In the world of debating, this motion comes across reasonably often. However, it is a fun and enjoyable one. I shall start by proposing that vegetarianism should be compulsory.
First of all, vegetarianism should be compulsory because eating animals isn't fair! Is it truly right to allow these beautiful, amazing animals to die just to fill our stomach? I think not. The pain that these animals are inflicted on by us humans is morally wrong. Every day, we kill 200 million animals, and every year over 72 billion. Including wild-caught and farmed fishes, the total comes up to 3 billion every day. That is half the human population killed each day.
Secondly, the land destroyed and wrecked to give the animals we kill space is extraordinary. Every 3 seconds, farmers and deforestation workers destroy an area of land the size of a football pitch. In our current crisis, with climate change and all, the effect of us slaughtering animals and destroying habitats is utterly outrageous.
Finally, the idea of a food chain, and us being top of it, is a made-up fantasy that we use to try to make us feel better about wrecking animals and the Earth's life.
