Proliferation of white devil culture throughout the world.
    #1846377 - 08/24/03 09:23 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

WTF is up with that anyway? Why are third world countries listening to Brittany Spears? Why the hell aren't they listening to good American music, or are they but the media doesn't want us to know about it?

Why aren't there any Sweedish science fiction series?

I know there's mexican soap opera's and wrestlng, and that hispanic channel on sattellite, and BBC America, and International news shows on NWI, and "Bush Mechanics" on Worldlink..


I think that's it.

I'm mostly curious about the science fiction shows, I think Science Fiction is the true curltural revoulution contrary to many's believe that it was the hippie culture.

SF can save the planet.

Neil Stephensen and William Gibson will save the planet. Bruce Sterling will not.

Telemundo has some good stuff on, mostly hot chicks and wrestling.

R.A. Heinlein is already saving the world from beyond the grave. See the 'exoskeleton' thread on the sci/tec forum :smile:

I posted a good Ray Bradbury essay on here last night. He turned 83 on friday!

what're you talking about? they're way more white devil culture in america than in sweden... abba and my car came from sweden..

I was a huge SF nerd as a child, I read the whole foundation saga (even the new prequels and gaia sequels) in 6th grade, and I wasn't living in a very american culture.

Duh, I bet people in england speak mostly english too. WDC is from America.

My question is where is this so called "other" culture? and why is "the world" trying so hard to be like us (WDC) if our culture sucks so bad?

oh. well you phrase it like you think we here in america aren't wallowing in it... in case you haven't noticed most people here aren't SF nerds.

anyway, it's cause the cheap and insubstantial always has a corrupting effect the sustainable and deep... that's one of the main reasons the rest of the world hates us, the US us like that 19 year old loser kid who is still in high school and buys the 15 year olds cigs.

in other words, kids are attracted to dumb stuff, and america markets to kids.

So other cultures are incapable of self governance?

You sound like a 19th century English colonial governor.

Paternalism all around!

well, what else could it be? the quality?  :lol:

america is just good at making insubstantial crap that looks good outside but is rotten inside, like fast food.
