A New York Times’ call for carnivores.
A New York Times’ ethicist Ariel Kaminer calls for carnivores who believe in eating animals. If you believe you can make a clear argument that meat eating is ethical, email your words to email@example.com.
The call was posted only yesterday and there are already 100+ comments on the article. Go check the interesting discussion. Yes, it is a hot potato, and I am looking forward to the result.
Original Post is on NYtimes.
