“My Homer is not a communist. He may be a liar, a pig, an idiot, a communist, but he is not a porn star.”

“Karl Marx is damn sexy, I want to be him, Kevin 07, Karl 08”
Socialist Alternative often abbreviated as SA is a monothesic Trotskyist religion originating with the teachings of the prophet Karl Marx, a 19th century comedian. It is now a popular religion among University students who call each other "comrades" and have unfortunately contracted a nasty parasitic brain worm known as Echinococcus Marxolosa. This previously small and not widely known group were responsible for shooting the last Australian Prime Minister John Howard multiple times in the back of the head, charming the nation and gaining power in the recent federal election. Marxist law involves rulings that touch on virtually all aspects of life and society, the new changes were cheerfully embraced by the general public. Australia has since become a socialist utopia where everyone is happy and runs free in fields of wild flowers, holding hands and singing the Internationale.
History – the creation of utopia
Many like to believe SA was created by "God" (Karl Marx) himself, others think it originated in Nazi Germany. The truth is that the Socialist Alternative began in Melbourne in 1995. It was actually created by two members of the International Socialist Organisation who contracted the brain worm zoonotically one Saturday afternoon from a radioactive pigeon attack. They were then expelled from the organisation for potentially ruining its prestigious reputation with their "left wing" sexual behaviour involving a member of an equine species. However as the infection propagated, they went on to form an army of people and zebras who share similar "left wing" morals.
Historically the parasite was mainly endemic to Melbourne, until 2003 when it evolved in the reproductive tract of a radioactive pigeon and began to spread around Australia. It is now also a quite common STD in Sydney NSW. This mutant form can also cause herpes-like lesions.
As the parasite continued to spread, it became a nationwide phenomena and managed to infect celebrity singer/songwriter Kevin Rudd and his back up vocalist Julia. The number one album "Rights for workers and working families!" enabled the Socialist Alternative to gain incredible public support and take over the running of the country in the 2007 federal election. Originally this was quite a challenge because the average voter thought that “bourgeoisie” was a type of sandwich but after that was cleared up it was easy to get Australians to believe that communism could work. There is no denying its success in the past. One only has to look at the transformation of Russia, Ethiopia, Cuba, Somalia, Laos, North Korea, Vietnam, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Bulgaria, Romania, and Mozambique to understand the obvious benefits. The brain worm is irrelevant really.
Australia 2008 is a wonderful place to live. With the abolition of money, automobiles and Guy Sebastian, most people have quit their jobs and become butterfly farmers. The revolution has eliminated all racism, homophobia, sexism, and reality television programs, hereby proving theories that all these things were indeed caused by capitalism and had nothing to do with the band Human Nature. The economy is maintained as was expected with the introduction of this new government system and it is predicted to move forward due to the high demand for butterflies internationally and the expert knowledge that all Marxists have of economics.
Beliefs and rituals
The Ten Commandments of Marxism:
- 1.Thou shalt have no other gods before Karl.
- 2.Thou shalt not take the name of Karl in vain.
- 3.Thou shalt blame everything bad on capitalism.
- 4.Thou shalt hate everything because everything is caused by capitalism.
- 5.Thou shalt not kill animals for meat, thou shalt kill capitalists instead.
- 6.Thou shalt start stimulating conversation topics at every opportunity about the price of wool in communist Russia.
- 7.Thou shalt not watch commercial television, only SBS (Socialist Broadcasting Station)
- 8.Thou shalt not have an open mind when reading non-socialist literature.
- 9.Thou shalt take all common sense, nail it to a Frisbee, and fling it over a rainbow.
- 10.Thou shalt covet thy neighbour’s house, thy neighbour’s wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his ass, and anything that is thy neighbour's. For this is the true meaning of communism.
The Australian people that abide by Marxist teachings never complain or protest about anything and are happy with what they have as they have the same as everyone else because they are equal. The religion provides people with complete happiness. Self doubt, negative thoughts and emos are a thing of the past.
New Marxist traditions in Australia include a pilgrimage to Kirribilli House and methodical chanting of religious texts 14 times a day.
Marxists consider the Communist Manifesto to be the literal word of God, it is the central religious text and is considered to be the most influential socialist propaganda of all time. The ideas from this manifesto have triumphed over many countries spreading happiness and wealth like Typhoid Mary spread lethal bacteria. Other religious texts include: How Communism Works, Marxism in Today’s World, and Clifford the Big Red Dog.
In January 2008 the Socialist Alternative set up “education facilities” where people of opposing religious beliefs and opposing views on the economical stability of a Marxist society were sent. Suspicion arose when people left the facility in denial about gravity existing, terrorism existing, everything bad not being the government's fault, Britney Spears not being "that innocent", and Narnia being their next travel destination. Communist ideologies can also cause sporadic outbreaks of violent explosive diarrhoea which is why some SA members call themselves "trots" (trot to the toilet, trot back.)
