Type of Government

I saw this funny analogy of government around the world and taught it is worth sharing.

#SOCIALISM: You have two cows, and you give one to your neighbor.

#COMMUNISM: You have two cows, the government takes both and gives you milk.

#FASCISM: You have two cows, the government takes both and sells you milk.

#NAZISM: You have two cows, the government takes them and kills you.

#CAPITALISM: You have two cows, you sell one and buy a male. You multiply your cows and there is economic growth. You sell them, you retire and you live on your profits.

#MODERN_CAPITALISM: You have two cows, you sell one and buy a male. You multiply your cows and you buy those of your neighbors. Then your neighbors become your shepherds, you pay them in monkey currencies and they die poor.

#AMERICAN_SOCIETY: You have two cows, you sell one and you have to make the other one to produce milk like Four cows. By stress of producing beyond her capacity, she dies. You hire a consultant to understand this death.

#FRENCH_SOCIETY: You have two cows, you go on strike because you want a third cow.

#GERMAN_SOCIETY: You have two cows, you modify them so that they live 100 years, eat once a month and take care of themselves.

#CHINESE_SOCIETY: You have two cows, you sell milk to your compatriots and you produce plastic milk to export to the rest of the world. You become rich.

#BLACK_AFRICAN_SOCIETY: You have two cows, you eat them all in one month, and you dream that donors or the international community give you more cows. When that doesn’t happen, you go to religious houses and hope for miracle cows. You begin to fast days and nights without eating or drinking and continue to speak in all kind of tongue, so that the cows will fall from Heaven. At last You die in extreme poverty.

Read and Reflect

Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family.
The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion’s guest room.
Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement.
As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it.
When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied,
“Things aren’t always what they seem”
The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife.
After sharing what little food they had the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night’s rest.
When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.
The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how could
you have let this happen?
The first man had everything, yet you helped him, she accused.
The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die..
“Things aren’t always what they seem,” the older angel replied.
“When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall.
Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn’t find it.”
“Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife I gave him the cow instead.
Things aren’t always what they seem.”
Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don’t turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every out come is always to your advantage. You just might not know it until some time later…
Some people come into our lives and quickly go..
Some people become friends and stay awhile…
leaving beautiful footprints on our hearts… and we are never quite the same because we have made a good friend!!
