Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, it could not be clearer than that.

Absolutely right on the reinforcement effect of mass media. But the close local experiencesare is much more important than TV. Actully, what comes from HOllywood is much more importnat thtn what you find in the news.

So, the first reinforcer is friends and surrounding. Second are movies, TV series, myths in the  strict sense (and we have fair movies right now...all those hateful HOllywood liberal..you know why they attack them so much) and third the elite-news stablishment that you mention. that was precisely my point. Why they are importatn. You just eleaborated the point  hundred of times better than I could.

So Hitler at the beginning was only a puppet. Only later he could create the feedback..and still it was a feedback. Dead on.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
