Summary

Chapter 6

Gulliver next tries to explain greed to Master Horse using England as an example. Gulliver explains that England grows enough food to comfortably feed everyone, but others want to live better than their peers, so England exports crops and such for more things that they do not need. This leads him to talk about diseases and how doctors are profiting from the sickness of other humans, and how doctors can be used to get rid of someone you didn’t like. Gulliver then goes on to talk to Master Horse about how the doctors even sometimes make people think they are sick just to sell them things they don’t really need. Master Horse wants to know what a minister of state is and Gulliver explains that he is a man who is useless but is still better than others.
