This is a disgrace: Peter Singer has won Australias highest civic award. From the Princeton press release:
Peter Singer, the Decamp Professor of Bioethics in the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University, has been awarded Australias highest civic honor. He was appointed Companion in the General Division of the Order of Australia for eminent service to philosophy and bioethics as a leader of public debate and communicator of ideas in the areas of global poverty, animal welfare and the human condition.
Singer is best known for advocating the ethical propriety of infanticide. But that isnt nearly the limit of his odious advocacy. Here is a partial list of some other notable Singer bon mots:
Singer supports using cognitively disabled people in medical experiments instead of animals that have a higher quality of life.
Singer does not believe humans reach full moral status until after the age of two.
Singer supports non-voluntary euthanasia of human non-persons.
Singer has defended bestiality.
Singer started the Great Ape Project that would establish a community of equals among humans, gorillas, bonobos, chimpanzees, and orangutans.
Singer supports health-care rationing based on quality of life.
Singer has questioned whether the continuance of our species is justifiable, since it will result in suffering.
Singer believes speciesism viewing humans as having greater value than animals is akin to racism.
Singer believes that animals should be given equal consideration with humans in utilitarian policy analyses.
Singer asserted that Australias greenhouse-gas emissions are morally equivalent to waging aggressive war on Bangladesh.
Well, you get the idea. As the old song says, its a sign of the times. The more radical and antihuman exceptionalism a public intellectuals views, the greater his or her chances are of receiving civic and academic accolades.
Peter Singer is one of the most evil men who has ever lived. I would put him up there with Hitler.

I feel like a stranger in a strange land. When sane people gain contol of the West then goverments need to be purged of these evil vermin.
Sick, the world is truly turned upside down morally!

Then be sure to vote for pro-life supporters.
Peter Singer is one of the most evil men who has ever lived. I would put him up there with Hitler.Or even worse. As evil as Rachel Carson.
Ignoring the fact that this is idiocy, why should anyone care, using Singer's ideology? Bangladeshis are just poor, brown people. Global warming may be bad for them, but it's good for fire ants and armadillos.
Since he has questioned the continuance of our species,does he question his own life’s continuance?
They never do. “Just enough of me, way too much of you.”
I doubt he finds much in common with the rest of humanity, as I suspect he considers himself superior to just about everyone else.
