As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “The Abolitionist Movement,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. One year, a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?,” the reporter asked.
“Why, sir,” said the farmer. “Didn’t your know? The wind picks up the pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grew inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”
My Commentary: Oh, the Anarchy!
