Just one point I am missing in this debate. The issues concerning humans'
relation to other animals should be articulated in the light of what Marx calls
humanisation of nature - not enslavement. There is a passage in Capital where
 Marx tallks about humans relation to donky. The implication is this: if
humans  would deal with a donky as donky they would degrade themselves to a donky.
 Therefore they must deal with a donky as a human as much as possible. So
Marx's  point is not enslavement but humanisation of organic as well as anorganic
