There seems to be a lot of commercials that highlight the taste and wonder of eating bacon. It is a campaign, no doubt by pig farmers. There is such a separation from the gluttony of eating as much bacon as possible and the little lives that are sustained in a state of torture to provide the bacon. Most people disconnect from the fact that there are living beings encapsulated in horrific inhumane conditions to bring that gluttony of bacon to your table.
The commercials aren’t asking you to eat enough meat to sustain your requirements of protein. They are associating it with one’s manhood, having a party, feasting and decadence. They are targeting a demographic that already pays little mind to the consciousness of life that is affected by them being manipulated and tethered to a primal urge for the conquest. Commercials are sophisticated developed forms of mind and behavior manipulation.
Knowing that commercials are a form of brainwashing, when ever I see a commercial that conditions people to eat more bacon, I infuse those commercials with images of screaming, crying , tortured pigs suffering in crates that they can’t turn around in. This is how I address the issue. If these commercials are a conduit for messaging, I infuse a message of the sanctity of life for the pigs into them. I may never know if they are effective or not. We will see if bacon sales drop off. But this is what I do to change the environment of indifference around the bacon eating issue.
You can do this too. Whenever you see commercials for bacon, think of the suffering screaming pigs that the bacon was made from and infuse their images into the commercial for everyone to see. If you see commercials with silly cows in them, infuse images of baby calves being ripped away from their mothers so that humans can steal their milk. This is what I automatically do whenever I see those commercials. In this way, compassion can be infused in how people treat other forms of life
