“When future Zarnap generations look back on us, do we want them to see us as heartless or do we want them to see us as having the three hearts that we know each Zarnap has?”
OK, we know that humans aren’t being slaughtered for food by the billions and that aliens don’t have fast-food chains dedicated to frying human body parts—but this alternate reality sheds light on the very real hell that billions of animals who are exploited, abused, and killed every year for food endure. The Earthlings we share our planet with deserve respect, compassion, and to be left off our plates, regardless of species.
