The Debate on Lance Armstrong
Word of Lance Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency led to a flurry of activity across social media. The debate: Whether Usada should have pursued the case against him, and whether Mr. Armstrong should have fought the allegations.
- After this much time, this is an outrage. USADA should be stripped of their ability to do this. He followed the rules, he passed each and every test and to come back after this long and say well, you didnt earn any of that is rather disturbing and disgusting. I applaud Lance for focusing on his life instead of this load of crap.
- This is not about "doping.". This is about a society that has been led to believe that a person's success is either the result of others' sacrifice (You didn't build that!) or some kind of "unfair" advantage. Hard work and natural ability are no longer values that are held in esteem. Success is a result of unearned advantage and cheating. It doesn't take a genius to see where that philosophy will take society.
