In the television show
My long-time readers know that I do not believe that people are born naturally nice or good. Indeed I’ve written before about the fact that when Anne Frank, in her last diary entry before being taken to Auschwitz, said that she believes all people are really good at heart, or something like that, she was whistling in the dark. People are not naturally good. They have to be taught to be good.
Fortunately, most people in America are still taught to be good. Indeed, at Disneyland, being good is corporate policy. Whatever else Disney may do in terms of movies and TV shows, it knows how to make sure that Disneyland is always “the happiest place on earth.” The employees smile, they are helpful, the facilities are immaculate, and everything runs very, very well. It is of course a testament to the wonders of the free market, since this is a perfect way both to keep and grow a paying customer base, but that’s not where I’m going in this post.
