Do you know, I think that Dr. Swift was silly to laugh about Laputa.
I believe it is a mistake to make a mock of people, just because they
think. There are ninety thousand people in this world who do not
think, for every one who does, and these people hate the thinkers
like poison. Even if some thinkers are fanciful, it is wrong to make
fun of them for it. Better to think about cucumbers even, than not
to think at all.
