A Modest Proposal

Satire at its finest!

The Problem:

Swift provides an ironic solution for a very big problem! There are many babies of the poor people of Ireland that are a drain on the nation. After about the age of one year, they cost money and contribute nothing. Something must be done to turn these babies into a benefit to the economy, rather than a burden.

The solution...

Let's eat the babies!

Let's do this!

No other solutions for this problem have ever been implemented. This solution is inexpensive and humane, really. Most Irish would agree that they'd rather be eaten at a year old than endure the hardship of living under the oppression of their English landlords. Irish babies: it's what's for dinner!
