(From the blog of the famous Austrian philosopher and animal ethicist: Helmut F. Kaplan)
In many areas of life, over time, wide and profound changes have taken place. Let us remember the immense progress in medicine, technology and science. Or the great works in literature and music.
Only in one area has not changed, no improvement since the Stone Age: the food. We still eat like wild animals.
Meat eating (and the related consumption of other animal products) is THE anachronism of modern man, an ecological, economic, medical and ethical madness: this gruesome habit destroys the environment, is uneconomic and unhealthy, causes hunger and is a crime against the animals.
