Last year I wrote a three part series dealing with abolitionism versus welfarism.
It’s time to dig those articles out of the archives and take another look. Read with a close eye, for the articles are rather succinct. Here they are, the 3-part-series:
- Is Abolishing Animals’ “Property Status” The First Step To Liberation?
- Criticism Is Not Enough
- Why We Must Do More
The debate, if you’re not aware, is about whether animal advocates ought to work to improve the lives of animals within the existing animal exploitation paradigm or should they instead work to abolish the entire system. If the latter, what is the best method for achieving that goal?
If this topic interests you, please go read those articles if you haven’t already.
