The document in view talks about the political forces of 1980s at play that led to shaping the culture we have today. The author believes that the local politics and political figures had a huge impact on the mind of the people at the time. In particular, they were widely influenced by the role models exhibited in the TV shows and movies like Ghostbusters, Die Hard and Rocky III etc. which were often a representative of strong political figures at the time effectively. Almost all of the content shown in the movies at the time encompassed the themes of a post racial Barack Obama in the presidential campaign, a direct rip-off of Ronald Reagan's Insistence and others etc. which were aimed only to attain audience’s courtesy and responsiveness, resulting in detrimental effects on the spectator’s thoughts. As a result, the spectators indulge into impulse voting and forming political thoughts and opinions as portrayed by the movie makers to feel closer to the political figures and ideologies the movies presented in some way.
I believe that 1980s was really as conservative as the author suggests. Today, a permanent impact has been left on the minds of the audiences of social media and mass media forums. Media now serves as a platform to integrate communication propensities which target all gender, age groups and ethnicities. Different popular websites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram give the audience’s a day to day update with unique images of heroes, action figures, models and actresses all over the world all the while, adhering to their regular attention; leading to a profound influence on their thinking patterns and behavior approaches. So, the young minds now rely more and more on the widely shown political agendas and models on TV shows to define their political ideologies instead of constructing their own thoughts.
