A WHISPER AND A CLAMOR

anberlinlyrics:


Growing tired of bedside resolve
Public display of depression
Something’s got to give now
Something’s going to break down
I grow tired of writing songs
While people listen but never hear what’s really going on now
Tell me what’s so wrong now

Clap your hands all ye children
There’s a…

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

Socialism at work.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

hint: reason they became illegal is because it’s a CHILDRENS thing and CHILDREN would eat and choke on the small pieces back when they didn’t have a warning about it.

but the toy’s is in a plastic container inside the egg it’s not like there’s little toy parts floating around in it if you somehow manage to swallow that huge ball container then it’s probably just natural selection

In Germany we didn’t need a warning, we were smart enough not to eat a fucking huge yellow container.
