The point of B&B is the longterm effect on culture, which is beyond you. Real fascism is corporate rule, which is why we invested so much in Hitler (Bush, Harriman et al), also beyond you. And your cars of the rich is a straw man, since I spoke of cars of the common person. Come to think of it, one of Hitler's significant legacies was the car for everyone. Kinda like his pal Henry Ford, author of anti-Jewish propaganda.
Oh, I see. Somehow B&B will have a longterm effect on culture that earlier slapstick comedies never did. As if they were especially poisonous in some miraculous way that the examples I provided were not. Or is that "beyond" you.
Sorry, I'm not buying your corporate evil argument either. Between fascism and communism, close to a hundred million people were purposely murdered by governments in europe and asia during the 20th century. Our current corporations provide products and services, but they don't force you to partake of their offerings at gunpoint, much less go about purposely trying to kill the paying customer (bad for business, you know). If you can't sense the distinction between commerce and murder, well...
Cars of the common person? The common person in this country can buy what he or she likes. That they prefer to purchase things you don't does not prove some kind of corporate malfeasance is responsible for their choices. Been to a car dealer lately? Small economy cars are flying off the lots, while SUVs and trucks just sit there, despite deep discounts. It's called supply and demand.
What would be your suggestion? Besides large manufacturing corporations, who do you suppose is going to be able to design and manufacture more efficient vehicles? Who should be the arbiter of public entertainment? You?
We can have a discussion about facts and ideas, but if you're going to resort to declaring that you have superior powers of perception that entirely negate the views of anyone who disagrees with you, then there isn't much point in chatting, is there?
