MUNSON'S GAZETTA: Marxism,BCS, Broncos and Horned Frogs


Karl Marx posited that in the intense(and inevitable) struggle between the workers("proletariat") and their capitalist overseers that there would be a period where the workers, unable to grasp the singularity of their common plight, would be pitted against one another and thus, for a time, disregard the historical conflict and act contrary to their own self-interest(which he defined as their "class" interest as workers). Scarcity of resources would force them to fight each other to survive rather than attack the root cause i e capitalism.

In somewhat the same fashion the BCS was able to pit Broncos, Horned Frogs and others against each other, fighting an internecine battle as non-AQ's, disparaging each others schedules, pulling each other down in an attempt to obtain the (artificially) scarce resource of a  BCS game. Non-AQ'a warily watched one another, gloating in the schadenfreude of another's loss, despair at another's victory.

One hopes(and indeed, somewhat senses) that the current matchup of Boise State/TCU may tend to dissolve that inherent tension. As I read the discussions, and especially the initial ones, there was a sense of not just respect but an understanding that our football opponents were not our enemy, that this system which exploits and appropriates in a self-perpetuating solpsism cannot stand, is the enemy, must "wither away" so a new one can be born.

Just as Marx urged the workers to  confront a dead industrial megacomplex, so we must stay united with our Horned Frog brothers, Cougars,Utes and all non-AQ's who stand despised by the running dogs of the  BCS cartel. We are to become a United People's Democratic Republic and move forward as the vanguard of a new proletariat, steeped in the honor of the workers, rejoicing in the struggle which will lead to a brave new world where all can compete fairly, nay, even for a National Championship!

To paraphrase ol'  Crazy Karl: "Fans Unite! You have nothing to lose but your(BCS) chains!"
