Socialism in action

A professor said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

 

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

 

After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied little.

 

The second test average was a D. No one was happy.

 

When the third test rolled around, the average was an F.

 

The scores never increased as bickering, blame, and name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else.

 

To their great surprise, all failed. The professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder it is to succeed the greater the reward, but when a government takes all the reward away, no one will try so no one will succeed. :wink::wink::wink:

According to conspiracy theory, the USA, Canada and Mexico will soon be combined in an economic community A La EEC and eventually into a full formed single nation A La EUSSR, with a common currency. So Mexico taking Texas back would be akin to the UK taking back Calais :roll::roll::roll:

Think your talking about State Capitalism - where an elite run things at the expense of the rest; it's however more honest than our elites running things, as they don't bother with the charade of elections! The only place you may find "communism" will be with some undiscovered Indian tribe deep in the Amazon jungle! :wink:

Strangely you might find that the Scots, Irish, French, Russian, Greek etc etc might be slightly miffed to find themselves described as "Anglo-Saxon" :roll::roll::roll:

And the Spanish would probably, if you were to ask them, would describe themselves as white rather than black. Trying to seperate people on such flimsy grounds is not very clever. :wink::wink:

That won't wash either. I'm afraid you will have to accept that the world is shrinking faster than your prejudices :wink::wink:
