Actually, I think this is a fine, progressive idea!
Doctors overcharge for their services? Kill them and eat them!
Imagine how quickly overcharging would stop, not only to patients but to government medical offices!
I think they're onto something here!
My god! How that ghost makes me dread
My attempts to sleep at night, in my bed
All that moaning and groaning
Keep me awake until morning
Oh wait --- it's that couple next door, newly wed!

''Mr Wagambie said no remains of their victims had been found. "They're probably all eaten up," he reflected.''
Well now, there is the answer as to why no bigfoot bodies are ever found. The other bigfeet eat them
Seriously though, it does sound to us to be a rather barbaric way to behave but if this is their culture, who are we to say they should step into the 21st century and behave like we do?
By the sound of things these witch doctors became too greedy even to the point of demanding sex from the 'patient's' wife or teenage daughter!
They are behaving exactly as they would do had us westerners not initerfered in their lives and culture.
Who are we to say they are wrong?

Yes folks cannibalism & head hunting is still part of some tribes in remote areas, I remember some old WW2 stories where japanese soldiers ended up as a la carte & their heads are probably still in a museum somewhere.
That is dark. But if you explained to them that, houndreds of tons of bombs could come raining down from the sky, wiping out entire familes and villages in the blink of an eye - they may find that very difficult to fathom, also.

Im not sure why they're calling it a "cult." It was only a few hundred years or less that tribes on this island were head-hunter canibals...
I know! Right? That's where there were "mysterious" cases of mad cow disease (because I can't remember the scientific name of the disease) doctors could not figure out how it was spreading until they realized people were eating the brains of their loved ones after a natural death. They did that because they believe it will make them one. Or some shi't like that. Whatever, I saw it on national geographic. Lol

What a strange situation. These people do not consider this wrong but are subject to laws of the land (I would guess) they have no knowledge of. What they have done is wrong, but is enforcing the local governments laws and punishments on them right?
Its not a position I would usually take but I believe education is more important than punishment in this situation, especially as an example to others with this way of thinking.
One more thing that I think shows education is more important than punishment here, 'lets eat the people who abused their powers so we can get the same powers ourselves'.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything.
