Nothing biblical in factory farming

A thoughtful editorial by Nobel prize-winning author J.M. Coetzee (probably known to readers of this blog for his book "The Lives of Animals", although that is not specifically the work for which he received the prize) today (or guess yesterday by now, in Australia).

Coetzee was born in South Africa but moved to Australia as an adult and became an Australian citizen about five years ago. He has been a long-time vocal critic of apartheid, became outspoken on the issue of anti-terrorism laws after 911 and recently began speaking out against animal cruelty and in favor of animal rights as well.

Check out his editorial in the Sydney Morning Herald...
