Human Exceptionalism

Peter Singer Spouts Off Again

There is nothing new in this Peter Singer opinion piece that he hasn’t written before, and more extensively. Being human isn’t what matters, it is being a person. In 35 years, we will have euthanasia, therapeutic cloning, etc. Only religious fundamentalists can object; yadda, yadda, yadda. I only link the article because it was published in the elite Foreign Policy magazine, which is a product of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (in this case, perhaps, the peace of the grave). It is always good to be reminded about the dark future for which many in the intelligentsia yearn.
