Yesterday, my brother sent me a link to this video (posted below). It features some analysis and commentary on the Olympics that you might actually find startling.
What do you think? Are the Olympics in fact:
- shameless exploitation of athletes?
- a justification for child labor and even abuse?
- an enormous boondoggle of corruption that lines the pockets of the well-connected and powerful?
- an irrational exercise in tribalism?

Admittedly, I’m just becoming aware of Stefan Molyneux, the creator of this video content. So it would be too much to treat my posting of this video as an endorsement. But he’s incredibly thought-provoking, and perhaps impossible to ignore.
