    @Baslim – odd that you should define Tarzan as a terrorist. In his world, he has no frame of reference for terror. This is his first encounter with other humans. Except for what he has gleaned from books, he considers himself a (hairless) ape. But speaking of terrorists, it depends on who is writing the history books. The US has supported governments and rebels alike, either of which have used the same tactics. For that matter, when our country was born, we weren’t following the rules of engagement either.

    Re the JC movie, the trailer says it’s a Disney production. This does not bode well…

    Balslim, you raise an interesting point about stereotypes and storytelling. Correct me if I am mistaken, but during the time ERB wrote Tarzan, Africa had not been explored very much. One popular myth was that most of the natives were cannibalistic savages. From your comment, it would seem that Tarzan’s discovery of cannibals is consistent with that myth.

    The same kind of speculation happen about 400 years earlier with the discovery of the New World (Americas). One myth was that the land was a utopia of “milk and honey” inhabited by friendly natives, while the other less-popular myth depicted them as cannibalistic savages.

    Funny—at age 8 when reading the Big Little Book in 1932("Tarzan Of the Apes)—Freudian issues did not enter my mind—I was just lost in the jungle with the young Greystoke.

    Looks like a few of us have wandered into the milder jungles of Moo(“Alley OOP”)—you might find it more pleasurable and safer there.

    Disney has to keep it “kid friendly” or they won’t make big buck$.

    It’s the old, tried and true “KISS” strategy, and I am not referring to the rock band with Gene Simmons either!

    Cannibalism has an interesting history. Most of it was ceremonial but some if it was to stay alive. Theses days waiting too long to eat a dead comrade won’t help you. But who of us would? Most of us think it terrible and beastly since we have plenty of examples of it in nature.


    Truth be told only a few peoples would eat their dead or their enemies as part of some normal ritual or necessity. Usually it happens as a last resort. When things got so bad that food was scarce. Many a civilization has fallen that way. Hope it never happens here.


    Remember one person’s freedom fighter is another’s terrorist.


    As for PC these days it means that you can be racist and being PC means you are forbidding it. So goes the Reich wing rational.
