The Ethics of PETA

“Richard Neuhaus has rightly called attention to the irony in the fact that people now wish to counter the dangers of scientism by appealing to nature. That is to appeal from one face of Janus to the other. Now that nature is no longer to be exploited, it is ready to be worshipped. It is still the whole show and we are still part of it, but now being part of it means that we no longer recognize anything that transcends it. For this mentality, the closer we are to nature and the further from civilization, the better off we are. The extreme hatred for human beings and corresponding love for animals that fills the satires of Jonathan Swift is coming into vogue.” (Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction, p. 170).
