fairly advantageous

The problem with seeking advantage is the sacrifice of (healthy) fairness.

Not seeking advantage is not easy. This seems to be natural. Suppressing it may lead to hypocrisy. Fairness is probably allowing others the natural instinct of seeking advantage. But how do we protect ourselves from being exploited. That is the question. Perhaps.

Could you please tell us five things we don't know about you. More or less.

seeking advantage doesn`t necessarily sacrifice healthy fairness.
competitiveness isn`t a problem. calling it a problem clouds the issue of what competitiveness is. competitiveness is the survival urge at work. fairness, healthy or otherwise is a myth, one that can drain you of resources trying to make real.
there are also many a lawmaker at work writing laws to enforce the myth.
maybe healthy fairness actually contains competitiveness.

Your point helps me balance power versus force issues. I love to argue certain points because the ride expands the circle. Quarrels take unfair advantage of remaining immobile. Your argument has power, not the force of a quarrel, thanks
