Both organizations need to be replaced for the good of the sport, the good of those fellow humans who have been traditionally shunned. Who would it harm to form a new Soccer organization and follow its leadership?

Rich autocracies? Or Islam?

Its not the "authoritarians" that have you upset, its that its a different culture.

You just can't understand why they don't accept yours, yet you mouth off about diversity incessantly.

Quatar is a Muslim country. Very religious to their God. I would not classify it as authoritarian.

So how exactly would you classify a monarchy where the Emir runs the executive, legislative, and judicial bodies and also appoints the prime minister that "runs" the government?

He wouldn't. There is no "bad" or "worse", only different.
The Aztecs needed to pull one beating heart from a human everyday to make the sun/son rise. It's not bad, just different.
The Lord's Resistance Army is "very religious to their God". The boys receive god's grace by way of a machete and the loss of one arm. They get to keep one, how else are they gonna pull a trigger. Not bad, different. The fate of the girls is, meh, let's just say different.

I'm an American of English descent so my a big part of my culture is not giving a f--k about or respecting anyone else's culture. Where's the love for my heritage? I'm being oppressed!

If Republicans had their way, the 2026 US hosted matches would be an authoritarian world cup.
