A good question G D
Let me wipe my grin off and give a serious answer.
Please let me show cooperation as good as it does not produce a loser or victim and competition as evil as it produces a loser or victim.
As I understand evolution, we need to both compete and cooperate as conditions dictate.
We default to cooperation as that is a better position in survival terms because we do not take the chance of losing to a competition were we to initiate it.
The problem, as I see it and what causes some to go to evil, is that we seem to have to compete to find the fittest of us.
We are natural competitors even as we know that cooperation is a better survival position.
I cannot see a way out of this catch 22, Can you?
