Boycott The Olympic Boycott (August 12, 2013)
. . .
A “Boycotts are often the most effective moral and economic means to vote against oppression and repression or in favor of truth and justice. Do not buy a product or do buy another product. However, boycotting an Olympics is more of an act to ‘cut off your nose to spite your face.’”
B “Spite and nose cutting are not pretty.”
A “Send the athletes to compete. The Olympics are often expressions of nationalism, jingoism and aggression with all manner of doping, deception and dishonesty. However, there is the possibility that a hard-working kid gets a chance at a bigger stage and a few minutes on the winner’s podium.”
B “Even if the Russian policy toward gays and gay marriage is reactionary, America should react by sending its athletes who have trained hard to perform.”
A “Prevailing at an away game on foreign soil and celebrating with restraint is always more sublime.”
. . .
B “Let the pitchers pitch.”
A “Pitch your pitch on the pitch.”
