  • I’d have to ask, what do you mean when you say the “cost […] of animal welfare”?

    I agree the chart is unrealistic, but perhaps for subtly different reasons.

    Surely there are some who would be happy to put a pricetag on the suffering of others, but on principle, I think such thinking should be avoided by vegans, regardless of if other people are comfortable doing so.

    What’s the cost of an animal’s life, human or otherwise?

    I recognize you’re trying to add in externalities that haven’t been included, but determining a cost of life links it to some sort of utility, which I don’t think it should be. Sentient lives should never be treated as a means.
