    In this case Socialism comes out as very humane.

    socialism is very humane

    it's such a pity it's an unsustainable system brought down by the base human instincts of greed and laziness

    and that socialists are too short sighted to see that

    ie

    you have 2 cows

    you give 1 to your neighbor

    now you have 1 cow each

    you work your fields, eat your vegetables, tend your cow and drink it's milk

    he eats his cow

    now there is only 1 cow

    and he wants half

    so you kill your cow cut it up and give half to him

    for a short time you have steak with your vegetables

    he just has steak

    no one has milk

    so soon enough he's run out of steak and wants some of yours

    you can see where this is leading

    you working your butt off to support his lazy ass

    so 1 night you slip away to a new village

    where they don't practice socialism

    at least that's been the experience

    of any society that continues to take from the worker

    and give to the non-worker

    The only flaw I see is with this part of the hypothesis:
    you have 2 cows
    you give 1 to your neighbor
    now you have 1 cow each
    . . . is that the 'giving' of the cow would not be.
    The socialists would forcibly take it off the two-
    cow man and give it to his neighbour.
