Why Obama’s New Policy Will Never Work?

An Lecturer at a government college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The Lecturer then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan” All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED. The Lecturer told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that.

Dear Readers, please suggest a fitting Moral for the story!

    A story which is giving wrong idea or message. socialism is the best political solution to curtail the exploitation of rich. Think, why the rich become richer and poor become poorer. Billions of people are starving and while few hundreds of people are living in luxurious life. Millions have no food, shelter not even water while rich waste the foods.

    The equality from government point of view has been understood wrongly, it means that whatever is the government resources should be distributed equally so everyone should have enough resources for basic needs of life, if someone needs more than the basic needs of life then he or she has to do more work. The same thing could be applied to test, if the teacher would have announced that every one will be passed, but those who will work more will be given higher grades, then it would have motivated the students to do more work for good grades, not to just get passed.

    This a political story and not a moral one, therefore, it cannot be subjected to your usual story or inspirational one. The Republican are oppose to the Medicare due to it’s benefit to the ordinary black Americans that lack the same foot holding like their counterpart …..the system is skewed against them…it does not mean they are lazy or unproductive…..please restrict your topic to real moral story that we can benefit from it……

      yes… you are right Mr. othman

    World need an alternate solution in social, economical & political systems. Man made rules were tested and failed as rightly said by Nahil. Why not we turn to our Creator. Don’t be astonished, as He provided us facilities to live, He has given system of life as well. The entire universe follows His rules hence at peace. Man with limited authority (Given by God) neglected it hence at trouble!!!
    Does it sounds good. If Yes turn to the Creator.

    Ability to achieve and striving to accomplish it is a great feeling than the accomplishment of the goal itself.
    Its doesn’t matter much for me what i have achieved , what matters most is what i am striving for ?
    If i am not improving, i would feel myself psychologically as a dead piece of meat and nothing more.

    umm… socialism isn’t the solution.. and neither western capitalism :P, both tested and failed.

    So nice moral story. Every one should strive hard to win the goal and it becomes so if every one should worked hard to complete for the winning of its goal. I appreciate.
