It is said that money is the root of all evil. Money is a measuring stick for actions and deeds. My belief is that competition is the root of all that is bad. An argument is a form of competiton. At the core of all fights and disagreements is competition. Competiting for who is right, who has access, and who gets what, leads to what many would say is what is bad within our society (Poverty, crime, divorce). We are taught at an early age that all advancement comes through competiton. What do we lose when we have to compete in every human interaction. What do we really win when another has to lose? How annoying is it having to deal with a competition sick individual? This question is competing with other ideas in your mind right now.
