In an opinion piece by Father Thomas F. Dailey, OSFS, professor of theology and director of the Salesian Center for Faith & Culture at DeSales, Father Dailey shares his experience upon visiting the Colosseum in Rome recently, where he imagined the ancient gladiators in battle and compared the scene to today's world, where fighting for fame or for fun has become the rage. "In a world more regularly at war, battles become acceptable." said Father Dailey. "In a society governed by litigation, conflicts become commonplace." According to Father Dailey, fight clubs risk creating a culture where conflict comes to be resolved with force rather than reason, something already evident in today's world.
