“Bad” is in the eye of the beholder. If one’s desire is more that extra ruminants be tended versus having people be free from the conscription, then one will say it’s a good thing. If the group perception was that there was a demonstrable, compelling need for it, then there would be something like a military draft (or other selection process) within the group. As things are now, we’re quite a ways from that.
Somewhat related to that - eventually, population pressure on our planet will substantially sway what is considered okay and not okay, even within groups as large as countries. Overall, I see this as quite an unfortunate thing.
