Subject: RE: BS: Has Americanism Spread THIS far?
I also do agree with the above that the world-wide media vision of humanity is very Americanized, that America (and many but certainly not all Americans) want it to be that way and expend a lot of energy to ensure that it BE that way, and that this is what is, albeit insidiously, imperialistic.
It's like a calm assumption that of COURSE everybody should be like us.
But it is true that we aren't the only sports fanatics, and that the footballl riots so often described in the media are talking about soccer.
