    Well, obviously.

    And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it."

    maybe one good thing about this is that they won't grow up spoiled, it's proven that the higher difficulty the more skilful kids become.
    in a future none shall have friends, family. this is the only tru.

    They're refugees, though, a lot of them people from what is more or less the most intensely impoverished region in the western hemisphere.


    Not sure there's much risk of growing up spoiled to begin with.

    Also, like most truisms, this one only applies narrowly. A little hardship is good for the soul, too much though, and a person will spend all their resources barely surviving without any hope of thriving.
