Steroids: neo-thunder

Clementon, NJ

#1 May 5, 2013
Athletes in modern times have been accused of ingesting illegal performance-enhancing steroids to boost their prowess and media attention.

Steroids are known to cause addiction, pain, long-term detriments to the body, and unnatural strength fluctuations. However, in the media frenzy celebrity age, athletes often feel emotional and social pressure to take steroids to maintain performance-criterion media adulation.

Because steroids physically change the human body, many doctors and psychologists wonder if the ingestion of such dramatic substances literally changes the athlete into someone less interested in sportsmanship and fair play. Athletes claim, however, that the use of steroids is mostly based on media attention pressures and not simply vanity or pride.

Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Celebrity" (1998) explore modern pressures in civilization regarding wealth celebration and fame obsession. Do such trends regress wisdom?

Thomas Hobbes wrote in his eerie philosophy book "Leviathan" (1651) that society ambition is governed by two wealth forces: festivity and panic. Such considerations are emotionally revealing of ambition sensitivity in the modern age symbolically ruled by consumerism-pensive video games such as "Diner Dash" (GameLab).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
