Halloween- A Socialist Holiday?

1 11 2009

I have recently come to the realization that Halloween should he the Socialists favorite holiday.

1. Redistribution of wealth
Children receive massive quantities of candy in the ritual known as “trick-or-treat.”. These children typically have no means of paying for said candy. Sounds like the opposite of capitalism to me.

2. Wealth is accumulated in direct proportion to the amount of labor expended.
Those children who spend four haours going door to door will typically have significantly larger amounts of candy than those who only “trick-or-treat” for 15 minutes.

Is this the American way?

You decide.
