Ive had a lkong life _ experience Speaks directly to his people Animal Farm Topic Tracking: Propaganda Propaganda 1: Old Major uses some techniques of propaganda in his speech to the animals - he identifies humans as the enemy, and attempts to unite them all against this common enemy. He promises that their lives will be better and easier if they do what he suggests and overthrow the humans. He also teaches them a simple, easy-to-remember song, Beasts of England, to inspire them with his ideas. Although he genuinely believes that he is acting in the animals ' best interests and is not trying to deceive them, this is all still propaganda. It is interesting to note how many times the old prize boar, Major, uses the word all in his speech to the animals as he calls for rebellion against Mr. Jones.
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. Berry presents the reader with both good and bad images to get them thinking about what changes they want to make to the food they buy and
When the time comes to “harvest” their flesh for meat, their deaths are executed so inefficiently that the animals often continue to struggle well into “processing”. On the other hand, some people argue that human consumption of animals should be morally accepted because, Christine Korsgaard, the Arthur Kingsley Porter Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University, questions that “What if it is not natural for animals to eat meat? How do we know? What if the only way that the growing human population can eat meat is through factory farming practices? Can we still imagine ourselves as a natural link in a chain of life when there is nothing natural about the way we raise and eat our food?
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.

He was fed a lot of meat when he was young, but when he realizes what he is eating he quits eating meat.

Many people invest their time and money in purchasing animals as a pet. It may come as a shock, but PETA also believes that no one should purchase any animal as a pet, and if one does own a pet they should be released. Amanda Radke earned a degree in agricultural communications at the South Dakota State University (“Amanda Radke, Freelance Contributor”). She voiced her opinion on the subject of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in an article, “PETA Hates Pet Ownership; Kills 1,456 Cats and Dogs in 2015.” Radke states, “It’s no surprise to farmers and ranchers that the extremist animal rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), has a different idea of what constitutes proper animal care.” PETA does not believe in owning any animal as a pet. In order to accomplish this mission PETA euthanizes innocent animals.
Wallace’s use of rhetorical strategies really gets the reader thinking, and thoroughly captures the argument of many vegetarians against the consumption of animals. David Foster Wallace really captures the use of pathos in his essay Consider
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.
In this article, there will be an argument made for the ideologies of welfarism and utilitarianism. At the core of welfarism it is believed that although humans can still use animals for various uses, we must also minimize the general suffering of the animals in questions. Opposingly utilitarianism is the belief system that we must maximize beneficial outcomes and neutralize dreadful outcomes for all parties. Both apply to a range of fields, that will be discussed further in the article. This includes the issues of killing animals for food, using animals for lab testing, and the counter arguments to both.
As the book closes with section three, Pollan journeys through the adventures of the hunter-gatherers, attempting to make a meal from his own hands as well as evaluating the morals and ethics of eating other animals.

The muckrakers of the progressive era not only satire the political wrongdoings but also rose a concern for consumer’s health. The publication of the jungle by Upton Sclair showed the reality of meat packing factory of Chicago. This caused the public outrage which soon caused the government to pass the Meat Inspection Act and the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 (Pure Food). This step of regulating the food by act was remarkable in terms of consumer’s health. Till today the freshness of the food is maintained by this act and is an important achievement achieved during this
In “Consider the Lobster,” David Foster Wallace presents a neutral view on the ethics of eating lobster and by extension other animals. I believe he wrote the article so his readers would consider the ethics of what they eat. That is how the article affected me . However, I have a problem with the article due to a bulk of the arguments against eating meat also applying to plants. As humans, we 're required to eat at least one of them.
What we eat affects not only us, but the animals, and the world. After learning the truth about where and how our meat and food products are prepared and the effects they cause on our bodies, I was shocked and disgusted. As a society, we can make a few small changes that will have a big and healthy impact on the world and how we live. Usually when you think about a cow, you picture a large farm, a red barn and cows eating grass. But this isn’t what actually goes on.
