Pop-culture of a World Without WW1

At least in the US, the 20's saw the KKK become the largest it had ever been in the US, numbering in the millions.
Racism was quite the progressive cause back in the day. It was the cosmopolitan liberal Woodrow Wilson who reimposed segregation in the federal government.
 
Would Eurovision or Something similar would still exist?
Don't see why it wouldn't or couldn't, but its origins would be different. The World Cup and the Olympics were already a thing before WWI and international competitions of the kind were all the rage both prior to WWI and during the interwar period (where they really took a nationalist bent).
Eurovision was envisioned as a way to promote cooperation between European countries post WWII, but even in the absence of WW it is likely that a similar competition is envisioned once TV competitions become a thing.
 
Well, for starters, Hollywood wouldn't be considered the "Mecca of the Movies" and its influence wouldn't be as big as it is today. The World Wars basically killed the cinema industry in Europe and it never really recovered after that. Without them, Pop Culture wouldn't be so Hollywood-centric.
This is true, though it would still be a powerhouse. American films were already dominating European markets pre-WWI, with France and Italy being the two big exceptions. It is likely they will remain so in TTL dominating in their home markets and giving Hollywood fair competition in the rest of European markets and their language spheres.

There might be several Hollywoods around the world. Germany would still be one of the leading film producers in Europe.
 
Consider that up until 1979 in OTL, TV ratings for basketball were terrible, ranking below golf and tennis. In fact, up until Magic Johnson was recruited into the L.A. Lakers, the National Basketball association was expected to go bankrupt by 1985. So in the ATL, there is no professional basketball...

Consider without the exposure to European culture in the United States during the World Wars, American cuisine and fast food were pretty terrible. Consider that Jello casseroles would be considered the norm into the 1980s, with the military intervention in Central and South America, introducing Mexican food to most of America.

Plus they’ll probably be more focus on European customs/foods more than any cuisine from Latin America, East Asia and Middle Eastern foods being never rise up in Western World.

Plus the whole 1965 Immigrant act one never be passed in this world making it more European centric that no other race will be allowed on the US besides Europeans. Plus without the World wars, Germans cuisine and cultures will definitely replaced Spanish/ Hispanic language and cultures being the Second speaking besides English being the most common in U.S and maybe even German holidays will probably more important and relevant in TL US than OTL US.

Those will be European cuisines in TL US than the Multicultural US cuisine

Consider how Australia and New Zealand up until the late 1970s, enforced a "White Australia " policy, which was as racist as it sounds. As a result, consider that Italian and Greek food was considered exotic, with the majority eating diets to the British Isles (e.g. marmite, vegemite).

Plus with no World Wars and Famines happened to Greece and Italy. The population that won't be descended of the people who died OTL will be enormous likely immigrating to the United States, Italian colonies and yes even the two Anitpode.

Also likely with an even in New Zealand will probably violate its laws and to hear more European immigration to the native lands sooner, Australia will likely have more immigrants of the British isles because of no World Wars.


Plus Canada, South Africa and unfortunately Rhodesia will likely be up of its English Setter population into native lands like with the US did.
 
One thing that would happen is meat shortages, similar to the toilet paper and baby formula shortages. Consider that during the Great Depression and the 1970s there were meat shortages, with people stockpiling beef, pork and chicken.

Without immigration, to aid in farming and food production, as well as providing meatless alternatives (e.g. tofu, noodles, etc.), the shortages would certainly continue...
