That raises a lot of questions, all of them with horrifying answers.
Sora, on how Dr. Finklestein manages to acquire a heart with a lock on it, Kingdom Hearts The Short And Honest Version (Chapter 17)

"We should probably drop the word "Monster" from the title since you usually just kill blameless wildlife that only attacks because you're invading its' territory or because you just pushed a sharpened stick through the ear of its' favourite child, But I guess calling it Hunter/Gatherer of Innocent Young Dinosaurs Pathetically Mewling Their Last as The Memory of Their Mother's Warmth Drifts away to Be Replaced by the Unforgiving Coldness of— Oh, fuck it.

Think about how many laws have to not exist in that universe for this show to happen. It's apparently legal for a person or corporation to imprison a person, as long as you feed him. It's legal to film and record someone without his knowledge. It's legal to defraud a person out of literally every possible thing he could have in his life, from a real marriage to a real career. If it can be done to Truman, it can be done to anyone, including you. It's as much an "anything goes" society as The Road Warrior.

"When I was a lad I didn't know what Frollo was singing. And now that I'm grown, I'm like 'AAAAHHHH! Frollo is a perv!'"
