COOPERATION VS. COMPETITION
Liberal friendly quotes:
"Union gives strength."
-- Aesop, The Bundle of Sticks
"We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly,
we shall all hang separately."
-- Benjamin Franklin, at the signing of the Declaration of Independence
And from the other side...
"There are only two forces that unite men -- fear and interest."
-- Napoleon, Maxims
"Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who
do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not
deserve to live."
-- Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, p. 289
"It must never be forgotten that nothing that is really great
in this world has ever been achieved by coalitions, but that it
has always been the success of a single victor. Coalition successes
bear by the very nature of their origin the germ of future crumbling,
in fact of the loss of what has already been achieved. Great,
truly world-shaking revolutions of a spiritual nature are not
even conceivable and realizable except as the titanic struggles
of individual formations, never as enterprises of coalitions."
-- Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, p. 516-17
