I didn't see "people eating each other" in the article, but if that would reduce our numbers to where we don't have to eat bugs or faeces, then I'm all for it. Really, if we could develop economic incentives for smaller family size, spanning all cultures, then these Soylent Green sorts of futures could be avoided. It's all very well for prosperous Danes to tell people in Africa or Asia that they would do well to eat disgusting things, but those people may have better ideas. As for brains, since they are a vector for Creutzfeld-Jacob disease, and related prion-based illnesses, I think extreme care would be needed before that really catches on.

Veganism is a much more reasonable strategy. But don't ask me how to convince people to adopt it. I can't even convince myself, judging by my actions. Leaving it up to individual choice is about as viable as prayer.
