Philosophy 2

To refute Jeff McMahan’s argument in his article The Meat Eaters we must first establish the premises behind it. McMahan basically states that animal suffer when they are killed, animal suffering is like human suffering, we intervene when humans suffering, therefore animal suffering is bad and we should stop all animal suffering, and to stop all animal suffering means the desire of the extinction of all carnivorous species.
The big problem that can be seen in this argument is when it comes down to human suffering being the same as animal suffering. This premise is very much based on Singer’s argument that states: equality requires equal consideration of interests, if something can suffer it has... View More »

However, when we mass produce chicken and cows to satisfy a world full of consumers, we don’t have to worry about if they have interests or not because we have already established that chickens and cows do not, therefore they are not equal to us and their human is not like human suffering.
Based on this negation of Singer’s argument and in turn McMahan’s premise, there then is no valid reason behind McMahan’s conclusion that we should desire the extinction of all carnivores just because animals suffer. So what if they suffer? It isn’t inherently bad, only human suffering is bad because humans actually have interests, and if they don’t it’s not crucial to our economy nor efficient to mass produce mentally retarded humans, which is why we don’t.

    America And The Global Legal System

    3870 words, 16 pages

    Introduction The global legal system is a very complicated and vague network of international, state, and non-government bodies. Each organization influences each other, but it is evident that the United States holds a singular importance in the system. Ever since the country entered the global stage, a far change from its beginnings as a nation with expressed neutrality, it has continuously played a growing part. The United States is able to play a part in the global legal system through its large influence in foreign affairs. Considered the current hegemon, it has been able t

    DARFUR... Every so often an event of global concern transpires before the eyes of the world but yet appears to be recapped with enormous variation. Whether this event is of social, economic, political or environmental concern, certain points of information are naturally of greater significance to particular parties: hence the variation in reporting. The discrepancy in information is generally evident from one geographic region to the next. If one were to take any event of global importance such differences would be extremely evident. Take the event that occurred on May 5th, 2006. On this da

    Iraq & Vietnam

    3335 words, 14 pages

    Events in Iraq have prompted some people on the left to make comparisons to the American experience in the Vietnam War. These people argue that the United States has put itself into an in-extractable “quagmire” from which there is no feasible withdrawal. This type of reasoning by historical comparison is not wise because no two historical events are completely alike. In the case of Iraq and Vietnam, extreme caution should be exercised in comparing two wars so far apart in historical circumstances, geography, and time. It becomes pretty obvious that the differences between the two conflicts

    In the early 20th century Europe had acquired global dominance. Primarily its progress was due to the Industrial Revolution. However, there were many other factors that contributed to the rise of Europe. The first was the formation of alliance systems, which allowed for long term relationships between countries. Next was a sense of nationalism, which gave countries unity and allowed them to work together for the good of their country. Another factor was militarism and the arms race. Each country wanted to show their power through the military, even though they didn’t want to fight. Two
