25. Oh, but humans would never ever kill each other, would we?




Most (not all) humans (in most societies currently existing, not universal historically) have a taboo against cannibalism (but we'll do it if we have to).

But it's OK for us to kill each other as long as we make sure that the meat goes to waste. And since we kill each other all the time, obviously we don't REALLY grieve for the deaths of our specific loved ones.

End quote...

I'm having trouble understanding this post.

I've even turned the tv off so that I could concentrate...

It didn't help. could I get a little help here?
