This famous quote, which some call the foundation of “utilitarianism,” appears in a series of essays by Scottish philosopher David Hume.
But the main point of this essay is that you can’t make any sense of the argument that people are not equal to each other because animals are different.
The problem is that Hume’s argument, while true, is extremely abstract and doesn’t really explain the existence of animals. It says that all animal are the same except for a few “special,” and these special ones are the animals that are more equal than others. This is because if you had a table, and placed all the chairs equal, you would still not have the chairs that were more equal than the others.
The problem with Humes argument is that it doesn’t explain how some animals are more equal than others. This is because the difference between an elephant and a giraffe is not something that can be compared to other animals. It’s something that humans (and other animals) can’t even understand. The same thing goes for the differences between a human and a gorilla.
Humes argument is essentially saying that if we can somehow compare all the different species of animals to each other, then we can all be equal. Now lets say that every animal is equal to everything else, but that they are equal to each other. But isn’t that a contradiction? You can’t just say that all animals are equal because all animals are equal. They are not.
Humes argument is like saying that all dogs are equal to all cats. Thats a contradiction because cats are not equal to dogs.
And I think the most important point in your arguments is that for every animal that has a name, it must have a unique food and shelter.

I agree with your first point. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings so you don’t scare animals away. But I disagree with your second point. Animals do not have names. They are not unique in the sense of having a variety of food and shelter. In fact, I’d argue that there are no animals in the world that are more equal than animals. Cats are not equal to dogs because dogs do not have a name.
The second point is that there is an infinite number of animals in this world. Every single animal has a name and a food source. The world is made up of such things as water, trees, and rocks. I’m not saying that there’s a “carnivore”, but it’s a great word to describe a creature.
