Swedish professor says cannibalism is a way to combat climate change

This dude takse the climate-change hysteria to new levels.

Magnus Söderlund is a behavioral scientist at Stockholm School of Economics in Stockholm, Sweden. He describes himself in his profile on ResarchGate as “Professor of Marketing and Head of Center for Consumer Marketing at Stockholm School of Economics. Magnus does research in consumer behavior-related areas, often with experimental methods, and with an interest in how consumers are affected by various marketing activities.”

On September 3, 2019, at the Gastro Summit on food of the future in Stockholm, Söderlund conducted a powerpoint presentation titled “Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?,” in which he said we must “awaken the idea” of eating human flesh in the future, as a way of combatting the effects of climate change.

Sweden’s TV Channel 4 reports, September 3, 2019, that (via Google Translate):

The “Gastro Summit – about the future of food” is being held at the Stockholm Fair. There, behavioral scientist Magnus Söderlund holds seminars that make most people raise their eyebrows. They are about the possibility of eating human flesh – to save the climate.

Swedish-American writer/reporter Celia Farber reports for The Epoch Times that Söderlund argued that since food sources will be scarce in the future, humans must break down the ancient taboos against desecrating the human corpse and eating human flesh, and be introduced to eating things they have thus far considered disgusting–among them, human flesh. He called the taboos against cannibalism “conservative” and people’s resistance to it as a problem that could be overcome, little by little, beginning with persuading people to eat worms and insects, then to tasting human flesh.

In his talk at the Gastro Summit, Söderlund asked the audience how many would be open to the idea of cannibalism. Not many hands went up; some in the audience groaned.  When interviewed after his talk, Söderlund reported brightly that 8% of conference participants said they would be open to trying human flesh. When asked if he himself would try it, he replied: “I feel somewhat hesitant but to not appear overly conservative…I’d have to say….I’d be open to at least tasting it.”

Söderlund suggested that eating pets and insects would be easier sells before cannibalism.

Farber concludes:

What Söderlund does not mention, curiously, is the long documented science—the biological effect of cannibalism.

A tribe called the Fore lived isolated in Papua New Guinea until the 1930s. They believed in eating their dead rather than allowing them to be consumed by worms. This led to an epidemic of a disease called “kuru, or “the laughing death,” caused by ingestion of human meat. This disease was not caused by a pathogen, but rather, a “twisted protein,” (according to an NPR report) that tricks “other proteins in the brain to twist like it, damaging the brain’s cerebellum. Researchers compared it to Dr. Jekyll’s transformation. The last victim of kuru died in 2009.

Whoever is in charge of Sweden’s Public Relations is doing an abysmal job. Unless the new brand is that this small Northern country, obsessed with atheism and political correctness, is now cooler than ever for re-setting all previously known boundaries of “noir.” And madness.
