A little boy goes to his father and asks, "What is politics?"
Dad says, "Well, Son, let me try to explain it this way. "I'm the
breadwinner of the family, so let's call me Capitalism. Your Mom, she's the
administrator of the money, 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 -we'll
consider her the Working Class; and your baby brother, we'll call him the
Future. Now, think about that, and see if that makes sense." So the little
boy goes off to bed thinking about what 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 in 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 now." 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".
