Australian Americanization

Reader comment on item: [Symposium:] Why Does the World Hate America?
in response to reader comment: Australian Culture

Thanks for the warning! About all one can do in life is observe because it's more than impossible to ever change anything once the ball gets rolling. What's funny about this one is the Americanization of Australia's teens involves the negative part of America, the stuff America spews at the world. Most of that is out of the average American's control.

Ever since 1912, when the big New York banking families took over the treasury (the FED), they have been able to spew whatever they feel like spewing. If spewing gangsta rap and celebrity disfunction brings in a few bucks, they'll do it. They're only in it for the money. They could do a lot for the real people in the United States, but they've had 100 years to do that and we're all still waiting. I considered moving to Australia, but if it means more of the same, forget it.
