Abolitionist Approach Podcast

23 episodes in the feed.


Gary Francione discusses and explores various aspects of the idea that we ought to abolish, and not merely regulate, animal exploitation. The Commentary will promote ethical veganism and creative, non-violent vegan education as the primary forms of activism to move toward the abolition of animal use.

Commentary #11: Discussion with Professor Gary Steiner
6 Dec 2009 at 8:26pm

Dear Colleagues:

In this, Commentary #11, I have a discussion with Gary Steiner, Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Philosophy Department at Bucknell University. Gary recently had an editorial in the New York Times about veganism and we talk about the reactions that he got to his editorial, including the criticisms from welfarists, many of whom praise slaughterhouse designer Temple Grandin and other supporters of speciesist exploitation.

We also discuss how welfarists refuse to engage abolitionists in debate because they have nothing to say in response to the argument that welfare reform merely increases the production efficiency of animal exploitation.
