Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

McWilliams writes about farmer Bryan Welch, someone with clear emphatic feelings towards farm animals but nevertheless views them as creatures for food. The inherent contradiction disturbs Bryan at a moral level, and thus being a farmer with a conscience, McWilliams believes there is a unique opportunity for dialogue. He proposes:

Vegan advocates spend a great deal of time and effort discussing and debating strategies of reform, pathways to abolition, methods of conversion, and so on. Rarely, though, do we include in our discussions the perspective of people such as Bryan Welch—active farmers with a conscience. What I would like to do is this: let’s compile some comments to this post, send them to Bryan, and begin a discussion that includes this farmer who is clearly open to what we have to say. In other words, let’s try something novel: let’s reflect, respond, and . . .drum roll . . .  listen.
