Okay, dude, usually your videos are great, but you really missed the mark with this one. Blaming consumers for shitty corporate practices is the most asinine thing you could have done. Consumer side activism does *not* work and it's ridiculous for you to imply that it does. Corporations hold the vast majority of power in our society, and they should be held responsible for their actions *by the government* (they just aren't though because corporations have a huge influence on politicians).

Wait, isn't smog created by industrial waste? If no one is living outside Thneedville, doesn't it seem pretty safe to say that that industrial waste is produced by Thneedville's industry itself? So while Thneedville may be kind of nice for its inhabitants, it's at the cost of making the entire rest of the world uninhabitable, which seems pretty hard to defend. Also, didn't the How Bad Can I Be song show a lot of instances of the Onceler trying to greenwash his product, falsely claiming it was A-ok environment-wise? I'm not sure how much information was available to the consumers to allow them to refute those claims, so it can at least be said that the enablement wasn't one-way. Though really, this is kind of bringing me back to the state of despair the heat wave got me in - just as the horrible atmosphere from the overlogged environment drove the Thneedvillers to turn to O'Hare's polluting air-filtering technology to make an air dome, the out-of-wack temperatures that modern industry created will likely drive people to turn to temperature-altering technology like air conditioners, which of course contribute to the messed-up climate. It sometimes seems there's no way out of this loop of destruction apart from a bleach cocktail.

Everyone works for O'Hare right?.... Since everyone works for O'Hare and everyone is buying his artificial air, then if will be economically bad for everyone because since they are planting trees and trees make air, then w No one would buy O'Hare's artificial air, since no one would buy his air then he doesn't make money, if he doesn't make money then he everyone will have another great depression coming up....

While I'm writing this comment, I'm 5:27 in the video, so keep that in mind if my point somehow gets contradicted later in the video. In my opinion, the lens of O'Hare having improved the air quality but capitalizing on a basic necessity to do so, slowly finding a way to continue selling air even after the air quality is better really plays into the whole corrupted evil capitalist vibes. So, in a way, O'Hare is a reinforcement of what the original point could've been: left unchecked, corporate entities will become corrupt and we as a society need to hold them accountable or our society will crumble. Excuse me while I just go completely edit the movie script and storyline to sell this main point-

I had mixed feelings about both the Once-ler and O'Hare when I first saw this remake. Still, they were my two most favourite characters. The characters I didn't have mixed feelings about were the protagonists. To me, both Ted and Audrey, as well as the rest of the people in the town, were complete no-brainers and, thus, rather unlikeable. At the first moment, I wasn't sure where could such an instant and intense disliking come from. And then I realised that they just reminded me of all those people around me that would buy cheap and useless clothes, have their drinks with plastic straws, get a new bottle of water each day, instead of buying a reusable one... I think you get my point. Even when they are made aware of the impact of their actions, consumeristic minds would still choose convenience over being responsible to the best of their abilities toward our planet. It's born as much from short-sightedness, stupidity and laziness, as it is from pure egoism. After all, they probably won't live long enough to witness the monstrous consequences of their own actions and they lack the empathy necessary to care about the people and creatures that are suffering now and will be suffering in the future.

I think it's fair to say that the blame is equally distributed between the businesses and the consumers. But there's also something to be said about how businesses are the experts on what they're selling. They do have the burden of responsability on their own practices. I don't have the time and resources to run an investigation on every product I buy (and they want it that way).

I find it amusing you conclude the video by saying they missed this meaning; this seems to me to have very intentionally been their corruption of the meaning. To deflect responsibility onto the consumer for unethical business practices they are constantly dissuaded from thinking about only serves whom? Cui bono? Who walks away having once again turned the proles against each other rather than taking any responsibility for the actions and strategies they actually live by? The exact elitist corporate class Illumination has made very clear it is an extension of. 100 corporations cause something like 71% of global emissions. The fault is not on the consumer (you, me, the rest of us forced to consume unethically) who they constantly brainwash ignorance of these facts into. Turn on the television. Pay attention to who sponsors your favourite programmes and how often their money goes back to petroleum. Plastics, pharmaceuticals, the military industrial complex (which has been utilised in recent decades to explicitly secure oil), the list goes on and on. The sympathy this corrupted Lorax film evokes from MatPat toward the Capitalists is intentional, designed to deflect responsibility onto the consumption their means of exploitation necessitates and rewards. Sad to see Matt completely miss the actual point of the idea he was trying to engage with.

6:32 MatPat I'm gonna be straight up with you. My wife and 5 month old daughter need bottled water (refilling those 5 gallons) where we live. Why? Because our house is old and the mid 90s earthquake here caused the well to such more arsenic. We can't afford the filters for arsenic, so we refill our jugs with filtered water from another area not affected by the earthquake. Not slamming on you for the point you made, just giving you another snippet of info

I have seen some comments regarding the unused song "Biggering" and how it disproves Matpat's point. I would disagree. The movie we got protrays the Once-ler as an entreprenuer who was overtaken by greed and blindly neglected the destruction of the valley. The original vission of the Once-ler would be an entreprenuer who knowingly destroyed the land over his pride and greed for money. I would argue no matter what version of the Once-ler is interpreted doesn't take from the point that consumers allowed for his business to thrive, and despite his objectively incompetent practice of using more resources than producing still shows that whether intentionally or not the Once-ler was allowed to continue. Had the consumer cared for the destruction his business had brought the consumer could essentially vote against it by not buying his product. This could have saved the valley. Essentially the consumer allows for the destruction of the forest no matter the intentions of the Once-ler.

Well, i cant really say anything wrong here. But there is a thing i find wrong, BUT it’s in the movie itself. You see, the people in Lorax were stupid and desperate enough, that they wanted BOTTLED AIR!!! And as i was laughing my insanity out, i got the main teachings that i find really…delighting? 1. Obviously; Plant trees! It’s for our sake! 2. Don’t be stupid and get out of your comfort zone. Be different, be strong (psychologically and emotionally) and mostly reasonable. If i got this right for some if not most of you, ya know what to do. I just wanted to make a few points about the movie.
