Hollywood is always re-inventing.

But before you knock it, remember that Holywood has spread, more than anything or anyone else, the essence of America.

And Hollywood films consistently run a profit, not a deficit, in US trade. No one else can say that.

They have perhaps in the past, thus my reference to old movies. Nowadays they spread something else entirely.

Interesting - by the way, has anyone heard protest and anger over the profits of film and recording industries? Seems to me that these groups of businesses are never included under the term "Bad Corporations."

Bullshit. In Hollywood's America:

  1. Corporations are always evil.
  2. The government exists to murder people, but is the only place to turn in times of distress.
  3. Soldiers are mindless, robotic brutes or drooling, Neanderthal sadists.
  4. Scientists and engineers are always mad, and never make anything good or useful.
  5. Businessmen are always amoral and greedy.
  6. Any overtly religious character is a cardboard cutout of Elmer Gantry
  7. Government agents murder citizens to hide their previous crimes every day
  8. Southerners and country people: all bad, inbred, evil racist hicks. Northerners and city people: saints.
  9. Lawyers and journalists, parasitic professions that live by tearing down their betters, are always good guys.
  10. The criminal is always the rich white guy (spend a day in a criminal court anywhere in the USA. Take notes. Then go over the last ten movies you saw with a bad guy).
  11. Kids are always smarter than adults (in their own Hollywood families, after the parents' lifetime of drug worship, this may be true).
  12. The highest good is always whatever feels best in the here-and-now.
  13. The only error you can make with sex is to pass it up.
  14. Muslims are always the victims of evil.
  15. Christians are always the perpetrators of evil.

Hollywood presents a nihilistic and inverted view of the real world. Its values are corrosive to civil society; it seethes with hatred of all that is good, decent and productive, and trumpets a giddy fanfare to all that is evil and damaging.

You think this is the essence of America?

But hey, they make a profit.

d.o.l.
