Beijing’s unofficial Olympic slogan

Let’s pause here to get an important item of business out of the way. China’s successes are good news for the world, not just for Chinese people, and one hopes that the Olympics will succeed. ….

The problem is that by turning the Games into a massive exercise in national face, it is the Chinese government itself which has politicized them. This all but compels anyone who is even slightly curious to meditate on what has been accomplished here, how this nation arrived at the place it finds itself today and where it is headed in the future.
