1. Swift asserts that whoever finds “a fair, cheap and easy method” for solving the overwhelming issue of poverty in England would deserve to have “his statue set up for a preserver of the nation.” 2. Swift explains that his proposal would bring relief to impoverished parents because they would “be rid of the charge of maintaining them after the first year.” 3. “This would be a great inducement to marriage, which all wise nations have either encouraged by rewards, or enforced by laws and penalties,” writes Swift about his proposal. Explanation: Jonathan Swift wrote his “Modest Proposal” in an attempt to ironically point out the incapability of the Irish government and also the masses in trying to find a solution for the poverty situation of Ireland. He argues that he has found a way to turn the problem into it’s own solution. He proposes that for the benefit of everyone, young children should be sold in the meat market. This will provide food for the people, a bit of income for the poor parents, and also keep the economy and the population level in check. This will ensure that parents are more caring towards their children, fathers will treat their wives better and it will ensure a steady income for the family. Also, it will provide a source of high value meat for the rich who wished to entertain special guests. This will enable the country to overcome overpopulation and unemployment.
