I'm pretty sure people ate dog in this place before Europeans showed up. If you're going to say people should stay put then European descendants will need to go back. If you're going to say people's culture should stay put then Europeans desdcendants should start eating dog.
It's not that hard of a concept. At one time, women weren't allowed to vote, but that was wrong - according to our evolving societal norms - so then they made an amendment.
Back when our constitution was drawn, they decided that religious freedom would be a key component of our democracy. Other countries have theocracies, but we don't.
So, regardless of what other countries do, or what ancient American civilizations did, it doesn't matter. We can develop or adopt societal standards as we please, and then make laws that protect those standards.
Then how do you reconcile that with your previous post? If it's OK for culture and laws to change over time, why not eat dogs and cats? Just because "we" haven't done it "here" for centuries should be no reason to make it illegal.
My posts are completely consistent. I've never claimed that time - either as a permenency, or as a marker for change - has anything to do with it; you keep inferring that I have, which makes it a strawman argument.
Show me where I ever made that argument.
Maybe restate your reasoning. Why should we make it illegal to eat dogs and cats?
Let's all agree dogs shouldn't dogs, even though they have "Dog Eat Dog".
No, not an example.
For the same reason we make it illegal to steal, or murder a person, or discriminate.
Which is ... ?
I'm not telling. You'll never know.

I thought this guy's accent was annoying at first but now I've watched like 20 of his videos and he's really funny. Good stuff.
