Should democracy be a core value of the Olympic Spirit?


To me it seems incongruous that a country that does not value democratic rights can host the olympics.China was willing to accept a "democratic" vote to be awarded the right to host the games, but it does not value this democratic right as important enough to extend it to its citizens.
I would like to see in future that only countries that have democratic systems of government be allowed to host the olympics.
What do you think?
