The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Keep in mind that Playmobil is headquartered in Zirndorf, Germany, so it's not really a huge shocker.
This isn't the first of its kind. I recall seeing the Playmobil Security Checkpoint a while back. I think Fischer-Price has some similar stuff too.
Hey, in addition to our George Orwell daycare centers, we get indoctrination from toys too!
Go to the Amazon site and look at the "Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed" section. These "customers" seem to be rather politically-minded.
My favorite also-viewed item, however, is the Playmobil Safe Crackers playset:
"The Playmobil Safe Crackers is the thief set that includes 2 thieves in burglar apparel, a large safe, and plenty of money and valuables to steal!"
Talk about sending a mixed message. Or is this something along the lines of what Ayn Rand said about the impossibility of ruling innocent men...
Well, when the burglars from the safe cracking playset try to escape in their getaway car, how else will they be caught?
I guess the sniper in the SWAT Helicopter could take them out.
Or maybe the cops would get lucky and they'd be caught by the cop running the speed trap. But maybe not.
And even if the safe crackers get caught, who'll stop the dad from getting all liquored up and drunk driving in the family car? No one, that's who. The Playmobil Cops _need_ checkpoints to keep the rest of us safe!
