    Ops! We forgot to put Uzbekistan on the list! A communist country under authoritarian rule where wrestling is still practiced but billard has been banned and the billard federation has been abolished because the authorities considered billard a morally harmful game.

    Well if you look at the financial system in palce for the Russian wrestlers, i'd say the Russian wrestlers were the capitalists and the American wrestliers were the communists.
    The Russians wrestle for huge financial gains, the Americans wrestle for a small financial gain but for the medal and pride.

    So capitalism wins once again.

    You are assuming communists don't care about money. That is not so. It is the means of earning the money that makes the difference.

    Big i don't assume communists don't care about money, i know they do and thats why communism is inferior to capitalism.
    The Russian wrestling system is capitalism, if you work hard and rise above other people you will make a lot of money. Hence why Russia does so well. I don't think any wrestlers in the world make as much money as Russian wrestlers.

    Except for one important difference: In capitalism you make the money by selling your product to the public but in communism you make the money by making the Nation proud!

    Every man or woman in Soviet Russia that contributed to the country's greatness always received a better share from the government than your average citizens.

    But lets be real, Russian wrestlers still make only a fraction of what professional athletes make in USA. Russian wrestlers receive a fair compensation for their efforts, no more and no less. In America professional athletes make obscene amounts of money. $100 million for hitting the ball with the bat. Please!

    In communism a country has less wealth than in capitalism but the distribution of wealth is much more fair!

    Are you trying to promote communism as a superior means of government because its more 'fair'. No its not more fair, if you work hard, push yourself and succeed then you should make a lot of money. It is very unfair for a man who has worked hard to make the same or a simialar amount to a man who has no will to work or study.
    You have an odd sense of what is fair and what is not.

    I guess the fact that communist countries have to betray communist ideology in order to have success in the arena of sports just goes to show that communism breeds inefficiency and lazyness.

    If someone has a skill that is very rare and of very high worth then let them get paid. People say the same thing about football players here, but they have a sought after skill and they should reap the rewards for their skill.

    In America you can work hard at McDonalds and make little money, much less than a stock broker who sits at the desk.

    In America you can have a PHD and make less money than an owner of a gas station who dropped out of high school. It aint all that black and white as you suggest tiger.

    Communism is great because the government and the system realize equalizing people's compensation does more good with respect to fairness than bad exactly because of the scenarios I have given above.

    Communism always rewarded people that made its Nation proud in sports or elsewhere. THAT is why Russian wrestlers make a good living.

    Big i think you are getting too hung up on the concept of working hard. Working smart is much more important than working hard. A stock broker works smart, a business owner is smart, a PHD is not necassarily a great investment, if i get my PHD i will make less than if i only have a masters.

    I don;t think your scenario's have shown that communism is more fair. If anything your sceanrio's have proven why capitalism is a better system.

    Frankly, i think you are kidding yourself if you think a billionaire giving Russian wrestlers a million if they win a gold is communism, that is pure capitalism. Russian wrestlers flourish under capitalist wrestling system.
