I was perusing the NY Times the other day and came across this gem:
The article mentions that the dialogue on food, especially healthy, ethical eating, is controlled by vegetarians or those who largely abstain from meat (Jonathan Safran Foer, Mark Bittman, Michael Pollan, etc.). Meat eaters, it seems, have “surprisingly little to say” in this important discourse. So, the NYT is opening up the floor for omnivores to discuss the ethical reasons TO eat meat. I remember the alma matter for all of our bloggers, Geneseo, had a debate by professors in the philosophy department on this very topic when we were in school (yay Geneseo).
The NYT contest ends April 8, but I think we can have our own mini-discussion right here. I love a lively debate, so meat eaters, let’s hear why it is ethically sound to eat animal protein. Go!
