Swedish Researcher Pushes Eating Human Flesh as Answer to Future Climate Change Food Shortages
At a summit for food of the future (the climate-ravaged future) called Gastro Summit, in Stockholm Sept 3-4, a professor held a powerpoint presentation asserting that we must “awaken the idea” of eating human flesh in the future, as a way of combatting the effects of climate change.


In a talk titled “Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” behavioral scientist and marketing strategist Magnus Söderlund from “Handelshögskolan” (College of Commerce) argues for the breaking down of the ancient taboos against desecrating the human corpse and eating human flesh.


He refers to the taboos against it as “conservative,” and discusses people’s resistance to it as a problem that could be overcome, little by little, beginning with persuading people to just taste it.
This the Left at its finest.
According to the Epoch Times, 8% of attendees to the Gastro Summit admitted they are open to eating human flesh.

A behavioral scientist and marketing strategist Magnus Söderlund from “Handelshögskolan” (College of Commerce)? So he studies behavior & marketing? @ a community college? Is he even entitled to the status of professor? Nah, this won't do. If the point is to scare us about the possibility of running Soylent green in real life, this ain't doing it.

If he were truly trying to address future food shortages, eating people is short sighted. The point is to eat more efficient food animals, typically sheep (meat, milk, wool), or chickens, if you're pressed for time.

Reducing the amount of meat we eat and increasing our vegetable intake is the easiest way to address food shortages.

Yes, that too, of course. It's interesting that the US burger joints are taking an interest (again?) in trying out textured & flavored veggie substitutes for beef in their burgers. Maybe this time it'll take? US Big Agro is also taking an interest, & teaming up with startups to churn out more product in less time. It may be a good trend, we'll have to see how things shake out.

If the trend catches on & spreads to other countries hoping to attain 1st World food consumption patterns, this shift away from meat & to textured vegetable may be a game changer - & will likely save a lot of lives from blood pressure & cardiac issues.

I posted this to illustrate the obsession with climate change. It shows how close people think we are to absolute disaster that we contemplate cannibalism. If climate change destroys the world it will do it gradually and problems will be dealt with when they arise. If the coast is flooded, you move. If you are hungry you eat your neighbor.

Lots of people in the US won't eat perfectly good organ meat, nor bunny meat nor mutton nor goat. It's partially what you've grown up eating, I'm sure - but we're (the majority of the US) too many generations off the farm or ranch, when everything of a food animal was eaten or used in some way. Like Jonathan Swift in his A modest proposal, I assume that the marketing guy in the OP is merely being provocative. (& how do we know he's a liberal?) Long pig has a long history among humans, but it's not something we're proud of. When push comes to shove, yes; people eat whatever's to hand - or they die a tough hard death. Some people would rather die, I suppose.

In Western Civilization, I think it takes the immediate prospect of starving to death (or even actually starting to starve to death) to deprogram people from their normal food habits. Just as well. People may say they'll contemplate cannibalism, but it's hard to judge what people will do in extremis.
