Project #68494 - Speciesism

Need major help with my ethics paper. It needs to be 4-5 pages. The topic goes like this:

 

Peter Singer introduces us to the conccept of speciesism in his All Animals are Equal. He says,

 

Racists violate the principle of equality by giving greater weight to the interests of members of their own race when there is a clash between their interests of members of their own race when there is a clash between their interests and the interests of those of another race. Racists of European descent typically have not accepted that pain matters as much when it is felt by Africans, for example, as when it is felt by Europeans. Similarly those I would call "speciesists" give greater weight to the interests of members of their own species when there is a clash between their interests and the interests of those other species.

 

Do you agree with Singer here? Explain the role sentience plays in his argument. Present one of the objections to Singer's argument that he presents in his paper. Is Singer's response to that objection sufficient? Given Singer's argument, how can anyone continue to justify eating factory farmed meat? Are they simply immoral hypocrites? Is it possible to sufficiently justify hypocrisy? How can one internalize the fact that Singer is most likely right and yet still eat factory farmed meat? What is the requirement to acknowledge and incorporate philosophical truths in order to preserve an internally consistent sense of self?

EDIT: So I'm not gonna pay $93.50 for a paper. I was thinking like $50. $10-$12.50 a page sounds reasonable to me. Tuition and books already cost a shit ton of money as is. :/
