Benefit vs harm


I wanted to create an alphabetical list of actions that cause pleasure or benefit to one party and suffering to the other. Some of these are looked down and illegal in our society, but some are still perfectly legal. But they all cause unnecessary suffering to somebody so I believe those should be reconsidered.

  • Animal testing
  • Bullfighting
  • Child molestation
  • Circuses with animals (including aquatic animals)
  • Dairy and eggs (in most cases)
  • Eating meat
  • Hunting / fishing
  • Kidnapping
  • Buying leather / fur
  • Murder / serial killing (depending on the killer and reason)
  • Pesticides / “pest” control
  • Racial cleansing
  • Rape
  • Slavery / low paid workers
  • Theft
  • Torture
  • Zoos (in some cases)
