For moral as well as economic reasons, the Olympics should be funded wholly privately. I also despise how this event is used to promote crazed nationalism by a state-worshipping media. Why must we root for an athlete just because he is ruled by the same political hacks as we? The emphasis should be on the talent of the athletes, not the glory of the nation-states they purportedly represent.
That being said, I do enjoy the games. It’s an unparalled opportunity to admire the special talent of some very special athletes. This is a welcome break from the anti-human “we’re-all-the-same” propaganda the establishment usually shoves in our face.Published in
