The Bovinian Theory of Economics and Politics

I came across this earlier today. Interesting theory in support of capitalism:

  • Socialism : You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbour.
  • Communism: You have two cows. The government takes them both and provides you with milk.
  • Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes them both and sells you the milk.
  • Bureaucracy: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and then pours it down the drain.
  • Corporatism: You have two cows. You sell one and force the other to produce the milk of four cows and then act surprised when it drops dead.
  • Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

You judge the preferred alternative.
