This is a cheap "guilt by association" tactic. As usual, you work it into the argument without stopping to tell us what you think should be done on the issue. You're too busy trying to lay a "right wing if he does, right wing if he doesn't" double bind.

I basically take the UNESCO line on this issue. Are UNESCO right wing populists too? Would it be less right wing to say "Yay Hollywood! BLAM BLAM BLAM! And by the way, cut the subsidies to those artist scrounger types! And stop translating foreign muck!"

Easy. Give people good and fair access to education, so that they are less likely to like crap, wherever it comes from. If then they still favour hollywood (apparently a monolithic institution, and bad bad bad), then so be it. Maybe one then needs to look harder at the cultural factors that make it so popular.

der.

Which surely are economic instruments?

Cultural as in: why is it that Hollywood is good at adressing the dreams. hopes, feelings of so many people? Because of the economic power of the studios?

der.
