I'm not dismissing ethics and morality altogether. Indeed, ethics and morality can be applied to all aspects of life and it depends on your perspective and situation.ThamiorTheThinker wrote:However, we DO, in fact, treat morality as though it holds some legitimate sway over our reasoning. I don't think it's fair to say that just because morality is a human construct, that we can't talk about it as though it matters.. in fact, to us, it DOES matter. You can't just dismiss morality like this so easily.
Is it ethical to impose your own subjective rules on others? Is it ethical to dictate the diets of others? What if some cannot afford the cost of the diet you demand of them? If you were to ban the production and consumption of meat then the remaining available food sources might increase greatly in cost. Some areas might not be able to produce or sustain a non-meat food industry and would be forced to import at even greater cost. Is it of good moral character to cause an increase of hunger in the world?
