Vegans, Reloaded

A vegan’s response to The Matrix. (The bad guy eats Matrix steak; the good guys eat…what do they eat?)

Animal rights, Ecological Determinism and The Matrix.
As a vegan, I’m often confronted with various versions of this theory nonetheless, and even before the first Matrix movie was made, I used to ask my carnivorous interlocutors if manifestly more intelligent creatures would be justified in eating us. A similar argument is posited on one level by the two opening Matrix films. Presented with a world where humans are controlled by machines that are manifestly more intelligent than us, we are repelled, at least most of us are. It’s a film that strives on one level to put us in the position that we put animals in at the moment.
