As compared to the industrial farming where the animal is prodded, hurt, and killed in a very painful manner. The knife of the blade must be medically sharp (ie. if the Shocet cut himself he shouldn't be able to feel it), the knife shouldn't have nicts, if killed right the animal should die in 2 seconds ( not a long drawn out process). The animal isn't considered kosher if hurt in anyway before being slaughtered or sick. This sets a standard on how the animal is to be treated on a Kosher farm. I actually think that this is a better way to slaughter an animal then the current standards set today.

The problem with these Kosher industries in modernity is that it is extremely easy for them to get away with the same practices of the meat industry at large while keeping the title of Kosher, usually by cutting corners and the use of illegal labour. Capitalism exacerbates these issues, where the pressure to compete leads to scrimping, usually at the cost of the worker and the product (animal).

I agree that the Kosher method is less cruel than other methods, in theory. In the future, industries will need to be more closely monitored to ensure they remain as cruelty free as possible.

As humans, capable of rational thought, empathy, and higher faculties in general, it is our burden to make sure that those who cannot defend themselves are treated as fairly as possible.

Agreed, when capitalism enters the picture we get something that destroys everything good including a humane way to slaughter our meat. Though hopefully in the future we can create ways to leave meat (coming from someone who loves his sausage) and create meat alternatives. 3D printing is bringing us pretty close though.

"We are Socialists, enemies, mortal enemies of the present capitalist economic system with its exploitation of the economically weak, with its injustice in wages, with its immoral evaluation of individuals according to wealth and money instead of responsibility and achievement, and we are determined under all circumstances to abolish this system ! And with my inclination to practical action it seems obvious to me that we have to put a better, more just, more moral system in its place, one which, as it were, has arms and legs and better arms and legs than the present one !"    Otto Strasser
