Funny Political System Analogies

Hi all
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.

"Philosopher's corner"

SOCIALISM 
You have two cows and you give one to your neighbour

COMMUNISM 
You have two cows; the government takes both and gives you the milk

FASCISM 
You have two cows; the government takes both and sells you the milk

NAZISM
You have two cows; the government takes both and shoots you

BUREAUCRATISM 
You have two cows; the government takes both, shoots one, milks the other and throws the milk away

CAPITALISM 
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!
