Against Meat
By Jonathan Safra Foer

Athenas Contreras
English 116-01

1. Should we continue encouraging (buying) factory raised animal consumption?
2. What consequences do factory raised animals cause?
3.Do you think people now a days care about how animals are treated inside factory's?
Something that was very interesting was the view he took out from his grandmothers story. The point he maid was that just being alive isn't enough. We should do more than just being alive whether you apply this morally or to vegetarians and caring about animals.
Foer brings out the truth about how factory raised animals are treated even if it is harsh. He mentions being a dedicated vegetarian. Besides his eating choices he lets the public know how he admires natural raised farms that treat animals right giving them an easy and fast death. Encouraging to at least take an alternative way to refuse and stop factory's if you don't agree with the way they work. You should always know where your food comes from and how it was grown or manufactured.

The author exposes the cruelty factory raised animals are being treated with. Explaining how chickens are horribly cramped, suffering blindness, internal bleeding, twisted legs & necks, and more. Cows are sometimes even skinned or dismembered while still conscious. He explains how after making an animal go threw all this it is just wrong to eat it. Foer would often reveal the story about his grandmothers hunger during world war II. Bringing out how she had refused a piece of meat offered to her. She had refused even though she had been starving for days. He would compare these two subjects taking things to further concepts about animals.
The author made his arguments very persuasive with the use of logos and pathos. The story of his grandmothers situation was the pathos, something we could relate to or imagine. As well for the examples he gave of the conditions farm animals live in. Bringing logos (reasoning) into out thinking about factory's treating animals cruelly. He wants us to reconsider how we see factory's, and that they are not treating animals right. In this modern world there are new ways we can survive without eating meat.
