6 Wonders of Communism
(1980s Eastern Bloc joke)

  1. There is no unemployment,
    but no one works.
  2. No one works,
    but the production quotas are always overfulfilled.
  3. All quotas are overfulfilled,
    but there is nothing to buy.
  4. There is nothing to buy,
    but everyone has all they need.
  5. Everyone has everything they need,
    but everyone is dissatisfied.
  6. Everyone is dissatisfied,
    but when there are elections,
    everyone votes for the system.
