10-03-10 Abolition Versus Welfare: The Argument for Abolition

This week on the show I discuss why vegans should advocate the abolitionist approach to animal rights, not the welfarist or new welfarist approach. I talk about how welfare reforms provide very little protection for animals, how welfare reforms are economcially effecient for institutional animal exploiter, why welfare makes the public feel better about exploiting animals, why new welfarism accepts defeat before it evens starts and why promoting ‘humane’ animal products makes about as much sense as promoting ‘humane’ child pornography, rape, murder, slavery etc.

Lastly, I read out my poem, “I Will Never Feel The Sunlight”
