"...within the next few decades, biotechnology can stop the animal holocaust. Genetic engineering will enable the human species cost-effectively to mass-produce edible cellular protein, and indeed all forms of food, of a flavour and texture indistinguishable from, or tastier than, the animal products we now eat. Vat-food will also be cheaper than 'livestock'. As our palates become satisfied by other means, the moral arguments for a cruelty-free diet will start to seem compelling. When it becomes economical to do so, the Western(ised) planetary elite will finally award the sentient fellow creatures we currently abuse and kill a moral status akin to human infants and toddlers. Veganism, though not in quite the contemporary sense of the term, will become the norm. And by a happy coincidence, in the future even the humblest snack will taste more delicious than the ambrosial food of the gods..."
