I think the lions domesticated zebras, which is why they have those dumb looking colors on them. Just like the way we domesticated animals like chickens, cows, pigs, cats, dogs... I'm interested in this process. Like I'm sure the cow was not colored black and white in the wild, and neither were the chickens colored white. It is a (somewhat) sick and sadistic symbiotic relationship between humans and farm animals. The only reason we feed them at all is because they will ultimately feed us(and turned to feces in the end). Am I the only one who sees this process? Those nice subordinate and obedient animals will end up being shit. Their proteins broken down into simpler components... all that nurturing each individual animal's mother put into their offspring for nothing; but if one looked at it in another way one could say it is beneficial to them, since it is because they feed us that they have survived. Bananas thrive in huge numbers in plantations simply because they are useful to us, but that is the catch... Another thing is that maybe the process of domestication degrades the animal itself, making it too dependent on us. Does anyone think that eating a wild animal is somehow more nutritious than eating one that is dometicated, even if only slightly? I once knew a guy who pampered his dogs a bit too much(he had a german sheperd and a huge black dog). I took the huge black dog out for a walk, and for some reason he backed down tremendously when a really small dog the size of a chihuahua started to confront it. I nearly kicked that coward ass black dog! This brings me to my main point, and that is that comfort atrophies any sense of readiness... The wild has a wonderful mechanism of checks and balances that eliminates anything that likes too much comfort. It's like the thing we love so much and pamper, we think we are doing it much good, but in the end they end up getting their pride cut off(testicles), ultimately corrupting its integrity. The rich are pampered by the poor(the small number of rich are domesticated by the massive amount of less fortunate). I think this is why most Americans are so unhappy. I've been to other countries that don't have it as good, but for some reason they live like they have exactly what they need. It's all relative of course, meaning that if the whole world lived like Americans, then only the most pampered would be in our situation. Society always has safety nets in place... would the acrobat's performance be a bit more impressive if they had no safety net? These risks are what sets things apart. Now excuse me while I go eat some chickens(in the end we are all hypocrites).
