Why I don't watch the Olympics

When the Olympics Games were revived in 1896, they were about peace, celebrating the achievements of a few to lift up all, and hold up a mirror to the human race to show what it could be. It did not take long for it to become a dick-waving contest. Now it's about neoliberal profits and spotlighting the indulgence of the ridiculously wealthy in the face of enforced austerity against the many.  That, and I don't have cable.
