This sentence was initially added as a translation of sentence #3416373La usonanoj volis altrudi la ideon laŭ kiu libro aŭ filmo devus esti konsiderataj kiel iu ajn komerca objekto. Ĉar komprenis ili, ke flanke de la armeo, de la diplomataro kaj de la komerco, ankaŭ ekzistas kulturmilito. Batalo, ke ili deziras gajni samtempe pro kialoj noblaj – Usono ĉiam opiniis, ke siaj valoroj estas universalaj – kaj malpli noblaj: la formatigo de la spiritoj estas la plej bona rimedo por forvendi la usonajn produktojn. Konsideru, ke la kino prezentas la plej gravan usonan eksportrangon, multe antaŭ ol la armiloj, la aeronaŭtiko aŭ la komputiko! El tio ilia volo altrudi la anglan kiel monda lingvo. Eĉ se oni notas de du jardekoj iom da regreso de ilia influo..

Americans wanted to impose the idea that a book or a movie should be considered the same as any commercial object. For they understood that besides the army, diplomacy and trade there is also a cultural war. It's a battle they intend to win both for noble reasons -- the United States has always felt that its values ​​are universal -- and less noble ones: the education of minds is the best way to sell American products. Consider that cinema represents their most important export, ahead of weapons, aerospace or computers! Hence their desire to impose English as a global language. Even if we can observe for the last two decades a decline in their influence.
