Why do people raise animals only to slaughter them and then sell the meat to other people? In Paul Schwennsen’s essay “The Ethics of Eating Meat” he talks about whether or not it is ethical to eat meat. “Ethics exist as a social shorthand; a distilled collective conscience that varies with the social reality it reflects. Ethics do not stand like clean cut traffic stops in the path of natural urges; they are more like cautionary rumble strips as we careen down lives strewn with choices” (Schwennesen 179). Schwennesen comes off that eating meat is ethical.
On first thought the sound of eating roadkill is just disturbing, but there are many people who believe roadkill is food being put to waste. Buhler begins to build his credibility with some facts about eating roadkill such as “It is the perfect meat for vegetarians and vegans”, and “Mutual Automobile Insurance Company estimated that 1,232,000 deer were hit by cars in the United States”. Is it possible to ever catch me eating roadkill? Probably not, but some things Buhler state seem to make sense. In the passage “On Eating Roadkill”, Buhler makes effective use of ethos, pathos, and logos to get his argument across.
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.
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
“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.
As stated by the Guardian, the FSAI found horse DNA in over one-third of the beef burger samples, and pig in 85% of them. The majority of the beef ready meals also contained pig DNA but not horse. One beef burger sample from Tesco turned out to be 29% horse instead of beef. 1(The Guardian 15/02/2013) The findings of the FSAI report revealed a system of gross negligence by certain companies to distort the food supply chain and profit from selling goods that were falsely labelled, so the consumer would buy them. Opportunism: When a person or company acts in opportunistic fashion they are seeking to benefit their own position through guile.
The poem suggests that this is a result of the hatred of humans and the easiest way to “feed they lion” and make “they lion grow”(Levine 5). It gives off the a tone to the reader that there is war or that there once was war. Levine’s word usage is what gives the poem its unfortunate tone right from the start. Rather than choosing softer language, he starts his poem with words a phrases like “acids of rage” (Levine 3) and
Pit bull owners need to treat their pit bulls nicely. It is just like it states in the golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. That does not just apply to humans, it applies to animals too. Dogs ' are not penurious or nice based on their breed, it is based on how their owners '
Rhetorical Analysis “Down on the factory farm” The last thing that comes to our mind when we order a piece of steak at a restaurant is how that animal we are about to eat was being treated while they were alive. According to author Peter Singer’s article "Down on the factory farm” he questions what happened to your dinner when it was still an animal? He argues about the use and abuse of animals raised for our consumption. In Singer’s article he states personal facts and convincing statistics to raise a legitimate argument. Peter Singer’s lead us in these issues throughout the article to point out how complex our choices of food have become.
However BSL is just a quick fix and the dangerous dogs can't be remedied quickly. In all reality BSL should be called breed discrimination laws. There are two types of BSL bans, and owner regulations. Bans make it illegal to house, harbor, import, train, or breed the specific dog breed that has been banned. Ownership regulations don't outright ban the breed but rather makes it extremely difficult to own a pit bull.There is a long list of regulations that need to be meet to obtain a dog such as liability insurance mandatory spay or neuter and muzzled in public.
