Re: AC 34 - What If?

Its unhealthy. If Ellison's wealth could create a stage that many could not compete on, imagine what would happen if the G20 resources were available?
Think I would prefer some G20 funding of sailing then their main concern of advocating for corporate oligarchs.

Governments are involved in funding Olympic sports and that has been far from a fair and equal opportunity between them.
It isn't perfect, I'll give you that, but think it does bring a more level playing field. Could put a universal cap on government funding. But sure some freedom loving freedom lovers would take offense because money equals free speech.

Lastly I would like to say as you wrote in a previous post about this 'not being a place for it'. I don't think this is the place to issue imperatives to fellow posters like 'back off'. I have only commented on the points that have been brought up and have not made it personal.
