The rugby-playing nations won two world wars (admittedly, with help from some baseballers). Places which didn't improve after WW2 were in regions where rugby didn't take hold, and the countries that never even tried it have since then fallen apart completely.
Wherever you find UN peacekeepers, boycotted elections and bombs at polling booths, there will have been zero rugby games played the weekend before.
Inky doesn't believe in Peace, he believes in War. Nate Silver wars against inaccuracy, Will Self against hypocrisy, Krauthammer against liberalism, Keiser against debtmongery. Wars, be it Man in the Stand's against media bias or Winston Churchill's against weak diplomacy, give the victors and vanquished principles to live by afterwards. Of course we're at war, if you don't like it maybe you need to question how much you're at peace with. As the rabbi said on Yom Kippur, "If you can't think what to atone for, examine your good deeds."
Inky's not picky, he wars against mob rule in ANY form, but he has clear indicators. If you don't like rugby, he knows all he needs to.
