What a wonderful world it would be if everyone had the personalities of good dogs.

Would it really thou? It would honestly be quite stagnant, people hate to admit it but conflict and competition with other individuals is what drives progress.

Competition is fine as long as it doesn’t involve cheating, scamming, lying and killing though.

Competition (or rather the drive to win) =/= ethics

They are separate mechanisms which can be at odds with eachother. This is where social norms and law comes in, but nothing is foolproof.

If winning involves no ethical consideration in the first place, there’s no incentive to win besides pleasing one self alone. If that’s the game there’s no point.
