Marx was wrong ...

Religion isn't the opiate of the masses. Professional sports is.

Doug Wilson makes an interesting obesrvation that politics is actually the opiate of the masses. But I think he makes a better case that for many, politics constitutes a god — a false savior — rather than a mere opiate.

Haha! Professional sports! That's hilarious.

Seriously though, I don't really think politics is the opiate of the masses. While there are many people who are just absorbed in all things political, there are also lots of people who are just plain apathetic. Then you've got people like me in the middle.
