"Welcome to Meat Street. A place where people are turned into emotionless zombies. Hypnotized into apathy by moronic TV shows. Taxed into economic slavery. Lied to by government. Lied to by media.
Meat Street. Where 'expert opinion' says right and wrong are just chemical reactions in the brain. And the human soul is just someone's delusion."
Meat Street - a musical comedy.
