Great story on true socialism

student before but had, once, failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that socialism worked 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
socialism. All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the
same grade so no one would fail and no one would 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. But, 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 little.. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling
all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit
of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the
professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because
when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when
government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to
succeed. Could not be any simpler than that....
