IS Competition A Thing Of The Past?
Equality has replace competition, society dictates that ever person should have the same opportunities. The requirement is that you must be qualified, not necessarily the most qualified. I played organized sports as a child you earned your position and you were expected to put forth effort. Organized sports taught me competition the best players played. Now every kid has to play every game I do not agree.
I have kids and I don't agree with everyone getting awards or trophies. Competition is a good thing and allows people to get better and strive to be more. I think the Liberals have it all wrong. Kids don't learn how to fail in today's society and then as they get older and do fail in the real world they crash and burn. They aren't given the tools to deal with the failures. And it all starts on the playgrounds and on the fields.
I think people are trying to phase out competition because they don't want feelings to get hurt. But really, it is only hindering their emotional abilities and not allowing them to grow as individual people. The way that our culture is going in 20 or so years when the young ones now are out on their own they will spend more time whining about life not being fair then trying to fix their problems or become better at what they are doing.

If you could change one thing in your past, what would it be"I would never drink a drop of alcohol. I am an alcoholic , and this has ruined so much of my life. Am on bankruptcy . I would go back in time, and never drink. What would you do, to make your life better?

Is the Company Man a thing of the past?I believe that people have become increasingly aware through disappointment, redundancy and limited career options with trusting a corporate to manage their career and so this generation is doing it differently. Any views out there guys?
