The little fables, parables, with a moral at the end, are the complete antidote to left wing ideology.
Want to know how to think about welfare and redistribution? Remember the stories of The Grasshopper and the Ant, and The Little Red Hen?
Wrestling with the Idea of global warming? How about The Boy Who Cried Wolf, and Chicken Little?
Considering President Obama, his Nobel prize and the media adoration?
Just recall the story The Emperor’s New Clothes.
Entrepreneurship and incrementalism? The Crow and the Pitcher
Taxes and regulation? The Dog and the Bone, and The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs.
Class envy? The Dog in the Manger, and The Fox and the Grapes.
Liberal Republicans? The Woman and the Viper.
Government size and power? The Frogs Who Desired a King.
Come to think of it, what is the first thing liberals try to do in any elementary school ? They try to remove the classic stories and replace them with “modern: tales. Now I know why.
