Of course, animals communicate, but only on primitive levels such as mating, hunting or directional. As for emotions, whether animals have emotions is debatable because for certain chemical responses to be called feelings, that the being in question needs to have a conscious awareness of their state. With this definition, it becomes much harder to say whether animals experience feelings in the same conscious manner even though the neurochemical signatures are similar.
Of course, humans are animals, it is not that we're so much better than they are, we stepped up the food chain with our brains; otherwise before, humans were on the bottom.
First, if lions could factory farm zebras, they would, but since they are a primitive animal, they only survive on present consumption.
Second, we have options only because animals are factory farmed, if not, millions would starve if not billions. Then, humans would be forced into a primitive and agrarian economy, and this whole computer thing wouldn't exist because productivity would plummet due to no food supplies.
Third, the consumption of meat is the reason why man has evolved into what he is now with our brains, in which we created tools, before our brains developed, humans were strictly gathers.
