Entertaiment is a term that often causes a lot of debate. It’s a word that is strongly associated with entertainment as fun and laughter, although many entertainers may also have a serious purpose, such as a religious festival or satire.
One of the most famous examples is Scheherazade, a story in the Persian professional storytelling tradition about a woman who saves her life by telling stories. The story has inspired many composers to write orchestral works, directors to make films and game developers to create innovative video games based on the tale.
A more base form of entertainment is dog fighting, where dogs such as Doberman pinschers are bred to fight other dogs and often win. This form of entertainment is reprehensible in my opinion.
