Most recently for telling my nephew that death is something that exists and all people experience it at some point.

Oh my god, had a similar conversation with mine years ago where I had to explain dead in regards to electronics is different than organic beings. hahaha

Also I am slightly convinced that Santa Claus is also a ploy to raise kids to be chill about living in a police state.

...and grow accustomed to the idea of slave labour being okay.

I literally never told my kid Santa was real. She decided he was. I never agreed with her that he was. She just thinks the shit I buy comes from Santa. I'm looking forward to her getting all bent out of shape at me later when she figures out he's not real because I never ONCE said he was real.

I suddenly have the urge to tell a kid I killed Santa.

to be fair, a magical man in the sky is more believable than the fact that all the adults around the world are conspiring against children and lying to them for the sole reason that they find it cute.

Or um, to manipulate their kids into behaving. My kid starting saying shit like she wouldn't get presents if she was bad because of Santa. We have been wishy-washy about not saying Santa doesn't exist while also not saying he does because she liked the magic man bullshit. But we were very fucking clear that Christmas is not a yearly fucking review.

Can you elaborate this? For the rest of your post, I agree.
