The

I feel language is a tad bit overrated ( I know you aren't pointing to that specifically but I have seen a lot of Chinese people making the language argument)

Look at Korea for example they have some of the best movies in the world (in recent times imo)

I barely watched Hollywood and movies in general but after seeing some Korean movies I was hooked

But barely anyone knows Korean
But it has a market, japanese anime in Japanese has a market outside of Japan, Bollywood has a market outside of SA, Asian Horror movies has a market

So I believe if you can sustain an industry in home market and the market is big enough for you to create big budget movie you are in the game

Next step is quality that's where Chinese movies that I watch are a let down

They try to copy Hollywood to attract US market but they lose the touch

Cause if I want to watch Hollywood Id rather watch Proper Hollywood

I came to see authentic Chinese movie made for Chinese audiences and not a mash up

look at Jackie Chan, IP man
Like successful artists in west

They're authentic! They try to represent Chinese culture

You need that to be successful, quality, authenticity

Language isn't that big of an issue imo
You should take a look at the Chinese animation industry. Seems like they took your words to the tee.

Even if a stable and authoritarian Hindu ethnostate could be established, that would only make the upper castes more powerful.

I have already noted that India is a classic Third World country: a thin, rich layer rules a vast majority of the desperate. The rulers have little motivation to improve the lot of the lower castes, as doing so would cause the current rulers to lose power. So the probability is high that India will remain in the Third World.

If the Brahmins and the other high castes got more powerful because India transformed into an authoritarian Hindu theocracy, the country would be even more likely to remain in the Third World.
To be fair to India, Caste System was not ingrained throughout India before the British institutionalized it for administrative purposes. They elevated the practice to a more powerful social norm.

Ah man this reminded me of the martial race stupidity in SA which indirectly links with castism but it's ways too OT

I wish we had a thread on colonism...

There's a problem in the chinese movie industry that they've got to solve (even though I'm not sure what exactly)

I'm tired of getting hyped up for a new scifi movie in China only to be let down by terrible acting/cgi/plots/cringe.

The only one that exceeded my expectations was The 800, man that movie was something else.

Really?

genetic evidence suggest there had been almost no interbreeding between ancestors of members of different castes in much of India for a period of over 2000 years, despite their communities co-existing continually in a state of interdigitation.

China has never had legitimate acting or even voice acting business sector till VERY recently. Like as recent as 3 years ago and even then it's still not up to par with the other South Asian countries or the US. But if the gaming and animation scenes are anything to look at then it seems to be improving really fast. Just give it a couple more years to mature a bit. The music sector also went through this maturity stage.

Right, the pyramid of needs...

All this soft power will be the work of the post 90s and 00 generation.

China today is probably around where the Koreans were in the early 2000's in terms of media, before their decency limit was removed.

Some tangible barrier to moving up a tier or two are the establishment of a nationwide rating system (G, PG, R, NC-17 etc.). And then after that, the booby and sex ban will be lifted, based on how effective the rating system was implemented. Chinese movies are probably already violent enough, judging by Operation Red Sea.

So perhaps another 10 years and we will see a secondary explosion of content. It will coincide with control of Taiwan and per capita GDP of around $25K USD in today's purchasing power. .

Already, the amount o Chinese content on Netflix has vastly expanded in the last 5 years.

If that is the case, then India is even more screwed.

If caste-ism has been practiced for over 2000 years, then Hindu caste ideology rivals the teachings of Confucian or the Ten Commandments of Jesus Christ. These ideas underpin all of society in East Asia and the West.

Can you imagine trying to overturn such fundamental ideas?

In India, how can Hinduism hope to overturn caste and replace this with a Confucian or Western meritocratic ideal?

India needs it's own revolution to overthrow feudalism at first
