The Lorax movie

     All kinds of children, including homeschoolers, have enjoyed Dr. Seuss’s books, such as The Lorax.  Unfortunately, these kid’s stories have been hijacked by Hollywood to promote their leftist agenda. 

World Magazine: Mar 24, 2012

     World Magazine’s March 24, 2012, review of the new Lorax movie begins, “On Friday, March 2, Universal Pictures released The Lorax, a movie version of the Dr. Seuss book, and it promptly raked in $70 million. That’s the strongest opening of any film this year, more than tripling its closest competition for the weekend.  Part of the reason is its family-friendly billing. Clean, family-oriented movies sell more tickets, and The Lorax—rated PG for mild language—has no vampires, no half-naked teens, and a minimum of cursing.”

     Why there even has to be a “minimum of cursing” is beyond me, but the review goes on to point out that while The Lorax proves to be a bonanza at the box office, it is also a bonanza for liberal groups wanting to indoctrinate children, saying, “Near the final scenes, the townsfolk band together and sing joyfully of their new tree, “Let it grow!” Who wouldn’t want to join right in?  Apparently, big bad businessmen and the consumers who love them. At the heart of the movie is an anti-business scene in which the Once-ler, formerly friends with the Lorax, now sells him out and clear-cuts the land to ‘shake that bottom-line.'”
