1936 and 2018 similarities- Loyalwolf

Just before WWII Germany held the Olympics in 1936. I believe this is very similar to how Russia are holding the world cup. Such large events such as the world cup give nations large amounts of popularity and power and if we take into account Russia’s recent actions it is very possible something very disturbing such as a war is drawing ever nearer, what do you think? I believe this because the power Russia will very shortly attain can give them the opportunity to strike and cause devastating effects. What do you believe?

Thank you for reading!

  1. Hi Loyalwolf,

    Based on what you have said, can you give a reason why other countries should boycott this world cup and a reason why they should attend?

      It is important to consider the large influences certain countries have when making vastly important decisions. If the UK were to remove themselves from the world cup, many countries may continue that pattern. If this were to happen then Russia would likely be unable to have the same effect when promoting their backwards approach to homosexuality, women, etc. Meaning, Russia will fail their possible current plan. On the other hand, the world cup is just a form of entertainment is it really necessary to take such severe precautions?
