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.

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.
