  • Speciesism And The Idea Of Equality Analysis

    Steinbock brings up, but there are somethings that we need to look at. For hundreds of years, humans have been on the top of the food chain. But that doesn’t mean that mankind isn’t outnumbered by animals. There are far more non-human animals than there are human in the world when you consider there are millions upon millions of different species. Just because we farm, or experiment on animals does not mean that we as Homo sapiens haven’t earned that right at the top of the food chain.

Steinbock asserts many good points in her article that proves the point that we are speciest and have, to an extent, no care for the fellow species on this planet. She didn’t point out that there are many animals in the world and that even she would be fine swatting a fly out…
