My wife and I saw and enjoyed the movie, The Lorax, this evening. I was expecting a propaganda-fest from what I had read on the net about The Lorax being a green scheme to brainwash innocent children. I thought that the message was very gentle indeed and confined to the very end of the film. The alarmist warnings I had read on the web reminded me very much of the reactions of parents who kept their children home from school when President Obama’s first message to school children was scheduled. Parents who are concerned about their children being exposed to ideas that differ from their ideas have very little confidence in their children or their own ideas.
