Re: Competition—the Struggle for Excellence or Victory?
I'd just like to add a few words of my own opinion.
Competition is actually a passive process. Everyone and everything competes at some level whether they are aware of it or not. The active competition of sports and war is actually aggression, and is certainly learned. The problem I see with aggressive competition is the desire to eliminate. Diversity is the key to evolution. Thus I feel the aggressive motivations should be replaced with a desire to enhance diversity. At the least, diversity should take priority to aggression.
