We all know what the moral to The Lorax is, right? Respect the environment and conservation. Well guess what, you're WRONG! At least, you are wrong if we are talking about the 2012 movie version of The Lorax. You see, that movie made some... interesting changes to the story we all know and love. Changes that kind of ruin that message. In fact, it almost turns it on it's head and says the opposite. Yet, the movie STILL claims to be about environmentalism. Get ready, I am about to expose all of the LIES of The Lorax movie!

    There's a line in the 1972 version that makes a point of how long it takes a tree to grow, that the Oncler is doing it all too fast. There's no ambiguity there, just his greed. Illumination's is messy in comparison.

    This seems like a pretty bad take overall. Not everyone can just vote with their dollar when they aren’t completely informed, if the company(ies) have almost complete control of the market, and if they rely on that product
    The customers just wanted the thenes. The Onceler should have listened to the Lorax and have been sustainable. It’s stupid and malicious.
    Money does corrupt in many cases.
    While some customers can make a sign and cite with their dollar, most of the time it doesn’t work on a large scale.
    Most people aren’t informed about the company’s inner workings and if they are doing harm.
    That’s what regulations are for.

      I believe that he was referring to tap water. Germany is a great example of this. Tap water is the safest, most regulated substance in the country, but due to cultural reasons, which relate back to the East German communist regime of the Cold War, most Germans buy bottled water instead.

    Oh, It's up to the consumer! despite the fact that most market is either a monopoly or a oligarchy, mean that the consumer either has no choice, or has to choose between equally bad companies.
    Also companies lies about their ethical practices. You will literally never a company admitting to use child labour for example. The only way for a consumer to know whether the product their buying is ethically produces, is for them to find out a company's suppliers, which I remind you, is not always public information.

    It is important to keep in mind that while in the movie, the consumers are largely at fault, in the real world, unless you have money, you really don't have a choice. Like,, I need food and clothes and things, and I would love to make sure everything I consume is ethically sourced but I just can't afford it because half of my income is rent. I know I'm not the first one to point this out here, but I think it is really important that companies do hold a lot of power here

    Disagree :) Both O'Hare and the Once-ler are immoral and environmentally irresponsible. The fact that they both had "good business" does not make them "good guys" because they put their needs before others (trees, the environment, the animals). They need to be ethical businesses, so yes, they're the villains.

    In the original 1972 adaptation of The Lorax, the Once-ler tells the Lorax that if he shuts down production of the Thneed factories which are destroying the Truffula trees, it will put hundreds of workers and family members out of a job and be detrimental to the economy. Even the Lorax concedes that this would be too drastic a solution

    This is why we will die to climate change, not because we couldn't stop it from happening but because we demanded that it happen.
    So unless you can convince everyone to buy an electric car solar panels and batteries for the house and to go vegan.. well, if you think 2020 was bad you ain't said nothing yet. Because the next three decades will be just like it, the first third you don't see much of anything, The second third you see all the horrors and what is to come, and then the last it all comes and you're not ready.

    I absolutely fucking hate the abortion that was the 2012 Lorax movie. They might as well have just filmed the production team taking turns literally shitting on Ted Geisel's grave because that's what the movie did figuratively.
