It's not just McDonald's, of course, but the whole fast-food/factory-farming system that's slowly being flushed down the commode of history. As reported in the London Telegraph, the fast food industry is already destroying the family farm, and any farmers who buy into this decadent system are, to put it gently, chumps. Meanwhile, some families have managed to make a deal with the devil, whoring their hog farms out to corporations so they can "maintain the lifestyle" and pretend they have a family farm, rather than one division of a large factory farm. But don't these people depend on the farm to survive? Yeah, right. The standard joke is, if my wife worked a second job, I could farm another 200 acres." In other words, it's a hobby - one that's not a joke to the farmed animals that get slaughtered.
