A few days back I posted a vlog asking for topic suggestions. An email came to me that really touched me, because her story was the same as mine. It came from a woman who wanted to start a grass-based animal farm. She understands that making a living with sustainable agriculture in her regions means raising animals. It means exchanging money for animals, their offspring, and their meat. She confessed to recently converting from being vegan, and while she does feel that animals on soil can heal the land and belong in hr diet, she is having problems in her heart. That is because this not just a business issue for her, but a moral one.
She was in no way admonishing me, she was honestly interested in how to "be okay" with making a living selling the offspring and flesh of other sentient beings. This was my response to her.
