To most spectators, the games are all about the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. However, in "Racing Towards Perdition: The Questionable Spiritual Foundation Of The Contemporary Olympiad", social theorist and cultural analyst Dr. Frederick Meekins examines a number of the ideas embraced by the influential elites organizing these prominent athletic spectacles and the worldview those pulling the strings behind the scenes at such global venues hope to promote.
