    Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks (source of information: Wikipedia).

    Consumerism in the modern world is all about commercial aesthetics and socially-conscious programs reflective of a more engaged form of capitalism reminds us of the true labors of modern civilization, so how can we coordinate Toys for Tots with TrumpUSA?

    Isn't that a question for the United Nations? What do you think?



    Adults make elaborate plans and blueprints for dream-homes, and kids notice all these aspirations in their parents/elders. Kids want to feel embraced by the same kinds of commercial daydreams adults enjoy in the modern world.


    All around the world, kids participate in culture-enriching rituals representative of the customs of the societies their parents belong to, so socially-conscious consumerism-symbolic programs such as Toys for Tots represent modern governance, which is why we want to see such programs flourish in rich countries such as Denmark and challenged countries such as East Timor alike!


    All kids love toys symbolic of the adult worlds they praise. Comics-adapted toys and film-franchise adapted toys such as G.I. Joe (Hasbro/Marvel) and Star Wars (Lucas) action-figures and playsets therefore remind kids around the world of the modern popularity of Western canon. When international bodies reach out to Third World nations, they should be conscious of this fact. Program managers must understand trends in consumerism...


    Many modern American films present outlandish stories filled with colourful fantastic characters (e.g., Harry Potter films). These films invite kids to share in the modern marvel of cinema and high-def presentations (e.g., IMAX). Kids should be told by their parents that modern social leaders are invested in enhancing the world of youngsters. Modern governance is therefore very much society-based.


    Ancient Greece saw many colourful folk-tales and gods/avatars such as Medusa, Apollo, Zeus, Aphrodite, and Poseidon. Many of these characters are presented in modern interpretive films such as Wrath of the Titans. We want our social leaders to express the confident fact that embracing fantasy-rich storytelling parallels a committed social interest in making the lives of imaginative youngsters more vibrant and jovial.


    Around July of last year, my mom purchase for my niece a nifty toy kitchen-set, and my niece has loved playing with it ever since. What I've learned is that when kids find toys they love, they remember all the good things about civilization, and that's something that pro-consumerism politicians (e.g., U.S. President Donald Trump) need to focus on in this new age of Wal-Mart, Toys 'R Us, and RadioShack. In other words, this stuff shouldn't even sound like politics...


    Amusement parks are very popular around the world, and when you take your kids to a fun and colourful theme-park in Denmark or India, you might appreciate why politicians should feel obligated to enhance the conscious minds of youngsters who are our future leaders. It's tricky making consumerism-reflective socially-conscious programs such as Toys for Tots not sound commercial. So what kinds of politicians are capable of such diplomacy?


    When Christmas comes around this year, and you're thinking of buying some nifty glow-in-the-dark wrist-watches for your kids, remember the importance/value of writing to your Congressmen and reminding them of the symbolic value of Toys for Tots, UNICEF, and the Salvation Army. This is the 'laurel' of modern globalization, and it separates our era from eras such as the Industrial Revolution and the Colonial Era.


    Apple Computers made huge strides in the realm of 'imagineering' with tech-savvy products such as the iMac and iPod which seriously resemble toys! These new age 'tech-toys' serve to remind us that commerce and consumerism should be lively and imaginative so that shopping (e.g., Black Friday after Thanksgiving) feels more like culture than mindless ritual. We can then build better bridges between manufacturing and social diplomacy, no?


    Endorse programs such as Toys for Tots so you feel like our modern world is more socially-engaged. Write to U.S. President Donald Trump and ask him, "Do you feel that Toys for Tots symbolizes a positive 'arrow' in capitalism-theory?" This seems to be the way to a more 'responsible' form of global consumerism/capitalism. Why not start in Denmark?
