Dangerous Sports Should Be Banned

When we speak of the ancient Romans, we can't help thrilling at the slaughter in their arenas which they took as entertainment. Well, any way, this happened 2,000 years ago. But are modern people less blood-thirsty? Why do boxing matches attract such universal interest? Don't the spectators hope to see some violence?

It is really incredible that in this age we should still allow hunting and bull-fighting, that we should be prepared to sit back and watch two men fight each other in a boxing ring, that we should be relatively unmoved by the sight of one or a number of racing cars Crashing and bursting into flames. People take part in violent sports because of the high rewards they bring. Spectators are willing to pay vast sums of money to see violence. A lot of people are disappointed if a fight is over in two rounds instead of fifteen just because they have been deprived of the exquisite pleasure of witnessing prolonged torture and violence.

Why should we ban violent sports since people enjoy them so much? The answer is simple, they are uncivilized.

For centuries man has been trying to improve himself spiritually and emotionally – admittedly with little success. But at least we no longer tolerate the sight madmen cooped up in cages, or public floggings of any of the countless other barbaric practices which were common in the past. Prisons are no longer the grim forbidding places they used to be. Social welfare systems are in operation in many parts of the world. Big efforts are being made to distribute wealth fairly. These changes have come about not because human beings have suddenly and unaccountably improved, but because positive steps were taken to change the law. The law is the biggest instrument of social change that we have and it may exert great civilizing influence. If we banned dangerous and violent sports, we would be moving one step further to improving mankind. We would recognize that violence is degrading and unworthy of human beings.
