The Sky is Falling

• Uncommon Sense
In 1943, as a comment on the war Walt Disney produced a cartoon version of the classic Chicken Little. In this version of the tale, Foxy Loxy is a cunning villain who uses a number of psychological tactics to drive a farm full of animals into a cave to be eaten. Slightly disturbing and quite political it was a not so subtle message about manipulation of the facts and emotions to gain compliance. The stimulus package, healthcare reform, climate change …. The sky is falling and if we don’t take action right away…. look familar? Watch the video – yeah it’s a cartoon but what a powerful message…..
