Feudalism and Hollywood

As with all things, art and class struggle are related. As far as revolutionary content, television is absolutely the worst, because it is entirely state and monopoly controlled. Even in liberal Hollywood, which romanticizes the bloodthirsty limb-chopping feudalism of the Russian Czar and the Dalai Lama, filmmakers still have more autonomy than those who produce TV shows. The main television channels in the imperialist countries are the worst purveyors of reactionary drivel. Television offers no audience interaction with the directors, only the final products.

Hollywood loves feudalism, whether it’s “Anastasia,” “Seven Years in Tibet,” “The Last Samurai” or every Disney flick ever made. Psychology is a social product, and under a system which teaches you to think of yourself as a king, standing alone and “getting yours,” what more can be expected but a romanticizing of the period of “rule by divine right,” no matter how many eyes and limbs might fly by?
