It would be a waste of breathe to say that the United Nations is a disgraceful organization. The amount of Jew hate alone disqualifies the organization as having even one iota of decency.
There is one UN operational organization that builds schools and clean water sources in war torn areas. Possibly that is a positive for the UN. Most of the construction is destroyed within months by rival tribes. The world is still mostly tribal and will be for centuries.
The point I want to make is that the Olympics are largely a reflection of the UN. The UN has over 190 member nations. The majority are the same size or smaller than San Francisco in population, area or economic output. Think Andorra, Anguilla, Antigua and Aruba just in the A’s.
The UN General Assembly is a meaningless body. Remember it excludes Tibet, the Basques, Scotland and a Kurdish nation. It doesn’t represent anything known to man. Except the politics of the Cold War and who the U.S. or the USSR wanted to have as voting members.
The member nations of the Olympics are the same. No definition. The people on the Isle of Man and the Island of Vanuatu can compete on the same grounds as China and India which have a 1,000 times more people. AND the playoffs at the Olympic games are designed to give small nations extra points to keep them in the higher ranks.
The whole issue is trivial. But it is a reminder of the inherent stupidity of the UN and the need for a more functional global body. At present the UN represents the Cold War power structure dating from the second half of the 20th Century.
So do the Olympics.
