This animated video, released by Sustainable Table and Free Range Studios, won critical acclaim and educated more than 10 million viewers about corporate farming practices in 2003. Part two was released this year.<br><br><br><br>

Hehehe. <i>Moopheus</i>. I love it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><br><br>
I find it kind of ironic that they attempt to disabuse people of the fable of the idyllic Fisher Price-esque happy farm by dressing up the harsh reality as a cartoon with talking animals.<br><br><br><br>
Still, it might be a good way to educate kids without giving them nightmares.<br><br><br><br>

Don't let the name throw you Jimmy. It's not really a floor, it's more of a steel grating that allows material to sluice through so it can be collected and exported.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:">

The Meatrix does not fully represent vegetarian values. They never actually mentioned veganism. Meat is still murder, even if it is on a family farm. But it is a step in the right direction, since family farms are better than factory farms.

Well that's exactly it...I just want to get the word out there that this is what's really happening and if people still feel that for some reason they must eat meat then hopefully it will help them to think about where it's going to come from, and maybe in a perfect world they decide eventually to give up eating animals all together!

Very cute! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> It's a nice change, since most of the videos that I've watched concerning this issue have made my stomach turn.<br><br><br><br>
I'm glad they made the second one. I saw the first Meatrix a couple years ago and liked it!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">
