Taste and Torment: Why I Am Not a Carnivore
It is easy to cultivate psychopathy in our children: We need only tell them the lie that eating meat is necessary for survival and health, that since animals also do it without remorse, it is the Law of Nature, and that in any case animals are raised and slaughtered in a "humane" way (you just have to avoid viewing Google images on slaughterhouses). In fact, by exactly the same cultural means we could (again) instill in our young the taste and the justification for rape, torture, enslavement, and genocide.

Abstract

It is easy to cultivate psychopathy in our children: We need only tell them the lie that eating meat is necessary for survival and health, that since animals also do it without remorse, it is the Law of Nature, and that in any case animals are raised and slaughtered in a "humane" way (you just have to avoid viewing Google images on slaughterhouses). In fact, by exactly the same cultural means we could (again) instill in our young the taste and the justification for rape, torture, enslavement, and genocide.
