I Can’t Prove This

The reason why folks instinctually believe that “empire” and all things “imperial” are bad is that they grew up watching Star Wars.

We feel bad about American cultural imperialism. I do, anyway.  But kids in Iran want jeans and rock n’ roll, whether we like it or not, right?

Since I’m a conservative of sorts, I’m saddened by the loss of local cultures.

Or am I?

Anyway, when folks like Shane Claiborne speak in hushed tones about “the abandoned places of empire”, aren’t the kids shuttering with thoughts of the Emperor?  Aren’t their little hearts burning with the hopes of joining the Rebel Alliance and blowing up the Death Star?
