I have no complaint against people who refrain from consuming animal products. Making choices based on one’s moral view is an aspect of human exceptionalism.
The impact of too-onerous animal-welfare laws on the diets of people of limited means becomes clear.
Think cattle herds suing ranchers or lab animals suing universities — not to improve care but to liberate from all human use.
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.
This kind of thinking drives me nuts. First, we don’t treat animals as mere things or as being akin to inanimate objects.
