Tony:I think the simplest is a dictatorship.
I'll make all of the decisions.
Margaret:You're sounding like a fascist.
This is supposed to be a partnership, remember?
Tony:Okay then, let's make it a monarchy.
I can be king and you can be queen.
Margaret:You'll probably still make all of the decisions as king.
Maybe we should consider an oligarchy.
Your family and mine can rule equally.
Tony:That's fine with me, but you're the communist, or at least socialist.
Don't you think an oligarchy would be too elitist?
I would think you would prefer a meritocracy of some sort.
Margaret:This isn't about my personal politics.
It's about what's best for our imaginary nation.
How about a simple democracy?
Tony:There's nothing simple about a democracy.
How about no government at all?
Margaret:You mean anarchy?
Tony:Sure, that would be the simplest.
Margaret:Why do I get the feeling that you're making suggestions based on the amount of work this assignment will take, rather than political considerations?
Tony:That's because you're very perceptive.
I have a big weekend planned!
