Too often you come across the talk asking you to side with Socialism because it conforms the teachings of Bible and other holy scriptures. The following is the best I have come across so far to counter such a demand in a very meaningful way.
Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, was about to finish her first year of
college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very
liberal, and among other liberal ideals she was very much in favor of
higher taxes to support more government programs -- what her dad dismissed
as "redistribution of wealth."
She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative,
and a rich one at that -- a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the
lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a
professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish
desire to keep what he thought should be his, rather than benefit society.
One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on
the rich and the need for more government programs. "You don't need to
spend money on these expensive furnishings in this huge house when there
are people who need to earn more than minimum wage and better food!" she
To her shock and amazement, all The Donald said in reply was "Welcome to
That's it? she thought to herself -- no argument? But before she could even
think of a follow-up, he actually changed the subject! "How are you doing
with your studies?" Trump asked her.
Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let
him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a
very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no
time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have
time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because
she spent all her time studying.
Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?"
She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes,
she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on
campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the
parties, and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because
she's too hung over."
The Donald was closing in now. He asked Ivanka, "Why don't you go to the
Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your
friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and
certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."
Ivanka, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back,
"That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair!? I've worked really hard for
my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has
done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail
The Donald slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to capitalism."
