Debunking "The Story of Stuff" with the truth

Apparently the apocalyptic, doom-and-gloom, sky-is-falling liberal left is at it again with one of their anti-capital, America-hating indoctrination videos again, just like Al Gore and his "An Inconvenient Truth". "The Story of Stuff" is a huge Internet sensation and is now being shown around the country in our tax-funded public schools with the intent of scaring the hell out of the minds of our children about capitalism and America.

Here is something that I hope becomes another Internet sensation. This video comes to us from the good folks at "How the World Works". It's the first part of their installment in order to totally debunk the lies of "The Story of Stuff" with the truth. If any of your kids are being forced to watch "The Story of Stuff" at the public school that they are attending, then perhaps you should show them this rebuttal video too.

Such leftist urban legends are unfortunately dominant in countries like mine.

I have learned nothing of value from your video. Part of the time you seem to be agreeing with her. Part of the time you are you are not providing supported evidence with true connection to her statements, and at times it seems that you are suggesting that people don't matter as much as the corporation.
Truly, sir, you are an idiot. as are glen, rush, and shawn.

Actually, "Anonymous", if you want to properly insult these fine men, it's Glenn, Rush, and Sean. You could at least get their names right. If you're going to be a tool, be a proper one.

To the OP: I'd like to reiterate Manoliscus, thanks for sharing. I enjoyed the videos. :)

I forgot bill in my list of right wing whack jobs. They may be fine men but my belief is that their views are skewed. As who ever reads my posts may believe that my beliefs are skewed. My first post was my initial reaction. I apologize for calling stormin an Idiot based on one video.

I have a class where the Professor showed this crap as fact. I'm so glad I found your rebuttal I'm taking notes and writing a paper this weekend to undo his left wing stuff. Thank you again you did a great job of point by point .

@ monty ... don't give me to much credit. the videos were actually done at another blog and i just highlighted them on mine. good luck on your paper.

This "critique" is executed Just as poorly as the original documentary is. To argue efficiency and price counter the original argument is ridiculous. Saying it used to take whole buildings to make a calculator doesn't mean anything; because now that they are small, they are widely accessible. The materials used to produce small calculators for every household and business would be FAR more than the amount to produce one extremely large calculator. Additionally, to say prices regulate the supply of resources doesn't change the fact that there are a finite amount of resources and we are depleting them.

Although the original documentary is poorly executed and overly leftist, it would have been better to constructively critique the documentary, since in reality the concept holds true. Fighting the claims documentary every step of the way is senseless, because the purpose of the video makes sense. Its basic economics.

She is still right in the end it's better to use less than it is to figure out better ways to bury more. Why are conservatives so hell bent on ruining the planet. You say fuck the environment but the environment is where you live and you are part of it whether you want to believe it or not. Your probably a creationist fucktard as well

Is this the only rebuttle? because the information on this does not take into consideration the fact that during the roman empire the resources mined were being mined for about 5 million people plus some of the other one billion of the worlds population at that time We are now mining resources for an estimated 6.4 Billion with an expected 3 billion added more people by 2050.
The earths crsut has 8 major elements Iron 32.4%, Oxygen 29.9%, Silicon 15.5%, Magnesium 14.5%, Sulfur 2.1% Nickel 2.0%, Calcium 1.6% and Aluminum 1.3% the rest only makes up .7%. underlying the crust is plastic lithosphere, and below that is molten athenosphere. these contain the molten form of thes e elements before they cool at the surface where they are mineable. so these extra resources we just need to learn how to utilize is a fabrication of the highest calibur. Rag on my spelling if you must, but that is not really what this is about is it?!
