The Opening Ceremony was definitely the best show I've ever seen. Technology has come so far. The idea of "Harmony" as the theme throughout is an important one. It would be great if it spreads inside China to solve other problems, which as a country, it is not alone in having.

Harmony inherently requires Freedom. As we witness freedoms being stolen by leaders in the Western world and oppression expanded in places like the Georgian invasion, we know that just putting on a show of "Harmony" for 90,000 rich people in a stadium and on a TV screen for a few billion to see is not enough. Real "Harmony" will only come from the freedom each individual experiences and shares in respect to others. Stealing land (for the "public good"), encroaching on others' borders and killing people with guns or polluted air and water isn't the road to Harmony. Openness, in terms of society, means not just letting others look into the country without restriction, it means allowing its citizens to look out across the world and be informed of ALL that is available; ALL knowledge and ALL News.

As huge as it was, the Great Start to the 17 days of Olympics is but a speck in the big picture. A Great Start to Harmony 24/7, 365… is what is needed now for people in all of the 200+ nations, without borders and without restriction by "authorities".
