/ Allegro Non Troppo / Society & Culture / Allegro Non Troppo – Sport is Evil

 

Ethical Considerations in Sport, Society and Culture. “Sport is part of the Australian way of life” but doesn’t every culture claim this to be so? If so then sport is an integral part of all communities, cultures and national identities.
The question this week is: is sport actually that important to cultural development? Looking at the recent issues that face sport, it’s hard to understand why it is so important. Massive issues of sexual impropriety, The Rugby league sex scandal, The stripper in the football club, the supposed cruelty of Horse Jumps racing, the list goes on.
It is universally accepted that sport is part of the process to healthy living for humans, it represents exercise etc. However the competitive nature can turn sport from healthy recreation into the most cold blooded cruelty and barbarianism.
Today we will discuss the issues of sport with Rob Mitchell from the RJM trust
