The offspring of capitalism. American culture conquers the world

One of the most dangerous types of American expansion is not military or even economic, but cultural. Modern mass culture is based on the American "core" and gradually covers the whole world, destroying national cultures or leveling them to the role of a folk appendage to some universal westernized culture.




What is the basis of American culture?


Unlike European cultures, which have been formed over the centuries on the basis of both ancient culture (Greek and Roman), and Christian cultural traditions, medieval knighthood, American culture is entirely the product of capitalism.

There were cultures of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, Ancient China and Ancient Vietnam, Ancient Russia, reflecting various stages in stories and social development of the countries of the Old World. With American culture, everything turned out differently. Since American society was already forming as capitalist and did not know any other relations, American culture is a completely capitalist culture, devoid of foundation and based on the most important value - the desire for money, big money.

Capitalism is the "salt" of the American national idea. No matter how American politicians and public figures claim that the main value of American society is human rights, freedom of choice, democracy, in fact, its main value is money and only money. All other slogans, ideas, projects and projects are just an instrument for obtaining and saving money, ensuring financial domination and economic dominance.

However, military and economic methods alone cannot dominate the world. And this was perfectly understood by the true owners of America - the financial and industrial elites. It is they, and not the American political leadership, that are the main organizers and beneficiaries of American cultural expansion.

In order to ensure a stable view of the United States as the most advanced country in the world, which deservedly dominates in almost all areas, throughout the twentieth century, American popular culture spread, literally planted in other countries. And along with this culture the notorious American values ​​were planted, which in the new cultural environment had a disorganizing, corrupting effect.

Sociologists, speaking about the cultural modernization of the Third World countries, often pay attention to the fact that in countries that went along the path of blind copying of the American model, local societies decomposed quite quickly, prostitution, drug addiction spread, and young people gravitated to "easy" money and to all methods of obtaining them. The irrepressible cult of consumption is the main component accompanying the planting of American culture.

Cinema is the main weapon of American culture


Since literature and visual arts in the USA were always inferior to European, the dominance of American culture was ensured by cinema. Dealers in the American film industry quickly realized that cinema allows not only to make very big money, but also to impose an American way of life in other countries. Especially if it is bright, spectacular, albeit shallow in content cinema. It is these paintings that are quickly gaining wild popularity among young people and the “base layer” of any society.

In fact, American films do not have the depth that we see in Soviet and Russian, in Italian cinema. But American cinema has always amazed us with spectacle, spectacular movie actors, which overlapped with the simplicity of the storyline. American films are produced in such a way that people with the lowest level of intellectual development can understand them. This, in many respects, ensured the success of American films in export.

The offspring of capitalism. American culture conquers the world


Primary meaning as ideological weapon The United States acquired cinema in the second half of the 20th century - during the Cold War, becoming one of the main means of planting American values ​​in the countries of the Third World and the socialist camp. We can say that American cinema made a certain contribution to the decomposition of the late Soviet and post-Soviet Russian society at the turn of the 1980's - 1990's.

Through watching American films, Soviet people became familiar with American culture and values, and adopted patterns of behavior that were alien to Soviet society and Russian culture. Needless to say, American cinema of the second half of the twentieth century was thoroughly permeated with hatred for the Soviet Union, the socialist system? In fact, these were purely propaganda paintings that found their audience in the USSR and other countries of the socialist camp and made a very big contribution to the formation and spread of anti-Soviet and anti-communist sentiments, especially among young people.

Only for several years at the beginning of the 1990's. American cinema made some adjustments to the image of Russia, paying tribute to the briefly improved Russian-American relations. More precisely, in these years the American leadership still had hope for the complete leveling of Russian political power. Russia was represented as one of the junior partners of the United States, along with other countries of Eastern Europe.

For example, in the film “Red Heat” (1988), a Soviet policeman arrives in the United States to fight the Russian mafia together with his American colleagues. Many are familiar with the legendary Police Academy: Mission in Moscow, in which American law enforcement officers come to Russia to exchange experiences, and various funny stories happen to them. These films were designed to slightly change the perception of Russians by the American audience in favor of the changes taking place in the political relations between the countries.



In the 1990s, the place of the main enemy of the United States was taken by some abstract terrorists, international organized crime, the drug mafia, whose representatives personified “world evil” in American films of that time. But already in the second half of the 1990's, the situation began to change, and from the beginning of the 2000's. Russia has once again taken the usual place of the “evil empire” in American popular culture, including in cinema.

Internet communication and a new page in the spread of American culture


Now the United States is planting its cultural values ​​through Internet technologies. Although the advantages of the Internet today are enjoyed by a wide variety of forces, right down to Islamic fundamentalists or left and right radicals, it is still American values ​​that are spreading most rapidly through Internet technology and network communication.

The "alternative" political forces simply do not have the resource capabilities that the United States possesses. For example, many complain about “censorship” in Russian social networks, but Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook also uses very strict censorship for any information that does not like the founders and leaders of this large social network.

But it’s not even political censorship. Through Internet technology, American big business is even more successful than before with the help of cinema, it is planting consumer values, while making money on the audience.

During the “Arab Spring” of 2011, social networks became an excellent tool for consolidating protest-minded youth. Subsequently, exactly the same technologies were used in Ukraine during the Euromaidan, now they are used in Russia. And the generation nurtured on American cultural patterns willingly follows those who set the mood today in the Internet space, in social networks.



At the same time, people's consciousness is changing - clip thinking, the preference for virtual connections over real ones, the assimilation of values ​​and behaviors transmitted through social networks - all these factors form a new type of person - a consumer, so beneficial to American capital. Such a person thinks much less, he is much more manageable than a person brought up in traditional culture, absorbing information from books and communication with other people.

Cultural dominance is a new colonization


Spanish journalist Antonio Lorca Siero writes that we are talking about new forms of colonization - and not political or economic, but cultural. It is difficult to disagree with him, since most modern countries have culturally turned into American colonies. Even if the ruling elites of these countries try to emphasize their independence, take some kind of anti-American action, proclaim anti-imperialist slogans, in reality they have already lost. Moreover, they lost the war for the minds - the most serious and most dangerous war of our time.

No talented physicists, no brilliant commanders and fearless commandos and scouts will not change the situation, while the very values ​​of modern mankind, patterns of behavior for young generations will be set by the United States. You can try to compete with the United States by launching various national propaganda projects, but at the global level, all these efforts of individual states are in vain.

But what alternative can be opposed to American cultural expansion? Religious conservatism and traditionalism? Most of the socially active and educated population of the world will not go for a “religious renaissance” - the world has changed and these values ​​are more perceived as a relic of the past, a sign of sociocultural backwardness, which, as a rule, is closely connected with the economic backwardness.

Religious slogans can still mobilize some of the poor youth in Asian and African countries, and even then, if they are supported by the money of the Persian Gulf oil monarchies and funds controlled by them. In the Christian world there is not even that - the Western churches have long lost the battle for the minds of people, with the Eastern churches everything is only slightly better.

Contrasting American culture and the archaic of the East, they try to show us that there is no other alternative. Like, there is either the West, personified by the United States and based on capitalist values, or even less attractive backward countries of Africa and Asia with their religious fanaticism, inhumanity, hatred of Europeans (and whites) as such.

By confronting us with this choice, we are deliberately deprived of a third path that would reject both Westernized Western culture and Eastern archaic. And the fact that both the Russian authorities and the authorities of other countries trying to oppose the United States follow the same path in the wake of Western capitalist values, is the victory of American culture and the great misfortune of modern mankind.

    Like, there is either the West, personified by the United States and based on capitalist values.
    Values ​​of carnal lust? A culture of gluttony, bowel movement and uterine burping? Axillary laughter? The basics of chicken house laws and the principles of black and white? The beneficial effect of the thesis: "Kill! Loot! Steal!"? The principle of historical justice based on muscle mass?
    And the most important culture is sodomy. The most important result of culture is an asexual, brainless creature, "addicted" to soft drugs ...

            learned patterns of behavior that were alien to Soviet society and Russian culture.

            Russian culture, but not Russian.
            Original peoples live on the territory of Russia. Each nation has its own culture.
            There were more such peoples in the Russian Empire.
            Georgians, Azerbaijanis, Avars, Poles and others all have their own culture.
            Otherwise, we all turn into nothing more than an electorate.

            Russian culture is based on Orthodoxy.
            The Communists fought against Orthodoxy by exterminating priests and destroying temples and churches.

            But at the same time, the Communists took the Orthodox to the custom of the Russian man and "osovetchival" them.
            Instead of engagement - registration in marriage. Instead of the church - registry office.
            Instead of Christmas - New Year.
            The ring on the finger could not be overcome.
            The tree also could not.

            The Communists could not forbid or replace other holidays.

            People continued to celebrate Baptism, Shrovetide, Easter and other Russian holidays despite persecution.

            This is money in the author’s head.

            Americans live their own civilization.

            Russia is rebuilding its civilization path.

              American culture is not loot.
              Distinguish culture and propaganda.

              German culture and Goebels propaganda are not the same thing.

              Italian culture and Mussolini propaganda are not the same thing.

              Propaganda of pederasts is part of EU policy, but it is not part of the culture of Germans or Austrians.

              Does the author really not understand this? request

                Propaganda is also carried out through popular culture. If the main idea is loot at any cost, it will be reflected in the culture. Creating a consumer who firmly believes in the United States as a paradise on earth, if not the goal, is the result of the US mass culture.

                But what about fairy tales about princes who found their princes? Aren't tales a part of culture?

                So the author understands everything. But if everyone begins to say to a healthy person that he looks sick, then he will most likely get sick ...

                  Read Russian fairy tales.

                  Are you interested in the bugger lifestyle?
                  The buggers are not a nationality.
                  There is no culture.

                  Just as there is no culture and nationality of the alcoholic and drug addict.

                  The banker is also not a nationality.

                  There is no such people - a banker.

                  You, along with the author, derogatoryly converted American culture into money worship.

                  Do not bulge your nose.

                  Is Mark Twain also loot?

                    Mark Twain, Hemingway, O'Henry, Charles Spencer Chaplin, Ridley Scott Films. Author, look at least “Train to Yuma” with Crowe and Bale - children should be raised on such films.
                    You can’t paint with any paint any national culture. Did
                    American films do not have the depth that we see in Soviet and Russian, in Italian cinema. But American cinema has always amazed us with spectacle, spectacular movie actors, which overlapped with the simplicity of the storyline.

                    .
                    Is Italian cinema striking in its depth? Depth of shallow filth? Spaghetti Westerns? Fantozzi?
                    Alas, in the mass film production of any country there are enough of the shortcomings that are presented in the quote. Recently, we discussed Russian cinema here, and also frowned.
                    It is clear that there are many organic fertilizers around. But one must be able to see the good. And write about it is good. What would such an article change for the better? We will gather, quarrel with America, capitalism, with each other, condemn ... And what will change for the better?
                    See "Train to Yuma", who did not see. See “Good Year” by Ridley Scott with Russell Crowe and his wife, relax in the evening, stop running around the hectic, take a breath. Watch "6 Days 7 Nights" with H. Ford. These films will leave a pleasant memory in your soul and in no way fall under the criteria for chasing the dough. Look around calmly and carefully, try not to judge, and you will discover what else is good in our human world. I have the honor. hi

                      Fantozzi? It’s ridiculous. In the 50-60s, Italian cinema dominated the world. in the 70s yes, Celentano, Villagio. Although Villaggio is very meaningful, and not just neighing.
                      The train to Yuma is very good, but it's a drop in the bucket. This is one diamond for 10-20 piles of shit. Maybe even more. And by the way, the film barely paid for itself. This is not Spider-Man or a dumb American comedy. By the way, normal comedies in Hollywood have not been shot for a long time. Probably the last one I know is Tutsi and Groundhog Day. Well, maybe a couple more easy films, without mat and vulgarity.
                      A good year is not bad of course, but not so memorable. And again, almost a box office failure. If you constantly stuff shit, it is very difficult for him to appreciate something sublime.

              As I understand it, the author did not see anything worthwhile from the US film industry, the article is superficial and entirely propaganda. I can continue the whole list of films, series, cartoon series, which are certainly classics and do not carry any propaganda. By the way, the Americans themselves, who are interested in the world of cinema, speak very positively about our classic films.

        To clarify, the Americans are immigrants from Europe and their culture is based on British culture. Americans are part of the West.
        In Britain, the musical revolution began.
        And in the 70s, they cut their hair under the Beatles and wore flared pants. And even earlier, the elite spoke French. So for Russia, it’s normal to adopt and digest Western culture. The main thing is not to bring this to the point of absurdity.

      Yes, it does. In Saratov, there are already more temples than before the revolution, including those that were installed on the territory of universities. This was not even before the revolution. At the same time, the number of drug traffickers increased, prostitution became commonplace, but industry ordered a long and healthy life. This, of course, is temporary difficulties, but Shoigu will be completed with a military temple - and we will live with God's help, just as I had never dreamed of with the “scoop”! In the morning we build everything for prayer at the matins, then stand for the poor, then you yourself understand, well, and there you can go to a brothel or a brothel.

      that’s good to “drive”, everyone didn’t care what you noted, no one forbade you anything. if you want to paint eggs with greens, you want iodine or potassium permanganate ... your affairs ... there were no "cars" for THIS, you shouldn’t lie, even sometimes they congratulated you on the black and white screens and didn’t shoot anyone.

      The church is not faith. the number of churches does not increase the number of believers. Traditions cultivated by Orthodoxy take their roots from Greek Orthodoxy, and Russian culture based on self-sacrifice for the sake of society is more ancient, our life is more difficult, it is easier to survive by society. Orthodoxy is simply the most suitable traditional religion, convenient for the ruling class.

      Stalin, by the way, actually continued the work of Jesus Christ by making an attempt to build a society of social justice. He only built it on the basis of the code of the builder of communism, in fact repeating the famous libel from the Sermon on the Mount. And the fact that he did not turn to the Bible cannot be two suns in heaven!

        The plans of Stalin did not include the destruction of the Church. And if he had such intentions, he would undoubtedly start from the pillar of the church hierarchy - the Synod, as the supreme organ of church administration.
        However, those servants of religion who explicitly or secretly opposed the Soviet government fell under the hand.
        So, in July – September 1937, the Belarusian Orthodox Autocephalous Church spy-rebel organization was liquidated in Belarus with a center in Minsk and branches in Bobruisk and Rogachev, which united 13 anti-Soviet rebel groups in Minsk, Osipovichsky, Smolevichsky, Chausky, Pukhovichi , Smilovichi, Klichevsky, Borisov and other areas of the BSSR. This organization was attended by 2 archbishops, 30 priests, up to 170 people of kulaks, gendarmes, former officials and other anti-Soviet element ... ”[89].

    No, everything is simpler - a consumer society. What the United States drove into the current duplex - the genius is not the one who did something, but the one who bought a lot. And when no one is going to produce anything in the country, just to consume - that’s where the production leaves China and China has a very negative trade balance - China does, but the United States only buys from it, they have nothing to sell to China)))

      American values ​​are too voluminous. And in different films made by Hollywood, different values ​​are shown. Starting from the American classics (for example, “Gone with the Wind”, where is there what the author of the article describes? Or where the cult of violence in “Apocalypse Today” is just a film negating this cult) and ending with modern ones.

      And if we compare our modern war films and American films, then in general the result is not in our favor. In our modern films, with rare exceptions, and most importantly in TV shows, it is often not at all clear what the author wanted to say with this film and what purpose he pursued when shooting it.

And why did this happen, the answer is simple - maximum profit with minimal investment. Whose values ​​are these ???

          I think the degradation of Russian cinema is recognized by any adequate person. The most offensive is that even in the 90s quite a few quality films were shot, many of which remained in the memory of the people and were stolen into quotes. But the last decade in Russian cinema can be called troubled times.

                      Do you remember what was happening in the country then? we laughed at ourselves. it helped distract from that gray life. when you tell a funny joke you also look for the meaning and what does he teach? ) irony in itself, and even more so in comedy, is always good.

                      I do not compare. I say that this is a film for those who wanted to laugh at themselves. a good joke does the same thing. in any case, the whole thing is a matter of taste. if you don’t come, then I don’t agitate you to become his fan. we just talked about whether it is quality or not. I think so.

I’ll translate that would not be confused. he says, please don’t force me, she says well let go well. before that I was hysterical about and attacked him with scissors at home in bed while being when he came to her. that's all. read. and do not show the first pictures you get.

    So it is possible to “Operation Y”, “Moonshiners”, “Prisoner of the Caucasus” also not to take into account. But who dares to say that this is a "second-rate" product? The legendary movie.
    Each time its own films. And therefore, at the turn of the 00-10s, I can’t remember really iconic films, because there’s no time either. We don’t swell with hunger, but there’s only enough to eat, there is no banditry, but there is no order either ...

    The most offensive is that even in the 90s quite a few quality films were shot, many of which remained in the memory of the people and were stolen into quotes. But the last decade in Russian cinema can be called troubled times.
    In the 90s .. I can’t remember anything of quality what ..possibility of inertia was still possible in places, it is not possible to instantly stop the huge colossus by the treacherous stroke of the pen. And why the criminal opuses like blindfolds, brothers, boomers, and features of hunting with fishing pulled away for quotes? Doubtful works of art in terms of cinematographic art ... right now they will stick the minuses of young 90s. laughing

      laughing hi Films, TV shows of the 90s ----- this is my school time and most of them ---- the elders watched, and I, in the middle of the eye, slightly.
      But childhood begins with cartoons! And the best, kind, beautiful --- precisely Soviet! Now what appears? I do not like sketchy ugly people. After all, identification with the heroes would somehow be wrong then.
      To an ugly man ---- an ugly life.
      The theme of songs, both modern and Soviet, is also interesting.
      By the way, we have a kindergarten in the yard. All day long Soviet children's songs of the last century are heard all over the yard! There are no new ones !!!!! Probably for the best.

    Nonsense. The percentage of contemporary films about the "bloody Stalinist regime" is very small.
    And in the majority, all these films do not pay off and are shot with budget money. So, it’s not about the profit at all from the word at all!
    So get your arguments past.

      Over the past 15 years, I can only remember a couple of good films about the Second World War. “In August of the 44th,” “Brest Fortress,” with a stretch will go “28 Panfilovites,” the serial “Leningrad”. With the rest begins to feel sick. “White Tiger”, “Stalingrad”, “Sniper”, “T-34” - this is an idiocy just for the victims of cinema level “Grandfather Pula”.

    "And the fact that both the Russian authorities and the authorities of other countries trying to oppose the United States follow the same path in the wake of Western capitalist values, is the victory of American culture and the great misfortune of modern mankind."

    Formally, Western values ​​are condemned in politics, in education, and in the confessions of the Russian Federation .... But the “fathers of the peoples” of the Russian Federation themselves are typical Westerners in everything. It is rather humiliating to the descendants that some kind of "films" are felling the Empire.

          The USSR was not an eastern archaic, it was an industrial power, where you turned to a simple worker.

    of course, you excuse me, but to be based on several films with frank cranberries throughout the cinema is at least strange. show me at least a hundred times Rimbaud or red heat it will not affect my perception of life. I know hundreds of films that are many times more qualitatively deeper and smarter than all that our industry produces. everyone likes old soviet films. and that is great. but they don’t come to our children because they are hopelessly outdated. Americans also have a lot of classics, which is wonderful just but their children also do not need. Scarface Schindler's List Raging Bull and much more. old Disney cartoons even come to me still. I review many times) it’s not that they are filming, but how we perceive what we are watching. and cranberries were and will be. only it has to the real cinema the same relation as rap to the classical stage.

      He is different, American cinema. It has everything, any scenarios - at least with a sense of the past, at least with different assessments of today, futuristic. I watched with pleasure the series Castle, Bones, Remember All, The Mentalist, Lucifer, and others were the same. What attracts you? Passionate, honest attitude of the characters to work. I would say superresponsible, often not in favor of personal life. Well, of course, in favor of damned American capitalism. But it would be strange if Hollywood filmed not in favor. And we build ourselves - what? In our series, this is not observed - a passionate and honest attitude to work. Only occasionally, and somehow not very convincingly. A reflection of the truth? Because we are not building capitalism. Generally deprived of ideological orientation. They left from socialism, never came to capitalism. There is no attractive hero of our time. Maybe I saw little of modern Russian films. Only Brother-1 and the brilliant Zhmurki were remembered.
      I do not watch TV shows with our village virgins forever aching, desperately wanting to marry an oligarch. Although it may be the truth of the present life.

        follow the laws of honor and conscience


        Everything would be fine ... Yes, only conscience is a set of standards of behavior loaded into the human brain (and up to a certain age). A sort of set of "base libraries". All behavioral programs are attached to them; they cannot be thrown out painlessly, let alone replaced by others in adulthood. And the deviation from the standard is perceived by the brain as a "mismatch signal" - those same torments of conscience.
        And now the conclusion is - download other standards from the very beginning. Your grandmother (great-grandmother) probably did not take off her headscarf in public - ashamed. And your daughter will twist a finger at the temple, if you force her to wear a scarf in public. Try to go to the nudist beach naked - you need to break everything in yourself. And there are tribes in Africa where they walk naked - and this is the norm, no tension.

        The author went too far in one - all under one comb. A society is puff from an altruist to an egoist. Moreover, both those and those are needed. And the moral of society is selected by evolution, not anyhow. There is a society that means sustainability, and morality corresponds to its structure.

    Solid verbiage. The author completely dada did not touch on the very essence of American culture, what it consists of. The fact that American films are understandable to any person even with low intelligence, is that really bad ?! In my opinion - it's great! To convey the main idea even to a person not particularly gifted with intellect is only a plus of American cinema. Although Hollywood makes high-profile films the same. It's just that we do not watch them, as well as ours. Yes, and the great writers and their works in American culture have the same thing.
    Well, the fact that we drew tips is hostile and unsightly, so we are the same. Remember the “Single Swim” and “Case in Square 36-80”.

    So the article is one-sided, without in-depth analysis, comparison of facts and, in general, with a complete absence of real arguments. Just a spray of saliva.

        Or, for example, Vincent Ward’s film “Where Dreams Come Up” based on the novel by Richard Mateson. Reliance on a whole layer of culture, on knowledge of the fine art of the Renaissance.
        And in general, what amazes me in American films? An appeal to the culture of mankind in general. To any of its sections. There are myths of ancient Greece, and Roman history, and the history of Europe. The directors want to explain to the average American that he, the average, is the heir to the history of, if not all of humanity, then its advanced part. Therefore, films such as, for example, the sequence of "Librarians" are shot.
        You American are the heir to the great science of mankind. And therefore, in American films, scientists are frequent characters and the plot develops around scientific discoveries. And pay attention, even in the most seemingly nothing pretending films in the dwellings of heroes - shelves, or even bookcases, open books on tables, characters read, make notes. Immediately there are figurines, even artifacts, on the walls are paintings, drawings, and the heroes themselves periodically utter quotes from ancient philosophers.
        And further. Characters watch news on television, discuss political news. You, an American, are involved in everything that is being done in the world, your government is concerned about this. It makes the present history, so you make it ...
        In our films, this is rare in rare cases. As if our people live outside of time and space, on the outskirts. They solve some particular problems that concern only themselves. And they have no historical past. And even with modernity there is no connection.

    I'm afraid the origins of US cultural bases are still in Europe
    American culture is a completely capitalist culture, devoid of foundation and based on the most important value - the desire for money, big money.

    The author contrasts the cultural and religious traditions of the Old World with the new creatures of capitalism in the United States.
    The author could have a deeper understanding of the issue, read, for example, Max Weber, "Protestant Ethics and the Spirit of Capitalism," and get to know more deeply the concept of "Protestant Labor Ethics."
    “If God shows you this path, following which you can earn more without any harm to your soul in any other legal way than in any other path, and you reject it and choose a less profitable path, then you interfere with one of the goals of your calling, you refuse to be the steward of God and accept his gifts in order to be able to use them for His good when He so desires. Not for the comfort of the flesh and sinful joys, but for God you should work and grow rich ”

    The realized opportunity to make money for a Protestant is a religious dogma.
    And this did not appear in the States, but came from Europe, in fact, from Christianity.
    And the author should stipulate that he writes about modern mass culture, because if you take, for example, literature in the USA, then this is Mark Twain, Dreiser, Jack London, Hemingway, Melville, Irving, Fitzgerald, Salinger, Bradbury and many others, who does not fall under the views of American culture on the author.

      In the United States, culture was originally introduced by adventurers who arrived for the fruits of an “easy life.” That is why its fruits caused a "deadly heartburn" among the indigenous population. Revived slavery in all its glory supplemented it. And the sources are Great Britain, Spain ...
      Mark Twain, Dreiser, Jack London, Hemingway, Melville, Irving, Fitzgerald, Salinger, Bradbury and many others who do not fall into the author’s views on American culture.

    American cinema is only Marvel.
    I forgot)

    The biggest mistake in such an ideological struggle against the West is to put yourself higher, better in advance, without a long detailed justification.

    And it looks unconvincing.
    In such a massive movie, you need to prove your superiority. And try to come in from different directions.
    In American films, American Power itself is often portrayed in the most negative light, as is American society itself.
    Viewers do not believe that Americans are the best.
    Viewers are convinced that what is shown on the screen is True. And in many ways this is so. Quarters of ethnic ghettos, drug mafia, the rigidity of the system itself - all this is about America, we know from American films.
    They talk about themselves, and do it qualitatively, touching the most painful points, up to the recent racial segregation, extermination of the Indians, etc.
    No need to be afraid to tell the truth about the difficult past. About your past. Otherwise, the Americans will definitely say so.


    Those commercial projects, like Marvel, in America itself are not considered the pinnacle of cinema.
    Such a movie should pay for itself, which is why it is stereotyped and understandable to everyone.
    Of course, such films significantly affect the masses in other countries.
    But this first of all suggests that mass cinema in these countries is lagging and seriously lagging behind.
    This is not a special ideological campaign from the Americans, they just make such films better than anyone and that's it.
    This is like considering Windows on a computer, or Android on a phone as primitive as American movies.

    But this is not so. Otherwise, there would be no such success.
    American culture now, just stronger than other cultures.

    It is necessary to reduce this gap, and not to belittle American cinema.
    Because while we continue to consider all these films as simple chewing gum, they are turning the rest more and more into Americans.
    For real Films 2 and a half people will go.
    And that is why the real Cinema, the Americans can not be defeated.
    Even if it is better, deeper, more soulful.
    They just look negligible.

    I fully support the author. American so-called culture is one of the powerful factors that played a role in the fact that our fellow citizens decided to try on capitalist clothes. Oh, I remember how we guys in the late 80s were fans from Rambo - and not from the first part, which was really shot in white, but from the second and third, where the screen fills with cranberries and pathos.
    But cinema is part of the propaganda machine. The Bolsheviks were well aware of this. And those who replaced them (nomenklaturachiki name Suslova) all left to chance. But the Western partners learned the lesson of the 10-20s of the last century. No wonder "Battleship" Potemkin "is still one of the most revered teaching aids for their filmmakers.

      Sorry, but this is a complete game. Is it Mark Twain that has influenced the fragile minds of Soviet citizens, or maybe Salinger with his Catcher in the Rye? or did Laurence of Arabia reformat the way people shot by David Lin? or does the Green Mile affect our brains so much that we become capitalists? it all depends on what you are watching, what you are interested in.

        It all depends on what the central media broadcasts. In the late 80s, Rambo was not the first at the box office. Although there is a real drama of the Vietnam War veteran (although I tell you, I myself know, I hope). There were a second and third remba. I’m talking about this.

    I have long stopped watching western films because there was a strong feeling that the scripts for them were written in a madhouse. Watching DORAMA movie, series on historical topics. It helps to understand the structure of our power. Here are a couple of passages:

    After watching the series "A Tree with Deep Roots", I realized why Cyril and Methodius simplified the alphabet, turning it from figurative into letters denoting sounds. This enabled the simple people working in the field from dawn to dawn to quickly learn to read and write. This is the main merit of Cyril and Methodius, and not the one we are told about ...

    honestly, the article resembles a nagging little boy. Now, tell me, who is preventing us from realizing our own "cultural expansion" in the United States? Well, they liked Tarkovsky at the time (although not everyone understands him), well, "create" a modern version of the director "not for everyone", let him "rivet" the picture on an external viewer. So no, in our cinema the wretched is sitting on the wretched. Here we take an example of the Great Patriotic War. Over the past 25 years, not a single normal film about their own story has been shot. Why not make a good film about the same Stalingrad, about Chuikov? Or not to film, in my opinion, one of the most truthful books about the war - "Vanka-company" (I highly recommend) or re-shoot "The Living and the Dead"? The psychology of the article is the psychology of the weak. Here everyone loves to laugh at embroidered shirts, but! They found a simple and understandable to most symbol. What about us? ... "Gazprom-property of Russia ..."? And the last, well, they know how to make a spectacular movie. It must be admitted. Bondarchuk Sr. was able to do with us.

    The author is very superficial and one-sided regarding American culture.
    In fact, American films do not have the depth that we see in Soviet and Russian, in Italian cinema.
    I can still understand the depth in Soviet cinema, although in old American films there is also depth, some vital problems, everyday life, etc. are revealed. But about the depth in the modern Russian "cinema" - it is strong! fool The incompetent under-directors somehow take off their highs and ask them to rent them from the Ministry of Culture, and sometimes they push the premieres of Hollywood films for this.
    But American cinema has always amazed us with spectacle, spectacular movie actors, which overlapped with the simplicity of the storyline. American films are produced in such a way that people with the lowest level of intellectual development can understand them. This, in many respects, ensured the success of American films in export.
    There are some very budget films like Forrest Gump, Escape from the Shawshank, Green Mile, Nice Guys (and many of them), which reveal a huge number of aspects of human relationships, life problems and ways to solve them and much, much more. At the same time, there are no spectacular explosions to the skies in the frame and there are a hundred dead bodies. There are family comedies, there are also action-packed action movies, there are horror films, there are military-patriotic films, there are science fiction films and fantasy films, and there are social dramas. Everyone will find it to their liking. The author apparently believes that all of Hollywood's production comes down to the movie "Avengers". But, alas, the current Russian cinema cannot offer the viewer such a genre variety as Hollywood.

      Not having good domestic cars how can you find fault with the western ones. The same is our modern cinema. Cranberries are spreading and cut dough. Especially on our TV channels. No movies. There are no detectives, no TV shows. Flipping through the channels. In remote villages, Botox girls with fashionable hair and clothes from a boutique! Depict the type of collective farmers. They don’t know how to play, they play themselves. Especially these "beauties" are striking in military films. There is no desire to watch this balcony. Then he was surprised to learn that modern war films were shot by Belarusians !!! Ours, such as the son of the great pope B. - Stalingrad and a number of others are not inspiring, the same hapless Hollywood, only a parochial one.
      What can we offer to the West. Nothing! The USSR could offer. There were stars, not self-proclaimed, who assign this symbol to each other, but real ones. There were wonderful films about the war. Where are they? About actors see above. There were adaptations of Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and other classics. Where is all this?
      Now American culture and Hollywood in particular. In Soviet times, the journal Foreign Literature was published. There were mostly works by American and other Western writers. The magazine had to wait weeks in line at the library. Hollywood rivets films for all tastes. Of course, there is a lot of money. You can’t shoot a good movie on the street now. Great artists. Great screenwriters.
      I live on the border with Finland. Watching their TV. So, on Finnish TV a huge amount of American production! These are sequels and talk shows and films. Finns got hooked on Hollywood! This is not dill, a developed country.
      Where are our screenwriters? Scenarios are one misery. In Soviet times, we had good screenwriters, mostly Jews. The impression that they left for the States! Many programs on our TV are American, purchased rights.
      So critics of Hollywood, of course you can chew potatoes and admire its taste, but this is bad manners.

    “But the spread of the“ American idea ”does not mean a new victory for European civilization. For there is a soil model of the“ American idea ”and an export model of the“ American idea. ”How is the export model of the“ American idea ”different from traditional European civilization? the model does not include either Christianity, which the great majority of the American people live in, or any other moral system. The export model of the "American idea" attracts people of the whole world (with the help of Hollywood) by the promise of personal of freedom, scientific and technological progress and material paradise, but it repels many people, since they know that without morality and without religion personal freedom is identified with complete irresponsibility; without a spiritual hearth, scientific and technological progress and material prosperity are empty. the ideology inherent in the export model of the "American idea" has little in common with the foundations on which American society is built.

          Did you go to churches during the Soviet Union? I went. No one forbade. In villages during the war they were used for other purposes. The faith of party workers was not encouraged. Now we have the lessons of Orthodoxy and Islam at school. This, on the one hand, teaches us good, on the other, it divides us into two camps. A common ideology was intended to replace religion. Did not happen. And here are the fruits.

    American culture conquers the world

    What kind of American culture can we talk about? if this never happened. America was created from emigrants, they also destroyed the culture of the native American people. And these emigrants are not the American nation and they do not have their own culture. They brought their culture, customs and customs to the American continent, from their countries in which they lived before and consolidated this culture. They do not even have their own language, which at least somehow, could be linked to culture.
    Cinema is the main weapon of American culture

    So this is not their culture, but business.
    Since American society was already forming as capitalist and did not know other relations, American culture is a completely capitalist culture, devoid of foundation and based on the most important value - the desire for money, big money.
    Is it a culture, most likely it is a business.

    Article 13 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation states: “No ideology may be established as state or mandatory.” From this position, a statement is derived that the Russian state does not and cannot have its own ideology.
    But then all the talk about anti-extremist, anti-crisis, other forms of state ideology, about strengthening ideological opposition to destructive ideologies is nothing more than a delusion and self-deception.
    My personal opinion is to introduce quotas for showing Hollywood products, or at least try to do how France struggles with the dominance of foreign media products, they still have quotas for the radio station. But we do not have an ideology. So what to fight then?

    Needless to say, American cinema of the second half of the twentieth century was thoroughly permeated with hatred for the Soviet Union, the socialist system?

    I must say that Soviet cinema also did not have warm feelings for the United States. We lost the ideological war. And now we lose - all the time, eternal self-spitting, "spiritual quests", etc. And the Americans correctly understood the purpose of the movie - to entertain. And through entertainment to drag their ideas. And we have a “upbringing” right away, which, naturally, I don’t want to watch, except for the filmmakers and their families.

    National culture is determined by the territorial and climatic conditions in which the people live. The culture of the steppe peoples will always be different from the peoples living in forests or mountains. And the preservation of national culture is possible only in rural areas and small cities with an influx of population from rural areas. Big cities form a completely different culture. And the more large cities around the world are similar to each other, the closer their culture will be. Even now, if you suddenly forgot, sometimes it’s difficult to understand at the airport of which country you are.
    In America, one of the first large cities appeared and got enormous development. Therefore, it is not surprising that it is American urban culture that influences the rest of the world. If another country overtakes the Americans in the development of urban culture, it will begin to exert the same influence on everyone else.

    There is a traditional civilization and a traditional culture. The 200 years of the US is too little for an alternative culture. “American culture” in the narrow sense is a superstructure phenomenon that provides a specific, originated in the USA, method of production and consumption. Without this basis, there can be no "American culture." Those who share the "values" adopted in the United States perform functions and are subjects of this empire, which controls (or, in other words, controls) the consumption of resources, production and distribution of goods.

    In my opinion, the author is too biased towards American cinema, and therefore sees only what he wants / hopes to see. I’ve recently watched from the modern American films Green Book, Chasing Bonnie and Clyde, Three Billboards on the Border of Ebbing, Missouri. In all these films there are no superheroes, special effects, spectacular chases and shootings, however, I really liked them and do not regret the time spent at all.

I do not deny the presence of golden films. And black and white cartoons are a masterpiece. Now there are a lot of films, science fiction. And they try to give significance. Although If you think about it, it’s all nonsense. Along with good Soviet films, there was a lot of husk. Now there is mostly husk.

    There is an American "culture" around the world ... And what of this?
    And in Russia today, Putin's "culture"! And what from this?
    Do you feel better?


    What difference does it make if both of these cultures are involved in the cult of money, but with only one caveat: to America today flocking cash flows of the world, and cash flows from Russia flow away with wild speed ... That's the whole difference.

    Otherwise, EVERYTHING is the same, with the only amendment that “there” are other laws.
    There is progressive tax on the rich! But in Russia (the only one in the world !!!) there simply is no such tax, and some of the castes of the “great and god-like” castles do not allow it, it considers it unnecessary ...
    Unemployed “there” can live on the benefit of the labor exchange all their lives, and we only have six months.
    Try "there" to give a bribe to a policeman or major to drive along the road without traffic rules ...

    Here are such things. And the rest - what difference does it make that an owl is about a stump, that we kick an owl ...
    In a word, thanks to the great Putin for our shitty life!
