Organizations will certainly become stronger if you stick to the law of the jungle. But society loses stability.
America is a good example. The number of lawyers per population in the United States is 20 times that of Japan. It is said that the number of psychological counselors is 50 or 60 times. A competitive society is that it becomes a society that needs such people in large quantities.
Many people think that “Communism is destroyed and capitalism has won”, but I think that even the current capitalism is full of defects. Because Communism was a dream story, it just happened to win.
Capitalism also has spectacular logic. Capitalist individuals strive to maximize profits according to their own personal interest. Then, it is led to “the invisible hand of God”, harmony of the whole is achieved, the whole society is enriched.
Recently it became “market fundamentalism”. It is most efficient if you leave it to the market, the state intervention should be as few as possible. If I exaggerate a little to say, we do not need a state confine to the economy. It means that the state only need to do diplomacy, military affairs, public security, etc.
The premise of market fundamentalism is “Let’s fight fair first”. Fighting fairly, those who bought take all of the profits. It is called “Winner takes all”. It is a result of fair fighting so there is nothing wrong with it. It is OK for winner to take it all. This is the logic.
However, this logic violates “cowardice” according to Japanese “Bushido spirit”. It is coward that big people fight against small people and win. It is cowardly that a strong person abuses a weak person. Bushido spirit teaches so. However, market fundamentalism does not care about such a thing.
As for the Bushido spirit, I will briefly explain it on another blog.
