In "Higher Laws," Thoreau makes a comparison between eating meat and cannibalism to communicate what idea?
The consumption of meat is a natural part of surviving. As animals too, must eat animal flesh.
The consumption of animal flesh is a moral injustice that civilization must evolve away from.
The consumption of animal flesh is acceptable as long as it is not extravagantly prepared.
The consumption of any living organism is as natural as living in nature. However, man should eat a balanced diet.
The consumption of animal flesh was vile to Thoreau. He could not imagine hunting of fishing for the purpose of hunting, killing and then eating an animal.
