End User Licencing - Contracts?

Submitted by John_O on Wed, 01/28/2009 - 12:47

At the point of installing a new piece of software, we are routinely asked if we 'agree' or 'disagree' with the terms of licence.

How many of us really read and engage with these terms?

Should a similar End User Licence be introduced at points of meat consumption? -

"I am comfortable with killing animals and, if required by law, I am willing to kill animals."

A kind of "Meat Licence Lite?"

 

 

Deferring the act?

Would the End User actually be required to do the deed after agreeing to the licence, or could they accept, knowing that they will never have to act upon it.

 

Would there be a lottery, something like jury service, where each week, a small number of meat licensees report to the slaughterhouse?

 

There is something different about deferring the act of killing to an indeterminate point in the future. It would feel more like a punishment for eating meat, rather than an initiation rite.

Isn't this a little like jury service, sort of a maintainance of the society/democracy that you have voted within??
