… which of our practices would strike him as most barbarous?
The author of this: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/15/magazine/15IDEA.html asks that question. He then answers it with “punishment by imprisonment”. He gives some darn good reasons on why, but I’m thinking that many of you may have different opinions. For me it’s obvious: killing animals for food. Society, for the most part, agrees that murder is wrong and that we should respect life. I really feel that in the near future, most civilized humans will not eat meat because there is no good reason to end a life for your pleasure. Anyway, that’s my answer. What’s yours?
