Love Ali, Not The Concussions A Brutal Society Cherish

A society given to brutality needs brutes. Doing very bad things to heads, especially the heads of children, will help that way. It’s not a coincidence that the great age of Roman plutocracy was also the great age of gladiators, or often deadly chariot races (see the movie Ben Hur as reference there! Chariot races craze replaced thoroughly the rest of Roman intellectual activity, all the way to the time, in the Seventh Century, when the Arab Muslims smashed the empire).

I always esteemed the boxer who grew up as Cassius Clay, who was buried today, after decades of neurological decay.

In spite of the fact he decided he would become a Muslim named Muhammad Ali (after the Prophet and his son-in-law and cousin). I have something against people who decides that pre-Medieval systems of thought can teach higher morality. But Ali fought against the Vietnam War. He caused a scandal by observing:”I have nothing against them, Vietcong”. Then he refused to be drafted, but did not flee the USA. At the time, March 1966, that was tantamount to treason.

Appearing for his ordered induction into the U.S. Armed Forces on April 28, 1967, in Houston, Ali refused three times to step forward at the call of his name. An officer warned him he was committing a felony punishable by five years in prison and a fine of $10,000. Once more, Ali refused to budge when his name was called. As a result, he was arrested. On the same day the New York State Athletic Commission suspended his boxing license and stripped him of his world heavyweight champion title.

Bang Those Heads Hard, It's Glorious. Ali Smashes Foreman's Brains In Congo, Regaining (His) World Heavyweight Title.

Ali was denied a boxing licence in every American state, while his passport was confiscated. Thus Ali could not fight between the age of 25 and 29. By 1971, Ali’s position against the Vietnam War was widely shared, and courts started to reverse his conviction, and various official abuse he was submitted to. Thus Ali helped cognition in the US, and thus civilization, significantly.

The rest of Ali’s boxing career was glorious. However, thousands of blows to Ali’s head made him victim of a Parkinson-like disease. He just died from it. Ali recognized the nature of his disease, and its origin. His slightly younger brother, Rahman Ali, who, himself, had 20 strokes revealed years ago that his brother could barely speak and was unable to recognize him anymore.

So Why Are So Many Children Forced Into Concussion Sports? Is Not That Child Abuse?

Cassius Clay started boxing at age 12. He died at 74, after years of increasing ailment from his concussion induced illness.

Some will say Clay/Ali had a great life, thanks to all these concussions (Ali himself said something not far from that). They could point to Paulson, once a professional football player, who became the chairman of Goldman Sachs, then, as had already happened with Robert Rubin, Treasury Secretary. As such Paulson gave orders not just to the Republican candidate for the presidency, but also to Barack Obama, who agreed.

My thesis is this: great Lords need great brutes to implement their rule. A solution is to tape their heads, compress the forebrains, build super brutes this way. A number of tribes, countries, societies did this, including in the Americas.

Similarly, concussion sports help to decerebrate the individuals most lethal to established order; young males. Hence the popularity of American football, Hockey, all sports requiring helmets because of constant shocks,

Concussions are only part of the problem. Another is drug abuse, or even time abuse to entice children into competition sports. Much of this happens in many countries, not just Russia, but also the USA (remember BALCO?), where the empire is mighty and nasty. In Russia, the FSB, which used to be known as the KGB, where Putin made his career, all the way to the top, is apparently involved in filling up athletes with illicit drugs, to help Russia win lots of medals at the Olympics, and other international competitions.

The USA is better organized than that: the intelligence agencies are not involved with drugs that way (they have higher pursuits). No need. They prefer to be involved with the so-called “social networks”, which one should perhaps know as the “spy networks”.

So celebrate the Cassius Clay then known as Muhammad Ali. But remember what made him live, increasingly, over decades, more and more, him who like to talk so well, like a thoroughly boiled vegetable. What killed Ali was the love of a particular society for concussions, and all the sports bringing as much concussions, and horrendous abuse, as possible. Professional American football players have been reported to have very short lifespans and very bad neurological diseases (not just Parkinson, Alzheimer and AMLS…) The subject is rather controversial, but not new: a century ago, just for that reason, a serious effort was conducted to make American football unlawful. After all, gladiator combat is unlawful, even in the US.

In any case, all these spectacle sports teach by example. And the example concussion sports teach is that monstrosity pays. And it pays very well.

    Yes the abuse in this kind of sports Is clearly a conspiracy of the oligarchs. But Hollywood made an anti-concussion movie, so moods are changing

  2. dominique deux Says:

    Interestingly, “concussion”, in French, means corruption.

    • Gmax Says:

      Really? Wow. Amazing. Destroying brains is the most violent corruption imaginable. It is an industry in all US universities. Alcohol, drugs, PC madness, SAFE SPACES, whatnot… All widely encouraged, but in a sneaky way

    • Patrice Ayme Says:

      J’en apprend tous les jours… Merci!😉

    In college we played flag football, it was just as fun to play as contact football. If the NFL and all contact football switched, it would be just as exiting to watch, and maybe more, because it would be a total speed and skill game. The big huge players would be out a job though, and would have to move to wrestling or some other sport.

    Boxing could ban all head punching.

    • Patrice Ayme Says:

      Indeed, absolutely. There are even studies and propositions to reduce head banging in soccer. Another point is that the huge monsters are obvious all drugged out. Countries that test the most against drugs have problems winning. The postergirl of that being France, with her systematic hyper intrusive controls.
      Boxing could use helmets, or then no more gloves as used to be the case…

      Computations in Switzerland have shown acceleration on the head can be up to 200 gs in hockey… All boys I know who took hockey seem to quickly lose any spark…

      • Kevin Berger Says:

        En parlant de foot (“soccer”), je m’amuse à penser que les débordements de l’euro, présents, et à venir (situation sécuritaire en France tendue à en claquer, avec les FDO complètements rincées, entre manifs loi travail, extrême gauche de rue en sur-régime, et terros qui se font attendre), vont faciliter le Brexit™, la proverbiale goutte d’eau quoi.
        Après un rapide coup d’oeil panoramique sur la presse brit des deux derniers jours, je constate un vrai festival de repli tribal et de syndrome de l’assiégé, en plus de l’obligatoire venin envers la France; ça fulmine contre les continentaux, chez les godons, en ce moment.
        Après, je reste persuadé de la grande indépendance de choix et du complet respect de la souveraineté populaire, lors des grands votes mettant en jeu des intérêts anglos fondamentaux – cf. Québec, Ecosse -, donc, qui sait? Le petit peuple des little englanders lecteurs du DM est en plein émoi, en tous cas, tant mieux.

        Mais, quand même. Euro 2016 = nouveau coup de butoir au système, à commencer par la France?

    What is interesting is that in contact sports, increasing protection has actually increased injury… players of American “Football” have far more health issues than people who play rugby. Reason for this is that human beings absolutely suck at risk-reward calculation… if something gives us means to go additional 50%, we will go full 100% above previous limit… or even more.

    And of course, constant concussions lead to health problems… just as drug usage. But we are all on drugs, thanks to refined sugars that food industry uses to cause food addiction.

      “What is interesting is that in contact sports, increasing protection has actually increased injury…”

      IIUC, and don’t quote me on that because I’m a slug, bare-knuckles boxing was a bloody spectacle (bones against bones means cuts, I guess), but fights went on and on and on, and seldom concluded by a TKO (supposedly, most bouts ended when one boxer was too tired to go on and quit).
      Gloves were introduced not only as a way to protect the fragile hand bones (wrappings already were present for that), but above all, as a way to punch harder, especially to the head, and to allow for shorter matches ending in KO… and, in the process, trading facial bruises and cuts (apparently, the human face is well evolved to take punches, with the nose cartilage or the eye orbital bone breaking before any serious injury is sustained) for long-term brain damage.

        I was thinking more of a chronic injury. Bare-knuckle boxing might result in cuts and broken hand bones, but precisely because of that blows will not have been has hard as in “modern” boxing, which means less possibility of brain damage. And it is brain damage which is more problematic of the two.

        “Gloves were introduced not only as a way to protect the fragile hand bones (wrappings already were present for that), but above all, as a way to punch harder, especially to the head, and to allow for shorter matches ending in KO… and, in the process, trading facial bruises and cuts (apparently, the human face is well evolved to take punches, with the nose cartilage or the eye orbital bone breaking before any serious injury is sustained) for long-term brain damage.”

        Exactly. But you don’t even need KO for that, just the fact that blows, especially to the head (skull is hard, so it is not very smart to strike it hard with a bare hand), will have become harder as protection improved, is enough to account for increasing brain damage.

        • Kevin Berger Says:

          Yeah, same thing for gumshields, thinking about it. In any case, professional boxers are disposable, that is very clearly the case, otherwise, the long term brain injuries risk would be acknowledged openly, and they would have to wear headgear just like amateur fighters. But spectacle and money rank much higher.

          • Patrice Ayme Says:

            The point of concussions propaganda is to make brain bashing glorious, an end in itself… The (very upper class) youths I know well practicing brain bashing hockey (one white, the other 3/4 Asian) have a characteristic DULL look… And lost their power of intelligent conversation…

          • picard578 Says:

            Indeed. That is problem with values that society is built upon.

  5. tom Says:

    Interesting piece of info where the name comes from. Mohamed Ali or Mehmet Ali was also the sultan of Egypt in the 1800s, a legendary butcher. So the boxer’s reasoning looks self-contradictory : You despise slavery, yet you change your religion to follow a religion that actively practices it on a huge scale. And taking the name of a butcher looks to me like someone who adores say Germany and wants to be german, so instead of taking a name from one of the famous or maybe not so famous german names, he changes his name to …. Adolf Hitler.

    • Kevin Berger Says:

      You might be looking too much into this.
      AFAIK, Cassius Clay first converted to “islam” through the Nation of Islam, which is above all a racist, Black-supremacist UFO cult with superficial muslim trappings (and one reason I am ambivalent, if not indifferent to CC/MA; his stance about some issues were worthwhile and indeed quite courageous and one can only respect that… actively inserting himself inside the duelling racisms at the core of the US project, well, not so much).

      He later converted to sunni islam proper, same trajectory as Malcom Little/X, though it didn’t cost him his life.
      Very possibly “Mohammed Ali” was just that, a stereotypical name chosen for how “muslim” it sounded, a bit akin to those underclass “African” or ebonics names. All in all, its more about identity crisis and confusion, more about “sticking it to the Man” than anything else.

      • Patrice Ayme Says:

        I understood Cassius Clay conversion to Islam as a reaction to the mental enslavement of “blacks” to Christianism in the USA. I thought that was not very important, and never heard him pushing Islamist ideas. Ali, the Fourth Caliph, should be famous mostly for burning apostates alive…
