On Certain Fallacies (Part 2)

On Certain Fallacies (Part 2)

IN a former number of the Food Reform Magazine I attempted to expose the fallacies involved in the seven commonest objections to Vegetarianism, which then suggested themselves to my mind. In the present supplementary paper I wish to draw attention to five other arguments of a similar kind, on which I had not time then to dwell, but which are also very frequently advanced by our adversaries. We shall then have in all a dozen fallacies, which, with apologies to the shade of Sydney Smith, I shall venture finally to collect and exhibit in what I will call “The Flesh-eater’s oration.”
