Godonomics: Ant and the Sluggard.
Will-E Coyote had incentive: a Roadrunner Stew, but he never had to face the consequences of falling off that cliff. Sure, he’d fall 100 stories and a puff of air would replace his outline; but in the next scene he was fine. He never learned to reap what he sowed (Galatians 6:8). The cartoonists rescued him from the pain of his actions. Socialism does the same. Throughout the proverbs are two characters: The Ant and the Sluggard. The ant works hard, gathers his food in the summer to prepare for the winter (Proverbs 6:6, 30:25) while the sluggard ooozes around. Socialism and corporatism tries to punish the ant (the saver, the wise spender, the frugal buyer) by taking from him to help out the sluggard (the poorly managed company, the corrupt union boss, or the “needy” political cause). And the sluggard learns that laziness pays. The ant learns that hard work is punished. So the sluggard hires lobbyist to petition the government to take from the mean ant with “all his food” to provide for the poor helpless sluggard shivering in his trail of goo.
