Re: [RC] Slaughter - Truman Prevatt

I'm not going to comment on pros or cons of who eats what animals for what reason. However, in some islands in the Pacific - probably other places people used (and I suspect in some still do) eat people.

According to the argument below that's okay?

Ah, the slope that gets so slippery.

What we eat and what we slaughter for food is an issue of ethics - and the ethics is tied up in culture. Cultural ethics do change and evolve over time. Society is always making laws based on the ethical considerations of the social moral culture. I don't see this issue going away anytime soon nor do I see a consensus on it.


Remember, every pet you have ever owned is just food for someone in another
country somewher in the world. Including cats and dogs. What animals we eat
is a cultural issue, not a morality issue.
