RE: On a serious note: Parents read !!!
My mom forced me to carry a lunch box all through school, but it turned out ok because my Lone Ranger box was made of high-tensile steel, which I used to bash the heads of the rich kids who got to eat in the cafeteria. If they were really big, the thermos of scalding Campbell's Soup, which has the effect of Air Force napalm, really came in handy. Mom really does know best.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
