I had to post this here, it just seemed too fun not to. Monopoly has a reputation as a wrecker of friendships and families, a wasteland of destruction for relationships. I cannot really recall having that experience, but I didn’t play it a great deal after about age 10. In the scenario below, if you follow the link, you’ll find something where I would quite happily sit back and watch while munching on a bag of chips. It certainly would beat the Oscars or Academy Awards for me. You see terms like Socialism and Communism bandied about a lot right now. but honestly, they’re largely being used incorrectly with their implied associations. Opponents to the ACA and similar programs yell, “Socialism!” while ignoring how our government and tax structure work, but what I think they’re really recalling to mind, if they are truly recalling anything, is a weird fusion of Stalin/Marx/Hitler’s Germany as well as probably a few others thrown into the mix with a slight hint of Mccarthyism to flavor the stew. I’m not sure Marx or Engels would have recognized what passes for the idea of Socialism/Communism here in the US. But I digress, enjoy the comic and the anarchy that follows.
