      Britain dismantled its own empire at the behest of the United States. The US pressured all European colonial empires to grant independence to their colonies before the communists could organize revolutions against colonial rule instead. By turning their colonies into free democratic states before they could be taken over by commies, the US gained allies in the UN while minimizing the spread of global communism.

      Britain agreed with the strategy, so even though it lost its prestige as a global empire, it helped preserve international order by keeping communism from spreading more than it had.

          Britain could have said no. The price for that refusal would've been America looking to its own needs first and leaving Europe to the mercy of the Russians. Which it actually tried to do, at first, but Britain begged America to stay and shore up European defenses because Britain and France were both materially exhausted from the war and would have no hope of stopping the Russians if they decided to keep going West.

          For the same reason that no one rises up and kills the leaders of our Western democracies in the current day. Because the populous can be fooled into thinking they are in control of their government when actually the entire political process is stage managed by oligarchical power structures.
          In a European colony it is easy for the Soviet Union to fund some radical and for that radical to gain traction amongst a populous that can see a very visible foreign power structure controlling their country. But in the choas and confusion that is democracy, the CIA reigns king, and the local population is none the wiser.

        what a shame that the US fought on the wrong side, and never finished off the soviets when Patton was yelling at his superiors for permission to do exactly that, knowing the real threat was always the wild golems the banking carteI tunnelers had unleashed on the world with no interest in controlling.

    This is mostly due to two things. At the time especially, coffee was not popular in the UK and eating a decently sized breakfast wasn't either. So a culture of breaking for tea and snacking vs eating larger meals and drinking coffee before work developed. Because tea doesn't have as much caffeine you need to break more often and need to do this a lot on a long film shoot (usually 12-14 hour days). James Cameron was a truck driver before going into film and comes from a work culture where breaking isn't common and accepted.

          To be fair they did have a very good creative environment back then for film and theatre were a lot of lower to middle-class creative types got to actually work in the industry before it become what it is today, a play ground for the mostly talentless privileged few.

      Is working with union workers always that bad? I've never had to work with any, but everyone I know says they're the laziest ones and you often have to go over their work to make sure they did it right.

        It's not so much the union itself as the people involved not being invested in the work. But of course being in a union makes it more likely that you'll end up on a job you're not personally invested in.

        I've worked with union terms that are excited about the job and do great work. I've worked with non union teams who phone it in. It's always like pulling teeth when people don't really want to be there.

      There is a common element of it being a joke (that the British themselves are in on, combined with their own self-loathing) however, you get both 1) a bunch of morons who don't get that and in an attempt to fit in do it seriously, and 2) a bunch of people that do have a genuine fixation of hate against them. As to which causes the most seething then I would guess Britain, if only for places like India where even if only 10% of the population hates Britain then that still accounts for massive numbers. Britain just seems to attract hate from all sorts of groups: people from countries they had colonized, the far-left, the far-right, 'Irish' Americans, Argentina for the Falklands, from what I understand Russian propaganda paints Britain as some uberpowerful enemy.

    The making of video was very interesting, you can still find it on youtube I think.

    Basically Cameron was being his regular butthole self and it rubbed the crew wrong, they had a different work culture as american studios so it would always clash with Cameron's wishes. Like they would have tea time break and Cameron would flip out as to why everybody has to stop working in the middle of the afternoon.
