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. He makes it clear that if we truly treat all animals equally regardless of their kind, eating dogs should not be a taboo; it should be more acceptable and equalized just like the
Summary-Response Paper #3 “In Defense of Eating Meat” is an article written by Timothy Hsiao from the Journal of Agriculture and Environmental Ethics, published by Springer Netherlands. Timothy Hsiao received his master’s degree in philosophy from Florida State University and currently teaches at Florida Southwestern State College. The article provides a thorough argument for the morality of meat eating. In the article, Timothy Hsiao begins with an outline of one school of thought of vegetarians that it is morally wrong to eat meat because of the pain caused in the killing of animals and that eating meat is unessential to survival. Hsiao then establishes his argument that even though eating meat may not be necessary, our “nutritional interests” are a valid enough reason to kill animals.
The essay that he wrote was "adapted" from his book Eating Animals. (pg.448) In Jonathans essay "Against Food" he talks about the way he grew up as a child and the reasons why he pursued being a vegetarian. He believed that animals should not be harmed for our benefit. No matter how hard it must be to give up something that you enjoy eating. Following what you believe can be extremely difficult due to many obstacles you may face while acquiring your goal but not giving up is the key.
I did not understand the solution to the problem of being a “conscientious meat eater.” The authors never really stated or concluded an answer to the problem in the article. In the text it says “For many people who care about the environment and animal welfare, choosing to eat humanely raised meat seems like an option.” This argues that only an option to the solution is informed to the reader, and that there is no real solution to the problem at hand. The whole point of the article, “Is It Possible to be a Conscientious Meat Eater”, is to inform the reader about the issue about meat, but because there is no solution to his argument; it makes his argument less effect as a whole when persuading
Candy feeds him milk. He cant chew nothing else.” (36). No one wants to be near him because of his dog. Keeping his dog is a personal choice that keeps him isolated because he can just shoot the dog and then he won't be as isolated. Dialogue, characterization, and word choice develops Steinbeck’s belief that loneliness and isolation is caused by both personal choice and social barriers.
There are many statements that prove that the dogs should not be executed for biting someone when it could possibly be our fault as a owner. Dogs should not be executed for biting someone because it could be how they were raised. People raise their dogs to protect them and their family or home. Just because the dog bites the mail man when they bring the mail, does not mean they are mean and should be executed. It means the owner trained the dog to protect the house and they are doing what they were trained to do.
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”). In Johnathan Safran Foer’s article, “Let Them Eat Dog,” published in the Wall Street Journal, he argues the ridiculous nature of the American cultural taboo of restricting society from the consumption of dogs for food. Foer begins the article first by talking about the reluctances of the consumption of dogs regardless of it being legal in the majority of states within the United States (Foer 689). 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.
You could save an animal from drowning, but you could save a person from drowning too; the choice is difficult. You could protest for animals to have rights and not be tortured at slaughterhouses and still eat them from factories that do things like kill them in an abusive way. Animal rights, animals should have some rights with some limitations. I have issues involving this topic about animal rights because i have mixed emotions about how we can experiment and torture animals but still have them as pets. In articles by Jeff McMahan, “Eat Animals The Nice Way”, and by Maureen Nandi Mitra, “Animals Are Persons, too”, they talk from two different positions where we should eat animals and another where we shouldn’t experiment on them and let them be.
The article wasn’t very well written in my personal opinion and I disagree with his support for banning specific dog breeds. In the article “Dog Ban Only Solution to Attacks”, the author expresses his opinion of banning certain types of dog breeds in America. The author opens his article by talking about the educational programs many schools have to teach children how to work with animals. He then makes the point that although it is important to teach children how to act around animals, that won’t keep dog attacks from happening. He supports this point by following it with a story of a zookeeper with twenty years of experience who was killed by a tiger.
For example, an individual might have a pet dog that lives with him. He or she has probably never even considered eating their beloved pet, but wouldn’t think twice about ordering a steak for lunch. If people eat cows regularly without thinking anything of it, why not eat a dog? The only answer to this is that humans have formed prejudice views based on species that make us perceive one animal as a loyal companion, and another as lunch. Marginal humans have inherent value which means they are granted rights.
There are solutions to ending world hunger that people will find it extremely outrageous and inhumane that are mentioned “A Modest Proposal” by Jonathan Swift and “Let Them Eat Dog” by Jonathan Foer. They both have ideas on how to end this problem so people in the world will not die or suffer from starvation. Although both articles “A Modest
