What culture?
You mean consumer culture? Because that's almost entirely what I see now in the country. What culture isn't being created by corporations and the industrial entertainment complex?

Not to be argumentative over your point Logs but if I'm accurately describing culture as a manufactured corporate enterprise thru mass media then your talking about changing what is arguably one of the power centers in American society.

I'm not convinced that are more 'enlightened' elites can make a case without addressing peoples material concerns. The Democrats won't and the republicans are going full on despotism.

Whereas the left.....
Well, I vote for replacing 'The Internationale' with Jarvis Cocker's more appropriate 2007 single for winning hearts and minds
