because of hip hop music and people like Kanye West.

Seriously, you know that this horrible form of music represents about 90% of what American popular culture prefers.

When they do finally come out of their closet, what will they think of us all based on this and other recreational activities that the masses partake in?

Uhh no hip hop does not respresent american culture. Only people that listen to hip hop are kids. I used to like it when I was a teenager but not really so much anymore. And also all hip hop is not the crap you see on tv. There is a lot of smart and good intelligent hip hop with a good message, it just doesnt get played on tv.

And if you wanna talk about arrogant douchebag type people like kanye west I can name just as many from europe and other countries as I could name from America.

the aliens like ashter galactic federation , which is a theocratic technocracy and a massive galactic empire with strong moral values(according to UFOlogists) , will consider USA a horrible savage nation , with people behaving like animals and brutes and no moral or karmic understanding

they don't destroy USa , but hopefully , the russians will destroy USA and wipe it off the map

thats really true. the only hip hop shown on media is the ones making money effortless and music made without putting much thought to, which alot of kids buy into of course.

Yeah exactly. The biggest buyers of mainstream rap music are kids from the suburbs who listen to gangster rap because they like to fantasize about being gangsters. Most the hip hop that is positive is underground and gets no play on radio or television.

Why specifically do you think they'd look at America and think our culture is any more void of value than other cultures?

Because of crappy rappers?

If that is really the substance by which they'll judge us, I'm not interested in their conclusions.

I agree, the probably listened to Five for Fighting, and Michio Kaku interviews, or looked at the hubble space telescope pictures, and thought wow, what a stupid culture.

-sarcasm over-

In my eyes, we've done better then any other planet in our solar system!

We've actually got life.

For you my sir, you're generalizing.

Hip hop doesn't represent everything, it's a fad, just like every other genre out there.

It'll come and go.

-If anything, I'd like to be the spec of the void seen, the thing that an outside observer would say 'oh' to.

If 90% (never polled of course lol) enjoys this, great, if they live by it... then darwinism, will not allow it to live very long.

More likely they think all human culture is rediculous.

IF they looked at America they would think we were the greatest thing they had ever seen and would land just to join the party. Then we make sure they had the best time ever, get them wasted, and learn all of their technology secrets so we could rule the world.. Oh yeah, that already happened.

This is what the germans thought of American culture. I think it runs true to today.


Americanism is certainly not a spiritual movement, nor is it a worldview that it is possible to oppose at the intellectual level. Its political beneficiaries have tried in recent years to give it,
if not a face, at least a program or a goal: "the American Century." It is a collection of empty promises of the type democratic orators have always made — but this time on a world scale. There is nothing in them to excite a reasonable man. But that is exactly the point of Americanism! The key is not what it promises, but what it cannot promise. The key is not what it demands of men, but what gives them.

One should not underestimate the danger of Americanism, or its seductive power. It offers devotion to a culture of nothingness, independence, lack of restraint, a freedom from all obligation, from all honor, from all consideration.

That is the political danger of Americanism. It leads those who fall prey to it away from political thinking, away from responsibility, even to their nation, away from decency, even from national decency.
The American lad may use fine phrases to say that the nationalist is his political enemy. In reality, however, he fights a man who makes uncomfortable and difficult demands on him, the man who recognizes the fate of the nation as his fate, who respects the woman who will become the mother of his children, who wants to be a model, who always acts as if the eyes of the nation are upon him. The American lad feels his "freedom" restricted by such behavior. He wants to keep the hot music spinning on the record player, not be reminded that he must work as well as relax, that he must not only enjoy, but also honor the dignity of his nation.

That is neither comfortable nor pleasant. It is pleasant to talk slang and enjoy a loose moral life with those of like mind. Americanism has its delights, and he who is captivated by them not only sticks his head in the sand, he also gets some pleasure.

Americanism's lack of culture and morality, its freedom-promising "Century of the Child," is nothing but a concealed way of ruining the youth.

Americanism is a splendid method of depoliticization. The Jews have used jazz, hip-hop and movies, magazines and smut, gangsterism and free love, and every perverse desire, to keep the American people so distracted that they pay no attention to their own fate. Even in politics, they are no longer influenced by the head, only by what is under the belt.

Nearly every nation in the world faced or is facing the need to combat Americanism, a generally pleasant retreat to a barbaric lack of culture.

Americanism is not merely a moral-cultural form of degeneration, nor can it be combated by nonpolitical means. It has already been defeated when one digs it up by its roots and sees there plainly the words: "Made in Israel."

the yogurt in my fridge has got more culture than the United States
Joke

I'm sure another alien race would be interested in our works of art, the music we've created, the sports we have designed for ourselves. There are some amazing cultural things we have come up with. we have great sporting events that have the whole world watching. Amazing buildings all over the planet. Ok maybe America hasn't provided the world with our finest cultural movements on the grand scale of things , it is still a relatively new country.
I mean the church in my village is older than the United States. In her short time America has provided us with some amazing cinema,amazing music,and entertainment.

MOST people are idiots and can be convinced to follow one trend or another. the MTV generation really showed the PTB how they could use music and pop culture to control the new generation. Hip hop has been turned into a tool for that purpose. dont blame the medium it started out like all good intentions as a way to communicate a message.

As for any aliens if they are benevolent they would pity us, and if there malevolent they will abuse our weakness. On a serious note we need to stop idolizing celebs as if the sun shines out of their A..

But lets be real nobody want to hear this. we have become too lazy and want the quick fix drive through instant microwave solution. not going to happen and as such we are screwed. Thats why the bad guys will always win, they want it more than we do.

Amerioca is center of the universe. /sarcasm

Aliens of many kind can't sleep or eat without news of Kanye West or America.
All mightyfull galactic empires are worried if they don't get their fresh hip-hop cd's.

C'mon are Americans so egocentric they think first place on Earth where aliens look is America?

The aliens hate materialistic culture and blind faith in bits of paper called money. That's beyond their ability to understand.

Lets face it if an alien civ was to visit they'd scope out earth and stay clear of the major nations and probably opt for first contact in a traditional neutral country like Switzerland or Ireland

i dont think they would be so stupid as to contact the USA and piss off half the world. Same with contacting Russia or China. Imagine that the americans would probably declare war on them for being commies.

This nonsense they'd contact the USA first is pure egocentrism.
