Yahoo society function (i.e. leadership, mating, war)? What is Swift trying to say about human nature?
In the society of the yahoos, it is cruel and selfish. To be able to pick a leader in the yahoos, the male will use their strength to beat all the other males up. The strongest will become the leader, there are nothing to deal with knowledge or any experience. Also the female will just stay around with the strongest male. The yahoo does not think what does the subject belongs to, they just still if they like it or want to have it. I felt like it is similar to human, we are all selfish. We fight to become the best, we take away stuff if we want it. The yahoos are no differences than human, actually they are the original type of human.
