Almost a decade ago, I wrote a post on my long-standing theory about why Hollywood depicts businesspeople as evil:
…it only makes sense that if your only employment experience with business, big or otherwise, is working for the entertainment industry or the ad business, you’re not going to have much appreciation for how a real business, where you have to actually develop and manufacture things that people go out and willingly buy, and has to be run by people with a talent for business (not murder and skullduggery), actually works. It’s actually quite similar to the reason that life in the military is rarely depicted accurately. They have no real-life experience.
This morning, Glenn made a related observation on the current pervruption in media and politics:
…it’s easy to see why lefties think “rape culture” is everywhere. In their world and institutions, it is.
It’s also part of general projection of the Left.
