For those of you who haven’t read it, novelist J.S.F.’s article in the New York times “Against Meat” is pretty interesting.  Here are a couple snippets I found especially thought-provoking:

“To give up the taste of sushi, turkey or chicken is a loss that extends beyond giving up a pleasurable eating experience. Changing what we eat and letting tastes fade from memory create a kind of cultural loss, a forgetting. But perhaps this kind of forgetfulness is worth accepting — even worth cultivating (forgetting, too, can be cultivated). To remember my values, I need to lose certain tastes and find other handles for the memories that they once helped me carry.”

“Eating factory-farmed animals — which is to say virtually every piece of meat sold in supermarkets and prepared in restaurants — is almost certainly the single worst thing that humans do to the environment.”

“Try to imagine any end other than taste for which it would be justifiable to do what we do to farmed animals.”
