"Art is a lie that tells the truth" -- Pablo Picasso
From your headline on Google Reader, I wondered whether you referred to the country or to the Anguishing Communion. No Swift as yet, I believe, in either case.
I think Tom Tomorrow in "This Modern World" really captured things well, re the proposed Social Security age-raising. "People are living longer" says the rationale. No, they're not. THE RICH are living MUCH longer, not the poor (or lower middle-class---if they're any of THEM left). "Janitors will be forced to work TILL THEY DROP, to make possible tax cuts for lawyers" said Tom T.Maybe Tom Tomorrow is our Swift.
Indeed, hedge fund managers are living longer. The rest of us are expendable.
