The only battle of value is the one you fight for yourself with yourself.

Politeness is the poison of collaboration.”
Edwin Land, scientist and inventor

Competition is rooted in conquest for scarce resources. Sport has evolved into a contest of who gets to be recognized, rewarded, and survive. Winner takes all, and others get none.

When human needs are satisfied, those who prevail become gene-pool resources. But productivity is enhanced when the needs of all players are supported. We need those who don’t win in order to find change. It should not be “winner takes all.”
