And as a result they no longer have - having been lobotomized - the capacity to leave the prison they've made or even to see it as a prison.\"\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003Ca href=\"http:\/\/youtube.com\/watch?v=68JLWyPxt7g\" target=\"_blank\"\u003E\u003Cspan class=\"philum ic-chain\"\u003E\u003C\/span\u003E youtube\u003C\/a\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003EDid you know that depending on what country you live in, so-called \"free-range\" eggs are often anything but?\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003EIn the USA, for example, \u003Ca href=\"https:\/\/www.fsis.usda.gov\/wps\/portal\/fsis\/topics\/food-safety-education\/get-answers\/food-safety-fact-sheets\/poultry-preparation\/turkey-raised-by-the-rules\/ct_index\/!ut\/p\/a1\/jVFBbsIwEHxNjsYbQhH0FkWqgJZQhFpCLsghm8RqiC17Q5u-vi70QgUtXu3BuzMaz5inPOFpIw6yFCRVI-rvezrcwhKG_jiC2WLsP8A0fl0uHqMIRqs7B9j8AYiDG_lXTgj_8Wc3CPTNPJqXPNWCKiabQvGkRGKise9oLE8KpXJmRYHUsULsiNkKkdxCq7Ym0zFtUAtzzIQn1Jo37JgR0mLOso5Rhcy0NTrCjrayyfGDr3l6_jDwXU3jYDWYzOIAFoPfgAvJnQDXo3Hey1plx2_ahE0WjJxJgwUaNL3WuHFFpO898CCrVWl7rc1Fr1QHD_rgDzzwfddjD34skdSWWULNfBeB0lo2JSuUYZ1qDStQWPLgklalLPHkXIPr_Uvy-RROQD7v1yMbfgEAgW15\/#8\"\u003Eall that is required\u003C\/a\u003E for chickens to be considered \"free range\" is for them to have \"access to the outdoors\". \u003Ca href=\"https:\/\/www.upc-online.org\/freerange.html\"\u003EIn practice\u003C\/a\u003E what this means is that thousands of birds are crammed into tiny, unhygienic, multi-platform barns designed to fit as many animals as possible, and then a tiny door is opened on the far end of the barn leading to some small porch area which most of the chickens never even find their way to.\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003EThe USDA imposes no requirements that the chickens ever go outdoors, or even on what \"outdoors\" technically needs to look like, so in practice what you get is a bunch of \"free range\" hens never venturing anywhere near the door, and having no reason to try to do so.\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003EThis is exactly what the much-touted \"free speech\" of the western world looks like in practice when it comes to platforms with major influence.
