Child A: so what *is* communism then?
Child B: well it's like this thing where all the people in a country decide to put all their money together and then share it out equally.
Child A: oh! Well that's just better!
Child B: well I don't know - then no one wants to do the really hard jobs.
Turns out Child B is reading Animal Farm, which was the starting point for this conversation. I look forward to their future career with interest. I have been teaching them Werewolf and The Resistance at board games club - this may be a mistake :)
