  2. Hi, I recently listened to your podcast on animal agriculture. This is such an important topic and I am so glad y’all decided to address it. I noticed that one of the hosts thought capitalism was the cause of factory farming. I think this absolves consumers of responsibility for demanding and paying for animal products. These industries only exist because of consumers. The only way to stop factory farming is to reduce consumption. Also this is a moral issue. We see animals as a product for our use and not life with inherent worth and deserving of respect, which means that taking their lives unnecessarily is immoral. Although it’s not a popular opinion, it’s an important issue to raise.

    • Greetings Sarah,

      Thank you for listening, and I am glad you found the podcast informative. We listed some small and big solutions that everyday people can take to change the horrid factory farming system and exploitation of people and animals alike. I would disagree that saying capitalism is the root of the problem lets people off the hook. In a capitalist system, the powers that be will always cut corners to maximize their profits. So the economic system is at fault. But people create these systems, and collectively we can change those systems. In the U.S., this is a slow and time-consuming process that is real positive change. But we have to meet people where they are at. It takes conservations like the one we are having and the ones on the Question Culture podcast to help people think about their consumption habits. But we also need to hold Agri-businesses accountable too.

      Best,

      Lornett
