An old acquaintance of mine responds to Annie Leonard (creator of the very bad Story of Stuff).
I’m not chiming in on the particulars. It is pretty clear to me that responding second to videos like this, like the Story of Stuff, like Capitalism a Love Story and the dozens and dozens of other hack jobs is not getting anyone anywhere. It is also pretty clear to me that had Art put this together first, it would still not have nearly the influence of Ms. Leonard’s pieces.
On a related note, does anyone know how these videos are made? If I had some reasonable knowledge of how to do it, I would seriously dedicate a lot a time to making them – if for the only reason that I think they could aid in my teaching.
