7. You may be correct until the Far Future arrives.

However -- consider the current status of meats that majority populations consider 'barbaric' and have made illegal -- leopard, lion, elephant, even more rare animals that are captured and sold to rich insanos as status-habits -- the prices are high because the practices are currently considered profoundly cruel and destructive/consumptive.

The sea change may happen sooner than you imagine. The number of young vegans is twenty times the numbers of their seniors, and the general number of vegans has doubled ever year for the last five years.

Me? Someone sponsors a bill to make meat wholly illegal, complete with draconian penalties -- I'll happily vote for it and give money to the sponsor. Short of that, really good fake meats that taste better than the real thing seem like the common-sense 'public health' approach to ending a hominid behavior that I now find utterly gross and distasteful.

I've changed radically on this issue in the course of my lifetime. I suspect generational change might be as profound.

I still eat Republicans, though. Tasty with the right sauce. Roasted.
