Putin & All The Fine Young Cannibals!
#16
Quote:However, from a religious standpoint, ritualistic cannibalism was practiced in primative societies becsuse of the symbolic transference of intelligence from the enemy's brain, or strength from muscles, etc. That is why the defeated and slain enemy has a portion of his brain consumed to become smarter.

Vague recollections (I did not take a course either bad read on this): liver was also important, and it was not just from the enemies, but also from the elders; with the elders the rationale was the preservation of wisdom. RC's rituals are probably coming from this.
Government is necessary because people left unchecked will do evil.

The government is composed of people left unchecked
