Why is demi-veg morally better than being vegetarian? Why is eating a limited amount of humanely- raised meat morally better than eating a lot of humanely-raised meat? Need to answer this to head off vegetarianism. Hare ʼ s answer (short version): On utilitarian grounds, it ʼ s better for the animals to live, and have decent lives, and then be humanely slaughtered, than for them never to live at all. And without the demand for meat, they ʼ d never live at all.

Hare ʼ s answer: (a) The lives of animals raised on factory farms are so bad, that it ʼ s better for them never to live at all than to live their lives of suffering before being slaughtered and eaten.

    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.
