Nature is indeed savage, but animals seldom kill but for hunger.

The animals that get eaten in the wild don't know what it's like to be confined in a pen, wallowing in their own waste - only to die fat and tender.

Livestock warehousing, and mass killing will never be vindicated.
It will always be a symbol of greed, arrogance, and a barometer of the human condition.

Eating meat is OK if you hunt for it in an ethical manner.

Otherwise, vegetarianism is the holy grail for me.

What determines the "ethical manner?" What is the unchanging source of ethics? A source seems to be referred to here, but what is it?

Since I'm teaching the vegan debate in my critical thinking class, I appreciate all the pros and cons I can get. Thanks to all.

Nice post and blog! here I give you a website with a nice selection of documentaries about vegetarianism. Yes nature is wild, but are we included into the same category?. do we need to follow the same rules? we can always choose.
