Bernard Shaw's Modest Proposal

…I will go so far as to confess that there is a great deal to be said for hanging all public men at the age of fifty-two, though under such a regulation I should myself have perished eight years ago.  Were it in force throughout Europe, the condition of the world at present would be much more prosperous.
  - Bernard Shaw, letter to “The Manchester Guardian”, July 12, 1916
