    So true..I lived in Russia for two years shortly after the fall of Communism. People told me horror stories of public executions of political enemies, and even encyclopedia inspectors who made sure you had replaced pages sent to you by the government. Even the city officials told me of a mass grave they uncovered while digging a foundation. The grave was from the Stalin era and had over 280 bodies in it. The people hated communism so much they virtually banned the color red, the official communist color, from their clothes, homes and decorations.

    You have it backwards. And this is overblown. I get the point. However, the fact is that such cannibalism as neighbors trading children to eat was known in China long before Mao Zedong and the communists. It happened in times of famine. Adam Smith was not the first to point out that the very livability of China reduced the people to marginal existence. David Ricardo made a religion out of that fact.

    Ritualistic cannibalism is known from ancient European history, also. Apart from our own history, many people around the world practiced it. It is found even in marginal behaviors of some simians killing and eating others - chimpanzees kill and eat monkeys. Hard to say when we stopped preying on our cousins...

    The Greeks made it a horror (rightfully so), but it maintained an unmistakeable theme in their mythology: Chronos and Saturn; Jason and Medea; Iphigenia; and even Herodotus's history concerning the Persians and their politics.

    As for it being backwards, it is not that socialism causes cannibalism, but that capitalism eliminated it.

    It is the same with poverty, hatred, and other negatives. They are not the causative consequences of actions, but the non-existence of purposeful creations. Racism, sexism, and cannibalism, as with armed robbery and white collar crimes, are all alike the result of not thinking, of blanking out, and suppressing.

    The positive assertion of rational intention brings prosperity, abundance, and happiness that would have been unimaginable, except as a miracle called "heaven", before the modern era.

    Again, I get the point. Rand made it in her anthology, The Anti-Industrial Revolution which as been issued more recently as The Return of the Primitive.

    Pays to look before you leap when you come here ready to post something like~

    I was going to title it different too, which may not be a good idea.
    When titled differently, the software may not catch it and give you a duplication warning.
    You are still given the option of posting but I consider deliberately doing so to be rude.
    Anyhoo, I've been a The Walking Dead fan from the get-go and several consecutive episodes were devoted to cannibals who hung up "Welcome To Settle Here" kinda signs but welcomed wandering survivors like cattle in a well-run butcher shop instead.
