Per capita consumption of meat continues to increase. Further compounded by the increase in human population, the number of animals killed to satisfy human blood lust has never been higher.
And the future is even more bleak.
Humans slaughter a billion animals per week in slaughterhouses, another ten billion a week in gill nets, factory ships, and long lines.
And those numbers are going to grow exponentially with the increase in human population and the projected increase in per capita consumption of animal corpses.
The highest per capita consumption of meat is to be found in wealthy capitalist countries, the lowest in Third World and socialist nations.
Meat is, unarguably, a capitalist delicacy.
Per capita meat consumption in socialist countries today is less than half that in capitalist countries, and in many cases, considerably lower. In Cuba, for example, it is 20% of that in the US.
Translation: Were socialism to displace capitalism, billions fewer animals would die each year.
That alone is justification enough to embrace socialism.
