Angels make effective use of competitive spirit to promote a wholesome rivalry and inspire a quality of service.  In advanced civilizations co-operation is more efficient than competition.  Improved tools, ingenious and efficient machines, determine the survival of contending groups in the arena of advancing civilization.  Competition is healthfully stimulated by diversification of races. 
In the most continental nation of a neighboring planet, there is keen competition, but not only in industry but also in games, skills, science and letters.  Time and circumstance select the fitter for survival.  In schools of Planetary Princes exists a wholesome rivalry among the races of men to enter them. 
Although competition in industry is exceedingly wasteful and highly ineffective, it should not be eliminated if it abrogates the fundamental freedoms of the individual.  Competition is essential to social progress, but competition, unregulated, breeds violence.  Competition-gravity ever pulls man down toward the beast level; poverty is his natural and tyrannical estate.  Ruthless competition based on narrow-minded self-interest is ultimately destructive of even those things which it seeks to maintain.
