Santa is a Socialist



Anonymous said...

Not so correct.

Socialists take from those who have and give to those who have not, usually taking promise wildly disproportionate coercion.

Santa GIVES, there's a stringent naughty/nice test, and it's the delivery mechanismis usually arranged within small family groups quite voluntarily.

No, Santa's Workshop is a non-profit organization which provides employment for the height-challenged and distributes gifts according to behavioral merit.

But the value of the gifts is positively correlated to household income, which means Santa's benefit structure is regressive in nature.

To each according to his wealth-adjusted behavioral merit!

The most pernicious of recent holiday traditions is 'stealing' gifts at office party secret Santa exchanges. I'll never participate in organized theft.

That's funny. Just the other day I was thinking to myself how much Santa resembled Karl Marx. I wonder if this is just a coincidence.
