At the most i have a couple of beers or glasses of wine a week... but usually go 2 or 3 weeks with none at all. Just when the mood strikes dh and me.
I don't think anyone is really debating that point... the gist of what i am saying is that the view of cows and other "domestic" animals we use for profit as "stupid" because they are docile is a self-serving view which allows people to not feel too bad about the way such creatures are treated in the modern world.
I think another aspect of this is which comes first, the contempt for stupidity or the exploitation and violence? I think often "superior" forces see it as their right to exploit and conquer, and because they will not or cannot understand those to whom such an approach to life is utterly alien, they perceive their victims' lack of readiness or inability to defend themselves as stupidity and inferiority.

Any creature with an iota of intelligence would lash back at someone who just whopped em on the head with a shovel, instead of looking stupidly and going "WHUH???" So intelligence is demonstrated by one's level of violent retaliation? Hmmm... i actually tend to think the opposite. Maybe the cows are enlightened. In all...
