Leftist Scientists Defend Cannibalism

I am always wondering what the next step Leftists will use to try to bring down civilization.

NewScientist reports:

Is it time for a more subtle view on the ultimate taboo: cannibalism? ...

IT IS the ultimate taboo: in most societies, the idea of one human eating another is morally repugnant. Even in circumstances where it could arguably be justified, such as when a plane crashed in the Andes in 1972 and starving passengers ate the dead to survive, we still have a deep aversion to cannibalism. ...

Ethically, cannibalism poses fewer issues than you might imagine.

No, there was no need for the passengers to eat the dead to survive. All they had to do was to send a couple of players on the soccer team to hike into town to call for help. But they were too lazy, until half of them were dead.

The article does not mention Haiti, but it appears to be written to make us have a more favorable view towards places like that.

Interesting. Cannibalism has traditionally been a practice of the right but if leftists have indeed taken up the practice then we're going to have to reassess the political compass.

Cannibalism isn't a practice of the 'right', whatever you think that might be. Western civilization has been pretty unanimous about this for the most part. Christian symbolism through spiritual communion of wine not withstanding. No one gets eaten in any case.

In actual fact:
Racism (affirmative action college racial quotas and DEI and hiring practices),
Abortion or Infanticide (murder by 'choice' makes it good?),
Murder (excusable due to past racial injustices),
Suicide (oh you silly Canadians, suck it up),
Genocide (mindless 'from the river to the sea' chanting, no?)
and outright child mutilation (a la 'trans' whatever by drug or scalpel)

all certainly are historical fixtures in your left leaning house however. Cannibalism should fit in just fine without too much redecorating of your gloriously progressive abattoir.
