Question and answer
Which statement describes the culture group interaction between Gulliver and the Blefuscudians best? Gulliver and the Blefuscudians constantly argue over important matters. Gulliver is cruel to the
Blefuscudians whenever he has the opportunity. The Blefuscudians regularly humiliate Gulliver. The Blefuscudians repeatedly treat Gulliver with respect.
Gulliver's Travels implicitly poses the question of whether physical power or moral righteousness should be the governing factor in social life. [ [ Gulliver experiences the advantages of physical might both as one who has it, as a giant in Lilliput where he can defeat the Blefuscudian navy by virtue of his immense size, and as one who does not have it, as a miniature visitor to Brobdingnag
where he is harassed by the hugeness of everything from insects to household pets. His first encounter with another society is one of entrapment, when he is physically tied down by the Lilliputians; later, in Brobdingnag, he is enslaved by a farmer. He also observes physical force used against others, as with the Houyhnhnms? chaining up of the Yahoos. But alongside the use of physical force, there are also many claims to power based on moral correctness. The whole point of the egg controversy that has set Lilliput against Blefuscu is not merely a cultural difference but, instead, a religious and moral issue related to the proper interpretation of a passage in their holy book. This difference of opinion seems to justify, in their eyes at least, the warfare it has sparked. Similarly, the use of physical force against the Yahoos is justified for the Houyhnhnms by their sense of moral superiority: they are cleaner, better behaved, and more rational ] ]
