"The definite social relation between men themselves... assumes here, for them, the fantastic form of a relation between things." -Karl Marx, Capital, Volume 1
Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is the most pervasive and effective propaganda film in the American capitalist culture, the fantasy of a poor proletarian child transforming his family's social situation via blind consumerism.
Within minutes of the film's opening, it launches into a musical number about the power of chocolate to alleviate all working-class woes ("The Candy Man"). We learn that Charlie comes from a poor, struggling family, managing to deal with his poverty only by buying commodities from the secretive Willie Wonka Corporation. Despite the terrible condition of his house and the untreated sickness of his aging grandparents, all Charlie wants out of life is to win a Golden Ticket and receive a lifetime supply of chocolate.
When Charlie wins his prize, he receives a tour of the factory. The film practically beats the benevolence of the bourgeoisie over the viewer's head when, upon learning of the opportunity to tour the Willie Wonka Headquarters, Charlie's grandfather spontaneously begins walking again after years of invalidity. When they arrive at the factory, we learn that the commodities Charlie has been buying from this corporation are produced by the sweat and tears of unpaid foreign laborers who work overtime instructing the "morality" of their masters to impressionable children. This fact is treated as perfectly acceptable and the workers are not given so much as individual names.
In the climax of the film, Charlie is nearly sent home without the chocolate he desires when CEO Willie Wonka learns that he took a small amount of "Wonka's" commodities for himself. Charlie redeems himself, however, by refusing to help Wonka's struggling competitor obtain his trade secrets. Wonka makes Charlie his heir, furthering the myth of "upward mobility" in the popular culture.
In short, this film is commodity fetish pornography designed to keep the working man down, and therefore dangerous to the Revolution.
