What is politics?
A little boy asked his father, "What is politics?" The father explains, "Well, son, it's 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 the working class. And your baby brother, he's the future. Now think about that and see if that makes sense." So the little boy went to bed thinking about what his father had just 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 disturb 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. The little boy 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." "Good, Son," says the father, "tell me in your own words what you think politics is 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 doo-doo."
