But the emperor isn't wearing anything at all!

dad reminded me of the short tale of The Emperor's New Clothes...

"An Emperor who cares for nothing but his wardrobe hires two weavers who promise him the finest suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or "just hopelessly stupid". The Emperor cannot see the cloth himself, but pretends that he can for fear of appearing unfit for his position or stupid; his ministers do the same. When the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they dress him in mime and the Emperor then marches in procession before his subjects. A child in the crowd calls out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor cringes, suspecting the assertion is true, but holds himself up proudly and continues the procession."

in Egypt the oldie said for 30 or may be 59 yrs "life is good" while it was piece of shit and "that's enough" while they got literally nothing and "we should forgive" while they are beaten !!

they tried to transfer this fear to their children, over the generations till we reached a point when the youth began to refuse and discuss. the oldie accused them of being impolite. then the youth said "but the emperor isn't wearing anything at all!".

then the oldie discovered that they were blind or at least fear made them so...

please let your child express himself and teach him how to make a decision and choose freely and don't handicap your children by making their lives easy
