I have watched a few episodes of the television program "Outsourced." The setting is an American, Todd, running a call center in India for a novelty products company (which are probably made in China, but that's not part of the show).
I have gotten a kick out of the casting and the humor created from the many cultural differences between the Americans and the Indians. For the most part, the Indians are characterized as living somewhat modest, moral lives. At least they are as compared to any of the Westerners portrayed in the show.
What disturbs me, and what may ultimately cause me to be unable to enjoy this comedy, is that the Americans, along with one Australian, are caricatured as importers of their immorality. In varying degrees, they are not interested in honoring the modesty of the host culture. The very products, which are for the most part rude and vulgar, that the Indian call center employees have to market are shocking to them. But Todd encourages them to shake that off and make the sales.
Todd is also attracted to one of his employees. Even though their relationship maintains some respectability, the "interludes" into Todd's imaginations indicate that he has as a goal a sexual relationship.
It saddens me, indeed, that this has become the image that American entertainment wants to provide the world. Those same good folks who cry aloud that any Christian witness is merely the attempt to "impose your morality" on them are certainly not shy about imposing their immorality on everyone else. Those same good folks who decry every attempt of Americans to stand up against totalitarianism as interfering with another nation's "autonomy" have no shame when it comes to assaulting their moral autonomy with immorality.
It is a shame that the most well-known American export is immorality.
