The thousands who crowd the stadiums to watch, applaud and laugh are imbeciles who deprive themselves of practicing these activities themselves. […] Those who direct the course of their life themselves have no need to watch its representation by stage actors or movie stars. […] The Bedouin peoples, who are very serious and industrious, thus take no interest in theatre or cinema. Leading a very austere life, they deride imitation. Bedouins don’t like to be spectators; they take part in games and joyful ceremonies, because they naturally recognize the need for these activities, and practise them spontaneously.
