what's for dinner?

What do you think would be the most inapropriate and worse thing men could ever do?  destroy the ozone layer and kill polar bears? let's focus a little bit. What is the worse thing men could do to their own race? ANTHROPOPHAGY most commonly called CANNIBALISM is i think the perfect answer to this question.

Years before our parents and grandparents, our ancestors were practicing cannibalism at a period of time or another. Fiji islands were know as the island of cannibalism, some countries in Africa like Congo and liberia practiced it too. Even in Europe countries like Greece practiced it in 5th century BC where the first true democracy in the history of the world forced Greek men, women and children to consume human flesh because of a lack of food. The most recent event related to it was the crash of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 in 1972 where survivors to the crash had no other choice than eating the dead bodies in order to survive the 72 days of starvation.
One chile miner survivor interviewed by The Washington Post said they were making jokes about it after they've been rescued. what probably make you think that they had though about it before they have been rescued. let's think about it a minute. they were starving to death and getting skinnier, what they had was just two spoonfull of tuna and a half glass of milk every 48 hours. Thinking about it made me looking for the different opinions people would have about it and this is how i found out about the "Pro-cannibalism culture". Do you think the same though would have crossed your mind if you were facing the same situation? Do you think we should judge these people for having though about eating their companions? I personaly think it is a tough question.
