“The message behind every movie and book, behind every theme park and
T-shirt is that our children’s world needs Disney,” he says.
“So they absolutely must go to see the next Disney movie, which we’ll
also want to give them on DVD as a birthday present.
“They will be happier if they live the full Disney experience; and
thousands of families around the world buy into this deeper message as they
flock to Disneyland.”
He continues: “This is the new pilgrimage that children desire, a rite of
passage into the meaning of life according to Disney.
“Where once morality and meaning were available as part of our free
cultural inheritance, now corporations sell them to us as products.” — Telegraph
