They're nowhere near as common as people who don't, though, is the thing.

Though I suspect part of the difference is that a fair number of veg*ns have more difficulty handling meat by nature than carnists do. At least, part of my reason for switching initially was that I had started cooking and found I couldn't handle meat without freaking out a bit.

There are probably more people who would have that difficulty if they had to handle the killing and cleaning parts, too...

one person harvesting enough for only one person to eat is pretty easy though

it's actually about the same amount of physical effort as preparing animal products, but much safer and less psychologically difficult

that is the angle of the question

I don't think this is about hunting. If people had to go out and hunt every time they wanted a steak, they'd be eating far less meat. Capitalism has turned meat into a staple food that everyone eats everyday. Where I'm from, only the rich ate meat. The rest of the people were lucky to eat meat once a year.

I think it's about making people realize what goes into making their meatloaf. If people had to hunt or raise the animals themselves, they wouldn't be so quick to eat meat everyday. It's a wasteful culture completely detached from reality.
