Between Competition & Cooperation.

When considering something of a social nature, particularly between groups or hypotheticals, it can be immediately & consistently useful to assess by two values, competition & cooperation. It would seem reasonable to me that the most important agreements are a detailed balance of these, with relevant terminology. It extends from the personal to the larger, less spoken agreements. As a change of perspective, to a simpler way, it is refreshing and may perhaps invigorate your interest to investigate an arena.


The current economic system, in my opinion, is much more simply described as competition. Indeed, this is the enshrining feature in some definitions. This competition appears to have frequent unhealthy results which capitalists would describe as some unfortunate re-ordering of the economic system to a new balance of supply & demand with whatever tweaks they want to throw in. Communists hold a similar perspective, except with a cyclic nature, and an attitude of evolution.

Observe economic ideas in the light of competition & cooperation. A brief mention, consider the outcomes of laissez-faire capitalism as 1: infinite and of communism as 1:1. What would 1:100 look like?


A question could be raised about global agreement on international standards, forms of co-operation upon a competitive arena. It is consistent to develop an idea of an international standards from the pre existing ideas of person, community, and state. Nearly all people agree to live without public violence, although violence is a realistic part of our nature. This co-operation about violence extends beyond a pair, a mob, a nation to the international arena, where standards of war and human rights represent an elevating consistency from the individual to globe.
