I like what you just said. Most have a quite inflationary use of the word love.
And I love sports. But the more you focus on that it becomes aout individuals, the seperate players in a team, or in stuff like tennis, biathlon, skiing, ... it's about the people winning or loosing.
And a great way to get rolemodels on how to handle that. Because it's competition after competition and a circus traveling together from place to place you can see a great dynamic and the fact the one who constantly is around the first three places will ultimately win the season.
Star Wars had to take a lot of rejection from film studios and now look at it. That's also kind of a competition. You can only have some kind of success if you compete.

Here in the UK over the last few years there has come into existence that there

are no winners.... and therefor no losers. The result of this is there is nothing

left to strive for (no black and white only a drab grey?)


I can see the difference it has made .... my children were incentivised to improve

that with some effort, the next time they could improve on their results, whether

in sport education or life.

My grandchildren's generation have no such incentive ......winners or losers they

all get the same accolades or prizes.

This in my opinion produces the butt hurt 'snowflakes' we have today with little

drive or ambition, and without that all areas of progress wither.

I believe you can learn how to be successful. How to make realistic goals.

Evil is subjective? Says so much about you.

Perspective boils down to right and wrong. It doesn't matter how you feel about it , wrong is wrong. And it's VERY easy to define.

The conditioning worked on you too.

United we stand, divided we fall.

According to your premise everyone who thinks/believes other wise to your belief

is conditioned



Rather dogmatic .... and a contradiction in terms surely


Whatever happened to free speech

I said it is working on you, don't go all hyperbolic.

Defend the Paradigm at all costs.
