Political Opinions of the SB
I came across this op-ed in Counterpunch and thought I'd share it and see what you thought about his comparisons between the NFL, corporatism, and global American influence. Here's a snippet but read the whole article.
Re: Political Opinions of the SB
That snippet reminded me of a conversation I had with a German professor. I told him I was thinking of going back to the States to live and teach. He looked at me in disbelief and wondered how I could live somewhere where violence, car chases, explosions, and the like were common occurrences. This is an extreme example by a somewhat sheltered person, but I think the point stands. For many people outside the US, they see so much of our media that they think they know what it's like to live here, never mind that our projections of ourselves and our culture in the media is a far cry from the truth (even, and perhaps especially, "reality TV").
