Well it's really not all that difficult. Plants don't feel pain. Plants don't suffer. That's the specific claim. My general claim goes something like this; all things being equal, a world with less pain and suffering is better than a world with more pain and suffering.

Do you consider that a contentious or provocative proposition?
