It is only a matter of time. Recently, Frances Haugen has started to campaign against a prominent propaganda machine (“Facebook” [or “Meta”]). Yet she is probably also aware of the situation among other propaganda machines … in particular: what is perhaps the most prominent propaganda machine of all (“Google” [or “Alphabet”]).

Cultural proximity is the theory that claims people have “…the tendency to prefer media from one’s own culture or the most similar possible culture.” (Straubhaar, 2003, p. 85).

It makes sense that America has such a large impact on Australia, both our cultures are western and have similar values, and our government tends to follow the decisions of America. Alas, the term ‘Americanisation’ could be used.

Right around 2010, Paranormal Activity 2 came out. I remember being at my friend’s house, and we would watch it on her TV screen with maybe 10 or so others.
