Competition or compassion?
Most people support the idea of competition whereas others say that competition is the sworn enemy of man. Indeed, I would say that competition eventually would kill us.
Everyone has his own reasons for supporting his argument. For example, supporters of competition say that competition is a supporting force that encourages one to try to excel in one's field. Whereas, people against the idea of competition argue that competition spoils good relations between friends.
I support the latter argument. Competition is a barrier in human relations. A person with a competitive mind cannot co-operate with anyone. He becomes selfish, and actually he is spoiling his own life.
We can see competition in the educational field. Those who know that "The more education you give to others, the more you gain", would never encourage competition.
A people without competition reflect the growth of a nation. The world would be a better place without competition.
