Whether Conservative, Liberal, or NDP; you will have to agree that this analysis of Canadian politics is right on the mark! It just takes the innocence of a child to see it so clearly.
A little boy goes to his Dad and asks,
‘What is Politics?’
‘Well son, let me try to explain it this way:
I am the head of the family, so call me The Prime Minister.
Your mother is the administrator of the money, so
we call her the Government.
We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People.
The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class.
And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.
Now think about that and see if it makes sense.’
He finds that the baby has severely soiled his nappy. So the little boy goes
to his parents’ room and finds his mother 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 now.’
The father says,
‘Good, son, tell me in your own words
what you think politics is all about.’
The little boy replies,
The People are being ignored and the Future is deep in shit.’
Children have a clarity of thought that transcends any obtuse political diatribe.~
