TV Football Jock Sniffers. Another State Subsided Method to keep us Distracted.

Fuuuuhhhhhhhtttball: The Modern Two Minutes’ Hate

November 9, 2012
By Eric Peters

Strong passions have to be released somehow. Else, they might erupt in unpredictable ways.

The state understands this – and desires that strong passions be released in a harmless – to the state – way. Enter the modern, near universal obsession – in particular, the male obsession – with fuuuhhhhhhhhhttttttttttball and organized, mass spectacle sports generally. These things are the actualization of the fictional Two Minutes’ Hate in Orwell’s 1984. A means by which the passions – the frustrations and anger of men in particular – are diverted and dissipated. In order that they aren’t directed at anything actually important – such as the ever-increasing control exercised over men by the state. The stifling of independent action, the punishment of deviation from any official orthodoxy… and most of all, the relentless suppression of independent judgment and self-reliance.

The systematic thwarting, simply put – of a normal man’s inclination to be a man.

The average man has virtually no real control over his life in modern America. He must Submit and Obey at every turn, from the moment he awakes to the moment he lays his head down on the pillow at night. He must never raise his voice, at work or in public. He must avoid confrontation at all costs. (This lesson, in particular, is really being hammered home to today’s boys – who are told in no uncertain terms by the authorities that they cannot even defend themselves when attacked by a bully. And the boys’ fathers are told they must teach them to accept this.)

He must stew in silent, impotent fury as a cop half his age lectures him about “buckling up for safety” in front of his kids. Or as he submits to having his wife and kids get fondled by useless-eater (and probably pedophilic) blue-shirted poltroons at the airport. He must put up with being told what to do – and even worse, what not to do – by smarmy little busybodies, stretchpants-wearing fraus. From the PTA to the DMV to the HOA, he is hectored and hemmed in at every turn.

if this were true then you

if this were true then you would need a season to last the whole year. Football was being played long before we see the problems that are here now. This post is hogwash.. what you get picked last in kickball or something?

That was a very insightful

article, IMO, but one which I'm sure will produce a substantial degree of rancor among the men who read it, and don't like the truth of it.

lol.....you don't understand

lol.....you don't understand it and it is not worth trying to explain. To put it simply, your opinion is wrong.
