and wants you to agree; and, moreover,
to consider US interests as being universal ones.

transform this particular mode of exploitation that
one can best test these various forms of resistance to the West.

with local popular or traditional forms driven out
or dumbed down to make way for American television,

- Fredric Jameson

structures is their capacity to devastate national
labour markets by transferring their operations to
cheaper locations overseas.

else now spills over from the sphere of culture into
our two remaining categories:
for this process is clearly,
at one level, the result of economic domination -
of local cultural industries closed down by American rivals.
- Fredric Jameson

Often, these downplay the power of cultural imperialism -
in that sense,
playing the game of US interests - by reassuring us
that the global success of American mass culture is not as bad as all that.
- Fredric Jameson

end of the Second World War to secure the dominance
