1) What is your opinion on factory farming? Do you think it is ethical and/or sustainable?
2) What do you think some steps are to becoming less-dependent on this business model?

1) I think it's an awful, unethical, environmentally destructive corporatist nightmare.
2) I think the solution is primarily to eat more plant-based food. However, meat is delicious and nutritious, so I advocate eating local, organic, free-range animal meat.

Do you think that animals have rights? If so, why?

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

It's possible to reprogram your taste buds after several months so that you prefer a plant-based diet. According to the ADA and many prominent nutritionists like T. Colin Campbell, it's certainly not necessary to eat meat and the health consequences of eating meat are devastating (ask me if you want more info/citations on this).

"Free-range", especially in America, is a marketing ploy designed to ensnare those consumers who are thinking about straying from meat-based diets. It has no real legal meaning. Free-range animals are still mutilated like they are on factory farms (de-beaking, branding, castration, de-horning, mulesing). The male offspring of free-range layer hens are ruthlessly destroyed. The male offspring of free-range dairy cows are turned into veal. They're sent to the same hell-on-earth slaughterhouses that non-free-range animals are. Letting animals out of their cages for a few hours a day doesn't undo all the other torments animals endure on factory farms. "Free-range" is a sham.

Veganism is a perfectly elegant solution to the problem of animal abuse on factory farms and in slaughterhouse. It significantly reduces your risk of developing cancer (http://news.bbc.co.uk...), heart disease and diabetes. It's clearly better for the environment (http://www.mfablog.org...), and it's the clear moral choice for the billions of animals that are tortured and ground to pieces in this system.
