This time the target is a minority, which has a different food culture.
There are 10 people in the village who are willingly to eat an animal with long ears.
|"It' s too cruel to eat a lovely animal!" one of the villagers thought and proposed in the villagers' meeting to prohibit eating the creature. Needless to say, the 10 people are against the proposal. So it was to be decided democratically by majority rule.|
|Eating the animal was now prohibited by 40 votes against 10 votes.|
The writer has no intention to argue if a different dietary culture, such as a meat-eating one or vegetarianism, is good or bad in this picture book.
