And some of the dance routines! Ok some people are fat, ugly, and crippled. Yet, in a setting that glorifies the body - strength, endurance, training - why not have pretty dancers? Some of the gals dancing made me look skinny. "Stronger, faster, higher" was once a motto of the games. These are never enough to live by - some disabled people are terrific, some fat folks are wonderful, some ugly people are great - but in the festival that glorifies the body, why not have dancers who are more attractive? And then why spotlight the ugliness of the industrial revolution? Show how it improved life. Made things easier. Reduced the mortality rate, the number of deaths in childbirth. Instead the London opening highlighted Nightmares. Ugliness. Sickness (and the National Health Service)?! And political correctness ruined even the historical aspects of the program. In the 19th century the vast majority of those in the UK were white people. How many high-hatted Blacks or Asians resided in Britain in the 19th century. But to be politically correct, the camera had to show a “pretend” history of Asians and Africans in a multicultural UK in the 1850s. It is all pc bs. And why not show how British imperialism actually helped develop some other nations round the world? That the Olympics are an example of “Western Imperialism,” western values that spread through the world. But, that would be politically incorrect. So instead, the program emphasized filth, stench, and sickness. How Britain has fallen.
The motto of the Olympics used to be "faster, higher, stronger." But this is in conflict with the egalitarians who produced the London Opening Ceremony. They despise the word "best." So their ceremony did celebrate "slower, lower, weaker." Once again - how Britain has fallen!
