Re: Are there any vegetarians in here?
Humans are also supposed to be more intelligent than other animals and we are also supposed to have develop some form of a conscience, so it makes sense that some of us choose not to eat meat because of moral objections to eating animals, among other reasons.
"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
