It's a Mickey Mouse World, isn't it? A Mickey Mouse world is one in which people are overloaded with autocratic & bureaucratic nonsense/direction to the point where if something cute or funny is NOT made of it we will at the very least become depressed.

General Psychology   
Robert C. Gates      

New THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.

- Excerpt from "The Crisis" a pamphlet by Thomas Paine, 1776.
