The rich will continue to enjoy the luxuries of the upper class such as wealth, power, and fine dining, while the peasants raise their meat for them. The upper class is undoubtedly the British that rule over Ireland, and by eating their oppressed they show their power and superiority. Swift is commenting that British control in Ireland is as treacherous as people eating their own babies as means to survive.

I was called upon, and I introduced myself, and said why I was at the meeting. It was such a wonderful experience. At the end of the meeting, the facilitator asked to know who has been sober for 30 days, 60 days and 90 days. A young guy got up and said he had been sober for 90 days.
