Jim Henson struck me as a very liberal guy. He allowed blacks, gays, Jews, and weirdos into his organization and accepted pretty much everyone with open arms. He started a "Being Green" campaign, long before his death. He wanted to bring world peace. Why are these bad things? As for the whole "attack on corporations" thing, well... I always find it ironic when Hollywood does that sort of thing, seeing as how all Hollywood movies are funded by massive corporations. Either way, it's not an attempt to brainwash kids. There's nothing sinister about it. I consider marketing toys and crappy video games to children to be more evil than anything the Muppets are doing.
