  • Excerpt from The Golden Age Cook BookLately I have been in the city of Chicago one of the greatest slaughter houses of the world where the slaughter men, who are employed from early morn till late at night in the killing of thousands of these hapless creatures, are made a class practically apart from their fellow men they are marked outby the police as the most dangerExcerpt from The Golden Age Cook BookLately I have been in the city of Chicago one of the greatest slaughter houses of the world where the slaughter men, who are employed from early morn till late at night in the killing of thousands of these hapless creatures, are made a class practically apart from their fellow men they are marked outby the police as the most dangerous part of the community amongst them are committed most crimes of violence, and the most ready use of the knife is found One day l was speaking to an authority on this subject, and I asked him how it was that he knew so decidedly that most of the murders and the crimes with the knife were perpetrated by that particular class of men, and his answer was suggestive, although horrible He said there is a peculiar turn of the knife which men learn to use in the slaughter house, for, as the living creatures are brought to them by machinery, these men slit their throats as they pass by That twist of the wrist is the characteristic of most crimes with the knife committed amongst our Chicago population That struck me at once as both a horrible and significant fact What right have people to condemn other men to a trade that makes them so readily take to the knife in anger which marks them out as specially brutalized brutes amongst their fellow men Being constantly in the sight and the smell of blood, their whole nature is coarsened accustomed to kill thousands of creatures, they lose all sense of reverence for sentient life, they grow indifferent to the suffering they contin ually see around them accustomed to inflict pain, they grow callous to the sight of pain accustomed to kill swiftly, and sometimes not even waiting until the creature is dead before the skin is stripped from it, their nerves become coarsened, hardened, and brutalized, and they are less men as men because they are slaughterers of animals And everyone who eats flesh meat has part in that brutalization everyone who uses what they provide is guilty of this degradation of his fellow men.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at forgottenbooksThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
