What is politics?

A little boy goes to his dad, a republican, and asks, “What is

Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it 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 her the
Working Class. And your baby brother, we’ll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense.”

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about
what dad had 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

finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake 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. He gives up and goes back to

The next morning, the little boy says to his father,
 “Dad, I think I now understand what politics is.”
The father says, “Good, son, tell me in your own
words what you think politics is all 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 shit.”
