" that doesn't mean Hollywood is just part of the intelligence apparatus."
You are literally correct, AC. THAT doesn't demonstrate that Hollywood is part of the intelligence apparatus. You would need more evidence, found by looking elsewhere.
I'd argue the opposite is correct. They aren't intelligent, just look at what they produce. A lot of it recycled stuff from years ago. Slap new actors in, new block buster movie. If they were really part of the intelligence arena they'd have far more compelling stuff for us and it would be irresistible. In short, they'd fire most of hollywood. They're too stupid and out of touch with reality.
I'd joke that maybe they'll bring back the Keystone Cops or 3 stooges... however they'd probably do it. Joke would be on me.
