Brave New…

"Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they're so frightfully clever. I'm really awfully glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They're too stupid to be able to read or write. Besides they wear black, which is such a beastly colour. I'm so glad I'm a Beta."

Well that is still to come in 2540. Despite all optimistic forecasts on life expectancy it is safe to assume that neither I nor you are going to live to see that happen. But don’t be upset, the present is almost as bright. The only difference is that children are not conditioned in their sleep. Instead they are subject to aggressive conditioning every waking minute of their lives starting from birth.

This is how it goes:
I am a little girl
oh so cute and oh so sweet!

As sweet as an icecream.
In my world it's all about the looks.
I live a wild glam life
of constant party and fiesta.
My primary everyday concern 
is what to wear.
Of course I go for couture
and sparkling dancing shoes.
I get glamorous presents all the time.
I can also bake tarts

and grow flowers.
Which makes me a supergirl.
Everything is my life can be described as chique, pretty, glamorous, couture - all things that make a girl happy.
Kittens are cute.
So is Bambi.
I will grow up to be a lady blabla.
Until I glamorously die.

Obviously, I don’t do driving, scuba diving or sailing. Don’t expect me to be an athlete or play ball games of any kind. I don’t like robots, dinosaurs and rock music. Supermen are for boys. Did we cover all the life topics?

I think I'm done shopping for my little daughter.
