Politicians have gotten wise to the corporate game of diverting the public’s attention using sports. They have realized that swaying public opinion during sporting events was a way to further divide the country and tear down unity for the sake of the political power and corporate profit gang war against the people.

Never in this nation’s history has the public been so duped by the wealthy as they are now. The idolization of celebrity athletes and national sports teams by full grown men of voting age was a brilliant diabolical plan to extract wealth and votes from a drunken, dumbed down people.

Sporting games in the US became popular a decade before and at the turn of the 20th century. Baseball formed in 1869 followed by Basketball in 1891. By 1917, hockey made an entrance and then professional football started in the 1920s. Between 1869 and the 1920s, the Second Industrial Revolution rose in the US bringing in mass production, telecommunications, transportation and the steel and oil industries.

As wealth accumulated in the hands of a few, the working class were introduced to sporting events to keep them occupied from corporate negotiations and bargaining for worker rights. This is also around the time liquor was prohibited and then re-legalized by the Feds. However, a decade or so later, the stock market crashed, and the Great Depression started.

Once the nation recovered from the Depression, the wealthy began scheming. Throughout the 50s and 60s, the middle class grew exponentially as the wealthy was still reeling from their losses. The plot of the wealthy was not to infiltrate the government or overthrow it by any post world war retaliation but turn to the public and cast a spell on them that would distract them from their priorities in life: family, work, and political livelihood.


Quietly, corporations and the wealthy began pouring money into television and the sporting events. Major leagues blossomed and sports spilled into the college level as a tool for recruiting. Underground betting rackets grew and so did legal betting parlors that were regulated by the government. From horse racing to Major League Baseball to boxing, sports betting became an addiction for many financially well-off people, inviting the low-income class later. “US sports betting market expected to be worth over $40 billion by 2030.

Into the 70s and 80s, sports became even more popular as top performing leagues such as the NFL and the NBA started collecting more spectators. Cities, states and schools built large stadiums and companies began sponsoring teams and certain athletes. The games became more addicting as the events were dramatized, and advertising, marketing, and media rights came into play over the television airways.

Sports marketed to the working man for their enjoyment over the weekends as they rested from their labors. “Seventy percent of Americans watch live sports.” The spotlights were on MVPs and players with the best records as the teams became household names and branched off into rival teams by state and regions. More men found identity in their team picks and loyalty by purchasing merchandise and buying season tickets to the games. They know more about their idols’ stats than they did about investing, entrepreneurship, or needed trades.

After the 1980s, men were full-blown addicts to sports and the market had them hooked, line and sinker. “The largest audience are 30–85-year-olds holding 56 percent of the market.” The big major leagues took the place of weekend drives and leisurely family outings, lazy fishing days among friends and a community game of cards or game night. The weekends were made for sports on televisions or trips to the city stadium. But unfortunately, sports were not only a highly addictive distraction from the social changes at the time, but it turned into corporate profiteering at the expense of young males.

Competition became fierce from suburban high schools to rural farm communities and the urban streets. Young men turned from serious academic focus and personal ingenuity to becoming a star athlete. They idolized super athletes and learned their stats better than they knew their homework assignments. Grown men follow athletes and teams like a religion; betting for and proudly quoting teams and player stats. Marriages started to crumble, family ties were broken, and neighbors had beef with one another over team conflicts. Though it was not that serious, the impact of sports diminished the male ability to care about what was most important in their lives.

Today, the sport industry is nothing more than a modern-day plantation and exploitation of young men for money. Major league team owners and managers are banking billions of dollars in revenue from sports exploitation. “In 2018, the North American sports market had a value of about 71.06 billion U.S. dollars. This figure rose to 83.1 billion by 2023. The market is composed of the segments gate revenues, media rights, sponsorships and merchandising.”

Cities are neglecting needed infrastructure to build massive stadiums with state-of-the-art amenities to pleasure families who have become subjects to the spell cast on them. “In times when the country has a strong and stable economy, with high levels of disposable income, this allows consumers to spend more on leisure activities, including attending sporting events.”

Instead of putting that energy and money into community building and political organizing or even school, teachers conferences, fathers – and sadly, many stay-at-home mothers – have their time occupied with afterschool sports and competition among their neighbors’ kids. Literally, the obsession has parents fighting at little league and high school sporting events.

Currently, people have been brainwashed more so into sports than they are into bettering their own lives through political interest. Meanwhile, corporations, and politicians are taking full advantage of the docile public as they are drowned in sports and drinking. They see that their plot worked to lullaby the public to sleep as they slowly take away worker rights, civil rights, and personal freedoms.
