Sztybelian Pragmatism versus Francionist Pseudo-Pragmatism
The discussion provides comparative expectations of animal suffering and death.
Abolitionists sometimes worry that animal "welfarist" laws will lead to an increase in animal consumption among a more complacent public. Thus these mostly Francionist abolitionists actually resist anti-cruelty measures. However, spikes in animal consumption need to be put in overall context suggesting that Sztybelian pragmatism actually leads to less animal suffering and death. I recommend you print out this 4-page PDF single-sided, although that takes more paper, because you will need to refer back to illustrated Figures as well as a detailed table.
The paper is available for pdf download.
