Children who are taught as above, that COMPETITION is more honorable than COOPERATION --- naturally evolve into being Domineering-People and participating often in Domineering- Coalitions --- that set out to win at the expense of those whom they defeat. In competitions the primary distinction is between winners who are Honored; and defeated-losers who are NOT-Honored. In the Absence-of-Losers it is not possible to Honor- Winners. Winning is implicitly about successful Domination-Over-Losers. The language which is often used makes that point explicitly in crude ways. In communities which are Dominated by Domineering-People, many young people are not truly encouraged to participate in Mitigating-Defeats by Emphasizing-Cooperation-and- Colaboration -- in the Intentional-Absence-of-Competition. Young people are conditioned to "think" and "feel" in terms of Win-or-Lose, Fight-to-Win, Control-to-Win, Sacrifice-Others-to-Win, and Do-Not-be-Sympathetic-with- Losers. Such training does not lay robust foundations for the Many-Gracious-Ways-of-Shalom, for Communal-Health, or for Personal-Health-embedded-within-Communal-Health. The foundations for Personal-and-Communal Integrations-and- Integrities are ignored, and civility crashes. Negativity reigns supreme in destructive ways. Be-Together in the Many-Gracious ways of Shalom. (c) 2007 by Paul A. Smith in "Search for Honesty and Integrity" (On Being Yourself Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
