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 Hidden History Of The Human Race
    As the plague season rolls on, my reading has (as a matter of sanity) drifted from hard-core political filth to more esoteric subjects. They have been quite a welcome distraction. For instance, I recently reviewed “Daydream Sunset” by Ron Jacobs, about counterculture in the 1970’s. (All reviews can be found at https://www.covertbookreport.com/ ) Then we […]
  • George And Barbara, A Couple Of Real Turkeys
    Flock of turkeys currently stalking our road *** Many years ago I was the caretaker of a 300-acre farm on the Columbia River in Oregon. The farms in the area were very isolated, with tons of wildlife. I planted corn and millet for game feed and the owners occasionally hunted there. Meanwhile, I grew huge […]
  • Review: “Surveillance Valley” By Yasha Levine
    Once in a while a book comes long that smacks you in the head and says: “This is whats really going on”. “Surveillance Valley – The Secret Military History Of The Internet” – by Yasha Levine, is just such a book. We live in an age of technical wonder, a quasi-magical age where information is […]
  • Review: “Breath” By James Nestor
    Review: “Breath” by James Nestor Every now and then I come across a book that I claim is the most important book I have read this year. Of course, I sometimes say that two or three times a year. However, one such book is “Breath – The New Science Of A Lost Art”, by James […]
  • Review: The Hunt For Zero Point – By Nick Cook
    In an effort to get a little distance from hardcore politics and history, I recently reviewed a book on the counterculture in the ’70’s and a great book on Bigfoot. Now comes a book on government research into antigravity and the “flying saucer” phenomenon. “The Hunt For Zero Point – Inside The Classified World Of […]
