There have been many controversies based on animals in the wild, and how humans have been uncharismatic and how they do nothing to help. Sociology doesn’t only contribute to the society of all humans and their populations, but to living creatures and habitats outside from our modernized world. From time to time, people have slaughtered and killed wild animals for food, clothing, and other means such as hunting. A lot of animals currently have been classified “endangered” to extinct, and the world needs to make changes for this not to happen. This is a cause of our auto-segregation towards these animals, viewing them as less intelligent animals, but they are intelligent in their own ways. A German sociologist by the name of Max Weber states, “The fate of our times is characterized by rationalization and intellectualization and, above all, by the disenchantment of the world”. The rationalization and intellectualization stand for inequality and power, giving the us the doomed fate of ignoring other life stranded with us on this planet. Humans have been neglecting wild animals and creatures that aren’t human for years, as it has been getting worse once the country started to become more industrialized. It seems as it has become the social norm for people to understate living things that we judge unintelligent, which ruins the entire ecosystem of all life.
The slaughtering and killing animals process are routine, normative, institutionalized and globalized. Today, people use animals for food, and there are still reasons to continue these processes. Animals are cared for and raised on farms, but some are raised and then slaughtered to be processed and transported to supermarkets and food markets across the globe. This is a way of life, as people need to eat meat and give more food to others but must be done in a safe and controlled expense. Farmers slaughter too many of them, for the sake of making money, not to give food off as much as not everyone eats meat. Professionals manipulate the food market and give off expensive meat and a surplus of it for everyone, and it needs to be reprimanded. Specialist grab data from these supermarkets, factories and farms and lead to the idea of sustainable development, which is implemented in anti-growth and anti-environment outcomes of our society. This relates to the killing of large amounts of animals, limiting plant life and failing to keep the balance of all life by harming environments from industrialization from people today. The killing of animals has concluded that it is not necessary to commit the slaughter of so many animals, even for clothing. There are a lot of animals that can be used to create fur, bamboo, and other materials that is taken off the wild life. Fur can be processed in different ways, as today people have created machines and technologies to create these materials without having to kill unharmful animals. Expansion of territory from humans has caused huge revelation, and in order for civilization to occur, all the wildlife must be depleted from human population, is then industrialized and becomes an only “human ecosystem”. Hunting is a huge issue when it comes to extinction prevention. Butchers sell meat to production companies like other supermarkets, factories, and farms for meat to be compiled, cleaned and processed. There is no say in this, as people need food and meat is a good source of protein throughout the world, as it them becomes an excorporation of our world.
There is a say in the slaughter of animals worldwide exponentially, and its growing by the minute. Countries in Asia, Europe, and north Africa are the sought-out hunting lands, where a lot of meat is transported to the United States and other countries. There has been a surplus of meat sold throughout the world, and industries are noticing huge cuts in the market prices of meat. People hunt for the pleasure and the sport and should be reprimanded and shut down. This could lead to a sociolical problem that everyone faces, environmental ecology. This stands for the standard rate of living for the average human today, and it states that all humans cause environmental damage within industrialized societies by limiting recourses of other life. Humans share their society with other life, as animals contribute to the environment too. The slow extinction of animals is causing a deuteriation in our resources, creating biodiversity throughout the world. There is no need to kill innocent life for any reason, as there is too much civilization and animals will soon not have many places to live.
What could be done to help nullify and decrease animal killings throughout the world? This is a question that I would ask myself if I was a sociologist, and if I was in the position and the knowledge to research this topic, given all that is affected by the wild life. Animal killings have been occurring for centuries, as people need animals to thrive in their societies for clothing, food, and other essentials. Back then it wasn’t such a mis conformity, as it wasn’t as industrialized and modernized as it is today. With buildings and civilizations all across the world, doesn’t it make people think that lots of land was stolen from these animals? This turns our country into a postindustrial society, which leads to social change beyond industrialized order. This means that if we commit to a change, possibly giving land and cohabitation with animals for future years to come, it will not adapt well with our pivoted society. This will create a cultural divide in the world, and a lot of people won’t be able to live with these rules. That is why I would create barriers between pro modernization and learn to coincide with animals slowly, selling less meat products and putting restrictions on how much can be processed throughout certain times. Also, it can be implemented that a nullification or ban on hunting as a sport or practice can create rules for people to learn to get used to and learn to accept through time. In the textbook, Introduction to Sociology, the author states “A consequence of accelerating industrial and tech-nological development has been the steady spread of human intervention in nature—for example, through urbanization, industrial production and pollution, large-scale agricultural projects, the construction of dams and hydroelectric plants, and nuclear power” (Ferris, Page 568). This is due to plants, animals and all life slowly being depleted from our planet, causing pollutions and modified natural systems causing the balance of nature to go into a different, changed direction. Nuclear power, and other electrical technologies were all manifested after the nature of life, as power is desired from humans and it changes our environment in that way. If other sociologists answered my question and reacted to this inquiry about saving animals, they would want to do it but at a slow cost, as they also don’t have the answers. Sociologist use the term biodiversity to compare these principles to the world, but they would conclude that it would not only take years to stop the killing of animals substantially, it will take convincing and results for a change in the environment, and a change like that isn’t as important in today’s modernized world.
Altogether, there needs to be prevention created to stop these killings of wild life. People are killing innocent animals for their needs, but they do too much of it, and a lot of people are trying to stop this. Hunters and fishermen are polluting the areas with their techniques and views, killing wild animals for their own food and sometimes for the activity of just shooting animals. In a sociology article published by Erika Cudworth states, “Speciesism is ‘an ideology, a belief system that legitimates and inspires prejudice and discrimination’ which is discursively and materially constituted in cultural processes and institutional arenas through which animals are exploited and oppressed – zoos, the ‘use’ of animals in research, hunting, farming and slaughter”. This is an ideology that our society is constructed into this phenomenon, and it will be very difficult and it’s too big of a change to stop the slaughter of animals. It is part of our society and our globalized market of food and clothing and all the influential animals give. This is not only our planet, it is theirs too. The wildlife outside of our civilized societies is beautiful and priceless, and we are tearing it down bit by bit. There needs to be a prevention to this, and we need to share the world with everyone else. Society is heading into one direction for the past 50 years, showing that possible change into saving the environment wouldn’t do much as the next generations would do the same as technology advances. Soon we would have less life and less animals in the world, if nobody does anything to change the cycle of our future.
