I have two points to make.
1. This cartoon refers of course to boiling lobsters alive, which is practiced and taken for granted in the USA, UK and most Western cultures. One lobster cooking guide stipulates that “the lobster must be boiled live, or it won’t cook right.” Vegans don’t indulge in this cruelty, but could suffer great pain due to their innate empathy. So, meat eaters, please show some compassion to both the animals and the vegans!
2. Racists are another story. Just this morning, one from a lobster-boiling country announced to the world that “the Chinese is an evil RACE” (my emphasis). Other than the obvious, this is an illustration of what I call “spiritual far-sightedness”, where the afflicted is keenly aware of what goes on in an alley on the other side of the planet, but unaware and/or unconcerned about what goes on in his/her own backyard. Go get a third-eye monocle please.
