I thought this makes good reading.....

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 socialism worked & that no one would be poor & no one would be rich - a great equalizer. The professor then said, "Ok, we will have an experiment in this class on this plan: All grades will be averaged & everyone will receive the same grade!"
After the first test, the grades were averaged & everyone got a 'B'. The students who studied hard were upset & the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little, had studied even less & 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 & name-calling, all resulted in hard feelings & no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED & the Professor told them that communism would also ultimately fail, because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when the government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.


These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read & all are applicable to this experiment:
1). You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealthy, out of prosperity.
2). What one person receives without working for, another person must work for, without receiving.
3). The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4). You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5). When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them & when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation!

Think about it....
Cheers.
