Is the kid really being wronged? Did he work for the money to buy the food? Did he go to the store and purchase it himself? Did he prepare the meal? No, more likely than not his parents did all these things, the very people he's turning against.
Remember, this is being targeted towards children and they react differently to these kinds of things than adults. I'm not saying that kids are going to be truing in their parents over a few bites of food, but think about it. What if I just don't like my Mom's new boyfriend? Maybe I can make him go away, for a long time.

Has there been an increase of parents being arrested because their kids called the police on them? In fact, has any parent been arrested by the hands of their children? Show us some reports, articles, statistics, something. The real question is, how seriously do little kids take Kraft Mac & Cheese commercials? Would they risk losing their parents over it?

I might agree more if dad was stealing from the government, but it's the kid being wronged in the commercial; there's certainly a bit of subliminal there but it may be more you connecting it.
We at ats are in the special place to make these connections more often whether intended or not because of our constant exposure to these topics.

It's not just the Kraft commercials. There s a load of commercials that are basically trying to empower children to influence their parents in a disturbing way. Remember the toyota commercial where the kid is ashamed to ride in mommy and daddy's old minivan, so he told them to buy a 'cool' vehicle for him to be seen in? Many commercials send a message that empowers kids, tweens, and teens to influence the household income by providing them everything necessary to avoid peer pressure. We call it consumerism. Watch commercials closely as to how they push consumerism, the 'princess syndrome', and so forth. You will also notice the immasculation of men, over the top feminism, unnecessary debt mechanisms, 'economic globalism', etc. It pretty much fits into the social engineering paradigm.
An ominous new development within the HJ was the appearance of HJ-Streifendienst (Patrol Force) units functioning as internal political police, maintaining order at meetings, ferreting out disloyal members, and denouncing anyone who criticized Hitler or Nazism including, in a few cases, their own parents.
One case involved a teenager named Walter Hess who turned in his father for calling Hitler a crazed maniac. His father was then hauled off to Dachau under Schutzhaft (protective custody). For setting such an example, Hess was promoted to a higher rank within the HJ.
