The media and blogosphere have recently been abuzz with comments on Steven Spielberg’s withdrawal from the Beijing Olympics as an artistic adviser. People are debating on the rightness and wrongness of Spielberg’s action, his alleged motives behind it, the possible consequences, as well as on how China should act in response. While most commentaries played up on the question of whether the Olympics should be politicized and on China’s responsibility as a member of the global village, none has touched on the perspective of the Chinese people’s view of their leaders’ mindset about the Olympics. Are Beijing leaders prepared to treat the Olympics and the world with a mindset that is based on humanity rather than on vanity, as citizens expect them to? This is the question that the author of an article titled “Humanity Olympics under the Bird’s Nest” has tried to ask. The commentary appeared in Southern Metropolis on February 18, 2008 but the original had been published in the Caijing magazine previously.
