OH MY GOD
Here a little story about communism :
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that communism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on communism”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that communism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
now in an actual country, it gets worse. i remember when i asked my dad what the hardest part of living in the ussr was. basically no one in the store has to sell the things to get money. they get payed a separate paycheck from the government. because of the barriers on trade there was often a shortage of stuff. the shopkeepers could easily just decide not to sell stuff and keep it/ only let their best friends buy it because it didn’t matter how much they sold. that basically meant that if you didn’t have ‘connections’ you did not have any good things. true communism if practiced the way marx intended leads to lazy people because they don’t get an immediate reward and actual practiced communism can backfire and lead to an elite bureaucracy.
tbh I don’t see the fuss about having waiters/waitresses not being happy and enthusiastic like I came here to eat I didn’t come here to be amused by employees as long as I’m getting my food and they’re not being blatantly rude I don’t see why y’all need to go on yelp to rank a restaurant 0/5 and have an outburst on why your waitress didn’t smile at you when she poured you water
this is pretty fucking important
Every part of the fandom will understand how comforting this short tune is.
go to google translate. type a sentence in english and translate it to a language of your choice. translate it again to another language. translate it again. and again. and again. translate it 6 more times. then once more. translate it one final time back to english. what are you left with? something that’s completely different than the original.
or as we like to call it
This is great
