By Scot Landies
Rousseau would strongly oppose the use of steroids in sports. Rousseau would say that no matter how good or bad or even what position of power you are in the rules still extend to you. So no one should be allowed to break them and unlevel the playing field.
He states "Each of us puts his person and all his power in common under the supreme direction at the general will, and in our corporate capacity we receive each member as an indivisible part of the whole."
Rousseau is against any kind of unfairness regarding the breaking of rules. He believes that everyone should be and remain equal and no one is above the rules. The use of steroids in sports is putting yourself ahead of others in such a way that is not permitted. The playing field is level until someone uses performance enhancing drugs and breaks the sovereignty of the community.
