Scandinavia seems to be losing much of their edge in actually advancing the state of the world, and East Asia motivates kids in ways that would be considered child abuse, or just plain assault and battery in our culture. I thank God for the pressures and motivations my parents brought to bear on me - I turned out to be a relatively productive member of society instead of a low-life leach. Seems that the fact that my parents were involved in my education and would rather help me with homework than watch TV (or at least they acted like they preferred to help me with my homework) must have had a lot to do with it.
