civilized people do not. Why then do we consider animals as proper role models for diet?

If anything makes us "human," it's our ability to control what comes naturally. In the name of civility, we've already stopped fighting, stealing, biting, and raping. And really, this was a fantastic idea. Whoever thought of it deserves an award. And though we've come far, I suspect that some of our more unpleasant (though natural) urges and appetites remain. In the name of civility, we've already stopped acting like wild animals. For the sake of our health, environment, and conscience, perhaps we should stop eating like them too.
