I don't see anything wrong with movies and television bringing up social issues. I've watched quite a bit of Golden Girls (yes, the show is hilarious) and for it's time it brought up quite a few controversial topics. It's a good way to bring things into the public eyes. Or in Star Trek, when they had the first interracial kiss on television.

And really, is that such a bad idea to put into children's heads anyways? I mean Sesame Street has been trying to teach kids to be a good person, respect your elders, and so on through the means of entertainment for years! Just about all children's entertainment had some kind of a message that they are trying to sneak in while the kids think they are just having fun. I do not see how these movies are any different.
Oh, come on. the movies I mentioned clearly had an agenda. Big Bad evil company looking for resources, burning down forests to get it, scarring the landscape of a planet, and wrongly portraying natives that kill their employees as ferocious, primitive peoples? That's James Cameron's Avatar, and that clearly has an agenda. Avatar was pretty much Ferngully on steriods.

Actually, it is. Companies and other entities which "scar" the landscape provide us with many things we take for granted. Most of the houses nowadays heavily rely on lumber. The ones made out of stones or brick need the resources to be taken from the earth, usually they come from quarries. Your government's official buildings are probably made out of marble or some other stone that needs to be taken from quarries. No matter how you look at it, the positions shown in the movie are all one-sided, and all portray a heavily-propagandized view of how natural resources are taken from the earth. They conveniently ignore the fact that the harnessing of natural resources are a key part of human life. As for Arrietty, "borrowers"? Really? Taking things that they won't miss? That's called stealing, or in this case "borrowing without asking." That's quite different from trying to teach kids to respect one's elders. You can't compare them.
