A little bit of Beto bashing on CNN

She makes some valid points.

BTW, the guy has nothing on Obama...the comparison is almost an insult.

I don't get what you're saying. Beto opposes the wall because his dad was in the mafia? Do they partner up with drug smugglers from Mexico to get drugs over the border in unprotected areas? Do they cooperate in human trafficking?

It's normal to get depressed after a big campaign.

I just got back from Vietnam and I'm a little moody, a little off my game.

Why does somebody have to lose in order for you to win in life?

Why does it matter?

You still have the same life.

The discussion was about politics and elections, and the distinct possibility that Beta might be my next president. There are winners and losers in elections.

But hey, if you think it will make (for example) Hillary feel better about her loss to Trump in the 2016 election if you present her with a participation medal then knock yourself out. After all, I want you to be happy.

"It pays to be a winner" has been your mantra on many things, including white man conquering America, not just in this case.

I was just curious because this is the same crap that Jordan Peterson peddles.

What happened to the other Beto. Remember shortly after Trump won there was a special election in Georgia that Hollywood dumped a trillion dollars in? That guy was supposed to be the next big thing.

See, Obama never had a job either, but it worked with him. Now it looks like the money is looking for the next charismatic nobody. How often can lightening strike?

The ROI for voting for Trump is liberal tears.

That's a very poor investment.

Right, it's illegal to support a politician that's out of your own state.

Competition is an aspect of human nature. true.

But cooperation plays a much larger role.

It's the reasons why humans are the apex predators we are.

You can't express support if you can't vote for someone?

Cooperation just means raising the level of competition from the individual to the group. Instead of man vs man or man vs nature it becomes group vs group or group vs nature.

Absolutely not. Cooperation plays an important role in pack animals like ourselves but we are constantly competing even with those we cooperate with.

It is absolutely the same. Every single second we're on this earth we're competing with other humans, other animals, and even plants for resources at the most basic level. As you move up through the levels to human social structures we are still competing in every aspect of life.

Life's not fair, and life's not nice.

Competition is just one way we can interact with people. We can choose to be competitive or choose another way to be in contact.
Some people are unaware that it is even a choice and just react or act out as they have learned. Slaves to their emotions and/or learned patterns of behavior.
Can be fun but time will always make the competitor a loser in the end. Having competition a foundation of your life is a childish choice.


If you see a Buddha in the road, ask which gender pronouns they prefer and then kill them.

You must have gotten yourself a good bottle of pills if you're saying that's wrong. Competition and cooperation are not mutually exclusive, nor do they cancel each other out.

It's the cooperation that resulted in human evolution, not competition.

Sceince.


If you're not competing, doesn't mean you are a loser.

It just means that you're not a jock.

Isn't saying "everything is a competition" implying that completion and cooperation are mutually exclusive?

I said that both play a role.

The fact that you're equating "jock" with basic competition just shows you lack understanding as to what competition really is. And once again, competition and cooperation are not mutually exclusive, nor do they cancel each other out

And I'm still puzzled by the early 80s "jock" use as an insult

We make exchanges and comprise some of our individual interests in favor of larger group interests all the time, but even when we make those compromises we are still working toward what we perceive to be our own best interests in the aggregate.

Why do we nurture our family and friends? In direct exchange for them returning that nurture in some form whether that return occurs sooner or later. Why do we virtue signal? The return we're aiming for may not be material, but may take the form of social capital and influence. Regardless of the form of the anticipated ROI it's ultimately still self-serving in one way or another.

"You're better than that" is notable and laudable on the social basis precisely because - for the most part - humans are not better than that. Same as when man bites dog. That's usually not how it goes.

I was stuck on the use of the word "Everything."

I don't agree that it's everything.

It's pervasive?

Sure.

So is cooperation.

We function best in cooperation mode.

It is interesting that you are unable to choose not to compete or do you not realize you have that choice.

Then again it can be scary seeing what is happening, deciding on an action and taking responsibility for the outcome. But then again maybe it is just best being a grossdad.

Exactly so. Try a basic 3-person household as an example. Two adults and one kid. I guarantee you that whenever there's a choice to be made it will usually amount to 2 vs 1. Whether its both adults against the kid or whether the kid is successful in divide and conquer. The 2-person team is cooperating at the team level in order to prevail against their opposition.

Fair ain't got nothing to do with it.

reality is more complex than human mental concepts

We come up with a category like competition and see that it describes a lot of behaviors

But conceiving of things by means of a category is also a shiny object that blinds us from other aspects of these behaviors

So "everything" in the family unit is about competition?

No cooperation?

It is interesting that you are unable to choose not to compete or do you not realize you have that choice.

Then again it can be scary seeing what is happening, deciding on an action and taking responsibility for the outcome. But then again maybe it is just best being a grossdad.

Your second statement is completely irrelevant to the first statement.

There is no choice of whether or not to compete. If you stop competing you die.

How do you get any waves at all with a non-compete mindset?

Certain people hear the word "competition" and they start blithering about "winning" and "jocks"

Certain people say "competition is everything."

It's not.

Look up "symbiosis."

I'm see a big collision of frames here.

Can you?

Even in the most cooperative unit of all, the basic human family, the family members are still competing for resources within the family.

Competition is also subconscious


Exactly so. Try a basic 3-person household as an example. Two adults and one kid. I guarantee you that whenever there's a choice to be made it will usually amount to 2 vs 1. Whether its both adults against the kid or whether the kid is successful in divide and conquer. The 2-person team is cooperating at the team level in order to prevail against their opposition.

Fair ain't got nothing to do with it.



My orginal statement was that competition isn't everything.

So we agree?

I try to make choices to meet the situation and achieve the goal. There are a multitude to choose from depending on what the goal is.
I earn $ by not competing with rival businesses. I just do the best job I can and let the chips fall.
As for getting waves it would be hard in socal for reasons we all know. That is one reason I rarely surf there any longer.
Nothing wrong with competing I think you just have to take it for what it is, passing entertainment. Ascribing to being a winner or a loser based on one activity in a day is stupid.


If you see a Buddha in the road, ask which gender pronouns they prefer and then kill them.

Competition =/= winners and losers since success is a spectrum

You're competing with rival businesses whether you think you are or not

So "everything" in the family unit is about competition?

No cooperation?

I feel sorry for your kids.


That's because you didn't raise you kid and you don't know WTF you're talking about.

Politics usually occur whenever there are more than 2 people in the room. There aren't always conflicts but uncompromised unity where everyone thinks exactly the same is exceedingly rare in the human condition.

That is, unless we're talking about NPDs. poke

BESIDES THAT, competition between different ideas is a good thing. It's how the lesser ideas (I assume this berry is edible and we should try it) get separated from the better ideas (I'm worried that berry will kill you, so let's not take chances).

You are all competitive assholes or you wouldn't even be here.

You clawed, scraped and fought your way through millions (to billions) of competitors to attain The Egg

Think of that, you winning meant millions (or billions depending upon your daddy's ejaculate) were fated to death.

So fvck you and congratulations.

You all won.

Go to the spots where there's no jocks dummy.

Who are you competing with right now that if you lose you will DIE?

You must be winning since you're still typing.

There can't be any losers here since we're all alive.

Even though Charming_Sophosticate lives in his mom's basement, he too is a winner.

Uhh, you know none of that is how it works, right? Not on any level in any organism. IRL those sperm are competing with each other to be the one.

Movie is a comedy and my reply was in accord with the tone of the post.

Also, sperm don't compete because sperm don't have a conscience.

You are confusing the act of randomness with competition.

It's like when people ascribe human traits to dogs.

It's fun to do but it's delusional.

I don't think you've thought this through. Competition is an element of evolution itself.

Competition is not limited to humans. Or mammals. Or fauna.

Who are you competing with?

What did you win?


It should be a pretty straight forward answer since EVERYTHING is a competition.

Dumbass.
