5. Yes and no

Domesticated animals, even meat animals, thrived with us for thousands of years. We made sure they had plenty to eat year round, chased off their predators, and increased their numbers far, far beyond what they could have achieved in the wild. We also saved them from old age with a quick death and I can tell you old age sucks.

Factory farming introduced monoculture genetics and inhumane conditions. That's what's got to go.

I think the rich will always insist on the real thing once the fake thing becomes lower priced. I don't think the real thing will be grown in factory farms again.
