We’re All Michael Vick

I’ll admit, I often disagree with Gary Francione, and indeed have called him some nasty names when I’ve read some of his positions on various issues.

However, he’s written a challenging essay titled “We are all Michael Vick.” Read his arguments, and see if you agree.

Michael Vick may enjoy watching dogs fight. Someone else may find that repulsive but see nothing wrong with eating an animal who has had a life as full of pain and suffering as the lives of the fighting dogs. It’s strange that we regard the latter as morally different from, and superior to, the former. How removed from the screaming crowd around the dog pit is the laughing group around the summer steak barbecue?
