Satisfaction is not happiness. A cow is satisfied eating grass all day, but it has been bred to be satisfied. It has been conditioned before its birth to accept mental and physical weakness, to accept servitude. The soul of the cow screams in horror, but its mind cannot hear those screams, for the cow thinks only of the grass, the water, and the Sun. It is oblivious to what awaits it on the other side of the fence. God provides the cow as a lesson and a warning. Those who act like cows shall share the fate of cows.
