In the latest installment of our vegetarian dialogue, Charles Eisenstein gets nasty and compares vegetarians to Rene Descartes. Oh come on, Charles! Is there a Godwin's Law for vegetarian debates? Then he slurs us as a horde of little Jeremy Benthams, running around formulating our meaningless moral algebra equations like a bunch of muppets! And he has the nerve to sign off "With gentleness"?? Gentle, my ass. This guy's as heartless as Swami Vivekananda.

But he says some very interesting things about complex biochemical systems in plants, suggesting that they might carry as big an information load as a central nervous systems. Hmmm. I don't know anything about that, but I like Charles and he seems real smart, so I'll assume everything he said is true.

See for yourself.
