Main Street - Disneyland

To be clear about what sincerity  is - let's look at what is possibly the exact antithesis. We all know this place. It's  part of our cultural psyche much like macaroni and cheese. It presents a welcoming facade of sincerity while behind the scenes children in third world countries work in sweat-shop conditions producing stuffed Mickey Mouse dolls for our own  little darlings. Everyone here smiles. Everyone is glad to see you. Many of them make pretty good money. Life is perfect, a bowl of cherries and a bouquet of flowers sprinkled with magic fairy dust. We walk open mouthed and dazzled through the gift mall before we are allowed to ride the Tea Cups.

Evaluation: You need to ask? Really?
