Toy Story

In a new book, Christopher Jamison, a prominent Catholic cleric in England, has become a vocal critic of Disney and what he sees as the company's encouragement of materialism in children. While Jamison says that the Disney movies often have a moral message of good triumphing over evil, the products that go along with the movies encourage children to think that material objects will give them happiness and a place in the Disney world. Jamison says: "Where once morality and meaning were available as part of our free cultural inheritance, now corporations sell them to us as products." [Telegraph]
