Social Engineering Freaks At It Again

Why can these social engineering freaks just leave kids alone?

Why do these morons never experiment on themselves?

Strangely related: George Jonas "Pacifists provoke predators"-a really, really good one.

"I had tea with a Dutch couple during that phase in the 1960s. Both schoolteachers, with pre-school boys of their own, they lived in what I could only describe a pacifist bungalow. They weren’t the most entertaining people but were they ever nice! I tried staying awake while they held forth on the virtue of raising children who were never introduced to competitive games, let alone war toys."

“Violence?” The husband pointed to a discoloured spot by the wall. “That’s where the TV set used to be. Banished it.” The wall behind a mantle piece showed evidence of censorship as well. “It was too bad about the pictures. They were family. But they had to go. Uncle Jan is in uniform, and so is Cousin Mark. They fought the Japanese in Dutch Indonesia during the Second World War.”

“Honourable, surely,” I said.

“Oh, Uncle Jan fought the Indonesian Republicans, too, after the war,” he replied. “But it’s not that. It’s uniforms. Guns. War. It’s conditioning kids to be killers. Well, not mine.”

"I excused myself. The washroom was in the basement. The toddlers were there, too. You guessed it. The brothers were enthusiastically playing war, pointing pieces of wood at one another and going: Ratatatatah! They were scoring bull’s eyes, too, as far as I could tell."
