Interesting site, showcasing a slaughter-based civilization’s many lowly creations: Go here.
Please don’t take offense at the term “beasts” as meaning “animals.” I’m sure that was not the site creator’s intent. Hellbeasts (as opposed to innocent beasts) are solely of the human variety. Read all about ‘em, so many!
Under the “animal abuse” tag, please realize that if those people had some suitable career ambitions, instead of jail terms and/or fines, there’d be satisfying, lucrative places of employment for them among their own kind, in several industries which a good number of arrogant fools calling themselves “humanity” find necessary and acceptable, even to the point of being proud of it and “happy.”
Animal vivisection (“searching for cures”), food production (farms & slaughterhouses), circus animal training, puppy growing (mills), luxury clothing production (fur farms, trapping), etc., etc. …they all need workers, don’t they? Gotta keep all the yahoos on meds, entertained, and looking special.
As much as I love certain individuals, forever…
…and as decent as I always am to most everyone, I do hate “us”—the “wise and kind” species—and any wicked, fake “god” behind this hell on Earth. The source of all real love and goodness is evidently elsewhere, and it is imperative for the decent among us to get back there.
As if animals don’t already have enough to contend with all by themselves in nature and elsewhere. Then there are the 7+billion-and-continually-multiplying active “humans” aggressively stomping all over the world, with most spouting animal-loving platitudes out the other side of their mouths.
They’re also the self-proclaimed apex predators of the planet, while needing manmade, outrageously unfair weapons and extreme human deviousness to bring down the animals, who have only their own minds and bodies for defense. Those artificial and unfair practices people call “natural,” while bitching at vegans for using B12 supplement, and possibly a few others, for being “unnatural” and “needing technology to survive.” Hypocrisy at its worst.
When the vast majority of us stop all this delusional crap…
…and become animal rescuers and diehard vegans, and our animal torture industries are all dying out, only then will we be on our way to what we’ve always claimed to be. Until then, the Hellbeasts will always be among us making life largely a nightmare for countless sweet lives, animal and human alike. And yes, I include people who still eat animals as sweet lives who deserve none of this insane suffering. They apparently still do not know what they do. But as long as they’re not fighting against animal liberation and not condemning veganism, they are more good than evil and thereby decent.
Sorry for the disjointedness; I just needed to rant after reading about a tiny baby’s months-long torture-murder on the Hellbeasts site. Done by her own parents. This was the 2012 case of Mary Webb and her prized man Robert Molinski who tortured babies Piper and Ella for four months. Piper finally died.
The word “livestock” is chock full of meaning, none of it good.
Stock is material goods kept on hand for use and/or available for sale, i.e. things. Not lives, things. Live stock are, of course, sentient lives held captive for use and/or available for sale. In other words, slaves, to be used for whatever purpose you like, including to be knifed to death and turned into unhealthy food. Or to be kept in hellishly abysmal breeding mills as with dogs for the puppy market. The shameful list goes on, all the stuff of the worst nightmares. But somehow deemed okay by the complacent masses.
“Only people can be said to be murdered or enslaved, not animals.”
People like to differentiate between people and animals, believing it’s okay to keep animals as slaves and sell them, slaughter them, and so forth…but not humans.
Well, except for our violent offenders and murderers who obviously do think it’s (more than) okay to kidnap and slaughter people. They almost always train themselves on animals before finally getting at the real targets of their rage. Now, what does that say for those who abuse and slaughter animals legally, for normal people’s wants?
Why do otherwise decent people suddenly become monstrously cruel when it comes to what they like to eat?
With me, it was purely and simply a habit, a holdover from generations upon generations past. And of course denial plays a big part in the sham; people love to pretend animals enjoy their lots in life and that being ineffectively stunned (or the more popular these days, fully conscious) and knifed to death is a pleasant way to die. And like everyone else, I used to believe: It’s all absolutely necessary! Otherwise, how will we survive? Without animal meat/eggs/milk, we cannot be healthy! (Which of course is a big load of nonsense.)
“It doesn’t get any better than us!”
A popular belief goes something like: Well, using and slaughtering animals got us to this stage of development so it must be good to use and slaughter animals. Yet at this stage of development, we’re anything but a peaceful, nonviolent, truly intelligent and consistently admirable species.
We hear accounts almost daily of some new horrific case where a child has been kidnapped, raped, murdered, and all variety of crimes against each other, from global crimes like what’s going on with North Korea and the terrorism problem, to one-on-one robberies, gangs of thugs menacing or harming people, etc., ad nauseam. There’s plenty else that doesn’t inspire pride either—anything but. The slaughterhouse, et al, are at the big old, deep root of all of that.
Anyone beaming with pride over humanity’s current state, thinking there’s no better way for humanity to conduct itself, has to be quite deranged. Derangement often seems to be the overwhelming state of mind among people. Those who are well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society are indeed profoundly sick people.
“Have a steak and fit in, weirdo.”
But as long as it’s the majority and “everyone’s doing it,” it’s okay, people believe. Being different is one of the things people fear the most. People are creatures of conformity, fitting in with the crowd, not being weird in any unhip way. Go with the flow, don’t make waves. Live your life the normal way, and aggressively push that normalcy on others. Well, aggressively normal people are repulsive to me. Really, I cannot stand it. Aggressively normal people love the concept of livestock, since normal people well-adjusted to a sick society have always used livestock.
Normal people seem totally oblivious to the harm the livestock mindset visits upon all of us. Believing in livestock allows every form of human-on-human cruelty out there. Since, when we lie to each other to excuse sadistic abuse of the innocent, because of their “inferior” status, deep down we know it’s all lies and that we’re thereby a species of liars. That leads to a simmering dislike of each other, then overblown denial of that dislike and the happy “I love all people!” proclamations. A perfect recipe for the collective insanity we all can admit to when being brutally honest. However…
Millions of lightbulb moments
Thankfully, these days more and more people are realizing the importance of our treatment of animals, realizing they are not stock, they’re highly sensitive beings with as much right to their own lives as we have to ours. So I sincerely hope hordes and hordes of people will continue recruiting everyone they can to the cause and the health benefits of being vegan and opposing all use of animals as livestock.
Then, someday that concept, that vile word and all the horrors that stem from it, will become obsolete, to be remembered by the vast majority only in shame and disbelief.

In a nasty, cruel, murderous world, certain conventional restauranteurs would have it made. Think about it. What better way to dispose of human bodies than to serve the meat to hungry customers, disguised as “pork” or other meats?
Joseph Roy Metheny
Serving people to people is exactly what Joseph Roy Metheny did, with two “crack whores” (as he called them) in the 1990s. Customers at his roadside BBQ stand loved the “special meat,” as he called it. Those two women were among about ten people in all that he viciously murdered, strictly for the fun of it, and the power. To quote him: “I had real roast beef and pork sandwiches and why not they were very good… The human body tastes was very similar to pork. If you mix it together no one can tell the difference.” He was found dead in his Maryland prison cell at 62 this August (2017). Maryland is of course one of the US states.
Food establishments and their shady cronies, ah yes, what a convenient body disposal method that would be for them. But no, that can’t be true, can it?
Worldwide as of 2013, over the previous 20 years, 4,432,880 people had gone missing, never to return. In the US, close to 500,000 children are reported missing each year, with only about 20% of them being found. Most are runaways or taken by relatives or acquaintances; only a small percentage are taken by complete strangers, something like 60 per year (very rough estimate). Some of those 500,000 are repeat runaways, so the actual number of missing children isn’t so high. Still, each year in the US, something like 300,000 (very rough estimate) missing children are never found. Even I have a hard time believing that 500,000 reported yearly, but here’s the source: https://www.missingkids.org/KeyFacts
With always a few people like Joe Metheny and Nathaniel Bar-Jonah (see below) out there, you have to wonder where some of those missing people might have ended up. I’m not trying to be crude or funny here, but I have to wonder how many meat lovers have likely dined on human meat in restaurants and elsewhere? I wonder how many people’s flesh I might have eaten back when I ate burgers, sliced meat sandwiches, cold cuts, and other processed meats like hot dogs, etc.
I’m ever disgusted and guilty over the fact that I very likely ate dog or cat meat once, in 1984 at a group lunch at a Korean restaurant. I was not vegetarian back then and ordered the “healthy soup.” It was revolting, a big bowl of murky orangish fluid withchunks and strands of stuff floating in it, among them an octopus’s tentacle, some mushy vegetables and some long slices of pink-brown mystery meat that looked and tasted strange. I left most of the soup untouched after that. Not long after that I went vegetarian/vegan.
That mystery meat was probably the most persuasive dietary catalyst for me. So, what of the possible human meat being served up out there, for all those great people people we hear boasting about how much they enjoy life and love people? Those who “put people first!” Or, do they also love people – tasty, tasty people? Like some say about animals on their bumper stickers. Real comedians those people are.
Vegans are said to be anti-human and to value animals as much or more so than we do humans. Well, at least we don’t eat people, like meat lovers possibly do. The cannibalism wouldn’t be deliberate of course, but vegans are constantly blamed for unintentional acts of harm simply by our existing, so…have a bit of your own medicine, you, who know who you are. Eating people unintentionally does seem a lot worse than anything vegans might do, doesn’t it?
Surely someone would come up with, “Well, those fake meats could have people in them too!” But that’s far less likely. Makers of veggie meats do not deal in carcasses, so, no dead bodies = no meat. But if the occasional murderer did manage to get some human meat into the veggie meat mix on some rare occasion, it wouldn’t really concern me, since I don’t eat much fake meat. Anyway, I have a fair amount of trust in makers of vegan foods to assure their ingredients are what they claim. Meat processors on the other hand, who enjoy killing animals, I don’t trust.
He was another cannibal, from Massachusetts. In prison, he was witnessed by guards to indulge in one of his favorite childhood treats, sucking at and eating his own scabs. He was seen to be “having sex” while chewing and relishing a scab. He’d snatched countless children away from their lives, took them to isolated areas, tortured and raped them, and murdered some, let others live. Several of his victims were never found. He’s said to have served meat from some of his victims to guests at his cookouts in the form of burgers, chili, meat pies, casseroles, etc. He too died in his prison cell, of a heart attack in 2008.
The meat industry’s animal abuse should be enough to make anyone go vegan. But how many people are so hopelessly addicted to meats that the possibility of eating people, even innocent murdered children, wouldn’t phase them?
Anti-vegans enjoy saying things like, Soylent green…it’s people! whenever some vegan mock meat is being promoted. But it seems the sad laugh is on them, doesn’t it? I mean, they’re the ones almost certainly eating people on occasion, and it would be the meat of innocent murder victims to boot.
I say that eating any meat is cannibalism…they’re our fellow Earthlings and as such, their lives are as precious to them as yours is to you, and their dead bodies are as much off-limits to me as human meat is. Although still far from perfect, I take my humanity very seriously after a lifetime struggle to reach this level of of conscience. So corpses of the abused and slaughtered, and stolen body fluids (eggs & milk), are simply not food. There’s so much else that’s great to eat, and that we don’t have to make up crazy excuses for.
Well, in closing, for those of you who find me and other vegans ridiculous, or whatever disparaging term you prefer…
