The Sochi Olympics moral duty to the world.
I have been following with interest the recent discussion’s that have been taking place about the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia and whether they should take place in a country that does not respect so many of the human rights that we expect a modern nation to enforce in its actions and laws.
Stephen Fry is among those who have spoken out about the games and has called for a boycott of the games along with gay rights groups around the world.
In his letter to the UK Prime minster David Cameron he compared the position of gay people in Russia in 2013 to the position of Jews in Germany in 1936. That seems fair enough. In both cases, laws have been passed limiting their freedom, and concerted acts of violence mounted with the connivance of the state against their persons and businesses. An organised Reichskristallnacht against gay bars in Moscow hardly seems an implausible prospect. It is proposed that the Sochi Olympics be boycotted.
Yet with such clear evidence that the Russian state is discriminating against the gay community and not denying that it is doing so the sporting world and politicians have failed to hear the call rather they are all for the games to go ahead in Russia as planned.
It is at this point that I as the spiritual leader of the Kemtic faith have to think is this right should we just put aside the crimes of a state against its people for sport. I very much see here another example that a movement that was hoped would bring the world together through sport is once again being very selective in that role and only to happy to turn a blind eye in order that its own plans are not effected.
This is not the first time that we have seen this and sadly I am sure it will not be the last. In fact we have already seen in Brazil that the games there have been put ahead to the people with millions spent on the games while people live in poverty. People who would benefit far more from the use of this money to help them and to improve their lives than to stage a sporting event that will in the end bring none of the promises that it always offers.
So why do these people think that these games are more important than human rights and the needs of their own people this I have no answer to but I do offer my views.
What we call the Olympic games are in fact based on a total myth they were in fact a bloody display of victors over those they had defeated and todays games are in some respect very similar.
The Sochi Olympics will be a display by Mr Putin and his followers to the world that they can ignore human right and the world will turn a blind eye.
The very same organisation did the same back in 1936 and the world followed as it is today what was to follow was one of the worlds most bloody and horrific crimes of a state against the human race.
Then as know we should have said we will not stand bye in silence we will use the power of these games for the good of the human race. We failed to do so and have continued to do so time and time again with the games turning a blind eye to despotic regimes for the sack of their games.
The time has come for this to end and if the games will not turn their back on these government’s and starts to pay for the games itself rather than expecting nations to foot the bill with money that should be helping people. Then the time has come to turn our backs on the games.
The Kemtic faiths teaching clearly show that if the Olympics do not do this then we have to boycott the games and continue to do so until they change their ways without the people to follow these games they become nothing and the kudus that they give to these government’s is worthless.
