This little boy goes to his Dad and asks, "What
Dad says, "Well, son let me try to explain it to
you this way.. I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me
'Capitalism'. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the household,
so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of YOUR
needs, so we'll call you 'The People'. The nanny, well, she works
hard all day for very little money, so we'll consider her 'The
Working Class'. And your baby brother.. we'll call him 'The
Future'. Now, think about that and see if it makes sense."
So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about
what his Dad has said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother
crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has
severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents'
room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he
goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks into
the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up
and goes back to bed.
The next morning, the little boy says to his
father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics
The father says, "Good, son, tell me in your own
words what you think politics is all about".
The little boy replies, "Well, While Capitalism
is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, The
People are being ignored, and the Future is in Deep Shit."
