This is a question for Rosa Labs: What are the ethical ramifications of Soylent? For me, it’s huge that I’m not eating (as much) meat. I know a lot of others have their own requirements- gluten-free, soy-free, cruelty-free, vegan, vegatarian, etc. I’m not interested in debating the merits of those diets. Rather, I’m trying to compile a list of talking points that I can use to convince others to try Soylent.
Beyond diet, though, there are other considerations such as intellectual property. (This is very important to me as a programmer) Under what license does Soylent fall? It would be awesome if we could classify the recipe itself under the Gnu license.
If we are going to push Soylent to it’s full potential, we need to know that for today and forever after, Soylent remains an ethical product.
