  1. When I was watching the 7-8 minutes that killed Brazil, I thought to myself that maybe this could be the spark for a (quasi-)revolutionary event, after all the Brazilian hatred for FIFA and what it stands for. But then I saw them applauding the Germans.

    Perhaps the Olympics are a better venue to stage a revolution. At least football as a sedative has been kicked out of the rulers’ hands.

    1. It’s no accident that competitive sports, between teams and then individuals, first took off in the mid-nineteenth century (when Marx was doing his extended research into capitalism). Excellent training ground for the spirit of competition.
