Great thread SpittinTruth.
Apart from all the symbolism talked about on other threads, the various conspiracies, and facts reported in the mainstream news (eg
Think back to the Russel Crowe movie Gladiator... when the new emperor (Commodus Aurelius) is standing over the model of his new stadium.
Commodus: Yes...the greatness of Rome. And what is that?
Lucilla: It's an idea. Greatness...greatness is a vision.
Commodus: Exactly, a vision. Do you not see, Lucilla? I will give the people a vision and they will love me for it. They will soon be tired of the
sermonizing of a few, dry, old men. I will give them the greatest vision of their lives.
Apart from the usual bread and circus the elites provide the masses to be happy with, I believe the Olympics is also a 'vision'. Many people are
caught up in it, believing it is "reality" though.
Not a lot really changes imo. Technically we're still in a Grekko-Roman worldview, where the whole world is now like a new Roman Empire.
World empire Greece was the birthplace of democracy (..ie. an idea) .. an idea which Alexander the Great..and the later the Roman Empire with their
new form 'republican democracy' pushed worldwide through military might-- That's still the way it is today imo.
The Olympics represents a vision... an idea... it's part of a new enlightened democracy being pushed worldwide that we now call "Globalism".
(..think torch, the five olympic rings etc)
