(I often get questions about that one. Turns out there’s more crossover between epistemology and AI studies than you’d think.)
Ah we have reached the “I am more communist than thou” stage of the vegan-meat-workers debate.
Don’t understand the assumption that conditions for agri workers are horrible but that’s why vegans are assholes like conditions in the meat industry are so great?
There are actually two unrelated arguments wrapped up in there; one of them is bullshit, and one of them is not.
The bullshit argument is that, because produce workers are exploited and vegans are in favour of consuming produce, therefore vegans are in favour of human exploitation. It’s a clumsy rhetorical bludgeon wielded primarily by those more concerned with scoring points against vegans than with actually saying anything substantive, and can safely be disregarded.
The non-bullshit argument revolves around the fact that, as things stand, the exploitation of argicultural workers is a part and parcel of a broken economic system that places food with no body count attached beyond the financial means of most consumers. Certainly, it’s possible to eat without exploitation, for example, by restricting one’s consumption to local, sustainably grown produce - if one can afford to do so. For the rest of us, however, it’s not a question of whether anyone suffers to bring us our daily meals, but merely a question of whom.
Consequently, while veganism as a lifestyle choice raises no particular issues, one must recognise that engaging in veganism as an ethical stance is, in practice, a luxury of the wealthy. Those who pride themselves on the fact that their food is produced without exploitation and look down on those who can’t make the same claim typically fail to recognise that most folks simply don’t have a choice.
