FEUDALISM: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.

PURE SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts
them in a barn with everyone else's cows. You have to take care of all
of the cows. The government gives you as much milk as you need.

BUREAUCRATIC SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them
and put them in a barn with everyone else's cows. They are cared for
by ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the
government took from the chicken farmers. The government gives you
as much milk and eggs as the regulations say you need.


FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to
take care of them and sells you the milk.


PURE COMMUNISM: You have two cows. Your neighbours help you take care
of them, and you all share the milk.


RUSSIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. You have to take care of them,
but the government takes all the milk.


CAMBODIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The government takes both of
them and shoots you.


DICTATORSHIP: You have two cows. The government takes both and drafts
you.

PURE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbours decide who gets
the milk.

REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbours pick
someone to tell you who gets the milk.


BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what
you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to
milk them. then it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours
their milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms
accounting for the missing cows.


PURE ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair
price or your neighbours try to take the cows and kill you.


LIBERTARIAN/ANARCHO-CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and
buy a bull.


SURREALISM: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to
take harmonica lessons.

How about this one.
Government philosophy

If it moves, tax it
If it still moves, regulate it
If it stops moving, subsidize it.
