*****THESE QUESTIONS MUST BE ANSWERED IN THE PAPER.*****
Singer, Regan and Simmons (and others) argue that it’s (prima facie) wrong to raise and kill animals to eat them and that it’s wrong for most people to eat meat and other animal products. What are their arguments, or any of their arguments (the ‘why’ in support of their conclusions)? Are their arguments — or any arguments for vegetarianism or veganism — sound? Why or why not? (Discuss as many arguments as you’d like! The more the better. )
What are the best or most interesting objections to those arguments for vegetarianism or veganism (that is, reasons given to think that those arguments are unsound) OR arguments that “no, vegetarianism or veganism is not morally obligatory: it’s not wrong to not be a vegan or vegetarian?” Are these arguments sound or not? (Discuss as many arguments as you’d like! The more the better. )
Singer argues that if racism is wrong, then speciesism is wrong. Regan argues that if human beings have rights, then (many) animals have rights. And if speciesism is wrong and animals have rights then, at least, raising them to eat them is wrong. Explain their reasoning and whether you agree or not and why.
What are the arguments on the relations between animal agriculture and climate change? What are the arguments between animal use and pandemics? You can Google both these topics to see what you find. What do you find and what’s your reaction to what you find?
