Re: How to be non-competitive in a competitive world

Andrew, you associate competition with cruelty, ruthlessness, callousness and you associate non-competition with empathy, compassion, mercy. But when I look up the meanings of competition, I don't find those meanings. These are associations you choose to make to reject competition and promote non-competition. IMO this is a clear case of a Straw Man fallacy (that's why I more or less stopped following this thread, although it seemed interesting at first).
