Do you know what your child is watching?

This anti-capitalist video "has become a sleeper hit in classrooms across the nation," The New York Times reports.

Thanks for sharing this. Don't misattribute my intentions or background as I think you'd find I share your philosophy 99% of the time, but there's a lot of truth in this production, especially from about the 10 minute mark to 17:45. Perhaps you didn't make it that far - some of the initial stuff is standard boilerplate liberalism and would turn a lot of conservatives off. I'm not sure it is anti-capitalist - it sure isn't pro-capitalist, but I think we've got to look at our consumption at the governmental and societal levels and seek ways to change the system. From one homeschooling Dad to another, surely you've seen Veggie Tale's Madame Blueberry and her trips to StuffMart. I think that's the point this video is trying to make. Tim Snider
