12. I always found this story annoying...

You see in this fictional story the price of beer (or the amount owed) went down, but in the real world the amount owed went way up (cost of unjust wars) and the "10th beer drinker" got to pay less (Bush tax cuts) and then "10th beer drinker" got upset that the he was paying more and took half of everyone's beer (wealth hoarding). But it was OK because giving up your beer to the wealthy was good for the Bar...
