Your a good man Vince
Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

Eh, I try. But you are correct, we have to remember that whether we're far right fascist or far left hippie,we all bleed red, and we should let our differences be a source of strength, not weakeness.
And also that giant machines are just plain cool.

Well said, that is much deeper that some cool sounding line from a movie.

That is a pretty cut-and-dried explanation. I'm starting to see how it will work (or not).

It was nice.
Like a dramatization of Uncle Tom's Cabin.
With Romney as Simon Legree, and Obama as Tom.
...If uncle Tom had been a hungry wolverine with an early stage of rabies.
**** YEAH BARACK OBAMA
