Worshipping false memories painted on prettily, and fake cartoons of cheap nostalgias. Didn't work. Today that Disneyland still stands but it is a tragically degenerate neighborhood. See for example "Outside Disneyland's Door Is Wicked Reality : Crime: For 4,000 residents who live in an apartment ghetto behind the Disneyland Hotel, the innocence and escapism of the Magic Kingdom are a million miles away." October 23, 1989, LA TIMES Or: "Cinderella is homeless, Ariel ‘can’t afford to live on land’: Disney under fire for pay" 17 Jul 2017, The Guardian

Walt missed a few beats, G-d, Truth and Compassion was missing in it all. But "Disneyland is your land", he was right. He was a genius, his creations have many virtues, or rather tell some many virtuous tales. But where is G-d?

Imagination and speech are powerful, powerful things we humans wield.
