I will follow my athletes from Norway, but with mixed thoughts and emotions due to the issues presented in this short video and other issues as well. Zika virus, violation of human rights etc. But we mustn't ignore the progress Brazil has made in many other cases.

Such a rich country in minerals and oil and yet socialist government policies
over the years have sent Brazil's economy into a downward spiral.:(

Over the years you find organizations like this seem to lose their way. Eventually the mission changes from outward focus to inward focus whereby today we have a corrupt organization taking bribes for who will host and as a result the athletes will be exposed to harmful environments they may well carry with them for the rest of their lives. And all of that for what, a corrupt organization of jackasses that don't care about anyone but the organization.

#2 sux your going to get downgraded for your socialist comment lol. But your are right most of these so called socialist present come in with great ideas and i believe good intentions but many times leave the country worse. Brazil used to be a powerhouse of a country but lately has been going down. I have seen that any kind of government that blames others for their problems do not better their country.

#2, #5 said, that's not really socialism, is it? Sounds more like corrupt and dysfunctional capitalism to me.

For example, the Nordic countries are truly socialistic. Companies have very limited power and the government provides high quality healthcare, education and even basic income for everyone. Almost the exact opposite of what Brazil has been heading for lately.

#6 Socialism involves a system of government in which the means of production and distribution of goods are owned and controlled by the state, or a collective, rather than by individual people and companies, just like in Brazil. And when the government is corrupt it can use its control of the economy and industry to enrich those in power.
According to what I have read, the "Nordic model" includes a combination of free market capitalism with a comprehensive welfare state and collective bargaining at the national level. The Nordic model of "social democracy" refers to a set of policies for promoting economic security and opportunity within the framework of capitalism rather than a system to replace capitalism.
Does that sound about right?
