Fallacy 1) We alone of the animal kingdom are afraid of death.
This is not true. Many members of the animal kingdom are afraid of death, however their nursing instinct is greater and so they will fight to the death for their children.
Fallacy 2) Being afraid of death/injury uniquely makes us controllable.
This doesn't make us any more controllable than our desire for rewards, company, etc. it's just an easier/faster way to get control.
Are we really being farmed? Are we corralled, branded, and executed when we are no longer profitable? Are you currently sitting in a place where you can't do what you want to? or are you a farmer who owns and controls these people?
He's also been cherry picking his examples to give the best light to his theory, and Failed to mention the biggest example of why we are not just cattle that are farmed for our resources. - The fact that if we choose to (and some people do) we can just pick up and leave the system.

Oh, and I missed one...
dannidandannikins @stefbot Nice appeal to authority... 'i am a philosopher because this piece of paper says so'. If you were a philosopher you'd never make such an inept comment; you'd have referenced a point in your video where you did give a logical account for your argument... only you couldn't do that because your video contained no logic. 57 minutes ago
