Jogos Olímpicos Pequim 2008: que fazer à consciência?

Eu gosto de ver “as corridas”, como lhes chama o Nelson, mas isso não significa que não partilhe das convicções dele ou que não sinta que, de facto, precisamos de resistir ao “barulho das luzes“.

Sendo assim, que fazer à consciência, para podermos assistir às diversas proezas atléticas, sem nos sentirmos cúmplices da hipocrisia global que ofereceu ao regime totalitário chinês esta oportunidade de ouro de se legitimar em toda a sua contraditória condição de potência mundial?

Eu dei por mim a trautear Monty Python, um destes dias…

Title: I like Chinese
From: Monty Python’s Contractual Obligation Album

(spoken)
The world today is absolutely crackers.
With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.
There’s fools and idiots sitting on the trigger.
It’s depressing, and it’s senseless, and that’s why…

(singing)
I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They only come up to you knees,
Yet they’re always friendly and they’re ready to to please.

I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
There’s nine hundred million of them in the world today,
You’d better learn to like them, that’s what I say.

I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They come from a long way overseas,
But they’re cute, and they’re cuddly, and they’re ready to please.

I like Chinese food,
The waiters never are rude,
Think the many things they’ve done to impress,
There’s maoism, taoism, I Ching and chess.

I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their zen, their ping-pong, their yin and yang-eze.

I like Chinese thought,
The wisdom that Confucius taught,
If Darwin is anything to shout about,
The Chinese will survive us all without any doubt.

So, I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They only come up to you knees,
Yet they’re wise, and they’re witty, and they’re ready to please

Wo, I chumba run,
Wo, I chumba run,
Wo, I chumba run,
Ne hamma, Ne hamma, Ne hamma sa chen.

I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They’re food is guaranteed to please,
A fourteen, a seven, a nine and li-cheese

I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their zen, their ping-pong, their yin and yang-eze

I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
(fade out….)
