"Pied Piper of Hamelin" (Germany) is a history-based folk tale about a strange visitor in a German town (called Hamelin) whose special atmospheric skill at using mind power and flute sounds to draw out and eradicate all pestilent rodents finds him recruited to solve a terrible Hamelin rodent infestation problem, but when he removes the rodents as requested and is not paid for the work properly, he decides to use his gathering skills to kidnap all of the community's innocent children as social recompense for labor injustice.

The civilization anxiety qualities of this labor-related folk tale perhaps illuminates the colorful governance virtues presented in populist-celebratory movies such as "War of the Buttons" (1994).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
