Popular events like football World Cup and other international sporting occasions are essential in easing international tensions and releasing patriotic emotions in a safe way. to what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
It is argued that popular events like football World Cup that based on internaitonal teams can stabilise patriotic emotions and international tensions in a safe way. I totaly disagree with this arguement and i think this events make nationalist people act more dangerously. First of all i believe a big international event can cause some fights and vandalisms and may increase the patriotic emotions. At this kind of big events, people from all the world come to support their national team and if the team lose, they get upset and angry with the oppenent team and their nation. We can see lots of examples of this situation on nearly every international sport cup. Especially, after big wins there is always an angry group of loser team's supporter and they can cause some problems with the opponent team's supporters. That is why international sport occasions are not easing international tensions in my opinion. Secondly, at the period of this events some dangerous people can find place to do something provacative about important sensitive subjects. Because there are lots of people from all around the world outside they can reach their goal easily. For example, a racist person can do something provacative in front of everyone that he or she point on and cause a fight or something bad. Thus, someone may use these events as an opportunity to harm a nation and this doesn't help relasing patriotic emotions. To conclude, these kind of big and international events can be enjoying and can cheer up the people but on the other hand they may cause some patriotic and provacative scenes more than easing international tensions.
