Take back popular culture

I’ve written several times at this blog about the need to take back popular culture and make it more consistent with American values.  (Indeed, I think every conservative blogger has written the same thing.)  This Englishman, speaking of the disaster of British multiculturalism, perfectly articulates why a country must celebrate its own values:

For Murray, multiculturalism is a moral vacuum, and “into a moral vacuum always bad things creep.”

The Eton and Oxford educated Murray quotes Saul Bellow in his introduction to The Closing of the American Mind: “When public morality becomes a ghost town, it’s a place into which anyone can ride and declare himself sheriff.”

“Once so-called multicultural societies decided that they didn’t have a locus, that they didn’t have a center of gravity, anyone could ride in and teach the most pernicious things,” Murray expounds. “It didn’t matter. It was just another point of view.

“It’s an extraordinary situation. We allow absolutely anything. This is the reason the British police used not to investigate certain types of killing, like honor killings. This is a community matter, they’d say. Police have admitted that now. This is why tens of thousands of women from certain communities have been genitally mutilated. We have made ourselves entirely relative and it’s time to change that.”

If you believe that Hollywood is marketing values antithetical to America, you can finally do something about it:  You can become a film producer, at least sort of.  Find out how here:

And a teeny, little bleg, so that I too can take advantage of this great opportunity, without imposing on my liberal husband’s hard earned wages:

    Treating this like an open post…
     
    If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s pretty interesting.

    This is an excellent strategy. Grassroots, funded based upon a stable business model, one that is self-regenerating even.
     
    It’s pointless trying to get people to “change their mind”. Propaganda is the key and it has always been the key.
     
    Read Neo-Neocon about her experiences with her “moderate” friends and how they, after having taken the bait on lies about Sarah Palin, won’t change their minds. It is pointless to waste valuable time and resources on them. How did they get their minds changed? By feelings and lies. We will change their minds by similar methods. You can even drop out the lies entirely, if you can. After all, only moral midgets and the moron brigade think propaganda is synonymous with lying. That’s how they got duped in the first place.
     
    Advertisement is not long enough to “change people’s mind”. All advertisement can do is to spark people’s interest and give them a positive impression of a certain product. And that is all that is needed. For after all, Starbucks was not made what it is because it continually attempted to convince people that their coffee was better. They convinced people by word of mouth, by convincing neighbors who talked and bought.
     
    I like Japanese anime because for some genres, there is a very strong sanity component. By that I mean the family structure isn’t dysfunctional. It is actually very functional. Even in horror movies, we have strong bonds of love between mother and child, even in cases of divorce. Their strong point, however, is the normal family plus school life.
     
    Btw, it is a great explanation of how Hollywood works and how Hollywood is now making movies for the world and marketing it in America.

    I just saw a preview at the cinema today for a new George Clooney movie.  He plays an assassin from the USA, in Europe, and is tired of killing and the assassin game, but takes on one last job.  Sick of it all, right at the end of the preview – the emotional payoff of the trailer to get you to “want to see the movie”,  Clooney’s character tells a priest, “”I don’t think God’s very interested in me, Father.”

    The name of this movie?

    “The American”

    Say what???   Think about it.

    I weakened and saw the movie Inception today (where I encountered the trailer I mentioned above).  A week ago I commented in a post that I wouldn’t see the movie, because of the on-camera interview of two of the supporting actors in the movie, Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, in which she trashed Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney and disrespected our half of America, and he agreed with her.
     
    I decided Christopher Nolan as director was far more important to me than the snide but irrelevant Ms. Page, so I saw it.  (btw, I recommend it as mind-bending sci-fi, and I note it is thoroughly apolitical, which is refreshing when most movies these days insult my beliefs.  Maybe the densest, most convoluted and intricately plotted movie I’ve ever seen.  At two-plus hours in which it demands you pay very close attention throughout, it was kind of exhausting.  I think I admire the movie *greatly*… but I’m not sure I *like* it…)
     
    In a movie as interesting and absorbing as this one, I found I totally forgot that some of the actors were people with opinions I really disliked.  I was so caught up in it – trying to hang in there and keep up with the entire intellectual ride – I forgot all about them until afterward.  So despite the actors’ Hollywoodish anti-conservative bent, it worked very well for me.

    Actors are so typically stupid and below me in terms of social awareness, philosophical comprehension, H2H skills, and intelligence/wisdom that I just ignore what they say and treat it as entertainment. Cause that is all it is.

    Actors pretend to be certain people in movies. And they pretend to know what is happening in the real world. It’s all the same to me.
