Since the Olympics started some of the politics in the games have changed. Of course, no matter what you think there are a few things that have never changed. First of all, one thing that has not changed is why the games were started. The politics in the Olympic games show that this is a way a for countries around the world to be more connected. I think that is the number one thing that we have to remember. Because of this, when a country, no matter how small, does not partake in the games it is hurting us all. It is sad that sometimes we are not able to come together and all play some games together. I mean, nothing in the world should ever be that bad that we cannot play games together. The second politics in the games that have never changed is that this is a way for people to prove that they are the best in the world. This is a way for people to get in shape and be more vigorous. I know that this may not be the first thing you think of when you think of politics in the Olympic games, but it is the truth. We all have to be able to work together to reach the goals that we all want. Some of the goals that I think that we all want is that we want everyone to be able to come together and become more connected. After all, to me that is these reasons are the best politics in the Olympic games. Any event that can bring people together like this is a great, I think. However, when you can bring people together from other places in the world then you have one of the best events in the world. I mean, it is hard to get people to travel to other parts in the world but the Olympics is a event that can make people do that. We should all have a event that we would love to go see in another country no matter if its the Olympics or not. Wanting to go see things in another country is the best way to build connections.
Any country that has been in the Olympic games has to say that it was a great honor to be a part of it. I mean something that is this big is always great. However, just like some of the politics in the games change so do the countries that partake in the games. In the Olympic games in 1936, you saw for the first time where politics had a major effect on the games. This is where Hitler had a chance to show off the brand new Germany. This was during the post WWI time, and he wanted to prove that his Aryan race was the best in every aspect. He also wanted to prove that blacks where so far below the skill level of the Aryan race that the could never win the games. However, some of the athletes in the games like Jesse Owens had other thinks to say. This was not the only time that there was politics in the games. In the 1980 Los Angeles games, the USSR, East Germany, Cuba, and some other countries boycotted the Olympic games. However, this was the fist time that China had chosen to play since 1932.
Some times you have to take the good with the bad. Because of this we live and we learn. It is going to take time for everyone to become prefect. Who are we kidding, people are never going to be perfect. However, that does not change the fact that games can bring us closer together. Being in the Olympic games with other countries is a great way for us to grow as a nation. I mean, going to other countries is cool. I mean, I have always wanted to go to Japan to see what it is like.
