).

When we were hunter-gatherers, which, by the way, approximately covers 95% of our species' actual existence, we "brutally" hunted for meat, and we rarely ate any nuts, veggies, fruits. We are, quite simply, hunters OVER gatherers.

While our babies were clinging on our female's breasts, these females were looking out for berries and vegetables, while our forefathers were trying to capture animal meat.

What I've had said so far is a fucking historic/anthropological fact, mind you. (Go argue against Engels' The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State if you can actually read, you liberal shill!)

I'm not saying that "this is our nature" - I'm only saying that this has been our species' condition under which we have spent 99% f our evolution. Yet, having able to have a disregard for this evolutionary factor is what makes us social, human, class-based, and so on; and we, as Marxists know, that the latter is what progresses history as such.

Our species can be said to have been existing for at least over 300,000 years. This means that our currently existent individuals have been – in one way or the other – under the influence of the aforementioned evolutionary path, moreover, the rule of a class society in the latter years.

Hence, you are an absolute and ridiculous faggot, and you need to read a fucking non-vegan book.

And I'm talking about the actually existing capitalist economy with its antagonisms and its contradictions and not about the hegemonic ideas about its benevolence you seem to share, you turd.

Last month on the "main street" of my town three vegan fags were trying to evangelize random walkers by showing them random "chicken farm torture" vids on their iPads. From that moment on, as a Marxist, I've known that they were class enemies, because I was for the self-elimination of the proletariat and they were for some moralist bullshit about my food.

It's called "primitive communism" by Marx, and it's called hunter-gatherer society by anthropologists/historians/archaeologists/biologists. OUR SPECIES BY ALL CREDIBLE ACCOUNTS HAS SPENT ITS TIME EATING ANIMAL MEAT (PRIMARY) AND GATHERING ANYTHING ELSE (SECONDARY FOOD SOURCES) WE COULD. We are LITERALLY primarily carnivores, and secondarily herbivores, thus our "omnivore" status is aligned.

See: (It's in our biology to prefer animal meat and fat.)

Once again, it is something that already exists, it's simply a matter of cost reduction through scaling up production.

Secondly, the process for lab-grown meat would still require the use of animal cells. That means they would take a small muscle sample from the animal to collect the stem cells. This is clearly exploitation of the animals and thus would not be deemed vegan.
The Dutch scientist Professor Mark Post who first presented the world with lab-grown meat laid out his vision as 'you have a limited herd of donor animals in the world that you keep in stock and that you get your cells from there'.
So, vegans face the question, would we be happy for a small number of animals to suffer to save the billions of animals that would suffer and die under the current agriculture industry? I believe the opinions would be heavily divided.
Most of what I've read by vegans implies that they do not view lab grown meat as vegan. Most do seem to view it as better than the status quo, though.

Logan Hill
Logan Hill

It's not a viable alternative to animals yet, and if meat eaters all wait around for synthetic meat to stop eating animals it will be too late. What people should do is switch to a mostly plant-based diet until lab grown meat becomes viable.

It really depends on how the cells are harvested. Obviously if there is a donor herd that is kept around for continual harvesting of stem cells, vegans will object. That's still an animal product, after all, no different than wool or honey or whatever other harmless shit vegans get worked up about. If we get to the point where no animals are involved in the process anymore, though, then it can't really be called an animal product. At that point, the vegans get what they want and animal farming basically ends forever.

A perfect example of how commodity production leads to worse outcomes for all in the long run. Farmers are dumping tons of fungalcides onto their crops to keep crop yield high enough so they can be profitable. This causes drug resistant fungus to develop which infect and kill people. We can add another 700k yearly deaths to the body count of capitalism. Luckily there are solutions such as planting different crops together to control fungal spreading but these techniques will not be implemented as long as the profit motive stands.
