Does anybody remember the film with Charlton Heston and Ernest Borgnine? In the year 2022 some 40 million people live in New York City, and there is a shortage of water, food and housing. Only the city's elite can afford clean water and natural food - sound familiar? In today's world we are told only the elites can have power and fly in private jets, super yachts etc.... everybody else has to buckle down to save the planet (as if it needs saving).
The thing about Soylent Green is the cannibalism. Soylent Industries, which derives its name from a combination of "soy" and "lentil", controls the food supply of half of the world and sells the artificially produced wafers, including "Soylent Red" and "Soylent Yellow". Their latest product is the far more flavourful and nutritious "Soylent Green". It is composed of 'human remains'. And, of course, it was in short supply.
Back in the real world, or perhaps that should be the surreal world, we have this latest 'idea' on fighting climate change...
Swedish Scientist Proposes Cannibalism to Fight Climate Change
6 Sep 2019
Swedish behavioural scientist Magnus Söderlund has suggested that eating other people after they die could be a means of combatting climate change.
The scientist mentioned the possibility of cannibalism during a broadcast on Swedish television channel TV4 this week about a fair in Stockholm regarding “food of the future”.
Söderlund is set to hold seminars at the event, entitled “Gastro Summit — about the future of food” where he intends to discuss the possibility of eating people in the name of cutting down greenhouse emissions.
According to his research, the main problem with the idea is the widespread taboo of eating human flesh and said that conservative attitudes could make it hard to convince Swedes at large to take up the practice of cannibalism.
I think on some level we all suspected it was only a matter of time before a climate fanatic seriously suggested such perversion.
I can understand someone in extreme circumstances making an impossible choice, like the survivors of Flight 571 which crashed on an ice field in the Andes. But to suggest that cannibalism is something the world should seriously consider, as just another conservation measure; how has the world come to this?
The idea of casual everyday cannibalism is pretty indicative of how deep and intense their self-loathing and misanthropy have become.
So far they've come up with eating...
Lab grown meat
I'm having traditional roast beef and all the trimmings tomorrow. I pity all the idiots who believe in this new Spartan religion - a religion where the high priests (politicians, academics, celebs, 2nd rate royals etc) get a free pass because they know best and they're spreading the gospel....
