My 4 year old shares some thoughts on global politics

My almost-five-year-old likes to play our Wii with me. And every once in a while she asks me to play the James Bond shooter, “GoldenEye.”

The other day I was playing it and she was watching me fight my way through a hidden base full of foreign soldiers when she said, “Daddy, you think they are the bad guys, but they think you are the bad guy.”

“I never thought of it like that.”

Yes, that’s right. Sounds like my 4 year old could have single-handedly stopped the Cold War. Pretty amazing. I’m looking forward to her ambassadorial career someday.
