Of Cannibals and Socialists

Of Cannibals and Socialists G P D EVER Mince five different newspapers and journals have started serialising Kissinger's wisdom under exclusive rights, the only addition to our knowledge has been in terms of eating habits in the socialist world. If the Soviets like boars, the Chinese are apparently cannibalistic. The source of the latter piece of wisdom is Brezhnev himself. Kissinger has claimed that Brezhnev gave him this view of the eating practices in Beijing. More recently, as we all know, Brezhnev has claimed that he and other fellow-Russians have never questioned the socialist character of China. We refer here to his speech at Tashkent on March 24. This might mean that the Soviets in their extreme magnanimity are willing to forgive any offences (including cannibalism) that the Chinese might have committed. Any takers in Beijing?
