In the passage “On Eating Roadkill”, Buhler makes effective use of ethos, pathos, and logos to get his argument across. In the passage, Buhler gives plenty of facts pertaining information on why we should eat roadkill, but in many people 's cases they would never do such a thing. Animals are being killed at a very high rate when it comes to non hunting issues, therefore you could argue a fact that eating roadkill would help the community by saving the amount of money people spend on groceries. Buhler also states that the meat that will come from the roadkill animals will be more healthy for vegans because there is nothing extra put on the meat for better taste. Although the thought of someone getting sick comes to mind for the most part if you 're saving money and eating more healthy how can you not be happy?
He then discusses the positive effects of the removal of the taboo of the consumption of dogs such as the solution for hunger in the world and the depletion of natural resources. He effectively convinces his audience of this ridiculousness by allowing the audience to form their own opinions based upon logic rather than emotions. Foer accomplishes this notion by using logical, pathetical, and ethical appeals to allow his audience to make educated opinions about the arguments presented and why they outweigh others. In Foer’s article, he
In the article “Let Them Eat Dog”, Jonathan Safran Foer addresses the taboo subject of humans using dogs as a form of protein and sustenance. He analyzes the intelligence of our canine companions in comparison to the species most Americans would believe to be acceptable to consume, such as: pigs, cows, and chickens. While their intelligence is relatively similar, even the most devoted of carnivores still wouldn’t consider dog as a meal option. “Despite the fact that it’s legal in 44 states” (Foer para 1), poses no additional health risks than any other meat, and tastes just as good, American people still refuse to cook the family dog. Foer goes on to mention how millions of dogs, as well as cats, are euthanized every year just in the United
2. I characterized the author’s “modest proposal” is for people not to eat meat. “Safran Foer wrote a nonfiction work expressing his views on vegetarianism,” that shows he doesn’t eat meat. The title “Let Them Eat Dog” that sound gross for people who loves dog, from that I kind of figure out it going to be something about eating meat or not eating meat and wonder if he going to talk about people should eat their dog or not. He used dog as example why people shouldn’t eat animal.
As Ann was about to devour the repelling meals she described in full detail the stomach- churning truth behind dog food. Although it may look delicious it is far from it. Not many would brave the task of trying out different typed of dog food just out of curiosity. But as the old saying goes, “curiosity killed the cat” and indeed she stated that at one point she would have faced death if she indulged on the greasy bite of dog food that had no absolute
“The ideal industrial food consumer would be strapped to a table with a tube running from the food factory directly to his or her stomach,” is one example of Berry’s use of imagery. Berry provides the audience with a sarcastic, vivid image of a lazy person being tube fed straight from a food factory to emphasize how ridiculous everyone is becoming. Likewise, he does this to make the reader come to the conclusion that the way that many people eat has gotten out of hand. On a lighter note, Berry provides his audience with an appealing image. He says, “If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade.” This image is very pleasant and persuades the readers to also want their meat to come from an animal who has lived a pure, chemical-free life.
Foer’s article provides a sense of humor as well as personal stories to attempt to persuade his audience for the ethical treatment of animals along with his personal solution for his own health and the health of his family. On a differing take on the solution, “Escape from the Western Diet” by Michael Pollan provides the complete change of our diet and way of life based around cooking and eating meals. however creates a more powerful and logical argument against the “Western Diet” in his article, He uses a combination of his credibility from his publications on health and foods, evidence against the practices of the medical community, along with his solution to the issue of obesity to create an article that draws in audience’s emotions and rationale. Pollan’s strongest points in his article was the use of credibility and his ability to bring logic and reason to most of his points against medical society and the publics solution to obesity. Pollan comes in with a stronger
I, like Mary Midgley, agree with Peter Singer in that humans should not harm or be cruel to animals if it is not completely necessary. I agree with his argument regarding animals being used for cosmetic testing and medical testing, and with his argument against harsh factory farming practices, but I find his moral argument against the use of animals for food questionable. I believe meat-eating as a dietary practice for all of humankind is justifiable. Peter Singer implies that humans and non-humans are equal in more ways than many people like to recognize, but one thing he fails to acknowledge is that humans and non-humans also share a shared instinct for survival.
Do you have a love of dogs? If so, then you will be very interested in this essay. I have conducted some research and even though I am not a dog lover I do not feel that all the pit bulls in Texas should be banned. The pit bulls only know what their owners teach them. Texas pit bull owners need to teach them to be good.
After I have read The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, I have really believed that it time for us to change how the meat, especially sausage, is made. Why is it that the meat we eat can be made with animals, even rats, running over it? I believe that more regulation should be put on the owners so that the meat is clean, without “...meat that had tumbled out on the floor...where the workers had tramped and spit..and thousands of rats would race about it.” (Doc. D) This is not a job that people would want to work at just because of the disgust. This industry has to be changed with stricter regulations that protect the workers and provide uncontaminated food to the
