PostSubject: Unhinged pseudo-philosopher Peter Singer sparks debate on wisdom of funding guide dogs   Tue May 05, 2015 3:32 am

With one of the world's most controversial thinkers on hand, Monday night's Q&A was bound to offer some curly conundrums. And so it was that Peter Singer came to the panel offering guidance on the following; how many slices of cake to eat at a kid's birthday party; guide dogs - good or bad?; and a diverting final debate that could really keep you up nights - should the courts grant human rights to chimpanzees?



Between the dogs and the chimps, another animal-related question lurked unasked - was Q&A finally jumping the shark? - but in the context of the debates it all sort of made sense, even if you were wondering why everyone avoided the elephant in the room, Singer's far more confronting opinions on mercy killing of the severely disabled.

But for Monday night's purposes, the renowned ethicist's thoughts on the wisdom of funding guide dogs for the blind were probably provocative enough. In a debate over the best way to spend one's charitable dollar, Singer mounted what in a philosopher's lecture hall would sound an impeccably logical case but which may have played less well in suburban living rooms.

Singer should be taken to an unlicensed veterinary surgeon in say Mexico, and humanely disposed of...

Well, after a prolonged and painful experimental removal of all his limbs... at least!
