MATH

The Horse Society - Just like Swift’s Houyhnhnms the horse army society is based upon reason, and only upon reason, and therefore the horses practice eugenics based on their analyses of benefit and cost. They have no religion and their sole morality is the defence of reason, and so they are not particularly moved by pity or a belief in the intrinsic value of life. The Houyhnhnms embody both the good and the bad side of reason. They live in a large cave. (http://youtu.be/J7fTGpMoyrI) (http://horsesenseandcents.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/mean-horse.jpg)
