Imagine you’re a statist and you want to raise your kids to have the same spiteful and envious mindset.
What’s the best approach? Well, sending your children to a government school is an obvious first step.
But kids sometimes rebel against big-government orthodoxy, so perhaps you want to take additional measures such as a visit to their school from President Obama.
As shown in the image, he can tell them about the glories of redistribution.
That being said, you probably want some insurance. An extra way of helping them understand the joy of living off other people.
So what could be better than these new toys, called the Kronies!
They’ll definitely realize that big government is very profitable if you’re an insider!
P.S. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I feel compelled to inform left-wing readers that this post – including the video – is satire. In other words, there aren’t real action figures called the Kronies. If you want to teach your kids to rape and pillage other people using the coercive power of government, you’re on your own. My only advice is to keep them from reading about the fiscal chaos in Europe so they don’t realize the consequences of redistribution and corruption.
P.P.S. And for the rest of you readers, the Kronies satire video was produced by John Papola, who gave us the famous Keynes v. Hayek rap contest, followed by the equally entertaining sequel, featuring a boxing match between Keynes and Hayek. And even though it’s not the right time of year, he also gave us the satirical commercial for Keynesian Christmas carols.
