molloy1916: Today in 1745, Jonathan Swift died. In his satire, 'A Modest Proposal', he suggests a solution to famine: poor Irish families could sell their newborn babies to rich families to eat! “Delicious” whether “stewed, roasted, baked or boiled.” The fat rich still didn't get the point

Godward16: Like I bet Jonathan Swift would *hate it* that 99% of living intellectuals literally ONLY know him for his farcical joke about eating babies that he probably gave little thought to. They couldn’t name one other title by the guy. He’s nothing but a meme. But he was like…

Poem of the day

Robert Service Poem
Gods In The Gutter
 by Robert Service

I dreamed I saw three demi-gods who in a cafe sat,
And one was small and crapulous, and one was large and fat;
And one was eaten up with vice and verminous at that.
