American Cowboys are Liberating the World but Refined Europeans (Still) Know Better
Composed on June 30, 2014
Europe, 2014. Europeans are suffering terribly under the ruthless yoke of American cultural imperialism. America’s brave spirit and mighty arms have long defeated all truly noble (reasonable) attempts to protect Europeans from liberty: the Spanish Inquisition, Queen Victoria, Kaiser Wilhelm, the Nazis, the Fascists, the Communists. Some Europeans are forced, for the first time, to take responsibility for their lives.
Tastes are defined by Hollywood, by local popular culture, and the (unhealthy) demand for liberty. TV shows such as Family Guy, Ridiculousness and Ugly Americans are freely available. Gangster rappers such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem are subverting public morality. Biker gangs and skinhead hordes are freely roaming through the streets (as if this would be desirable). On a daily basis, Europeans are forced to make horrible decisions (not much easier than Sophie’s Choice): Should I listen to the Sponge Bob or to the Robot Chicken?
