Trying to Normalize Depravity

Ed.'s note: if cannibalism is so disgusting and considered the ultimate in depravity by civilized ethical people, why is this article being run on news sites as big as Newsweek and Breitbart News? Why run this story on major news media sources now? As if people really spend a lot of time thinking about cannibalism. So the idea is there is no difference between the animal kingdom and our species that can make ethical and moral decisions to preserve civilization? Here is a plausible reason as to why this story on cannibalism is being run:
"Here is why this was dabbled in, obviously: Because someone is afraid the pedovore scandal is going to break, someone is afraid of the bloody beds on pedo island, [Jeffrey Epstein] (which mysteriously simply did not surface anywhere else but here despite the fact it was posted on Youtube for all to see via the drone videos) - it is baffling that did not make it onto Infowars and others . . . . .

Someone is trying to normalize depravity to soften the blow before the wrong people get busted for it, and it is as simple as that. There's no conceivable reason to try to normalize cannibalism but that's where we are at with the Newsweek report, and it all started with normalizing homosexuality. Once you go down such a road, those who invented that road will invent totally new roads until they all intersect on a dead civilization."

Newsweek: Time to Rethink Taboo on Cannibalism?

By THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D. | 22 Aug 2019

Since cannibalism is found throughout the animal kingdom and therefore is something natural, perhaps it is time for humans to rethink the "ultimate taboo" against eating human flesh, Newsweek proposes in an article Wednesday.

There is nothing necessarily unethical or unreasonable about eating human flesh, declare psychologists Jared Piazza and Neil McLatchie of Lancaster University, but careful reasoning over the merits of cannibalism is often "overridden by our feelings of repulsion and disgust."

While not going so far as to recommend cannibalism, saying "there is no need to overcome our repulsion for the foreseeable future," the two authors suggest that humans could master their aversion for human flesh if they needed to.

"Many people develop disgust for all kinds of meat, while morticians and surgeons quickly adapt to the initially difficult experience of handling dead bodies," they note. "Our ongoing research with butchers in England suggests that they easily adapt to working with animal parts that the average consumer finds quite disgusting."

Moreover, the psychological revulsion experienced over the prospect of consuming human flesh is not the product of reason and may even contradict reason, they argue in Wednesday's article, which originally appeared last week in The Conversation.

"Survivors of the famous 1972 Andes plane crash waited until near starvation before succumbing to reason and eating those who had already died," they propose.

All sorts of animals eat members of their own species, from spadefoot tadpoles and Australian redback spiders to gulls and pelicans, they state.

And cannibalism can even be found among mammals, they add, such as with many rodents as well as bears, lions, and chimpanzees.

Yet humans seem entrenched in their conviction that anthropophagy is simply wrong, no matter how many conditions are placed on hypothetical scenarios.
