Just came across some information on how caviar is made.
As a pucca vegetarian , I had been aware of stuff like caviar being treated as some ultimate thing, but was disgusted to find out how it is made.
Caviar is nothing but the eggs of the Roe fish. It is not as if the Roe lays its eggs somewhere and someone goes for a search and harvests them. They actually catch these fish, stun them, anesthesize them, do sonographies, and then make incisions in their bodies to extract the eggs.
These are then processed with the addition of salt et al, and packaged to folks who think nothing of paying through their nose to eat them.
This is Darwin's theory of survival of the fittest , in its worst manifestation. On the other hand, as humans we are not otherwise blameless. We perform the same on other female humans .
Kidnapping the Roe.
Stunning it , doing sonographies,
and removing the ovaries,
to process them with salt et al,
so carnivores may flaunt their
exclusive food habits.
Why blame humans.
They not only do this,
making incisions, songraphies,
but kill fertilised eggs
when they are declared female.
Again and again.
That is not Darwinian ,
but grossly patriarchal.
Somewhere , sometimes,
the feeling remains,
survival of the fittest
will not hold true for the future.
