  1. It's significant that poignant letters like this were being written by a few sensitive people fifty or sixty years before factory-farming was ever invented. It's important to remember that, horrible as today's crowded, stinking animal-death-camps are, and glad as we will be when they are abolished, these extreme abuses aren't the heart of what we protest. The crux of the issue is tenderness versus callous violence against the defenseless.
