    When I was living in Hungary (early 90's--just after the end of Communism) the joke was:

    "What is Socialism? The solution to problems that otherwise would never have occurred."

    It doesn't sound as witty in English translation, but basically everyone knew that Socialism was creating the problems it purported to solve.
