    We must agree to differ Bruce, and media studies was my first BA. It is my perception is that the US movie machine has a normative conditioning function. The intention is to spread a specific attitude around the globe. Where this is resisted due to pre-existing memetic, or cultural codes, the centre of resistance is denounced as being 'un-american'. In the past, as it is now, if this 'un-american' sentiment is bad for usanian domination of culture (and business) active and/or covert intervention is deemed to be necessary.
