Protecting the Animals?: An Abolitionist Critique of Animal Welfarism and Green Speciesism

Abstract [en]

This chapter delivers a critical view of modern animal welfarism and Green ideology as important vehicles for the reproduction of speciesism. Starting in the abolitionist animal rights critique of Gary L. Francione and Joan Dunayer, and employing the analytic framework of post-Marxist discourse theory, the argument is made for an understanding of speciesism as conditioned by dominant discourses of the human-animal relationship. The discursive meaning-systems of animal welfarism and Green thought are shown to sustain such speciesist hegemony in several ways. Specifically, it is revealed how these ideologies routinely feed into the “five faces of oppression” outlined by Iris Marion Young: exploitation, marginalization, powerlessness, cultural imperialism and violence.
