On Competition and Cooperation

The nature of competition is to divide;
And to award some with plenty;
The nature of competition is to divide;
And to leave some without any.

The nature of cooperation is to draw together;
And to supply for the common good.
The nature of cooperation is to draw together;
Surely to cooperate we should.

  1. Well, yes. But who doesn’t want more? Why should the lazy and unmotivated and unproductive get the same as me. This is where the USSR failed.

      • That’s a silly question. The market pays what peoples skills are worse. Anyone can be a janitor, it is relatively commonplace skill and is priced accordingly. A Harvard MBA, not so much. Do you think I am going to buys hares in a company which is run by people who do not have the requisite skills and experience to run it? Do you think I would fly on an airplane piloted by the guy who loads the bags (who has no flight school training)? If the janitor knew how to run the company he could get out in the marketplace and compete for a position and be paid accordingly. If he thinks he is paid to little he can ask for a raise and watch as his job is given to another person who prices themselves appropriately to their skillset.
