Universal Studios is releasing “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax” on March 2 to theaters throughout the U.S. Partnering with Universal is the EPA, which is using Lorax to teach children how to be green and to fight rampant industrialism (capitalism, the engine of progress).
The Lorax character is a creature who “speaks for the trees” and fights against the capitalist system. How cute.
Comcast Corp., which owns Universal, is also planning “planet-saving” activities like planting trees and conserving energy.

The EPA will be using Lorax to promote low-power appliances that carry the Energy Star label; Hilton’s DoubleTree hotel is also sponsoring a trip for four for eco-tourism to Costa Rica.
IHOP has also joined the green propaganda band wagon by producing a Seussian breakfast of green-colored eggs and ham.
EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson is overjoyed by this propaganda blitz against our children. According to Jackson, “It’s important to connect these dots between energy savings and efficiency and a cleaner environment,” she said in a statement sent to The Associated Press. “Bringing together the Lorax and Energy Star is a great venue for doing that.” She’s clearly a very busy anti-capitalist woman. It takes a lot of work to take down industrialized civilization in only four years. Imagine what she can do with another four!
Be sure to keep your children from seeing this EPA-endorsed anti-capitalist movie.
