  • War toys induce violence

    Inez Tenenbaum was unanimously approved by US Senators to chair the Consumer Product Safety Commission on June 19. She vowed to ban or toughen standards testing for several consumer products from China, including toys with lead paint.

    Inez's top priority should be banning war toys. War toys are products threatening the safety of people everywhere with or without lead paint.

    War toys teach children to accept a militarized world, which is unsafe for people anywhere. War toys teach children that war and killing are acceptable in dealing with conflict and that people who look or think differently should be defeated. Some toys help children play together. Other toys teach them new things. But war toys teach children to fight. War toys teach them that might is right, and mock kindness, conciliation, cooperation, skill, and thoughtfulness toward others.

    In Nazi Germany toys for children were used to spread racial and political propaganda to German youth. Toys were also used as propaganda vehicles to indoctrinate children with militarism. From their first days in school, German children were taught love for Hitler, obedience to state authority, militarism, racism, and anti-Semitism.

    Inez Tenenbaum's husband Sam, whom she introduced at the beginning of her confirmation hearing, is a long-time, dedicated fighter of anti-Semitism and a friend of mine. Sam Tenenbaum challenged Lee Atwater for running an anti-Semitic campaign against Max Heller in 1978 in a congressional race. Heller was formerly Mayor of Greenville, SC and a Jewish refugee from Austria who had fled the Nazis. Atwater later apologized to Tenenbaum just before he died from brain cancer in 1991. War toys worked for Hitler, teaching German children the glories of war and empire much like they instruct US children in violence today.

    War toys and games are a family concern. War toys are playthings, used in simulated conflict, to gain power, and win by using violence. A war toy's aim is to wound or kill. Playing is fun, but when children play war games they learn things like creating two sides, "ours" and "theirs"; solving arguments by fighting; using guns and other war equipment as toys; praising and rewarding the use of violence and physical strength; starting fights and making enemies; pretending people don't suffer and die in a war; and making war seem okay.

    War toys are easier for children to play with than learning how to read or play the piano. War toys teach children aggression. Aggression needs an outlet, but aggression can be played out in a non-violent manner with peaceful games.

    Children should know what really happens in a war. People are hurt, maimed and killed. War toys, games, television shows, and movies using guns seldom show the real effect of what violence does to people. It is wrong to hurt others or pretend to hurt others, but violence sells in the media in action adventures like CSI and the multiple murders and shootings, bleeding and leading on local TV news.

  • An awareness of evil is better than no knowledge of it.

    If a child knows about war and about the bad things that can happen in it then they, in my opinion will be less likely to do it for real. If they don't mess around and play games they'll just think more about the real subject than the game version this putting them in a more dangerous decision. Besides if you do stop children from having these war toys then where does it stop? Do you stop buying books that have fights in them because you don't want your child to see fighting? Do you know let them read any book with death in it because it's too much for them to cope with? I think it is extremely unhealthy for children to be kept out of the loop with what is going on. Do you completely shelter them from the real world so that they cannot experience anything until the shock hits them when they are much older? Besides when is a child 'old enough' to know about war? As is the case with all questions on maturity, some people will be ready before others and that's the way it is. It is also in my opinion good for the children to know about the evils out there and that they know what an amazing job out brave soldiers are doing. To conclude yes they should be allowed war toys as I think it is just over protective and unnecessary for them to be shielded from it.
