A choice of hells

A young, ruthless executive died and went to hell. When he arrived, he was given a choice: capitalist hell, or socialist hell. In front of the socialist hell was an incredibly long line; but not one person waited in front of the capitalist hell. Even now the executive believes in informed decision-making, so he asks the guard about socialist hell. "In socialist hell," answers the guard, "they boil you in oil, whip you, and then put you on the rack."

"And what do they do to you in capitalist hell?"

"The exact same thing."

The executive frowns: "So why is everybody in line for the socialist hell?"

"Because in socialist hell," explains the guard, "they are always out of oil, whips, and racks."
