Proper upbringing is indeed a foundation of adult well-being. Unfortunately, not every nation understands well-being as moral worthiness of personality or at least some kind of house-family-car American dream.
Ruskies, for example, are quite happy with GULAG, provided with one little right: to be able to terrorize someone else, preferably who is 10x weaker. Sometimes their plans fail (like in Ukraine) and then it’s time to brag with glory of the past days, teaching young generations how to be a true patriot of mother Russia.
While adult ruskies can drink “georgian ribbon” vodka, then drive a car camouflaged with cardboard to look like a tank and take part in some patriotic performance to glorify deeds of their ancestors, little ones aren’t left forgotten and bored. Of course they (legally) can’t share the joy of patriotic russian feast, but pride and kitsch are all theirs.
Like patriotic games – in contrast to what evil Ukrainian Nazis are doing.
Or this bed in shape of Buk missile launcher used by russian terrorists to destroy the Malaysian Boeing.
It’s being sold in Russia for 14.000 roubles ($215 approximately). The product page (both cached and original versions) is available in the Web. For additional price, loving russian parents can purchase an integrated nightlight and every happy, patriotic customer gets a free license plate with their child’s name on it.
Well, I can give ruskies a free idea: why not start making beds in shape of refrigerator trucks? Everybody should remember that after dinner comes the reckoning.
