Arun Simha has an answer to the thought experiment on cannibalism that I'd posed in my post, "Blogger's Beef". He says that Man One should be prosecuted, and gives his reasons; I give my counter in the only comment there so far. More importantly, Arun provides links to a couple of excellent essays taking different sides in this debate. Read "The Case for Cannibalism", by Theodore Dalrymple in City Journal. Also read "Cannibalism: why not?" by Roger Kimball in Armavirumque, the blog of the New Criterion. And if you wish to join in, leave a comment on his post.
