Here at Cannibalism for a Brighter Tomorrow, we believe economic problems can be solved for good with a little unconventional thinking.
As every child grows up hearing, there are starving people in Africa, or India or downtown. As we grow older, we start to worry for our future: people breed, a lot, and rarely smartly. People are living longer. In the United States of America alone, there are roughly two babies born for every person that dies. In India, four babies per death. It's a gruesome way to look at it. Granted, there are countries, like the United Kingdom or Japan, that have an almost perfect ration of 1:1, but overpopulation is a real threat.
What can we do about this? How do we kill the metaphorical two birds with one stone? Personally, the answer is obvious: kill a section of the population to feed the hungry.
In the long run, the numbers will balance. Then we can create ranches, and the people grown there would be bred for food only, never to enter the social-cultural mainstream except on a plate. Free-range people, the ultimate renewable food source!
Certainly, there's the worry of mad cow, or the human variant. As long as we don't eat the brains, there shouldn't be any problem. Yes, that's a lot of grey matter to go to waste, but we can feed it to other animals, ship it to zoos, use it as fishing bait. We can find uses, yes.
The future looks bright to me!
