In ancient Rome, whenever the empire was struck with hardship, such as famine, war, a weak economy or social unrest, the Senate would arrange massive gladiator festivals often lasting several weeks, in order to distract the population from the misery of their lives.

Of course, in modern, civilised, western society, we've come too far to use those less fortunate than ourselves as tools for our own entertainment.....

Hang on, I'll finish after Britain's Got Talent. Diversity FTW!!!!!
