He died when?
Technically 2008 but really 1976. The real Bobby Fischer anyway.
People like the spectacle of the utterly weird and Fischer was that in spades.
Blimey, I just read through this thread and I don't know what to think, I shall just go on enjoying playing over his games.
I'm sure he'd appreciate that.
i love hitler cause he kills jews, and i love bobby cause he kills Commies!
Thought I would stay out of it but for Bobby I will say this! If he read this book, "The Israel Lobby" and US Foreign Policy. By John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt. Also if he new about during Israel wars, tried to sink the USS Liberty with all hands on board and then say that Egypt done it, to bring in the US to fight their war. It is estimated The US has given Israel over one Trillion Tax payers money over the years! I can see why he may be a little upset about these facts.
Like a Chess Board was BOBBY FISCHERS Life..... As I graduated High School in 1969, I saw the CHESS MASTER during this time; and his outside the box thinking. Some people at different age levels , and at a latter time period only saw one perspective of his life which they perceive as negative. His life ran the the whole gambit; but "NO ONE" LIVED MORE in the early 70,s. To be different at that time always labled you in the negative. If I allow, and give consideration to all those who think a certain way; Then I ask if Fischer was "Playing" all of us to what he thought would be the "WORLDS END GAME" by only poking fun at our spirted weakness? After all, during his normal time; didn't he have his Favorite Chair flown in before he would play Boris Spasky? Please don't judge Fischers Life by reading only "1" Chapter.
You can be a genius at one thing and be a completely wretched person otherwise. Look at Wagner. Judge him by his music or his personal life and ideas and you get two very different assessments.
Yes, perhaps Bobby was his reincarnation .
And, in his personal life, from Wikipedia:
Wagner achieved all of this despite a life characterized, until his last decades, by political exile, turbulent love affairs, poverty and repeated flight from his creditors. His pugnacious personality and often outspoken views on music, politics and society made him a controversial figure during his life, which he remains to this day.
Wagner, love his music, thats all that counts for me
That's because you (and we all) have the luxury to do so. We don't have to put up with the whole person but just that one facet of them, whatever it may be...an interestingly unorthodox viewpoint on what is called "culture."
This is far from the only thread that gave me that reaction...
There was a great scene in the Richar Burton film Wagner, that pretty much sums the above up: an old man comes to collect debts owed, holding a sheaf of papers (presumeably the debts) and Burton's Wagner grabs them from him and starts smacking him with the papers calling him "Jew, sodomite, a@@h*le..."
LOLOLO try that with the IRS
It might just work!
In this time when loyalty trumps truth,acheivers in materiality resent him for being loyal to no one but himself.Having turned work into play he made a fortune and having the chops, spoke truth to power;the critical indolence of popular opinion. Continue to obediantly believe that Oswald alone shot Kennedy;That the Fed building was flattened by a fertilizer bomb or that skyscrapers would collapse after being hit by something they were built to stand up to. Any thinking human will go mad or at least become homeless in consiousness.
Aside from the Oswald bit, the rest is hooey produced by a permanent paranoia industry that has turned personal psychological problems into a way to make a living. They sell this nonsense to the masses and divert our political process into chasing the spiders out of their skulls. ... And what does it mean to "become homeless in consciousness?"
Chess players do not have opinions. We have conclusiona drawn from analysis.
If Bobby Fisher was indeed rude, a jerk and full of hate, then he would have been proud of this thread :P
