More “Brown” Wisdom

by Handsome Matt

Mike Rowe discussing being a sheep herder. It’s interesting to note that the “safe and painless” way to castrate sheep results in more trauma over a longer period of time than the “painful” way.

One of our adaptations that has made us succeed as humans is empathy; the ability to understand (or at least attempt to understand) the feelings of another being. It’s not working right anymore.

We’re more concerned about pain aversion and risk aversion (for everything, including lambs) that we’re sacrificing what is ultimately good for a brief lack of pain.

Instead of sucking it up, manning up, and doing what is ultimately right, we fail. A nation of cowards.
