Face it folks.

The poor have always been with us, as Jesus said.

Now that things are getting a bit tight and the poor a bit stroppy, surely it's about time that we rich folks put two and two together?

There's protein in those poor people and what's more, we won't have to pay their dreadful 'benefit'!:rolleyes:

It's a win win!

Even if you you don't fancy them yourselves, your cat (or dogs) could have them! ...or mine

Think of the savings!

Taxes DOWN.

food bills DOWN

Road traffic DOWN ...a bit

Pet food bills DOWN...a wee bit

Rioting in Engerland ( Erm but not Wales or Scotland which are uneffected) down a bit.

The poor ought to be turned into pies.

I think most of them wouldn't even notice and we'd all be much happier.

:)

It would be for the safety of everyone.

(except those actually eaten, of course)

In all fairness Swift (http://art-bin.com/art/omodest.html) did not suggest that all the poor be eaten, only poor children. That is what made his proposal modest.

The rich do not need to eat the poor or else they would not be rich.
I would never eat the poor. Poverty is associated with disease and I would rather not polute my body with poor people's medical problems. They can eat each other though to create a richer society.

If you're poor, good looking and female maybe we can come to an arrangment on the protein exchange and value proposition though :E

One finds this all to be in rather poor taste. Some garnish, perhaps, would help - a bit of spice perchance?

Just because one is dining on the cheap does not mean the results cannot be made quite pleasant by appropriate choices of condiments and a sweet/spicy dish or two on the side.

Don't people taste like chicken? if so should be on the approved list as long as they are dispatched correctly. Though after the live export debarcle they would need to be stunned first and kept in good conditions. I also would think they would need to be free range.

First Sailor Eat you, sir?
Fifth Sailor Yes. Eat me.

Fifth Sailor You don't have to eat the leg, Thompson, there's still plenty of good meat ... look at that arm.

Surely it's more environmentally / carbon footprint friendly to eat the fattest ones first? Think of the resources they have already tied up in there.

Mind you, I'd obviously ask them to have a bath first.

I've not read 'Soylent Green', just seen the film. I thought everyone got the chop at a certain age though in that movie?

I just think some of the low life have a value attached to their lives by society, that greatly exceeds their actual value to society.

Something along these lines could solve the overcrowded prison problem as well as the famine in Africa. I seem to remember that the Balubas in the old Congo liked a nice bit of long pig roasted over a slow fire.

What Heinlein? Farnhams Freehold

The basic situation is this: A suburban Colorado family, with their house guest and their black servant, take refuge in a bomb shelter when a nuclear war begins. There is a massive impact and they come out in a pastoral land with a near-tropical climate, despite having the same terrain features as present-day Colorado, which thoroughly confuses Heinlein's characters.
Halfway through the book, they are discovered by the land's inhabitants, a technologically advanced black society that maintains the area as a wilderness preserve. This society holds whites as slaves; indeed, it actually views them as a different species, less than fully human, and uses them as meat animals though it also uses them as sexual partners. Its rulers are not even sadistic brutes; they are calmly certain that they are giving the best possible care for their human domesticated animals. The scenario is one to awaken the worst fears of a paranoiac white racist. To add to the anxiety, the black rulers are Muslims, in a novel written when the Black Muslims were a newly visible movement in American society.


There's also a touch of it in Stranger in a Strange land

Stranger in a Strange Land, have both revisions. Always wondered why some nutters in California started a church based on the Martian language/philosophy. I would have thought the Fosterites a more practical basis for a church (and a hell of a lot more fun). Grok ?

But if we are going to cite cannibalism forming part of religious services, I do believe the Catholic church does this in symbolic form.

On a serious side note:

Properly speaking cannibalism is the eating of another member of the same species who does not or cannot consent. The voluntariness of the of the act is what distinguishes it from altruism. The Christian rite is symbolic of a charity to which both parties must consent to be valid.

Not quite true. One of the major differences between the Roman Catholic church and other Christian churches is the doctrine of transubstantiation. Put simply, a Catholic believes (or should believe) that the bread and wine transform into the actual flesh and blood of Christ, whereas the other churches say that the Eucharist is a symbolic representation of Christ's body.

Personally it was always beyond me, and I haven't been to communion since 1964 anyway, but I believe the doctine still holds.

Martin Luther did believe in transubstantiation. His disagreement with the RCC was over what the union in the sacrament represented. It's difficult to talk about such issue without specific definitions of what words such as "symbol," "sign," and "representation" mean. Let's not derail a perfectly good thread with theology. :}

Took a peek inside a smokehouse in a village in the DRC. Couple of human limbs in there leads one to believe it's still pretty common in those parts, notwithstanding the UN observers who got eaten near Bunia around 2001 or so.

Figured my lardy mzungu tail would have made a good main course so got the flock out of there at high speed.:ooh:
