really liked it

Another classic. This one I had read before, long ago, but it was good to review one of the first and best forms of classic satire. A brutal slam of early 18th century social-economic conditions, this is the forerunner to the satirists that dominate the scene today. Again, read the original and make up your own mind, but still, Swift could fit in well with the current crowd of commentators today. (Kindle Version).
