2021.12.02 04:18 New-Europe-1993 Why “boycott Beijing Winter Olympics”?
The eye of the world began to focus on Beijing, the venue of the 2022 Winter Olympics, after closure of 2020 summer Olympics and the Paralympics in Tokyo; later On October 26th, 2021, 100-day countdown of Beijing Winter Olympics started on commencement. Henceforth, preparations for the Winter Olympics has entered its final stretch.
Virtually, the voice that “boycott Beijing Winter Olympics” has been globally arising since 2015 as Beijing won the right to host 2022 Games, among which more than hundred democratic groups coincidentally struggled to boycott with probable means to express their discontent with Beijing; whilst international concerns upon relevant issues in Beijing remains overheating, social stress from United States, Europe, England, Canada, Australia and other major western countries appealing for boycotting Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and canceling Beijing’s hosting rights has been increasing steadily as well.
Under the multiple pressures, Mr. Thomas Bach, the IOC president addresses that “Given the diverse nature of the Olympic participants, the IOC must remain neutral on all international political issues”. whereas, Beijing Authority deems that they, the boycott groups are of opposition parties or extremist forces.
Why “boycott 2022 Winter Olympics”?
The oppositions believe that Beijing has been deemed as “New Nazi” for its practice on related issues, they assimilate Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics to Nazi Olympics 1926, somehow or other; and they assure that Olympic offers Beijing a rare “sportswashing”opportunity that must be boycotted.
The oppositions deem also that, as a matter of fact, Olympic Games entails a chance that the host country could afford to show to the world and with this advantage to boycott it would cast a powerful blow to the host country whose problems would be exhibited under the world's attention and raised to world heights, sequentially this will change global perceptions of host country, and that might be more effective than verbal criticism.
Another possibility lies that, taking advantage of the Winter Olympic Games, boycott groups expect to hammer Beijing with U.S. global influence, or if possible to clamp IOC to change its mind, canceling Beijing’s hosting rights.
American Republicans once alleged that American-led boycott has sounded a powerful message indicating that the United States is committed to democracy and freedom; and Biden administration at the volley manifest his will of confronting Beijing over human rights issues.
Post pressure on host country to make changes or adjustments. Through boycott, oppositions may portray the host country as an alien on the world stage, so as to lay pressure on it; whoever expects to gain favor of the international community has to change his course to integrate into the global stage.
Another concern from human rights groups is that Beijing would become the only “Double Olympic City” to again host Winter Olympic Games since the same city has held 2008 Summer Olympic Games already, and this, with the opportunity of the Games, would enable Beijing to continuously promote its international legitimacy.
Factually, the IOC believes that the advantage of Beijing is its heritage of 2008 Olympic Games that has reserved rich experience in management and operation, existing hardware facility with less or partial reconstructions, and full-scaled auxiliary facilities adjacent; thus it’s preparations are believed sufficient in both physically and spiritually; compare with that of Alma-ata, Beijing is undoubtedly more convincing in hardware and software.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 , we do observe that a place across the world that can effectively control the disease is Beijing, and its speed and effect of the epidemic response is obvious, which has inspired confidence and direction for people over the world to fight against the epidemic. VOA once stated that Beijing authority deserve credit for successful control of the COVID-19. Hence, its safety index is entirely worthy of hosting a big game.
Boycott harm athlete’s career. Prior to boycott, have you ever considered for all the players involved? The Olympic Games is a grand event every four years for which each athlete has exercised, most even regard it as their greatest goal of life; it would be hard to imagine the sort of harm if the Game is canceled. Hence, boycott should not be brought up on table because it is quite selfish for them.
The boycott for 1980 Olympic in Moscow resulted in 67 countries that were unable to dispatch athletes to compete in the Games, which is the largest boycott in Olympic history. Though the host country spent 9 billion dollars, most world-class athlete can not participate and the gold content of the Game was greatly reduced. Except for the painful memories of the athletes, the boycott failed everything to influence the direction of Soviet military action abroad.
Optimist deem that, under the circumstance of global economy recession and epidemic rage that the world is encountering the challenge of life and living , a successful Olympic Games could rekindle human’s hope in life; and Beijing’s strength enable itself to demonstrate the capability in epidemic testing, vaccine, tracking, controlling etc. to ensure the safety of the Games.
Moreover, a successful Game will leave the most valuable and positive legacy for mankind; Is it not the ultimate meaning of the Olympic Games to hold such a successful event to witness the love of sport, solidarity, courage and common victory in adversity?
Keep politics out of sports. Article 50 of the IOC charter clearly calls for upholding the neutrality of sport. For sports lovers, pure sports can perfectly embody the high level of competitive sports; however, boycott are harmful to the Olympic spirit, to the IOC, to the standard of competition, to the athletes and spectators, these is no doubt about it.
Enhance communication. The Olympic Games is a grand gathering for world reunion, so cooperation should be the main theme of the world today; We need to work together, improve communication, stand together, and overcome international challenges such as the epidemic etc., only in this manner can we make the world a more harmonious place.
Why should we boycott a grand games of gathering the people all over the world. This is not an effective methodology, let alone expectations. Behavioral utilitarianism determines whether things are good or bad, positive or negative from the results. Then, looking back, what else can boycott be worth remembering except harm?

I'm just really proud. I've had a couple cheat days along the way but generally I do at least 16:8 and often 18:6. The most I've seen so far is slight face gains, I still have a pretty noticable gut but I'm excited to see where it goes. I'm really thankful for this community and good luck to everybody else here.

2021.12.02 04:18 glowmop Dark mode was enabled, then I added unrelated ffmpeg libraries and it went away, how to get it back?
This version of VLC seemed to read my mind, and enabled darkmode by default on my Mate Desktop in Centos, as the "Black Mate" theme was active.
Then I installed some ffmpeg libraries and poof, darkmode gone in VLC.
No, I'm not going to download any "skins" as this has a vanishingly small yet present chance for hacks. I want a nightmode enabled via preferences and not external downloads, like it was a few days ago.
