Their very existence in safe and happy circumstances has much to do with the American soldier defending that privilege. A small thank you wouldn't hurt. Hollywood consists of mind-numbed robots who have no real feeling for anything beyond their own noses. A pox on them all. They contribute nothing of worth to society. They are dull, brattish children who have no concept of the "greater cause." My prediction: They are fading faster and faster. One day their contributions will be like old wet newspapers in the gutter. Sooner the better. I'm sick to death of them, having everything in a capitalist and democratic system and working overtime fighting everything about that system.
What is the "great cause?"
I could point out that Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general produce one of America's last great exports. The money flowing back from films, music, television etc. is far more than that flowing back from America's heavy industries, like steel.
Also, they're not fading fast, despite what some say. They've adapted and are in the process of adapting again by reconfiguring their industries.
