Game. I say a metaphor, you tell me what it represents. There is a correct answer.

METAPHOR: A marionette puppet with the strings tied to itself e.g. the arm string is attached to the arm and then loops back to tie again to the arm.

Wrong, it represents democracy and how it doesn't work.

METAPHOR: A kite with a string that is too long.

You might fly very high, but there's always someone holding you down?

No, it represents communism i.e. it has potential to go high but no one can get it off the ground.

Anyone else want to do the metaphor?

I simply disagree with that answer, and it also makes the assumption that you can't get a kite off the ground, which is not the case. Maybe if you tacked on "on a windless day" then you might have a leg to stand on.
But you don't have to use the whole string right away man, you have to ease into it. Which, ultimately, has been the problem with upstart communist nations, they just want to throw all that string in the air and hope the kite catches.

Communism is alright as long as you don't do it near too many trees. You might have trouble getting it back down if it gets stuck.

Communism is all right, but if it starts to rain or thunder you should go inside and play video games.

Metaphor for a sad broken down husk of a man, drunk on power?
