Again these are artifical competitions. Sports does not equal life and its not really good training for life except perhaps for a corporation where workers must prance like trained dogs which comptete for the approval of the master.
What planet are you living on? Last time I looked, about 93% of people in this country go on to work in corporate America after going to school and corporate America is based on competition for those who want to succeed, and mediocrity for those who just want to get by. This is the system, like it or not. The rich do get richer and the poor do get poorer, generally (not always) because the rich work harder at it. It may not be fair, you may not like it like that, but it is the way the world works.
The idea of a socialist utopia where there is no competition has been tried many times and it has always failed. The reason America works is because the competition is tempered with compassion. This is the most competitive society in the world but also the most generous.
Huh? "Prancing trained dogs?" Either you've never played sports, or you never worked for a large company, or else you done one, the other, or both and sucked at it. And believe me, I'm being kind, 'cuz the only other conclusion I can thik of is that you're an anti-corporate leftist who thinks big business is the root of all evil. The other conclusion is that you're goofing on us and I'm the one looking silly. It wouldn't be the first time.
