Animal rights, II
I taught animal rights to some ninth graders last Friday. I based those two hours pretty much on Peter Singer’s classic Animal Liberation, although a good amount of information kindly provided by Animalia was in my use as well. Somehow I maganed to jam a song called Huipulla by Keuhkot into the palette as a motivating element. There was plenty of good discussion dealing with various forms of speciesism. I am quite sure the next time some of those students grasp a milk carton they might remember the contradiction between the happy cow drawing in the carton and the reality behind the product.
