10Tacit Acceptance of FIFA Corruption
John Oliver had a fantastic takedown of football’s governing body on his HBO show on Last Week Tonight prior to the World Cup in Brazil. He addressed the bid corruption and inner conflict he felt supporting a fantastic sporting event organized by a greedy bureaucratic monolith at the expense of
forgoing critical infrastructure improvements in Brazil. This feeling is only going to increase in intensity and popularity as the world approaches a joyous event being held in an oppressive nation. The tacit acceptance of FIFA’s corruption and their ugly bedfellows is only going to grow with the next two World Cups being held in true bastions of liberty and freedom, Qatar and Russia.
