    Marx's theory is that the government would own all resources, and distribute them evenly to create a classless atmosphere, and that, over time, the government would become unessesary and 'wither away', thus creating an equal and truely classless society.
    That was the THEORY. What actually happened was quite different.

    Plaid Cymru:
    You have two cows who moo in welsh. Therefore you deduce that all cows must speak welsh, and all calves must be taught at secondary school the welsh language, even though it cannot help you get a job. To counter this you make everyone think it is useful so all secondary school pupils are stuck doing a language they dont like, where the teachers are bitchy and of courseit is useless. You wonder why everyone hates you and noone cares about the welsh assemply government, even though it is a quango.

    Most people have no idea about the requirements of anarchy.
    Still, there are so many different definitions of anarchy those days...

    Quango : A government organisation that gets lots of funding but doesn't actually do anything, just squanders money on decorating their offices, that kind of thing.

    And from the Communist manifesto itself:
    This indicates that communism seeks a classless society.

    Classless does not necessarly mean equal. It can though.

    Not all of these are political, but it seems there is an extended version. E.g:

    CONSERVATIVISM: You have two cows. You freeze the milk and embalm the cows.

    COMMUNISM -- CHINESE - MAO STYLE: You have two pigs. The government launches a campaign to convince you to donate them "voluntarily" to provide meat for workers in the city. The government then declares that people don't need pigs to make pork. Quoting the correct phrases from your little red book, you and your neighbors try to create pork from sheer willpower. Your local party leader reports that you have exceeded all expectations. Your neighbors starve.

    DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. A vote is held, and the cows win.

    PACIFISM: You have two cows. They stampede you.

    SURREALISM: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

    ZIMBABWE: You have two black-and-white cows. You decide that you don't like the white parts, so decide to hack them off with a knife. You then wonder why the cows seem to be dying. You blame the white cow in the next paddock for the whole thing.
