I don't normally talk about politics much. My Dad even said "If you want to make friends, politics is not a good topic to talk about". I do however think it's good to have a basic understanding of different political ideologies, especially when studying history. So in this blog I'll share with you a simplified and humorous list of common political systems (historically and currently used) that I received in my history class earlier this year. It is copied out word for word.
You have two cows and you give one to your neighbour
You have two cows; the government takes both and gives you the milk
You have two cows; the government takes both and sells you the milk
You have two cows; the government takes both and shoots you
You have two cows; the government takes both, shoots one, milks the other and throws the milk away
You have two cows; you sell one and buy a bull
I hope this helps in giving everyone a basic understanding of these political ideologies. Thanks for reading!
