There is a big difference, and one reason why the US has so many problems is that some very influential people in the US attempt to conduct US foreign policy AS IF the US had absolute power in the world, and that is simply not the case. But it is true that the US is the world's sole superpower, and currently has no serious competitor in the role. But again, that is only a preponderance of power.
    Are you indicating that the USA is overtly covert?

We are imposing those values on others as much as the filth that you seem to only see.

    I have lived in other countries and visited many more... the USA is not imposing anything. People either like US products or they don't.
    I disagree with you and I gave an example of US government funded radio station that does it. When you air it, e.g. over the electromagnetic spectrum, with US government funds, you are indeed imposing it.

    That was not the example that you gave... you talked about filthy movies and magazines. I countered accurately.

    Do you mean NPR? Does that go into other nations? Can't listeners change the frequency or turn off the radio if it does? We don't have anything US Government funded here, so you are wrong on that account.

    I said what I meant.
    Yes, that the USA is covert and overt. But then again, so are many countries...

    Right. Radio Sawa. One example regarding an attempt to stop hate and relate people's with the use of music. That is hardly imposing decadent values onto others. You also talked about movies to which I countered with movies... you ignored that. Businesses do not impose anything... the people will want MacDonald's or they won't buy it. That is not imposing. Really, is your entire argument about one radio station and a few "filthy" movies? Seems you have a pretty poor view of America.

    Meh, these threads are always amusing.


    Usually made by someone who's somehow disenfranchised by the supra Americana white global culture that dominates and subverts everything else. To that I can't blame them. That cannot be fun no matter how you cut it. I'd probably bitch too if I wasn't a direct beneficiary of it.
