The Olympics are the worship of man, the worship of his body. But sports are the worship of man's body; war is the ultimate that all of these lead to. The ultimate manifestation of all of these is War.--His physical prowess, his mechanical ingenuity, his tactical genius and his indomitable spirit! The Olympics are the worship of man, the worship of his body. But sports are the worship of man's body; war is the ultimate that all of these lead to. The ultimate manifestation of all of these is War
.--His physical prowess, his mechanical ingenuity, his tactical genius and his indomitable spirit!War is the ultimate combination. Man at his best, which is his worst!--WAR! His most destructive worst, his greatest strength, his greatest genius, his greatest inventive power and his greatest spirit, patriotism or whatever you want to call it, is used for war and a competitive spirit against others who are doing the same.
See how this competitive sports thing has been the final stages of every great civilisation and empire!--The worship of the body. It's very sexual too, as you notice, all these things are very sexy. So sex is included as a part, but in some ways a very minor part.Sports glorifies sex, but at the same time belittles it and pretends to dislike it.
Did you know that the Nicaragua-El Salvador War, in which 20,000 people were killed, started over a football game? In fact, Ernest Hemingway, the world famous writer, who spent so much of his time in Latin America and Spain, said you could eliminate most Latin American wars and their causes by simply banning football or soccer! Those games get them so worked up into a frenzy against each other that nothing but a total all-out war can truly satisfy the spirit of it! The whole thing is a worship of the flesh and the worship of man with a competitive spirit of war, the very essence of contention and competition and struggle: warfare, and the perfect preparation for it! Sports is war in disguise, and the Olympics disguised all this under the totally false and contrary theme song of "Peace"! That's their theme!--Isn't that something. So they speak peace while war is in their hearts, and they talk peace while they prepare for war--prepare their bodies for war!
