If true, I can live the rest of my life on the grasshoppers devouring what is left of my drought plagued yard.

The only insects I would be willing to try are the ones that eat plant material.

Sure, let's wear tree bark shoes and toss our waste in the streets. If only we could be like the savages then maybe whites might be salvageable. I'm going to worship the moon starting tomorrow. Human sacrifice, anyone?

“Insect diet may be the solution for a hungry world”
I’m confused. I thought socialists believe that Soylent Green is the ideal solution for a hungry world.
