The Fight

I did not watch the big fight the other night. I do remember, as a child, my Father liking to watch the Friday Night fights on early television; wrestling too. My Mother wouldn’t watch them.

Since that time so many years ago, the world has changed. Then we were in the peaceful Eisenhower years and Korea was just beginning. You know the rest it terms of global violence.

Why we as a society like to watch two men beat each other is beyond me. Haven’t we had enough violence in our lives?

Do we need a public fight to keep us entertained?

To me it’s like the gladiators of Roman times who fought, usually to the death, an opponent all to entertain the Roman citizenry.
