What Disney Wasn’t

Hat-tip to Mr. Ryan Baham.

Contemplate, if you will, the Corporate Shill-ery of Walt Disney. But then also how Orlando/Kissimmee is everything Disney espoused as inefficient and – he said it – “un-American”. How Epcot was supposed to serve as the model of the future – in many ways what reified as the efficiency of The Great Socialist Goliath (the EU). And the United States took a darker turn, embracing cheap carbon fuels, and look at how wrong we’ve gone. Also, its just cool to see how ambitious Disney was and how unambitious Disney World seems today. In many ways, this is a story about Florida’s government. Contemplate.

Sorry W.

We fucked up.
