How Disney Devours the World
Add to Wish List
Revulsion is good. Revulsion is healthy. Each of us has
limits, unarticulated boundaries of taste and tolerance,
and sometimes we forget where they are. Peep Land is here
to remind us; a fixed compass point by which we can govern
our private behavior. Because being grossed out is
essential to the human experience; without a perceived
depravity, we'd have nothing against which to gauge the
advance or decline of culture; our art, our music, our
cinema, our books. Without sleaze, the yardstick shrinks
at both ends. Team Rodent doesn't believe in sleaze,
however, nor in old-fashioned revulsion. Square in the
middle is where it wants us all to be, dependable
consumers with predictable attitudes. The message, never
stated but avuncularly implied, is that America's values
ought to reflect those of the Walt Disney Company, and not
the other way around."
