Swift, Jonathan: A Modest Proposal. 18 Aug 07

I am continually amazed at how many young people in the US have never read or even heard of this work.

So here is some very light reading for a Saturday afternoon.

Quote:
A Modest Proposal for preventing the children of poor people in Ireland, from being a burden on their parents or country, and for making them beneficial to the publick.

I'm surprised this is in the Humour category. Although it's an ironic piece, it's meaning is very serious. Even taken at surface level it is gory and unpleasant. This should be re-classified.
