Thread: Should men wrestle?

    Default Should men wrestle?

    It's an idea I've been kicking around. I know it's a little controversial, but what do you think? Should men be allowed to wrestle?

    Men were made to wrestle! Everything else is just a deviation from the original.

    Here is how Niezsche would explain why many people are against wrestling.

    A long time ago men wrestled to learn how to defend their communities in the time of war when wars were fought with bare hands. Now you have technology and men should become humane and passive with regard to violence. Wrestlers like violent combat and hence they are the enemy of society. They need to be ridiculed like by equaling them to gays for example.

    This is all due to the decay of society as it loses its raw and natural instincts. Society is becoming weak.

    Again, this is all as per Nietzsche!

    Then how would he describe the gigantic following in a much more brutal form of combat (MMA)?

    They are entertainers Schlottke, just like Hollywood. They fight for money. Makes sense. There is no MMA in high schools and colleges. MMA fighters are very few.

    Your point was that, "Wrestlers like violent combat and hence they are the enemy of society."

    MMA guys like more violence, and have more adoring fans.
