Chinese cannibalism

two examples are given in The Black Book of Communism
(a)  enemies of the state were served up in state cafeterias
(touched upon in the link above under Cannibalism for Idealogical Reasons)
(b) during the famine associated with the Great Leap Forward, the swapping of children so people could use them for food without committing the additional sin of eating their own (Horror of a Hidden Chinese Famine)

Kinda old days thoughts, somewhere in between the Montesquieu's Persian Letters and the Adventures of Tintin. Fortunately times have changed and all countries now have their own "... has talent" tv show.
