Dad, what's politics?

A little boy goes to see his Dad and
asks, "Dad, What is politics?"

His 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 Mum, 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
soiled his nappy. So the little boy
goes to his parents' room and 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 bed.

The next morning, the little boy
says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics

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
