In the aftermath I’ve seen lots of folks stepping up to defend
Encyclopedia Britannica(!) and Netflix. Maybe Greenblatt’s
statement isn’t the most artfully worded. If you want to point and
laugh, Nelson style, you can. Netflix is wildly successful…
it’s not just a brand, it’s a powerful cultural force, the kind
that can fill thrift stores after the launch of a show about
de-cluttering, when it’s not winning multiple Academy
But I think I understand what Greenblatt is getting at.
