The Love Affair Between Dictators and the Olympics

 Like Hitler’s 1936 games, Putin’s campaign to hold the Olympics in Sochi is all about adding to his personal glory, not any desire to better Russia.

Garry Kasporov, former World Chess Champion and Russian (Soviet) Chess Grandmaster is also a political activist and writer.   In this piece he dares to suggest that there are parallels between Putin's Sochi Games and the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Hitler's "triumph on the world stage."   Thought-provoking article, worth your time.
