An Animal’s Place

[13/11/2002]

An Animal’s Place (The New York Times). “At the same time many people seem eager to extend the circle of our moral consideration to animals, in our factory farms and laboratories we are inflicting more suffering on more animals than at any time in history. […] Half the dogs in America will receive Christmas presents this year, yet few of us pause to consider the miserable life of the pig — an animal easily as intelligent as a dog — that becomes the Christmas ham.” (Vía Arts & Letters Daily.)
