Re: Animals and the NAP

Kyle Racette makes a good point, here, on the NAP and animal sentience. I don’t agree with him that human beings are herbivores, and should therefore be eating a vegetarian or vegan diet, but if I did I would stand alongside him and advocate for applying the NAP to animals. I don’t know if such a position can be logically defended on typical libertarian grounds, but I would adhere to it as a matter of personal integrity.
