Time magazine has already served up an article called “Tastes Like Chicken: The Quest for Fake Meat.” The magazine spent more than 1,000 words giving us a taste of the new world order. “Do we really need to kill animals to live? Today, the hunger for meat is also contributing to the climate-change catastrophe.” The article goes on to give its readers something to chew on: “So the idea of fake meat has never been more alluring.”
Author John Cloud focused on people like “the creator of Tofurky and dean of soy-meat inventors,” products like “a meat analogue” that he tried eating in three dishes. “None were very good.” Duh.
The dystopian dinner the author would have us eat isn’t quite cooked up yet. Thank God. But Time’s already marketing it as a complete substitute to our evil meat habit. The piece ends with this feel-good recipe: “Maybe one day you'll order a chicken fajita at Chili's that is made with soy. You almost certainly won't notice the difference, but the planet will.”
Predictably, The New York Times wants to play diet doctor too. On March 21, it profiled “Clueless” actress Alicia Silverstone, who has become a PETA poster child and a strident anti-meat moron (oops, vegan) ever since she had a heart-to-heart with her dog.
“At one point I looked at my dog, who was my best friend, and I thought, If I’m not going to eat you, then how can I eat these other creatures who have the same capacity for love and joy,” said the budding Doctor Doolittle. What the dog thought, we don’t know. But “The karma of turning vegan is amazing,” she told the author.
Another Times story from November underscored the rising popularity of this crazy diet because 1 percent of the population, including “celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres” participate. That story also quoted one vegan making the typical media claim, “veganism has become hipper.”
Carnivores like the remaining 300 million-plus Americans are still in charge, but the left and the media will keep singing the glories of this obscure diet until even shoe leather isn’t on the menu. By then, eco-fascism will have sucked the life out of living and taken away everything not approved by some gray bureaucrat.
