    Yeah, the guy’s a hippie, but he’s also right. Turning children loose to solve problems teaches them not just that problems can be solved, but /they/ can solve those problems. There’s no reason to wait for a savior or follow a demagogue when the power is in your hands. That’s a strong lesson to learn, and looking around, most people bumping through this world have yet to figure it out. Good stuff for just a simple kid’s game.
