A new life at 67.Can a woman start all over again?

59% of the people who were asked this question in Switzerland last week said yes. It won’t help of course.It wouldn’t help if most of the world said yes. The only thing that would help is that the athletes themselves refused to take part. But they are not going to do that,because it is all a matter of gain. Advantage, whether it is personal merit, or business profit. Human suffering, is just something that gets in the way. They knew it would. And they still chose China.

Comments on: "Should we Boycott the Chinese Olympics?" (8)

  1. You’re so right about it not helping even if the world said yes. It saddens me that profit is put before just about everything today. I often wonder where it will all end.

  2. It won’t be happy that’s for sure.If only profit had a more human face.

  3. China has always had a bad record on human rights. But why are people raising the issue now, just months before the Olympics. It is obvious that the activists are using the Olympics as a bargaining chip. How opportunistic! What about all the athletes who have worked so hard all their lives in hope of achieving their medal dreams? They have the right to be selfish, aren’t they?

    I have lost all respects for the Dali Lama. If something like this happens last year or next year, I would have applauded the Dali Lama and his followers for standing up against China.The Dali Lama has always preached people to be righteous and non-opportunistic, but his actions during the current conflict go against his teaching.

  4. I personally think it is a good opportunity.Why not protest when the world is looking in that direction,they certainly have reason to.As you will have noticed from my post I feel they should never have gone to Bejing in the first place,it was certainly looking for trouble.Poor Athletes?Had they held out earlier everyone could have gone back to Greece,with more emphasis on the spirit of the games and less on the show.Thanks for your comment anyway.

  6. China was awarded the Games in 2001, the same year that it was admitted to the WTO. Nothing has changed since, it didn’t matter than, why does it matter now? Calls for a boycott are opportunistic.

  7. China.Who is going to stand up against a country about to control the world,and made possible through our greed. Why did nobody read H.G.Wells.
    Thankyou for stopping by Daniel.
    Stupidly i still look to see where something is made before I buy,but like the Olympics we hardly have a choice anymore

  8. Sorry, aber das bezweifel ich ganz stark…Baer
