What divides us is multiplied, what brings us together "in joy" is rare. Latest event to date: July 15, 2018, final of the Football World Cup, 19,3 million French people celebrating, in "cohesion"!
Only sport (or almost) today plays this role of “unifier of a nation”. Champions are heroes and preempt the symbol of collective victory. With them, we forget our dissent, our social or cultural differences, we share our preferences: “go to the Blues” for all!
His secret? Bring back to today's tastes and into the hands of all that which truly symbolizes us and has always been. Respect for others, solidarity, team spirit. In a society losing its bearings, that feels good. It’s sporting events that make flags fly on balconies, not elections. They put more blue on faces than July 14 - a shame. In fact, if sport is so powerfully effective, it is also due to the bankruptcy of other cultural fields. Cuisine, fashion, language, architecture: globalization dilutes the markers. This is also the case for value systems: nation, religion, work or even family no longer structure as much.
