egoism, relativism, the divine command theory, utilitarianism, Kant, Ayer,

thinker you are.)

2.

justifies eating meat while agreeing with Singer. (You need to explain the
way in which he agrees with Singer to answer this.)

3. 
(a) What is Foer’s mission?  (b)
What is Bittman’s explanation for how it is possible for factory farming
employees to continue doing what they do?
