=== THE LINE ===

* Dolphin
* Rodent
* Insect
* Horse
* Camel
* Dog
* Cat
* Human (stranger)
* Human (acquaintance)
* Human (family)
* Human (self) ?

In our society, you can eat everything above THE LINE, and nothing below. The ordering and placement of THE LINE are both somewhat subjective, but you get the point.

My theory is that THE LINE will constantly move up that list until it's not acceptable to eat any animals. It will take a very long time. This is not to say that societies where THE LINE is in a different place than ours are necessarily better or worse societies.

In the interest of full disclosure, I enjoy eating the occasional animal.

There's no game on that list! Plus I recently had horse sausage. :-D
I think the line should be rearranged to ethically sourced vs not ethically sourced and I have the feeling we may run out of awesome fish sooner that that the line reaches the top.

Game is automatically below the line since hunting is mean.

Just kidding, that was an omission on my part. I think one should be allowed to eat anything one catches oneself!
