Power through Spectacle

A point raised in a recent lecture was that of the Beijing Olympics displaying power through spectacle. It was said that one way to view the extremely impressive opening display was that due to it’s massive scale, the organisation, the timing, formations of the people, that one of the conotations of the event was war. The spectacle itself was great and admired all over the world, but was there a subliminal message that evoked thoughts of power on an even larger scale?
