Allowing its use allows those who are exploiting others to continue to do so.
Except by paying the fine for Norik and not fixing the over arching problem you are in essence funding the problem you are seeking to fight.... So I say instead of sneaking around the system eliminate it for a better one.
Michael, whether or not a rule is public or private does not affect its morality, only its legality and the extent of the injustice involved. It is still aggression, just as using a performance enhancer is an indirect aggression against one's competitors. Since marijuana is not banned for being performance enhancing but for political reasons (ie., snowboarding gold medal fiasco), it is aggression against the innocent, those who have harmed no one, unlike the proper retaliation for aggression that a steroid positive would represent. If the rule *was* laid out as a $5,000 minimum fine ahead of time then it would not be post de facto, though is still immoral aggression in my view. My understanding was that the fine system was arbitrary and perhaps that was mistaken. If so, I appreciate the correction.
This is a really interesting thread.
Competitive weightlifting, on the other hand, is a voluntary system - you are free to choose not to participate. If the lifter VOLUNTEERS to submit to the rules of competitive weightlifting, where's the immorality in that?
Put another way, isn't it immoral to impose limits on the ability of another organization to impose such nonaggressive rules as it sees fit?
Glad to see Norik took his skills elsewhere where hopefully he will be appreciated (Armenia). Did the USAW get that fine money?LMAO.
