Surprisingly, I don’t remember anyone ever bringing up the food chain to me before. I mostly just get the “we need meat to survive” comments.
However, I would probably ask them where they think they would be on the “food chain” if they were stuck in the middle of a field full of lions, tigers, and bears, with no Burger King in sight.
Humans started bending their thumbs and fencing in the animals that couldn’t fight back.
The majority (of western society, that is) have never truly provided for themselves in their entire lives. Not only have they never personally slaughtered the carcass on their plates, but they’ve never grown the potato that is now powdered in a box in their cupboard.
In general, without having everything sold to them, humans wouldn’t have the first clue how to provide for themselves.
They’ll get whats coming during the zombie apocalypse.
We’ll be sitting here with our carrot gardens, and they’ll be like “WTF DO I EAT!?” and then the zombies will be like “Doesn’t matter, bro. I’m about to chow down on your noggin! omnomnom”
