I think that I agree with on you on a few levels at least...
In business, my company specifically, we have a desire to attain "Market Share" preferablly MORE than the competition...
This desire, it could be incorrectly identified as greed, allws the "group" to survive and bring MORE people into the group (additional employees)
and aid them in survival.
This is the cruxt of capitalism. The BEST and HARDEST WORKING achieve and the incompetent and lazy GRIEVE...
That is a system that WORKS because it allows for indevidual acheivement and recognition of that greater acheivement by more compensation in line with
more contribution. This creates a self sustaining culture of greatness.
Socialism FAILS miserably because it allows the LEAST compitent/LEAST contributing(LAZIEST) to receive the SAME rewards as the MOST compitent/MOST
contributing which IMMEDIATELY causes the great ones to say "SCREW IT" and ALL creativity/extra hard work to solve extra hard problems evaporates in
the wind mediocrity.
It is MANDATORY, in business at least, that ALL players have the GOOD OF THE GROUP at the forefront of the indevidual goals and targets. A collection
of supermen who are all aiming at something different will fall to a gaggle of decent performers who are focused bring down the superdudes. Mainly
because the super dudes will inevitably begin to fight with eachother over which is the right course to persue, which causes lost time spent toward
the wiping out the middle of the roaders.
While the middle of the roaders are closing in on them 100% of the time they are at it. This causes the advantage held by the supers to be so greatly
diminished they will lose 99% of the time.
