Odd that a country with more poverty, repression and utter backwardness could produce children lacking any and all characteristics of their bumbling ways. The children put forth by communist propaganda seem a strange irony, and we’re even more riveted to these videos by the fact the stakes are so very high for the young ones. On the one hand we want to celebrate the ability for these children to overcome the starvation that befalls most of their peers, but then we also have to wonder what would happen to our less than perfect children who would rather be … well, knocking about the guitars and playing with them as if they were tennis rackets rather than fine instruments to be coddled and caressed.
