‘Animal, Vegetable, Miserable’: Part 2

For the second entry in this ongoing series (Part 1 is here), I link to “The Ethical Choices in What We Eat”, eight published letters to the editor of The New York Times in response to Gary Steiner’s “Animal, Vegetable, Miserable”.

I believe that many persons are likely to agree with the anti-vegan letters in that collection, for those arguments, which may superficially seem sensible, are very common and are frequently accepted as among the best counterarguments to the philosophies behind veganism and animal rights.  I will discuss each such letter’s serious shortcomings in the next entries in this series.
