The English and Football

The World Cup I feel most sorry for the English underclass whose lack of economic power disbars them from fully participating in a culture based on self actualisation through conspicuous conception. Enticed by multination corporations' advertising and sponsorship they attempt to overcome this humiliation through the purchase of cheap, third world produced, sporting apparel in order to try and forge a link between themselves and multi-milionare sportsmen. They hope this tenuous link will give them a sense of power and success that will obliterate their everyday reality of disempowerment and failure. England then lose 4-1 to Germany.
