David Benatar on Reasonable Vegan! Excellent interview with brilliant vegan professor David Benatar by the talented Reasonable Vegan Rebecca Fox.

There’s a lot of talk in the vegan community about whether having children is a good idea or not. Obviously the default human position is that giving birth is encouraged, or at least accepted. Most of us exist as a result of the decision to create life, and government policies that attempt to restrict procreation are met with harsh criticism. Conversely, almost every nation offers paid paternity leave…

Why the Naïve Argument against Moral Vegetarianism Really is Naïve - DAVID BENATAR

Why the Naïve Argument against Moral Vegetarianism Really is Naïve - by David Benatar





ABSTRACT



When presented with the claim of the moral vegetarian that it is wrong for us to eat meat, many people respond that because it is not wrong for lions, tigers and other carnivores to kill and eat animals, it cannot be wrong for humans to do so. This response is what Peter Alward has called the naïve argument. Peter Alward has defended the naïve argument against…

Killing Animals That Don't Fit In: Moral Dimensions of Habitat Restoration - by Jo-Ann Shelton.

"I am not suggesting that we abandon our desire to conserve other species, but rather that we develop a system of values which would accommodate the interests of all animals, not just those to which we choose to give preference in our own particular decade or century.



The reasons for shooting bison and shooting feral sheep are similar in that both species were targeted for eradication because they violated our idea of what a particular landscape should look like, and our preference…

The Abolitionist Project - by David Pearce

THE ABOLITIONIST PROJECT



INTRODUCTION

This talk is about suffering and how to get rid of it.

I predict we will abolish suffering throughout the living world.

Our descendants will be animated by gradients of genetically preprogrammed well-being that are orders of magnitude richer than today's peak experiences.

First, I'm going to outline why it's technically feasible to abolish the biological substrates of any kind of unpleasant experience -…

An Unequal Right to Life – by Joan Dunayer, New-Speciesist Philosophy, SPECIESISM pages 94 – 98

An Unequal Right to Life – by Joan Dunayer, New-Speciesist Philosophy, Speciesism, pages 94 – 98

Pluhar doesn’t accord all sentient beings – or even all mammals and birds – an equal right to life, She writes, “It is morally preferable for a human to kill and eat a fish than to slaughter and barbecue a chicken (let alone a calf, a monkey, or another human). It is also better to eat clams than fish.” Especially given that a calf’s remains will feed a human…

"The Bible Says So" - by Joan Dunayer SPECIESISM, Old-Speciesist Philosophy, pages 11-12

"The Bible Says So" - by Joan Dunayer SPECIESISM, Old-Speciesist Philosophy, pages 11-12

Many Christians believe that nonhumans exist for human use because the Bible says so. As expressed by one man, "God put us in charge over animals."

Saying that humans are entitled to dominion over nonhumans doesn't make it so. (Some sexist men likewise claim that men are entitled to dominion over women.) Humans wrote the Bible, so it isn't surprising that the…

“Humane” Wounding and Killing - by Joan Dunayer, Victims Mistaken for Game, Animal Equality: Language and Liberation, pages 45 - 48

Understatements and outright lies conceal hunting’s cruelty. Hunters don’t “always” shoot with “perfect” skill, hunting spokesman Jim Posewitz says. Hunters routinely fail to kill cleanly. They aim too low or too far back. They shoot birds so birds so distant that shotgun pellets lack sufficient force to kill on impact. They fire at mammals who are running or are partly concealed. On one Tennessee hunt, a European wild boar cornered by dogs suffered hits from at least five…

"Wildlife Conservation" Laws by Joan Dunayer (extract from SPECIESISM)

"The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and other "wildlife conservation" laws are old-speciesist. They afford some protection to species and other groups but no rights to individual nonhumans.

The MMPA is designed to protect "species and population stocks," not individuals. It expresses "concern for the health and safety of dolphin populations," not dolphin individuals. Like fishers, hunters, and trappers, the MMPA refers to nonhuman individuals as if… Continue
