Cannibalism is on the rise having never been fully eradicated in parts of the Middle East, Asia, Africa, South America and some island communities. Pretending it doesn’t exist would be a mistake, especially during a pandemic when food shortages are sure to follow.
Many cite the remote regions that continue this practice as being insignificant to the world in general. Tell that to the victim in the stew.
However, it is not only the poor and undereducated peoples who indulge; it’s the rich and influential wanting more extreme and taboo experiences who keep the markets open to the more civilized world. We who care about the non-human animal must travel those roads between seller and buyer of human flesh to put a stop to barbarism once and for all.
