In "Gulliver's Travels", the government leaders in Lilliput were chosen for their ability on the tight-rope.

The book is worth reading again, as an adult. Jonathan Swift wrote the book as a satirical commentry of the political system of his day. Had he not described it as a fairy story for children, its content would have consigned him to the gallows.

Yes; it has to be admitted that things are better now (bad as they are) and we are somewhat more civilized than centuries ago.
It must have been deeply frustrating as well as dangerous for enlightened men like Jonathan Swift.
