Frankly, I thought this article was pretty ridiculous. I get Schmid's point that "Captain America and Superman went to war with Nazi Germany before America did" but i think it completely misses the mark. Art and culture is a representation of what people are feeling, otherwise it wouldn't be popular. It can absolutely influence public opinion, but it needs something to grab hold of to wiggle its way into mainstream culture.
As an American, I am also pretty offended that he thinks it can be boiled down to something so silly. I did not like this article.
