The problem with this extrapolation is that a lot of people can excel, from every categorization, for most 'jobs'. Sports are a special, like acting, very few of any characterization garner the view of the public worthy of the pay. Entertainment is a queer aspect of human society.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.
