[Question] How useful is it to use a slavery/​factory farming comparison as a decision making heuristic?

  • I think some forms of slavery and factory farming are two of the top five worst things that humans have ever done

  • All of my family and close friends eat factory farmed meat

  • I like to think that if my family or friends kept a slave I’d probably boycott meals at their place!

  • Why shouldn’t I boycott events that serve meat from factory farms?

I want to be Benjamin Lay but it isn’t easy.
