The infantization of America

Apparently, folks in the Bookwormroom are not the only ones concerned about all of us being turned into children.  Check out this Wizbang discussion of WALL-E and the linked interview with Andrew Stanton.  I love the closing line of the quote from the Stanton interview: “I was trying to make humanity big babies because there was no reason for them to grow up anymore.”  The movie apparently takes a different slant, especially as to the cause of the problem, but maybe this is another reason America is becoming so soft.
