"Piss on Hollywood, all of 'em. Haven't spent a cent on movies in decades, will never again. Money wasted better spent on mags and ammo. Why give your money to people who hate you?"Good question. How about this answer:
A) Because that's myopic and self-defeating.
B) Because the underlying themes in most of the Marvel flicks have been root conservative themes.
C) Because good culture drives out bad culture.
D) Because one movie will outlast a hundred documentaries, a thousand books and essays, and ten thousand blogposts, penetrate straight to the roots of memory and consciousness, and wear furrows there.
E) Because movies are the uniquely American art form of the last century.
F) Because they penetrate into parts of the world where reading the Declaration of Independence or Bill of Rights out loud would get you shot or jailed.
G) Because yielding the medium to the lunatic communists is a recipe for losing it forever, and then the culture, and finally society and civilization itself.
How's doing just that been working for you for the last 50 years?
H) Because (say it with me): politics is downstream from culture.
You give your money to people who hate you because they're distributing your message to the ends of the world, and making it hip and cool.
And because your mags and ammo haven't killed any communists, have they?
Shall I go on, or is that Baby Harp Seal of an isolationist argument dead enough for you already?
None of this should be news to anyone.
Cutting off your own nose to spite your face never kills the giant.
