Like it or not, he argues, but sporting teams represent cities and countries, they represent cultures, they represent ideas -- sporting teams provide proxies for discussing ideas and cultures without appearing to: and they let us see that political correctness gets in the way of winning.
We like to debate sports because it’s the way we politely debate politics. Can’t talk about religion and politics? Talk about sports instead, but you’ll find the same debates, just couched behind GMs, players, coaches, and strategies. And in a politically correct world, a world that seeks to rid of greatness so we can achieve “equality,” a world that is often ashamed of success as a sign of greed and sanctimony, you will find that the more [a team] wins, and the less they care about the well-being of their opponent, the more they will be hated.Sad but true. By all accounts, the New England Patriots are currently such a team -- see our friend RelieveDebtor argue why they would be Ayn Rand's favourite team.
