Although some of these are not funny, but they do make a wonderful point. I’m still not sure how to view the Olympics in China this summer, other than the fact that they will be on television, 24/7 during the coverage. If we say that we are going to boycott the Olympics because of what China is doing in Tibet, and to their own people who are Christians, then why do we do business with them? If we take a stand against their Olympics, isn’t that really a hollow stand, since we buy so many things that are made in China? If we really want to make a stand, boycott all that has that famous label, “Made in China.”
But then again, if we do boycott their goods, are we really helping the people of China. Some of them would not have jobs were it not for the fact that we buy their products. Never mind their wicked regime, should we not think about those who have no control over their government, and are just seeking to make a living?
This is why I’m not ever so quick to jump on the boycott bandwagon. Why not go to the Olympics, but make a point of saying that their government is wicked and needs change on a broad level, mainly from the leaders of the countries represented there. They have more sway than a boycott would.
