The Renegade

If Santa is reading my blog, he may wish to note that Mr Perryperson's Philosophy Football site is selling a Karl Kautsky t-shirt, and that I'm a svelte XL.

It says:
"Emancipation of their class appears to them a foolish dream. It is football which moves them and to which their material means are devoted."

Supporting almost every football team is a bit of a foolish dream these days. However, if Karl had spent his mid-teens in Nottingham in the late 1970s, his quote would have been more apposite then than it is now.

Yea... but he would have probably gone to watch County.

yep, he would have been a County fan.

believe or not, I spotted the same t shirt and was going to post the same type of special pleading post (different shirt size, though).

I think I'll just link to your post instead. ;-)
