Liberation Movements and Moral Beliefs Liberation movements require us to examine our long-held moral beliefs and determine if they inevitably lead to the benefit of one group over another. Practices we once thought natural come to be seen as the products of unjustifiable prejudices. Moral horizons expand as the moral principle of equality is extended and reinterpreted.

Liberation Movements and Moral Beliefs Singer believes that it is time to examine some of our moral views and advocates a new liberation movement. Singer wants this new liberation movement to lobby for the rights of animals. He says that we ought to “extend to other species the basic principle of equality that most of us recognize should be extended to all members of our own species” (569).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
