Business. Nonfiction. HTML:

"Disney is so good at being good that it manifests an evil; so uniformly efficient and courteous, so dependably clean and conscientious, so unfailingly entertaining that it's unreal, and therefore is an agent of pure wickedness. . . . Disney isn't in the business of exploiting Nature so much as striving to improve upon it, constantly fine-tuning God's work."
--from TEAM RODENT

TEAM RODENT
How Disney Devours America

"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."

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Carl Hiaasen's Bad Monkey.

Only Carl Hiaasen, a native Floridian, could expose the hijinx of the world's most famous rat (I mean mouse). Disney seems to be a governmental entity with more power than some third world nations. ( )

There's a bit of an Alien vs. Predator aspect, with old Florida biting Disney back, but in light of the various DeSantis shenanigans of the last several years, this feels endearingly quaint. Hiaasen, completely reasonably, could never have predicted Republicans taking the side of a culture war over capitalism and free-market principals.

It you want a quick catalogue of some of Disney's dastardly Florida antics up through Michael Eisner's reign atop that company, you're not going to find a better one, and Hiaasen is a hell of a writer, making everything lively and somewhat funny in spite of how grim some of the stories are. ( )

A funny little book about the authors totally dislike of everything Disney and how even back in 1998 the company was taking over everything and making it Disney like.
The deal Disney signed with the state of Florida was so one sided it will likely go down in history as the dumbest decision by a state ever. ( )

I know Disney is a little evil, but I still love going to Disney World. I'm apparently not above being emotionally manipulated by a large corporation. ( )
