Greed motivates unethical men and women to develop a win at all cost mentality. Rather than competition on a level playing field they seek to do whatever is necessary for them to acquire as much as they can for their own personal benefit. Individuals motivated by greed love money more than they love their neighbors.
When individuals compete on a level playing field the quantity and quality of the goods and services are enhanced, but when some individuals are provided with unfair advantages both the quantity and the quality of what is produced is greatly diminished.
The proper role of government is to protect the God given rights of the people and to protect them from the abuse of power by unethical individuals and corporations that would exploit others for their own personal benefit.
When government provide tax breaks and subsidies to some they allow some to deprive others of their lives, liberty and property. Governments tend to make laws that benefit some of the people at the expense of others.
It is the love of money that causes individuals to exploit rather than love their one another. Virtually all crimes can be traced back to man's desire to harvest the fruits of another man's labor.
To gain financially at the expense of others is morally repugnant to those that believe in liberty, equality and justice. If we focus on meeting the needs of others we will harvest according to the seeds we have sown.
Unfair Competition rewards unethical business owners and promotes the dog eat dog mentality..
There is nothing wrong with striving for success, if you are ethical in your actions. A true winner is not determined by how much they accumulate, it is based upon how much they give to those who will never be able to repay them.

Paying these gladiators of today millions of dollars to play a game while thousands of children die every day illustrates our priorities. The fact that the average NBA Basketball players earns over $5,000,000 a year which is ten times as much as the average brain surgeon
While war is the ultimate form of competition, peace is the manifestation of cooperation and mutual respect.
Competition leads to hostility and war while cooperation leads to peace, prosperity and freedom.
