Is It Ethical to Eat Meat?Watch
I just think all creatures have the right to life and walk freely on the earth - and meat industries don't allow that. Yeah I get the whole "law of the jungle" crap and that all animals eat each other, but we have morals and superiority - and I think we should use that for good.
But yeah, it can be argued either way. Both sides are legitimate
What I do think is unethical is the way we treat animals who are farmed for the table. Most of the meat-eating friends I have tend to agree; they just push the thought to the backs of their minds because, for them, the benefits of eating meat outrank the ethical concern, which is completely their choice. I also think it's unethical, as a consumer, to contribute to the environmental damage caused by mass-farming but again, if people choose differently, it's up to them. I've never been particularly puritanical about vegetarianism; mostly I wish people who eat meat would eat a bit less of it, if they don't want to give it up altogether.
Why do you ask, OP? Personal consideration, or just musing?
