For a show that gets so much right, the scene discussed below leaves me wondering if it is demonstrating self-awareness of liberal ignorance on animal ethics, or if it is merely exemplifying its entrenchment in liberal ignorance over issues of animal ethics.
Horse-drawn carriages are no longer necessary in today’s day and age. Too many horses suffer significantly pulling carriages down busy urban streets and the practice needs to be banned immediately.

To the executives at Perdue Foods, chickens are vehicles of protein and, more importantly, material investments they expect to turn a profit. As a result, animal welfare standards fall by the wayside and recalls follow.
Eco-conscious grocery stores like Whole Foods claim their meat is “humane.” The certification is supposed to signify that the animal was slaughtered humanely, but there’s no such thing as humane slaughter.
