So I was playing Democracy 3 last night (computer game that [this’ll blow your mind] simulates a democracy).
I was going whole hog on Socialism; 90% income tax, but all services provided for, from cradle to grave. My approval rating was over 80%, and I ended up getting more than quadruple the votes of the opposition government. My credit rating was AAA, I was the healthiest and best educated country in the whole world, unemployment was nonexistent, homelessness was nonexistent, crime was nonexistent, and I had slowly replaced all of my cabinet ministers with people who shared my political views…
And then I got assassinated by rich capitalists.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
