You make a very important observation regarding how art is part of the fabric of any culture. It has a profound impact the creators and consumers of culture.
We always use the phrase “Is it art imitating life, or life imitating art?” It should be broaden and rephrased to “Does culture imitate life, or life imitate culture?”
Our culture in general, along with the education system, where conservatives must refocus our energy going forward. That is how the left has taken over this country.
While we were winning elections off-and-on in the 60s and 70s, and during the Reagan Revolution, the left were laying the foundations for future success in the media, education system, arts, Hollywood, etc.
America has been brainwashed now into a center-left country. That’s how it was done.
