One of the tragic trends in thinking about evolution has been to blur the distinction between humans and animals. History warns us not to regard this lightly.
Listen in as Smith discusses how science has been conflated with ethics and talks about animal and plant rights.

Cats are, we are told sternly, an unsustainable “environmental vice that we must confront”!
The animal rights movement insists it is peaceable. For the most part.
