I have to confess that I am an unrepentant carnivore. I like my burgers and my steak tartare. Whenever someone tries to convey how horrific slaughterhouses or chicken farms are, I actually get hungry. So you can imagine how I wouldn’t expect little Luiz Antonio to challenge my long-held position, but that’s just what he did.
Luiz is having a disagreement with his mother about eating dinner—not so unusual, right? Except Luiz’ reasons for not wanting to eat his meal have a bit more philosophy behind them than typical little-kid crankiness. Within minutes he has his mom weeping by asking her why the animals have to die to feed humans. He prefers when the animals don’t die and can stay “standing.”
