Regimes generally look like this

Regimes generally look like this:

– Maoism: I have three cows; the government takes them all to kill, and the meat is divided equally.
– Communism: I have three cows; the government takes them all to the collective farm, where they die.
– National Socialism: I have three cows; government sells two of them to buy a cannon.
– Fascism: I have three cows; the government sets a maximum price for milk, and tells me not to drink milk illegally.
– Socialism: I have three cows; government collects the milk, which then can be purchased in the state store for state coupons.
– Social Democracy: I have three cows; Government buys milk from me and gives it away free in schools, where children pour it down the sink.
– The welfare state: I have three cows; I have to sell one to have money for veterinary examinations and to pay the taxes for the other two.
– Eurosocializm: I have three cows; the government tells me to kill one, because there are too many of them, and to kill the second, because some cows might be sick.
– Capitalism: I have three cows; I sell one and buy a bull!

As you know know the difference between between various strains of reds: marxists, keynesians, trotskyists, leninists, communists, anarcho-communists, socialists, fascists, syndicalists, anarcho-syndicalists, african socialists, muslim socialists, christian socialists, eurosocialists, national socialists, true socialists, honest socialists (extremely dangerous!), dishonest socialists, stalinists, sanators, the nationial communists, international communists, social democrats, social realists, maoists, revisionists, dogmatists etc.

– and I appreciate those differences – but really only good shade of red is a dead red. Each cowboy knew it!
