Proof of why capitalism is more fun than socialism
also, i think this brilliant post from last page fits nicely with the video
An economics teacher at a local school made a statement that he
had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an
entire class. That class had insisted that Gillard/Brown socialism
worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a
The teacher then said, "OK, we will have an experiment
in this class on the Gillard/Brown plan". All grades will be
everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one
receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer
home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the
grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied
were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the
test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even
and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so
The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering,
blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one
study for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL
FAILED and the teacher told them that socialism would also

when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and
all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor
into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
What one person receives without working for, another person must
3. The government cannot give to anybody
anything that the government does not first take from somebody
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work
other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half
idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to
what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any
Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.

the above was jwmwows post, wheres gnartron by the way?
Not saying i'm a socialist but ofc it wouldn't work if there were people who didn't get the ideology and started freeloading off the rich. For it to work everyone must get it and make a collective effort. So yea, its very difficult to get it working successfully and peacefully.
