'Our Olympic Hell: A Militarised, Corporate, Jingoistic Disgrace' ~ Andy Worthington

May 16, 2012 — "Greed, waste, exaggeration, distortion, militarism, paranoia, jingoism and social cleansing [...] the Olympics have become a festival of the global security industry, with a running and jumping contest as a sideshow. No one in government dares call a halt. Nero in his prime could not have squandered so much money on circuses."
