A Modest Proposal PDF

Written and published by Jonathan Swift in 1729, A Modest Proposal (pdf) is a satirical essay. The proposal begins by lamenting the poverty-stricken Irish, and how difficult it is for them to feed their kids.

The author proposes to solve this situation by raising the children as food for the wealthy English elite. The author goes on to explain the benefits of such a proposal. Such as population reduction. With the population of Ireland reduced, the English would have an easier time ruling over them.
