Notably: Joe Louis won the world heavyweight championship on this day in 1937, knocking out James Braddock in the eighth round in front of 60,000 people at Comiskey Park. The event made headlines in The New York Times: “Under the impact of Louis’ tremendous right punch to the jaw, Braddock, battered, bruised and bleeding, crashed limply to the canvas in the center of the ring was to be counted out as the session progressed by only 1 minute 10 seconds. Louis would remain champion until his retirement in 1949. Speaking of sports, this is also the day of the 1986 World Cup that the Argentinian Diego Maradona, in one of the most obviously fraudulent moments in the history of the game, hit a goal with his hand in a match against England. Equally fraudulent was what the vulgar and future (now late) cokehead called it “The Hand of God”.

In other words, the rise of cancel culture seems far less significant and worrisome than the rise of sellout culture. More and more people at the top of our social hierarchy seem ready to do anything, for anyone, as long as the money is enough. It’s not a purely partisan issue, although the sellout culture may be a bit more prevalent on the right than on the left. It’s still extraordinary, given Donald Trump’s bellows about America first, how members of his entourage — including Michael Flynn, his national security adviser, and Rudy Giuliani, his personal attorney — have been credibly accused, in some cases convicted, or even confessed to serving as paid agents of despotic foreign governments.
