I do think that there is a "common" popular culture that
endangers the unique qualities of differing cultures. This
popular culture, spread primarily through television, movies,
popular music, and fast food restaurants, seems to provide
the lowest common denominator. I don't often find this addressed
in discussions on culture. What do you think?
Nancy, I wonder if we are seeing, in this "common" popular culture, a
new culture emerging. Are cultures seen as stagnant, never changing? I
see our culture as a massive kalaidoscope, constantly changing from the
movement and emotion of the people that make it up. And if a new
culture is emerging, it is probably logical that it would start from the
lowest common denominator, whenever you build you start from the bottom.
