In the essay “Let Them Eat Dog”, Foer did just that to strengthen his point of view that dogs are really just another ordinary, to use his words “remarkably unremarkable…”(Foer) animals out in the wild. He quoted “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” from the famous allegorical novella – “Animal Farm” by George Orwell (Foer), which gives the reader a glance of inequality on how different animals are treated differently. Foer utilizing the quote to encourage the audience to think about what is it that makes it acceptable for the public to consume beef, pork, even horse meat but it is a taboo to eat dog.

Old Major talked about how the humans made the animals work and then took everything that they worked for and barely fed them. "Man is the only creature that consumes without producing.

He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself” (Orwell).
He also uses some personal examples to better prove his case. One personal example is that he talks to many people who are vegetarians that are eating meat at a restaurant, but they claim to not eat red meat at home.

This shows that society has involved into a world where everyone uses excuses which further proves his point of a “meat-crazed society”
There were no food-related inspections or prerequisites that protected consumers from buying unhealthy or tainted meat. This lack of protection was alarming, as more than two-hundred diseases can be spread through food. There were also few laws that restricted the freedoms of business owners, which made it extremely easy for these owners to abuse their workers.

Good nutrition is a significant part of a healthy lifestyle and is a principle being taught every day around the world. The dilemma of hunger is faced by many countries; according to the World Food Programme, “795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active lifestyle” (“Hunger”).

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.

The topic of factory processed meats is a very controversial topic. Is eating meat wrong?
