To: Aussie Dasher
Hollywood has to be reclaimed. At one time, movies were the very best representatives of the US. People were introduced to our culture by wholesome, all American stories that showed the very best of our society and reflected the ultimate American characteristic, the belief in a happy ending.
Kids would go to the movies and learned manners, ethics, honesty and other wonderful traits by watching. They learned that right triumphs over evil.
Today, kids see that evil is everywhere and that the bad guy has "redeeming qualities" and end up with the audience rooting for a guy with no values, a filthy mouth, and morals of an ally cat.

Thanks for expressing well, what I have been struggling to say on this thread.
Yes, yes, yes...those were the good old days. But, we've crossed so many lines now that we may not ever be able to return.
My heart aches for that lost America.
