"Ought" we to be vegan?

Posted on January 13, 2016 at 7:14pm 20 Comments

Zeno:  The philosopher David Hume pointed out that one can not logically deduce an "ought" from an "is."  There is nothing that we "ought" to do.  Morality is not an element in the periodic table, nor is it an objective and inalterable property of the universe.  Our morality will depend on our desires and circumstances.  If we wish to live and be happy, there are certain things that we need to do, but there is no "ought."  There is no universal cosmic code…

To the Conspiracy Theorist

Free Enquiry

        Free enquiry is important to me.  I believe that people have a right to air their views.  I do not wish to live in a society where the state can accuse you of thought crime and silence you.  Who gets to decide what ideas constitute thought crime or for that matter who has committed thought crime?  I suggest that we should not allow the state to decide.  We must uphold freedom of speech without exception, but let us add the proviso that in those cases where one is in fact inciting to…
