Good point namehere, cause if the NWO comes into actual existence, it will be by way of the UN or through the UN.

It's just acknowledgment that culture is a lot more than a question of commercial value, and that a lot of people out there don't want the fact that the U.S. has more marketing power to cause their kids to become little Americans.

IMO - the NWO already is in existence - by way of corporate law, and establishing corporations as equivalent to nations under international law in free trade agreements.
Yea UN! This tiny little convention might help protect the few freedoms we have left.
Originally posted by namehere: yes it is, whos economy do you think it will hurt? its an easy way to force our businesses out and shut our media up, they can now arbitrarily deem anything they dont like as cultural intrusion, our fast food resturants or any other business ventures are not culture or objects americans hold any signifigance to yet many like you wish to deem it as such and i bet the first victim of this will be the US economy.
Originally posted by AmbientSoundHow about cultural darwinism? If your culture is backward, repressive, and anti-productive, maybe it should vanish. If your culture only holds you back and puts you at a disadvantage when interacting with other cultures, maybe it is natural for it to become extinct, like a failed species.
Originally posted by Astronomer68This seems like a heck of a silly thing for an international body to be meeting on. If the French don't want American films, music, etc. in their country, then let them ban them outright, then the world can see what is really going on here.
