The link is an article from the New York Times talking about cannibalism in current American culture. It is quite upbeat. It seems that cannibalism is quite the rage now.

I’m sorry but this is creepy.

You won’t be able to read the damned thing because it is behind a pay wall, but I will provide you some quotes from the article.

“A spate of recent stomach-churning books, TV shows and films suggests we’ve never looked so delicious — to one another.”

“Turns out, cannibalism has a time and a place. In the pages of some recent stomach-churning books, and on television and film screens, Ms. Summers and others suggest that that time is now”

“Lapvona,” by Ms. Moshfegh, is also not overtly cannibalistic; unlike “A Certain Hunger,” there’s no braising with bouquet garni. But one scene involving a toenail is harrowing.

“I feel like the unthinkable has become the thinkable,” Ms. Lyle said, “and cannibalism is very much squarely in that category of the unthinkable.”

So the NY Times is celebrating the descent of modern culture into the acceptance of cannibalism. Very nice guys, now let’s laugh at those 8 year olds making sneakers in Cambodia.

A Taste for Cannibalism?
