Competition cannot be healthy in terms of the individual because it breeds insecurity, even if you end up winning. Competition instead is productive. Insecurities can be extremely productive depending on your agenda, which you kind of pointed out. To further that even more, is it even really a competition if one side has a rule advantage? It’s like playing a game of basketball but the other team can goaltend and foul. Can you still win? Sure. Is it a competition? I guess. But not a fair one, especially if you’re told that the score at the end of the game is a fair outcome, and that the victory of either side should be considered equally valid.
