    In addition to religion, the Superbowl is the opiate of the people. Or you could compare to gladiatorial games, just before the fall of the Roman Empire.

    Earthquakes and UFOs and vinyl chloride, oh my!

        This is a site about Ayn Rand. She did not believe in religion, and neither do I. You certainly have a right to believe in whatever you want.

          "This is a site about Ayn Rand." True, but only partially true. This site was invented to promote and discuss the Atlas Shrugged movie trilogy, mainly, and Ayn Rand along with it. In the beginning (years ago) all that comprised the hottest topics and often still does, but the Gulch was never limited. The "Ask The Gulch" invitation spells it out thusly: "Got a question about Objectivism? Ayn Rand? Politics? Life? Dinner? Or... anything else for that matter. The Gulch wants to hear it."

          That said, I understand your reference to the Superbowl as "bread and circuses" by the Roman poet Juvenal, but religion as an opiate is straight out of Marx. Edit add: Hard to believe, but this point may be an intersection where Rand and Marx actually agree on something.
