The Super-“Bull”, Seattle Seahawks Coach, and 911

Every year I reach peak frustration with the “hive mind” as the Super-“Bull” approaches. Let me be clear, I don’t cheer when Seattle’s corporate team wins a game, I cheer when Seattle gives its workers a $15.00 per-hour minimum wage. The overt militarism and commercialism, combined with America’s “hive mind” make for a textbook propaganda […]

Super-Bull: Corporate Sports and Fascism

Super-Bull: Corporate Sports and Fascism

Being as though today is some kind of quasi-national holiday called Super Bowl Sunday, we should look at the relationship between sports and Fascism. I was going to single out American football in particular, but while thinking about it I realize it goes down to the big money in college games as well. Think about […]

What Would George Orwell Say About The Super Bowl?

What Would George Orwell Say About The Super Bowl?

I can’t figure out whether I am more amused, annoyed, agitated or just plain disappointed by the way fans relate to huge sporting events. Mind you, I really don’t have a problem with athletes on the field of play, it’s the moronic behavour of crazed sports fans that just makes me shake my head in […]

  • Review: “The Socratic Method” – By Farnsworth
    Review: The Socratic Method By Ward Farnsworth Many months ago, I decided I needed to get into some classic books that I had never read in school. One such book was “The Republic” by Plato. Well, that didn’t last long. I was overwhelmed by the archaic language and ancient Greek names. I can be pretty […]
  • Reviews: Sea Monsters & Sasquatch
    Regular readers might know that I can’t just do dystopian analysis of current events all the time; sometimes I have to get into something completely different. With regard to that, I have reviewed a few Bigfoot books, and picked up some classic novels as well as books on philosophy. Today we take a look at […]
  • Review: Ukraine In The Crossfire
    I was very pleased to get a copy of “Ukraine In The Crossfire”, by Chris Kaspar De Ploeg. This book catalogs the rise of the nationalist far-right Nazis in Ukraine, as well as their well known WW 2 history. This book is an important reference for the set-up of Ukraine as a U.S./NATO pawn, who […]
  • Review: “States Of Emergency”
    There is some surprisingly good analysis appearing that goes a long way to explaining just how we ended up in this global meltdown, and from several sources I am reading, it appears to be on purpose. One such resource is the new book “States Of Emergency” by a Dutch professor named Kees Van Der Pijl. […]
  • The Civil War In The United States – By Marx & Engels
    I should start by saying that this is the first I have read of Marx, and honestly I haven’t studied deep into the American Civil War, so this book was very interesting to me. The book consists of written exchanges between Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, with a few others. It also includes passages from […]
