Why should we leave it at that, when your views appear to be so twisted?Dear Wiggo said:The environment of politics and business, IME and IMO is no different to the cycling environment. It comes back to human nature, and if you can cheat and break rules, and get away with it, people will.
Exploitation happens in all 3, often surprisingly to the naive. Wallmart employees having to strike for minimum wage, UK politicians shredding all the expense account documents pre-2010, effectively closing the corruption investigation.
No difference at a metaphorical level.
I don't want to argue, so I'll leave it there.
At least the guys can empathise with the women, who are not even offered the under the table opportunity.
So, if somebody chooses to pursue a degree in business, or be a doctor, or save up money and open a business, or work at Wal Mart, or be an accountant or engineer for Exxon, the same likelihood of corruption and rule breaking exists in those endeavors that exist in professional cycling? And, that likelihood is common knowledge?
