Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

ARZone Podcast 6 ~ Intervention, Interaction and Non-Interference

This time the ARZone team of Carolyn Bailey, Barbara DeGrande, Tim Gier and Roger Yates explore the difficult and complex issue about whether human beings should interfere in the lives of other animals - indeed, should we, as philosopher David Pearce suggests, micro-manage every part of the planet in the name of compassion and in order to prevent pain anywhere and everywhere?


With a special appearance from Dave Pearce.

Hey Olly, 

Have you had a chance to listen to Dave's podcast we recorded earlier this week yet? He explains his position in great detail here.

Let me know what you think if you get a chance to listen to it. :)

David identifies as a negative utilitarian but does he accord any value to the life of individuals as oposed to just seeing them a disposobal recepticles that can be filled with or empty of pleasure or pain.
