A TALE OF TWO GULLIVERS

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on January 10, 2011

As a child, a teenager, and an adult, I found much pleasure in reading Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, and over

time, the work revealed more to this reader. It is a masterpiece of satire and parody, and Swift was a most

interesting man, and a writer of wit and intelligence. His work will be appreciated for as long as there is

human civilization.

That this fine example of hollywood moviemaking was ever made is testament to where the world is at.

It will make sufficient money for those involved to consider it a success.

Yet it is unmitigated rubbish, and assumes its audience are morons; vacuous and cynical, this is Amerikan culture.

Just make sure you get a Gulliver Burger from that American fast food chain. And a Gulliver soda. And one of the

Gulliver toys. And. And.  Oh joy.

“I never wonder to see men wicked, but I often wonder to see them not ashamed.” –Swift.
