With prominent Democrats like Bernie Sanders already endorsing abortion as a way to control the population and thus reduce the effects of climate change, it should come as little surprise to see that some are entertaining even more taboo and extreme ideas about how we can combat global warming. Take Swedish behavioral scientist Magnus Söderlund, for instance. He said this week that if human beings could just get over their irrational objections to eating other human beings, we could whip this climate change thing real quick-like.
During a television broadcast about a Stockholm fair whose theme was “food of the future,” the scientist said that we should give serious thought to eating each other after we die. This could immediately bring down our greenhouse emissions and cut our carbon footprints. The only thing getting in the way is our collective distaste for the idea of cannibalism. You know – just that little thing. Easily overcome by years of propaganda, no doubt!
Breitbart notes that this ludicrous idea is gaining acceptance in left-wing circles:
Söderlund is not alone in his call to reject the taboo of cannibalism. Last year, noted atheist and evolutionary scientist Richard Dawkins advocated for lab-grown meat and suggested it may be used to “overcome our taboo against cannibalism”.
Psychologists Jared Piazza and Neil McLatchie of Lancaster University also questioned the taboo on cannibalism in an article for Newsweek last month but ultimately did not endorse breaking it.
Cannibalism is not the only “alternative meat” advocated by climate change activists. Many have embraced plant-based meat imitations, while others have put their support behind “meat” made of insects as a way to cut down on greenhouse emissions and save on land and water use.
Well, we’d suggest that climate hystericals will have a lot more success convincing people to eat bugs and plants than they will getting them to eat deceased Uncle Greg.
But this is the kind of lunacy that you get when you venture too far down the path of leftist ideology. You get people who would rather save unborn birds than unborn humans. You get people who would rather see Sharia law implemented in the United States than to admit that certain religions might be worth monitoring. You get people who would rather eat dead human beings than to admit that maybe – just maybe – this whole climate change situation has been blown out of proportion.
We don’t expect to hear any of the 2020 Democrats endorse cannibalism…but then again, this party is moving pretty quickly into the Land of Insanity. We’re not ruling anything out completely.
