Boycotting Chinese goods is much better justified not because China has
subjugated 2 million Tibetians, but because these goods are produced by
the slave labor of 1,000 million Chinese. Because they are produced with
Iraqi oil (to the cost of 1.3 million lives so far, and counting).
Because they are produced at the expense of burning coal. Because they are
produced to enrich the cabal of crooks that print paper money in the US.
Boycotting the Olympics is much more justified on the grounds that sports
are an outlet for aggression, a vehicle for group narcisism, which paints
people as enemies, rather than neighbors, which prevents us from realizing
our own individual potential instead of dissolving and depersonalizing our
egos in the ego if the crowd, because being a sports fan is only one step
from being a soldier, because they are a drug which prevents us from
taking the time to think about our lot in life, doing something about it,
and ultimately growing.

I beg to differ here.
China is a joke. China is a slavery appendage to the global plutocracy.
Without the Federal Reserve, China falls misarably in a matter of months.
It is the Federal Reserve that is incompatible with a free world. This is
where the serious "boycotting" should be directed to.
