ABSTRACT
The article comments on the suggestion of the boycott of the Moscow Olympic Games by political strategists James Burnham. A U.S. boycott would have the effect of collapsing these Games. To deprive the people of the Soviet Union of the single opportunity to achieve this experience of a lifetime is to achieve too much. U.S. Secretary of State has said that unless the Soviet troops are pulled out of Afghanistan by the middle of February, he will oppose the U.S. participation in the Olympic Games in Moscow.
