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!

You could also say the bad guy in these situations would be the one in charge of education in the first place, not knowing that...trees are actually a necessity. You could say Onesler is stupid so it's not his fault, he's not the bad guy. That doesn't exactly work when the consumer themselves don't really understand the risks either. So if everyone's stupid, then you can't say that the Onesler is scott free for being stupid, but the consumers who...are being pretty stupid, aren't being treated the same way. So if it's all just stupidity all around, then who is the real bad guy?

Video Summary: So the story about saving the environment, the pitfalls of capitalism and anti consumerism was actually about how consumers will put up with destroying the environment and late stage capitalism as long as they get what they want. The consumer is the bad guy. It's a really dumb movie and butchered the message. The fact this theory has legs proves it. Illumination made a movie blaming consumers for inequality and pollution. What a joke

The onceler is also to blame tho not just the consumers. Sure, they patronized his business, but he was the one firsthand was able to see its disastrous effects on the environment. He could've stopped the business or found an alternative. It all comes down as to where his best interests lie and his priorities

How can the consumer be the bad guy but the corporate business person cannot be the bad guy so technically they both the bad guys the consumer and the corporate person film Theory seem to miss something yeah well that's kind of what went down in the book that's based off of the Dr Seuss book and the trees didn't get replaced in the book either even though the person who trapped down all the trees had a few seeds to grow trees just like in the movie it's amazing how he did include that into his Theory on film Theory in the book I've noticed that there's no bad guy in the book The Lorax just like the movie because the only thing the bad guys guilty for in the book is just not thinking things through just like the movie in The Lorax from 2012 how did he miss this so I'm confused what's the difference other than adding an hour to the film at least an hour to the film is it an hour or two hours.

Saying others don’t understand and then not understanding. He’s the villain because he makes money by neglecting and as he said increasing “the smog more smog in the air the more they will buy”. So maybe the cutting down trees was just stupidity. But in that one line he confirms he wishes to make it worse to make more. And that was before he started selling them when he thought it was dumb therefore it wasn’t us and he was the true villain but ITS JUST A THEORY A FILM THEORY

Are the citizens of Thneedville only able to survive deforestation and climate change because they bought their way to survival, because their descendants were the extremely rich 1% in America today? Is this why Thneedville seems to be the only remaining piece of human civilization, made up of supreme living conditions and greed? Am I on to something, or do I just need to go to bed? P.S. We need to talk about inbreeding.

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.
