    has firearm ads in it. Yet I and many others of that generation became pacifists and rejected the whole gun thing. Most kids like dinosaurs and trains. Why? They're big and powerful. Kids are small and weak and they know it.

    When baby animals play, it's faux fighting. People do the same. It's a survival mechanism. It's innate.

    But when that violence goes beyond survival or when people become confused as to what constitutes survival, then it's a societal problem, a tribal problem; not a family problem.  

    We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.
