Sport can do a lot more than just further capital accumulation.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

Yep. That's where the Buddha statues that were knocked down by the Taliban once sat/stood. Ugh.
