Voltaire vs. Swift

Which celebrated 18th century satirist do you prefer?

Personally, I prefer Voltaire due to his work being in many ways more charming than Swift's and actually making me laugh.

More Voltaire worth reading IMO but Gulliver is sick

You're an embarrassment to the white race

You're fucktarded. Swift started his career at the Examiner as a Whig, but when he started running with Pope and Arbuthnot, he turned conservative.

I hope you are not white for the sake of your belief system. You're certainly not smart whatever your race.

Definitely Voltaire. Cunning, edgy, and with a wicked sense of humor
>>
Swift, would rather be without the insipid Manichean preaching of Candide
>>
>>7575112
Goldsmith and Burke, Swift and the Bishop of Cloyne
All hated Whiggery; but what is Whiggery?
A levelling, rancorous, rational sort of mind
That never looked out of the eye of a saint
Or out of drunkard's eye.
