Politics explained

Father and son were having a conversation.

Son (S): Dad, I have a special report I have to do for school. Can I ask you a question?

Dad (D): Sure son. What’s that question?

S: What is politics?

D: Well, let’s take our home for example. I’m the wage earner so let’s call me ‘capitalism’. Your mom is the administrator of the money, so let’s call her ‘government’. We take care of you and your older sister and both your needs, so let’s call them ‘people’. The maid represents the ‘working class’. Your baby brother, let’s call him “the future”. Do you understand now son?

S: I’m not really sure dad. Let me think about it.

That night, awakened by the crying of his baby brother, the boy went to see what was wrong. When he entered the room, he could smell that his baby brother had completely soiled his diaper. So he went quietly to his parents room but found his mom sound asleep. He then went to the maid’s room. Peeking through the keyhole, he saw his father having sex with the maid. He knocked on the door and knocked on the door. But his father and the maid didn’t mind the knocking. So he returned to his room and went back to sleep.

The next morning, he saw his father at the breakfast table.

S: Dad! Now I think I understand what politics is!!!

D: Good job son! So now, can you explain it to me in your own words?

S: Well dad, while capitalism is screwing the working class, government is sound asleep, the people are being completely ignored, and the future is full of shit!
