Dr. Block,

, I’ve came across  the interesting topic of monkey labor. I was wondering if monkey slaves would be compatible with libertarianism? Curious to know if you ever written or thought about this topic. I’ve attached a couple articles if you haven’t.

Dear Alex:

You have a weird, sick, perverted, disgusting mind, just like mine.

But we already “enslave” cows, horses, chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, make them do labor for us, even practice “cannibalism” on them; that is, we eat them. Why not monkeys too?

Best regards,
