Non - violence as an idea generally appeals to me. However, whenever I express this opinion, people generally ask - "aren't you a non -vegetarian ?". To which I quickly answer, "i am not just a non -vegetarian, i am a happy non - vegetarian. " My idea is to prevent pointless violence. Food - is a point.
Anyways, my question to the people associate non violence with people's personal food choices is - do you guys kill spiders? What if you found one crawling in your bed? or above your dining table.. or in your baby's crib? What about mosquitoes? Do you own a can of Hit? What do you do? let them bite you? What is the difference between the life of a mosquito and that of a chicken? Would you eat a talking fruit that grew on a tree?
