An economics professor at a local 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 would work, and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich – a great equalizer.
The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan.”
All grades would be averaged, and everyone would receive the same grade – so no one would have to fail, but no one would be able to receive an A.
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 far less. The second test average was a D. No one was happy.
When the 3rd test finally rolled around, the average was an F.
As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased – but bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would agree to study for the benefit of anyone or everyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor explained to them that socialism would also ultimately fail for exactly the same reason – because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when someone (government) takes the reward away, no one will try or care enough to strive to succeed.
Couldn’t be any simpler than that.
Please pass this on. And, remember, there IS a test coming up, we can’t afford to fail in 2012

"Fair enough thought and observation, Raymond. Just one thing. If you’re talking about merely a linear, material scenario in a world of scarcity, I would agree with you. But consider for a moment a different “reward”, and motivation for contributing one’s best to the welfare of all humanity. If everyone gives of their best to one another, out of gratitude to their Creator for life with meaning, then we can release the training wheels of interest-bearing money and fractional-reserve banking – drop the money-changers from sullying the temple of life and controlling humanity through fear – and move now into a new era. Not the New World Order planned for us by those puffed up by pride and power; but a stage of synthesis of all that has gone before, into a global society of brothers and sisters living closer to the ideal of their Creator.
"One Planet – One Humanity – One Destiny. On a higher level than that planned for us by those holding the power strings today, out of ignorance of, and denial of, their true Source.
"Love them, too; and they’ll come around. But don’t wait for that to happen, while you usher in the new in your own life. Do it for its own sake. Not out of a sense of a reward for doing so. And if we do, then ‘all else will be added unto us’. In abundance."
We really need to get away from thinking in terms of reward for effort via money. Money - the money system currently in vogue - needs to go. And I'm not talking about communism as its replacement. Communism is merely a horse of a different colour: Humans thinking to rule humans by force and fear. I'm talking about our releasing the role of 'profit' in human endeavour. Thinking to make a personal 'profit' on some activity. When the answer to the future is to do things, and think of things, as a benefit to humanity - us - as a whole. To do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Knowing - really getting - that as we do to others, so do we do to ourselves. Because beyond the realm of separation - outside of the matrix that we are embedded in - We Are All One. So we are doing literally to ourselves as we do to others.
Otherwise, the role of profit in giving individuals an incentive to do things will continue to lead us astray, and down such roads as the road to a dystopian, police-state future - the road planned for us now, by our human/moneyed/erstwhile Masters, and down which we are proceeding, seemingly at an accelerating pace.
Item. Vaccines that are causing infertility - on purpose. (Especially the HPV vaccine, and the flu vaccines.)
Item. GM foods, by which humanity can be controlled (patented seeds); and thus, towards which humanity is being herded, by such measures as the state outlawing access to the foodstuffs of private, organic gardens. Can't have that; that's independence, and health. Need dependence, and ill health, so that people can be controlled more easily. Case in point: the current e-coli scare in Europe, with a superbug that has all the earmarks of having been engineered.
Mike Adams, of Natural News, has written and videoed well of this appalling matter.
My response to one of his articles on this subject:
(Mike Adams:Forensic evidence that e-coli superbug engineered as germ warfare)
"Thanks, Mike, for this info. Yes, there is still an outside chance that there were enough antibiotics as water contaminants that they somehow resulted in 8 classes being resisted by this e-coli strain. But that chance begins to pale against the other current factors that you mention.* Taken all together, the most likely answer is what you suggest. And that means that the PTB are getting to a very serious stage of their agenda to cull and control the human populace by any means possible. And P.S.: Vaccines cause the immune system to be suppressed. So what a clever tool: seed superbugs into the environment, and then create vaccines for more and more illness & disease conditions, which then suppress the immune system, making more and more people susceptible to illness and death...these erstwhile Controllers are a perfect example of what happens when Man loses sight of his basic nature, and purpose, as 'spiritual beings having a human experience'. ('Without a vision, the people perish' - in more ways than one.) The PTB need to be deposed from their positions of power, and stat."
* Such factors as how the U.S. Congress recently passed a 'food safety' law that was really about curtailing the public's access to fresh, organic foodstuffs, and putting the public thereby further in the hands of the likes of Monsanto - who were obviously unhappy with Spain's voting to keep the EU GM-free; and one thing leads to another in life, and in this case, Spain's food exports dealt a deadly blow by being 'advertised' as responsible for the e-coli superbug outbreak in the EU.
All of which brings up the matter of the HIV pathogen, and the considerable evidence that it, too, was engineered; and on and on, in the murky matter of pathogens stalking humanity, to keep the populace controlled and sickly. A humanity needing now to break out of its controlling matrix.
The moneyless society will take care of this controlling factor in one fell swoop. Since there will be no more 'incentivizing' to make money off dealing with people as sheep to be sheared - without the carrot of 'profit' motivating the activities of the individuals in the society - the only activities that will take place will be those that enhance life, and living; in alignment with our higher natures, as 'spiritual beings having a human experience'.
And not a moment too soon.
Humanity: Tear down this wall that is keeping us from expressing our higher natures, for the sake of doing so; not for an expectation of personal gain.
The wall that is made of money.
The wall that IS money.
Interest-bearing money, with its companion piece, fractional-reserve banking.
Time, and counting, for it to go.
And a new world to be gained from its passing.
A far, far better world than we have known heretofore.
On this plane of existence, at least.
