From biased and corrupt competition to mutual cooperation
Question from the Internet:
“Are all systems of competition inherently biased to favour those who create the rules, which tends to require the removal of the rule-makers from the competition for truly neutral competitive environments?”
On one hand, you are right, all competitions are biased in favour of those creating the rules. On the other hand, it does not matter if we remove the rule makers, as anybody replacing them will inevitably end up distorting and corrupting the competition in their favour as well.
We simply have no “neutral environment” at present as we are all — knowingly or unknowingly — driven by a 100% self-serving, self-justifying, subjective and individualistic inner software. So it does not matter what we claim, what we honestly believe in. The moment we gain power and the ability to organize and control things, our inherent ego will inevitably start to distort and corrupt everything in our own favour if we have the chance and ability to do so.
And as our experience from history and from our present society shows it does not matter what we try and who is setting the rules, our human systems become increasingly corrupt, and unequal until they completely collapse.
In order to build a truly “neutral environment” with equal chances and opportunities, where we all start competing for the sake of the whole collective instead of the instinctively cancer-like competition, we need a unique educational method that can teach us to act and exist above and against our instinctive self-interest for the sake of one another.
This is actually the only way we can together start solving our mounting global problems and safeguard our continuing, collective human survival in nature’s fully integrated and interdependent system.
