Stone Soup.

In the children s story “Stone Soup”, the solders throw some rocks into a pot and then convince the local villagers to contribute vegetables to the pot.  Then they all enjoy the soup.  Unfortunately while the villagers toiled for weeks and months to produce their vegetables, the solders just threw some rock into the pot.  And yet, they all got the same share of the soup.  Is it just me or does this story sound like Socialism?
