    You really turned into an even worse version of Sander, man. It's sad to say, but fuck me, you must be the worst person I know online. Do you have a job? A girlfriend? A life besides reading online articles and then summarizing them in bad English to prove some sort of point?

    I never said or made any other claim than the fact that someone has told me that it is a form of racism to critique others cultures.

    TBH, I don't see why you get so agitated and insistent that you would know what has or hasn't happened to me. You know, a stranger living in a land that you clearly do not live in.

    It's not inherently racist to, for instance, judge gender-discriminatory or religiously biased laws negatively. Leftists and liberals do it all the time, at home AND abroad, and catch no end of shit for the former from the conservative horde. The problem comes in when people are willing to summarily and monolithically judge cultures they aren't a part of and have selective, slanted exposure to, especially when they're taking the stance that their own shitty oppressive culture is superior and has a right to police or condemn the other one whole-cloth.

    If you were to judge America with the same sweeping superficiality the right and neolibs judge their favorite boogeymen and potential targets, you'd have to write the entire country off as a racist plutarchy full of Florida Men proud to live under Handmaid's Tale rules because the system has convinced them they're free.

    That is why it is important to not blanket judge a culture on whole but pick out the bad parts. My issue is any constructive criticism and I often get a knee jerk reaction i of racism. That was my point to Crni.

    In regards to policing it is a whole other issue.

    Make no mistake Yamu, as history has proven, there will always be a bully AKA policeman. I have said this repeatedly. I merely make the argument that of the 3 options available, only one country changes its leaders out. Only 1 nation isn't an ethno state clearly comfortable with overt racism. Out of the 3, only 1 tolerates freedom of press, follows the rule of law (at least internally), and also attempts to work with allies in a somewhat fair manner. It is ironic that the two major communist powers on the planet hated each others guts. One went so far as to go quasi capitalist and completely turn on the other.

    And BTW, let us recap on what happened the last time a major stabilising power collapsed. Oh yea, Europe embarked on wholesale warfare with itself for over a millennia. It got so bad the church had to intervene and tell the murderers to stop butchering each other and go butcher the muslims in the holy land. That unfortunately was a temporary fix as the euros went back at it again after conquering less advanced people wasn't enough. This butchery culminated in multiple world wars that cleared the field and bankrupted the old superpowers, and paved the way for Soviet/U.S. dominance.

    The world has always needs a leader, if not the U.S. then someone else.

    Didn't mean anything negative, sorry. Just that in Europe it's not that easy to understand how bad war etc. is since it's been a while since it was here, well Balkans and Ukraine but still.

    In Europe we simply hate war because after the Sequel to WW1 was so shit despite the high popularity on the box office we thought, fuck we better don't make a third one. Particularly as the actors have become so fat and old. No one wants to see them in WW3 really. But since America is making a lot of Middle Eastern Spin Offs these days, there is still something worthwhile watching. And there is also some independent low budged shit coming from China and Russia.

    So. There you have it Dopa.

    Just don't forget a lot of people trying to break into the movie industry, just check Netflix.

    The Chinese have been attempting to buy up a great amount of our studios. Hell, most movies that want to get into the Chinese market have to follow Chinese rules. Most rules equate to portraying the Chinese as heroic saviors (see Great Wall, The Martian, Iron Man, etc). They really want top dominate the Taiwanese market though, along with markets in the region.

    Iranian hollywood is slow but only because of cash flow problems, although a recent unwitting investor really invigorated their industry. They still push plenty of movies for the regional and domestic markets.

    Russians have potential but they too suffer from cash problems due to bad investments in the past and current problems trying to break into the ME market. They have had mild success in the American and European markets with films, Hardcore Henry, being an example.

    Yea, when there is money to be made, everybody going to look out for their own interests.

    I feel the metaphor may have become a bit mixed here, but then war and film have always both been messy, dirty businesses, so it kind of works.

    It isn't racist to crticize someone or something, unless you're doing it on the sole basis of their race.

    And culture=/=race.
