Martin Luther King Jr: "As Abhorrent As Eating Another's Flesh"

Man was born into barbarism
when killing his fellow man
was a normal condition of existence.
He became endowed with a conscience.
And he has now reached the day
when violence toward another human being
must become as abhorrent as eating another's flesh.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Why We Can't Wait, 1963
