|CHAPTER 411 aIn fact, this new idea of giving money away to the people who need it will catch on,
2 bIn a big way,
3 cAnd become very very popular,
4 dBecause the politicians will look very statesmanlike giving away millions,
5 While the philanthropists will look miserly giving away their dimes,
6 eWhich is why the government will be delighted to discover how easy it is to take more and more millions away from the philanthropists,
7 So that they can have their picture taken giving it away,
8 fUntil lots and lots of people in the Most Chosen Nation on Earth will one day decide that they were wrong for all the years they thought it was the government who couldn't be trusted the most,
9 gBecause the ones who can't be trusted the most are the greedy Capitalists,
10 hWho borrowed all that money,
11 iAnd then threw it all away.
CHAPTER 421 But the government won't succeed in taking all the money away from the Capitalists,
2 Because the Capitalists will come up with a new idea,
3 Which they will know is a good idea because it worked so many times before,
4 And will again,
5 jBecause when everybody who lives in a Capitalist Nation is basically out of money,
||6 And can't buy things anymore,
7 They get restless,
8 Which means there will be a war soon,
9 And so it's probably a good idea to start investing in munitions factories,
10 Including factories that make warships,
11 And factories that make ktanks,
12 And factories that make guns,
13 And factories that make gunpowder,
14 And what do you know!
15 lHello War!
16 Goodbye Great Depression!
17 mHappy days are here again!
CHAPTER 431 And so (said the pen),
2 nThe miraculous recovery brought about by war will eventually bring Capitalism back in style,
3 And when all the oplanes and tanks and bombs and bullets have ensured victory against the evil foe,
4 The Most Chosen Nation will embark on a new pgolden era of wealth,
5 And they will learn once again the things they've forgotten,
6 For a while, anyway.
7 qFor example, they will learn that if they want something, they're going to pay for it, with cash money, if they're lucky, because the other ways of paying for things are almost all worse.
8 And they will learn to work hard at creating value, because rfalse value vanishes in a stidal wave of empty paper.
