John Farrier's Comments

I remember my Latin American history prof in college telling me that the Aztec human sacrifice system worked.

If there's a famine, then the gods are angry. Start engaging in human sacrifice. This reduces the population and thus raises the per capita food available. Also, since cannibalism is part of the practice, there's more meat to go around.

"Forces of Nature" from Star Trek: The Next Generation was an excellent pick for this list and came immediately to my mind. It was a foolishly short-sighted episode.
