More great stuff James A. Swan on Fish & Pain on National Review Online
Modern civilization gives us the security of the fish market. We do not have to catch our food to survive. But someone else does catch and kill it. It does not magically appear in the back of the market. But those who abstain from eating the meat and fish in their stores — because they do not want to be a part of causing pain or suffering in another living thing — are deluding themselves. They have stepped outside of the natural chain of life. And they have no other target than those who remain a part of the natural order.
It kinda makes you think. If the normal, average, mentally strong fisherman or hunter derives pleasure from what they do, aren't the antis really saying, "Hey. You can't enjoy yourself doing that because I can't enjoy myself doing that"? To me, that sounds more a little more like jealousy than concern over another species.
