Politics explained with two cow analogy

Maybe you got this by email sometime as I got it, but anyway, while cleaning the spam now I found this interesting piece. Interesting enough to share with others, so here it is:

explained with two cow analogy:

FEUDALISM: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.

PURE SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. You have to take care of all of the cows. The government gives you as much milk as you need.

BUREAUCRATIC SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and put them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. They are cared for by ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the government took from the chicken farmers. The government gives you as much milk and eggs as the regulations say you need.

FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to take care of them and sells you the milk.

PURE COMMUNISM: You have two cows. Your neighbors help you take care of them, and you all share the milk.

RUSSIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. You have to take care of them, but the government takes all the milk.

CAMBODIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The government takes both of them and shoots you.

DICTATORSHIP: You have two cows. The government takes both and drafts you.

PURE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors decide who gets the milk.

REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors pick someone to tell you who gets the milk.

Donate to Gaza:

Love Palestine Tanktop
Love Palestine - buy from Sabbah Store
(Collected Commission Donated to Palestinian Children Charities)

BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. Then it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows.

PURE ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair price or your neighbors try to take the cows and kill you.

Imperialism_by_LatuffLIBERTARIAN/ANARCHO-CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

SURREALISM: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons. (Original source unknown)

Ok, but this legend is missing something called , so here is my addition:

ZIONISM: You have two cows. Israel steals them and shoots you. Your son comes and returns back one cow; Israel shoots him and steals the cow. Your son’s son comes and returns back one cow, Israel shoots your son’s son and steals the cow. Your son’s son’s son comes and takes back one cow; Israel shoots him and steals the cow. Your son’s son’s son’s son comes and returns a cow; Israel shoots your son’s son’s son’s son and steals the cow. And the story goes on…

So, who likes to share more definitions? Say, Neoconism, Bushism, UNism, etc… Come’n share yours ;-)
