Time and time again, we in America are inundated with the rhetoric of how "entitlements" are what is driving our National Debt.   This spending is crippling our economy, we are told.   And it is not a problem that is isolated to America, only.   Across Europe, austerity measures have been implemented in order to combat global, economic meltdowns.   Why? : Because there are simply too many people in need of assistance from their governments around the world; governments which cannot afford to take care of them"or so we are told.

In the world today, there are millions upon millions of people who are suffering in poverty. Many are unemployed, homeless, hungry and desperately looking for relief.   In "developed" nations, those in need are absorbing much of their nation's fiscal resources. Unfortunately, many of America's resources are allocated to nations who cannot afford to take care of their own but unfortunately, these funds often never make it to the people yet, we keep sending them.   The amount of money we in America give to this cause is staggering.   This cost adds to our fiscal deficit and could or rather, should be used more productively in other areas.

In America, Social Security is said to be taking up half of our National Budget and Medicare/Medicaid, food stamps, etc ; the rest.   We are told the numbers of dependents are growing too large for the resources of this Nation and other nations to support. Thanks to media's demonizing these programs, it has somehow become acceptable to state that the people dependent upon State money are no longer "productively" contributing to our society as a whole.   We are on average, decreasing our collective abilities with these extra bodies; these socio-economic drains.   Sadly enough, that not such a false statement.

Everyday, we are handed extra fees, fines and taxes just to pay for their increasing dependency and associated governmental costs attributed to their unfortunate existence.   Those who are productive in our present society are expected to care for those who continue to exist thanks to the government teat while the numbers of these dependents grows exponentially.   Yes, much of this need is caused from corporate greed and a poor business environment but it is the inevitable outcome of a world which has become overpopulated with resource allocation strained and misery, a seeping wound of the people.   Just imagine if there weren't so many in need: Imagine how much extra money the rest of us would have.  

To combat, support and forever solve the "problems" as reported by so many neo-conservatives, "right wing" politicians and their followers world wide, I propose the following steps which would be an extreme solution but nonetheless, a necessary one that I am certain would pass not only in Congressional review but in so many State legislative bodies and foreign Nations which have adopted extremist solutions all their own in order to solve the "problems" of over population and increasing social dependence.   The solution is as follows:

We should eat the poor and downtrodden.

I know what you must be thinking: What?!?! You're Insane!!! Don't be alarmed at this initial reaction; it is a perfectly normal one but alas, it is just a temporary one. You will soon enough, with the full support of politicians and their media talking heads, come to accept it as a step which is necessary toward alleviating so many "problems" across the Globe, unless of course, you are among those chosen for said eating.   After all, this nation and others believed "Weapons of Mass Destruction" was a viable reason to wage a brutal, never ending, civilian killing war so what I am proposing will soon enough be accepted as a necessary step toward maintaining our "National Security" and complete, financial stability on a global level.  

Currently, our intellectual prowess is being hampered by tightening budgets and increasing numbers of the unproductive.   Education is being de-funded, art and music diminished and university tuitions rising to the point where soon, only a select, wealthy few will be allowed in. Our society as it is now, is only training our young to be miscreant, unthinking, obese cretins with little to no ability to operate outside the realm of televised ignorance: There are too few Einsteins, Bachs and DaVincis appearing these days.   This is the fault of a society purged of intellect by the above mentioned people and those trying to proliferate their ignorance of a profit based existence without effort.   We have lost our humanistic reason because of the population increase and trying to survive the melee of increased dependence by those who do not produce for the greater good.  

So how do we go about beginning this new phase of our future societies?


First and foremost, in order to fully accept this solution as necessary and as a step toward true, financial freedom, you must rid yourselves of any religious restrictions or self-righteous hang-ups about humanity at large.   This is the stuff man never wrote in their Holy Books nor is it the best of Christian thinking, but necessity is the Mother of Invention and we are indeed, needing some invention.   Of course, there were only a few hundred thousand people on the planet back when the Bible was fabricated: We have a few billion more now so turning to the Book is not a viable solution any longer.

Throughout history, people have been sacrificed to the "Gods" for the betterment of society so this is not such a stretch of the morality we have inherited from our ancestors.   If you spend just a moment to consider it, a hungry person will do just about anything to sate their pangs. Stories of sailors adrift at sea are rife with tales of cannibalism.   Even belief in a God cannot dissuade a hungry person from doing whatever is necessary to fill their stomachs including eating their own.   This idea is based on all of these instincts; these necessities, shown throughout human history and innate within our human animal's basic survival instincts.   We are not any different now save for our faux morality based on a loosely formed Books of fables meant only to drive us into a controlled state.   This plan is merely the final collection and actualization of these base, animal needs.

Secondly, you must understand the global issues.   We have famine, disease, poverty and a growing number of people dependent upon Government to survive. Hunger, lack of housing and the need for a continued, budget sucking existence will be all but alleviated with this plan.   There will no longer be a need for socialist systems; those labeled as financial burdens upon the State. Additionally, with the lessened numbers of humans who will survive because of this plan, our wildlife, environment and even our cultural brilliance will regain their strengths as it was always meant to evolve to. Even the Liberals can't argue with that.

Thirdly, you must embrace the idea of a greater good.   War is oftentimes justified for such a cause.   Innocent people are killed everyday to control resources but their corpses litter the ground, above and below.   Instead of killing them, they can be made into a resource which we can harvest, sustain ourselves with and in the process, strengthen our human race. These people are going to die eventually without social assistance anyway, right?   Unless we control the growth of their existence, society will be overburdened with their continued propagation.   We must take drastic steps to correct it or our empire will eventually crumble under their weight.
