Meat is Never OK

Professor and The Atlantic food writer James McWilliams explains why even sustainable meat is not OK.

Yesterday, The Atlantic published an article by James McWilliams on why eating meat, even when it is sustainably farmed, is not OK. The history professor explains that while free-range animal agriculture is better than factory farming, it does not address the fundamental issue that animals, like humans, are sentient beings and experience suffering. He suggests that the free-range versus industrial debate is based on viewing animals as property, but if we were to consider animals as equals, it would force people to ask radically different questions. McWilliams is also the author of Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly, in which he promotes eating less meat.
