Is it wrong to watch football while the world’s on fire? Is it wrong to love the World Cup, to get excited about a goal scored in Brazil while there’s mayhem in Iraq, destruction in Syria, Russian troops massing near Ukraine? The answer is no. Enjoy the Cup. When I was a child I had what I thought was a brilliant idea: Instead of fighting all those awful wars, countries with gripes should challenge each other to a soccer game. The victor could be declared the winner without all the nastiness of fighting a real war.
