The Weedy Mead Chronicles 130 Looking Down On Creation By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.07
We do not feel our habits, EXCEPT when we are in the process of ‘correcting’ them. So why should it be different when we are installing what we hope will become NEW habits? Answer:... More > because we are so good at believing things that happen not to be true. Before OR after breakfast .... And so, therefore, NOW, how to change a belief that happens to be untrue? And here there are other considerations, to do with POWER, and FAMILIARITY, and SAFETY. And some of this will seem a little SILLY .... Things familiar are safe BECAUSE they are familiar, not because they are SAFE. So ARGUING with them on the grounds that they don’t really make sense ... doesn’t really make SENSE. In the same kind of way, arguing with someone who takes EVERYTHING to be a matter of ‘safety’ that there are large swathes of life that are not to do with safety, doesn’t really make sense.< Less

More > 1986 (Western Australian Football League / WAFL). Using Marsh’s theory of the “illusion of violence”, the author links the cheer squad to the academic literature on British soccer hooligans, Italian ultras, and other soccer supporter groups from around the world. The book details “traditional”, “hot” support for West Perth Football Club among teenaged supporters from middle-class and working-class backgrounds. The findings conform to Armstrong and Hughson’s idea of fluid “post-modern” “neo-tribes” where affiliations are very loose and people can easily adjust their degree of commitment to a group and / or leave the group when their personal priorities change. The book also allows the reader to relive great WAFL matches and meet again key players from the era.< Less
