‘Eating the Rich and Famous, or Celebrity Roadkill’

“Experience declares that man is the only animal which devours his own kind; for I can apply no milder term to the governments of Europe, and to the general prey of the rich on the poor.”
– Thomas Jefferson, from his letters

Words by Heathcote Williams. Montage and narration by Alan Cox.

“I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricasse or a ragout.”
– Dr. Swift
