Trust me the conservative do not not like this globalism either its the left, aka, elites, aka establishment that are pushing for this. We understand what's happening but they simply have too much control.
You really ought to review history. Historically speaking, those countries that tried the isolationism that you suggest fell far behind other countries in the world, and they eventually had to embrace what they formerly eschewed.

And you really think things would change if the US isolated itself? Yes, they probably would, and my bet is that things would get far worse than they are.

you said American culture. The woke culture is constantly moving left America has 2 cultures one of a constant culture of freedom via conservativism ( via constitution) and the other one based on Marxism. They definitely do not represent the heart of American Culture they appose it!
Right, With conservatives, who love small government, legislating, I.e., making what people do in their bedrooms, reading certain books, what women do with their bodies, who we vote for and what makes us eligible to vote, how our children are educated, all of that illegal thus inviting more government control into their lives. The country is definitely moving left. :rolleyes:

Have you seen the movie Troy with Brad Pitt? Then go watch Hercules in Troy in the Netflix series. Notice a difference? My favorite genre went from historically accurate to fantasy in just a decade or so. This cancer is spreading to the gaming industry as well.
Will this woke monopolies learn their lesson? I hope so.

Eh, even the Illiad, upon which the film Troy is based, is a Greek mythology! We're not even sure if a Trojan war even happened!

Or perhaps a lazy catch-all for conservatives who don't actually have any proper arguments beyond name-calling.
Well I have seen first hand where small business that went woke ended up closing. In my opinion woke marketing is intended to destroy small business because they can't survive losing customers like Monopolies can.

It true it was common to make war stories to teach a lesson or virtues at that time.

Isolate? you confuse me for something else, my point things are woke enough it doesn't have to more woke where the state sponsored wokies are aggressively and regressively targeting private citizens for their political views. America is a multi cultural pot which is a summation of all the cultures of the world. What isolation? We literally have the UN centered here. It doesn't get better than this, the grass is not greener on the other side!
The beauty of our constitutional Republic is we lose some we win some other countries unfortunately might not have these privileges.
How many Democrat president turns you had over the last 20 years? How many Republican ones?

Seems to be pretty equal to me, specially since it's not looking good for a second Biden term right now anyway but we'll see.
Yes it's pretty sad most of these politicians over promise before the elections and the default to their positions to their donors and special interest groups. Conservatives call these fake Republicans Rinos Republican in name only. They run as Republicans but always vote with the establishment. The Democrats always use their talking points directly against their cousin Rinos. Rinos are the bate and switch of the Republicans. Notice There are no Democrats in name only. Also the head of CIA and FBI were all against Trump as well as the Democrats and Rinos FYI. There are talks about Impeachment but most Republicans have no backbone to go through with it.

Your opinion is clearly politically and idealogically motivated, so it isn't particularly relevant.

Netflix shut down the fansite because they've realised their honeymoon period of subscriber growth is over and they have to start getting real about their expediture. There's no mystery here and they'll still demonstrably wildly successful by any measure.

And non of this has anything to do with politics or your woke bogeymen.

Well it was more like their choices of not being neutral and experimenting with wokeness virtue signals like posting BLM signs that might have cost their potential clients. Companies used to cater to what clients want instead of pushing a blanket ideology on them. There is no boogyman that made those choices for them they were clearly riding the wave until now. You can still make subjective analysis based on objective information. Also my first comment here was that Netflix raised there rates for me that seems the biggest culprit ( the last straw) and the woke content was secondary. Disney on the other hand is losing a self Governance perk in Florida due to challenging Desatis on apposing 3 year olds from being taught CRT and gender studies. You can call bad choices scapegoats or boogyman but bad choices have consequences!

Who said you were? In any case, the point applies to anyone who uses the term as a form of insult.
Absolutely. IMO, anyone thinks that on the basis of "being woke," a company as vastly popular and the size of Netflix is going to go broke is living in an alternate reality. As @Dimitriid said, its 0.1% of their subscriber base, FFS. A trivial amount. IMO, everyone predicting doom and gloom for Netflix based on this is over-reacting.

Perhaps I have confused you for something else. As I see it, we went through four-years of people bowing to fealty to exactly what you are railing against. The "fearless leader" was, IMO, the exact opposite of the "woke" crowd and, by his words and actions, courted the anti-woke crowd even to the point of praising and encouraging violence against those who did not agree with him. That is not my interpretation of democracy and if this country goes down that rabbit hole again, it will, IMO, be the end of the country as we have known it.

If even an iota of things that are being revealed about 45 is true, such as this - https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-forced-governors-him-nicely-for-disaster-aid-book-says-2022-4 and it is tolerated again, this country is doomed.

point of praising and encouraging violence against those who did not agree with him. this I have to see what we experienced is woke minions destroying billions of dollars in property and pro fascist groups like antifa and new KKK replacement BLM roaming the streets and causing chaos. I see leftist still addicted to their Trump Hating crack even when he is not in office. While you are still addicted and focused on the past the Black conservatives yt channel is focused on the present and future stating that world famine is coming specifically this Summer his theory is bases on Biden's own admission, the war in Ukraine, the current evens in Ch!na, and 12 food plants in America were burned down within a few months of each other one of them being a fertilizer plant causing a fertilizer shortage. Do you know what fertilizer is used for? While black conservatives are following this story for past month or so you are addicted to the past. See the difference? One os focused on helping humanity while the other is addicted to their Trump hating crack!

When did the Democratic party in the United States become the party of the "elite" and the Republican party become the party of the uneducated? I read conservative posts now by people who don't even know how to use punctuation in sentences or conjugate a verb, and I recall that The Wall Street Journal and "yuppies" were Republican affiliated in the Reagan years.

People in the US (especially those who vote GOP) keep confusing social programs that work everywhere (like healthcare) with comunism or marxism. What's so fun about paying 5-10x compared to others for the same exact pill?

Nobody is pushing a blanket ideology on you! Disney is free to challenge whatever they like, same as you! There is no evidence of any secondary woke issue, man, you're making it up! You are away with the political fairies :D

So
if historically accurate is a spectrum of 100% accuracy vs 100 % fictional for me subjectively I would say it's leaning towards 75% accuracy if you want to get specific.
Update vs more like 25% accuracy and 75 fictional content today? Thoughts?
Brad Pitt is 75% Greek?

Because it passes my sniff test for 75% accuracy not sure what you want me to say; along with the British accents took a few points off there.
Your sniff test!?!?! Read my earlier post... it smells like sh!t!!!

And the movie was just one big turd.. if that passes your smell test, I'd hate to see a movie that didn't...

I actually loved The Vikings series with Ragnar Lothbrok, The Last Kingdom series, and The Peaky Blinders to name a few especially with a cunning protagonist if you are so interested.
Notice as it things turn to fecal ( as some describe )it starts to smell not the other way around.

Yes when you round up 75% 😉
So that means I can round up 75% in the 'Scandinavian' category for Caroline Henderson? With a name like "Henderson" she certainly seems to have more claim to her character's heritage than with a name like "Pitt" to any Greek ancestry.

Passes my sniff test.

Sure you can do whatever you want it's your choice are you getting triggered over mine?
