Although sceptical about the capacities of human reason, I do feel reason should be utilised by humans when making ethical decisions. Reason has thus far indicated to us that, alongside humans, nonhuman animals are sentient. Based on this knowledge, coupled with a rejection of (or ongoing attempt to reject) deluded and destructive anthropocentrism, I feel the least we can do as human beings is behave compassionately toward nonhuman animals (and fellow humans). The practice of veganism is a moral imperative in this connection.
