: : If all you Socialist/Communists hate competition so much why are you all competing with me and Gort et al. to get us to see the errors of our ways?

: Becuase we think you're wrong. We are not oppressing you, or going against our principles when we disagree with you, in fact we are in fundamental agreement with our principles in doing so, debate is the stuff society is made of. You're free to say what you will, we're free to disagree with you.

Yes, I understand that, it's also the principle that I believe. But Marxists have the idea that outside of philosophy/ideals, competition is a bad idea.
If competing between us is a good thing, as we seem to agree, in order to arrive at a closer approximation of the truth, why wouldn't the same process also be a good thing in other areas as well?
