The entire world has been subjected to the "American Exceptionalism" campaign since the end of the Second World War. Friend or foe, American culture has had a hand in the development of attitudes, accepted norms, achievement models and values both aesthetic and monetary all over the globe. During the Cold War it was a very powerful weapon against communism portraying the implied freedom, comfort, happiness and ease of everyday lives which stemmed from the democracy and openness of the American way of life.
As the 1960's rolled on, cracks appeared in this narrative. Not in the target nations abroad but at home as Vietnam, the Civil Rights movement, assassinations and political treachery became the true narrative for most Americans that had never seen these things enter the dreamscape before. Now there were two separate markets, domestic and international, created by proximity to the reality. Since this weapon was controlled by government the global market got the same programming without pause and by the end of the 20th century, it played a large part in the fall of the Soviet Empire. That is when control of the program was ceded to corporate interests who used it to monetize the globe.
The new masters of the dream bought every thing they could find, including politics. The rise of globalist neoliberalism turned the weapon upon all of the world to advance their interests. The methods turned to the domestic market. The "nation" was now represented in a "family" model, the first structure most people experience. Right and wrong in the family dynamic as propaganda is as old as time itself. Authority is bestowed and unquestioned, or else. The command structure is accepted, not challenged or questioned. Decisions are beyond lesser family members. Comply or be cast out.
Welcome to the 21st century, America. You bought it with little opposition. Enjoy.
