A simple way to explain the types of government using cows.
Ann Landers published a column decades ago with a simple explanation using cows. Here we go:
Socialism: You have two cows. Give one cow to your neighbor.
Communism: You have two cows. Give both cows to the government, and they might give you some of the milk.
Fascism: You have two cows. You give all of your milk to the government, and the government sells it.
Nazism: You have two cows. The government shoots you and takes both cows.
Anarchism: You have two cows. Keep both of the cows, shoot the government agent and steal another cow.
Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
Surrealism: You have two giraffes. The government makes you take harmonica lessons..
