I don't remember anyone saying anything in this thread about being "forced" to eat crickets.I absolutely love the extreme paranoia in this thread. Holy shit fellas.
No one is going to force you to eat crickets. Absolutely no one is going to force you to eat crickets.
Let me say that again.
No one is going to force you to eat crickets.
Humans have relied on insects as food since the dawn of time. Every single one of us has insect eating ancestors. Plenty of cultures still do eat insects, not just primitive peoples, either. Normalizing insect eating (which will probably take decades) and utilizing them has healthy food (which they are) is a good thing. Cattle farming is disgusting and harmful (and I love beef) so having some alternatives is good.
If you don't want to eat the crickets, don't eat the fucking crickets.
No one is going to force you to eat crickets, or anything at all.
The discussion in this thread is about the much greater context that this issue is only one aspect of. If you only get your information from the corporate "mainstream" media, there is probably much of this context that you are unaware of and how it is affecting farming and what its stated goals are for the future...the trajectory it is on.
I don't have time to bring you up to speed...maybe someone else here does. If you think this is paranoia, to me that is truly laughable...but I'm not the least bit surprised...it's just the typical mentality of normalcy bias and ignorance of these types of issues, and who and what is behind it all.
Think what you want...have a nice day.
