Qabalist teacher Ann Davies told a story about a U.S. Army general negotiating with a cannibal chief in New Guinea during World War II.

The general wanted the chief to rally his tribe to help American troops fight the Japanese.

The chief refused, calling the Americans immoral.

The general was shocked. “We are not immoral!” he protested. “The Japanese are immoral!”

The cannibal chief replied, “The Japanese and Americans are equally immoral. You both kill far more people than you can eat.”
