An essay on canibalism

'Brilliant', 'Quite Good', 'What?', these are just some of the comments made recently in the press regarding canibalism. I really, really like canibalism. Until recently considered taboo amongst polite society, it is yet to receive proper recognition for laying the foundations of democracy. It still has the power to shock socialists, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of canibalism. In the light of this I will break down the issues in order to give each of them the thought that they fully deserve

Social Factors

Society is a simple word with a very complex definition. Upon Peter Pinkleton-PishPosh's return to Britain he remarked 'class will refelect the inner hero' [1], he borrowed much from canibalism. More a melody to societies dysfunctions than a parody of the self, canibalism is quite good.

Of paramount importance to any study of canibalism within its context, is understanding the ideals of society. If society has a favourite child, it is canibalism.

Political Factors

Politics has in some areas been seen to embrace an increasing ananiathesis of intergovernmentalism leading to neo-functionalism. Comparing international relations since the end of the century can be like observing canibalism now, and its equivalent in the 1800s.

It is always enlightening to consider the words of the star of stage and screen Demetrius Shandy 'People in glass houses shouldn't through parties.' [2] One cannot help but agree when faced with canibalism, that this highlights an important issue. I feel strongly that if politicians spent less time thinking about canibalism and put more effort into their family life, that we would have a very different country.

I hope, for our sake that canibalism will endure.


To conclude, canibalism may not be the best thing since sliced bread, but it's still important. It enlightens our daily lives, it stimulates and statistically it's great.

As a parting shot here are the words of super-star Beyonce Schwarzenegger: 'Oooh yeah canibalism shoo badaby dooo.' [3]

Não postei aqui os factores económicos do canibalismo (por causa de ter uma figura) mas toda a gente sabe que que o aumento do canibalismo traduz-se num crescimento do preço dos transportes.

Quem nos poderia dar umas ideias é o Aníbal das Leituras (formato do nome veio do Cosmonauta).
