What a Visit to Disney World Reveals About America

From a New York Times column by Ross Douthat headlined “What a Visit to Disney World Reveals About America”:

Walt Disney World is back in the culture-war news this week, thanks to Gov. Ron DeSantis’s appointment of a new board, filled with his ideological allies, to oversee infrastructure in Disney’s Florida real estate empire. As it happens, I’m now a certified expert on Disney World, as my wife and I recently took our children there for the first time, and let me tell you, there’s a lot to say about the place. Our several days there were intense enough that I could probably get multiple newsletters out of the experience, but I’ll just try to cram a bunch of ideas into this one, much the way I packed my kids into roller coaster cars and sent them hurtling away.
