World News in a Sandpit
Most psychologists would probably agree that grownups don't REALLY exist. As we grow older, we simply pretend that our behavior is more rational than it was when we were still sitting in the sandpit, but in fact, while the sandpit has changed, we really haven't: Most of what so-called grownups do really just comes from the same emotional motivation that they had when they were really, really small.

What I'd like to see is a satirical news show that doesn't collaborate in enhancing the self-importance of public figures, and which doesn't pretend that there is some deeper meaning to their behavior, when so often there isn't. In that show, the daily news would be reenacted by preschool children, and so viewers could more easily understand what's REALLY going on. The likes of Kim Jong-un, Angela Merkel, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Donald Trump and so forth would be portrayed as the (unpopular) kids which they really are deep inside, highlighting in their quest for attention, love and respect.
