Цитаты Питер Сингер


„To give preference to the life of a being simply because that being is a member of our species would put us in the same position as racists who give preference to those who are members of their race.“

— Peter Singer, Practical Ethics
Context: Speciesism is an attitude of prejudice towards beings because they're not members of our species, so just as racism means that you're prejudiced against beings who are not members of your race and sexism means you're prejudiced against people of the other sex. So we humans tend to be speciesist in we think that any being that is a member of the species homo sapien just automatically has a higher moral status and is more important than any being that is a member of any other species, irrespective of the actual characteristics of those beings.
