I think that’s why punishments against the state with actual bite that punish the entire system even if it means banning or suspending the state’s athletes for a good number of years to affect a “generation” of athletes are more appropriate than just acting as if it’s an individual problem because it’s the state that has created this culture of financial vulnerability and exploitation. And then to use that to create an “athletic army” to promote state pride and thus propaganda is also another gross aspect. Using the very few who make it to the highest class and give them all the materialistic and status-related rewards to reap for the purpose of encouraging new generations of vulnerable children to go through this same system…yeah. A widespread problem cannot be dealt with by divvying up individual punishments. Of course, sanctions can be argued to hurt those vulnerable more but the cost of acceptance or just reducing it as “reality” doesn’t help matters and actively encourages it.
